As Valentine's Day approaches, everyone sees the chocolate displays and the overflowing shelves of stuffed animals. They smell the overpowering scent of every flower in existence while at the grocery store and struggle to find a candy bar that is not heart-shaped. All of these sights and experiences grow to be quite irritating for all the lonely souls out there as they rush to the self-checkout all alone. They persist in fighting against the urge to buy those overpriced Dove chocolates after all and just for their sweet Valentine: themselves.

So, without further ado, here is the perfect playlist for all of you looking to sulk your way through Valentine's Day.

1. "La Vie En Rose" by Daniela Andrade

The French phrase 'la vie en rose' directly translates to 'life in pink'. All singles' lives are drowned in pink packaging around this time of year, so in a way you're living your own 'life in pink'. I suppose it isn't the exact same...

2. "I Can't Make You Love Me" by Dave Thomas Junior

No, you can't make them love you if they don't, BUT what if you have no one to begin with? You've lucked out, my friend!

3. "The Night We Met" by Lord Huron

Correction: "The Night You Met Nobody"

4. "I Want To Know What Love Is" by Foreigner

This is a classic song for a classic cry. Grab your tissues now.

5. "Someone You Loved" by Lewis Capaldi

Not only is Capaldi's voice gonna make you weep, but so is the fact that the word 'loved' is most definitely in past tense.

6. "Where's My Love" by SYML

... I feel as though the title is self-explanatory.

7. "Almost Lover" by A Fine Frenzy

The key word here is 'almost'.

8. "Love Stinks" by J. Geils Band

Yes, yes it does stink, and we are here for it.

9. "Hello" by Adele

What would I be doing if Adele, the queen of wallowing, didn't make it on this playlist? Listen and weep, my friends.

10. "All By Myself" by Celine Dion

Celine Dion always makes for a good sob session, right? All. By. Yourself.

11. "Landfill" by Daughter

Literally, the first line of this song is "throw me in the landfill". I suppose you may very well feel like trash right now...

12. "Give Me Love" by Ed Sheeran

Oh, Ed... Please, give these people love.

13. "Love Song" by Sara Bareilles

OK, OK, for your last song, let's get a little bit more joyous, shall we? This song is upbeat, it's catchy, and you can relate to Sara Bareilles. She didn't want to write a love song and you don't have anyone to write a love song about.

Happy Valentine's Day, all you crazy singles! Just be glad you don't have to share your chocolates.

5 Valentine's Day Gifts You Haven't Thought Of

Five more ideas to throw around that will hopefully help you find a great gift for someone you love.

19
views

Don't get me wrong, I love pictures and I love hanging them in my room, putting them on my desk but sometimes it gets old. Sometimes you want something other than the cliche flowers and chocolates. Maybe this year you want something different than a piece of jewelry. There are so many great gift options and if you're like me, you love to find the perfect one for your loved ones. So here are some ideas maybe you haven't thought of yet that your boyfriend or girlfriend or friend would love on February 14th.

If these still aren't the gift ideas you're looking for, don't freak out. You will find something amazing to make or buy. I love gift buying for any occasion but sometimes when I hit a dead end I stress out because I want it to be perfect. I have to remind myself that it's not the stuff that matters and it doesn't always have to be perfect, just meaningful. Take it from me and try not to stress too much over a gift but focus your energy on celebrating with your loved one.

1. Do something together

Instead of spending money on another necklace or more stuff spend it on memory. Buy tickets to a sports game or an amusement park and spend the day/night together having fun. Maybe there is a historic hotel with neat architecture or an amazing breakfast near you could spend the night at. You could even save your money for a trip over summer that you both have been trying to plan but never do.

2. Bake their favorite dessert

Even if it doesn't turn out perfectly, I'm sure they will appreciate the effort you put in. If they don't have a favorite or it's too complicated there are so many recipes out there you can find something unique and perfect for your significant other. For example, if you know they love strawberries instead of just making strawberry shortcake because that's the obvious dessert, do some research and I'm sure there are more uncommon, delicious strawberry desserts a little more personal.

3. Give them a Jar of Kisses for when you're not around

Yes, this is an old one but I think it's cute and you can personalize it. You can get a cute jar or container of any kind and decorate the outside with paint or permanent markers. Write a sweet message on the lid so they smile every time they open it. If you want to customize it even more, you can buy stickers to put on the bottom of the Hershey Kisses with either a message or a picture.

4. Make a bouquet out of something other than flowers

Make love letters and candy and fun little things you usually wouldn't buy like funny socks, smelly soap, a keychain or a t shirt from their favorite restaurant rolled up. You can be really creative with this one and make it exactly how you want. If you want it to look like flowers just cut tissue paper, crumple it on top of each "stem" (item), and tape it. It might not look exactly like a bouquet of roses but it will be more interesting for sure.

5. Find some cute pajamas

I feel like this is one I always wish I had more of. There are so many different styles, patterns, and materials that there so many options. PJ pants are something that doesn't seem romantic but we all like our movie nights in with snuggles too. My favorite brand is PJ Salvage because I love all of their prints. You can also search online at any department store for some great steals.

If these still aren't the gift ideas you're looking for, don't freak out. You will find something amazing to make or buy. I love gift buying for any occasion but sometimes when I hit a dead end I stress out because I want it to be perfect. I have to remind myself that it's not the stuff that matters and it doesn't always have to be perfect, just meaningful. Take it from me and try not to stress too much over a gift but focus your energy on celebrating with your loved one.
