Valentine's Day is upon us. Whilst we don't think expressing appreciation for your loved ones should be restricted to one day, it's a great reminder of the importance to make time for love. It's also a good time to indulge in a little self-care too, no one can pour from an empty cup.
Whether you’re paired up or single, there are plenty of things you can do when it comes to spending time with those you love. Here are a few ideas.
1. Dress Up For Date Night
Date nights are always fun, be it with your other half, friends, siblings, cousins or even parents. A date night is an especially great way to do something different with family members you usually don't spend quality time with.

2. Celebrate Galentine's Day
Popularised by the show Parks and Recreation, Galentine's Day involves setting time aside to celebrate your gal-pals. Female friendships are great support networks — from providing comfort after the eyebrow lady sabotages you (we've all been there) to providing support and accountability to enable you to live your best life.
Having brunch, a movie night, or pot-luck are fun ways to celebrate your friendship.
3. Practise Self-care
Self-care is about taking time out to recharge. It can be as simple as starting something you've always wanted to do, spending time alone at home or away, starting a new book, deep conditioning your hair, getting your nails done, or doing absolutely nothing.
Self-care can also mean spending time with those you love, but in all cases, it's about doing whatever you need to reenergise.
4. Show Others You Care
Do you want to show your friend, Mum or Dad etc, that you’re thinking of them this Valentine’s Day? Then why not send them an Afrocenchix gift set or gift card! You can order it online and we can send it straight to them – how easy, convenient and practical!
