Valentine’s Day is almost here! This holiday is meant to celebrate love, but too often it can be overrun with imagery about popping champagne bottles or sharing glasses of red wine. The good news is, there are so many other ways to get into the Valentine's Day spirit that don’t involve alcohol. Whether you’re spending the holiday with a partner, making it a Galentine’s Day, or just practicing some self-love, here are our favorite ways to enjoy Valentine’s Day alcohol-free.
- Try Something New
Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to do something special with someone you love. Think about what activities you’ve been meaning to try, and make a plan to spend Valentine’s Day experiencing something new. Maybe you’ve been talking about visiting a zoo, or trying an escape room. There are plenty of options for exciting activities that don’t involve alcohol.
- Get Creative
Look into what creative options are available in your area. You could take a cooking class, or visit a pottery or painting studio. No matter what creative endeavors you decide on, it’s an opportunity to develop a new skill, create new memories, and maybe even take home a cute keepsake.
- Enjoy Nature
Getting into nature is a great way to get in touch with your romantic side, and leave behind alcohol cravings while you’re at it. Consider going for a hike or visiting a local arboretum with your Valentine, or plan a picnic in the park (weather permitting!) complete with zero-proof drinks.
- Netflix and Chill
Don’t feel like going out? There’s no shame in ordering some takeout, getting into your sweats, and settling in for a rom-com marathon. This is a great way to spend quality time with your loved one, and avoid any outside pressures to drink. Enjoy your favorite ready-to-drink mocktails and a few sheet masks to keep things casual and cute.
- Mocktails at Home
If you want to elevate your night in, consider cooking your favorite meal at home and pairing it with a handcrafted zero-proof cocktail. It’s always fun to practice your mixology skills, and creating a personalized drink is a fantastic way to make the night feel really special.
