5. Netflix Night

Valentine’s Day is not complete without sappy love stories, no matter who you’re with! It’s the perfect day to see the newest romantic comedy in theaters, or stream the entire “To All the Boys I Loved Before” trilogy. Friends are the best company to cry with while watching “50 First Dates”, “Something Borrowed”, or “10 Things I Hate About You.”

4. Give your friends a "pizza" your heart

Do you want a saucy Valentine’s Day? What about a cheesy one? Say “be mine” to a heart-shaped pizza! Order a Hungry Howie’s, Little Caesars, or Cottage Inn Pizza on Valentine’s Day. You can also use your dining dollars at Jet’s and get a heart-shaped pizza delivered right to you.

3. Shop til you Drop

Not receiving a gift from a significant other? No problem! Take Valentine's Day to treat yourself by taking a trip to the mall. Shop the latest trends and fashion with your friends, enjoying all of the Valentine's Day sales.

2. Don’t Go "Baking" My Heart

Sometimes, you "donut" know how much fun Valentine's Day is until you make desserts with your friends! Your friends truly will appreciate your baked goods because nothing says friend-chip goals like chocolate chip cookies.

1. The Sweetest Part…

Are you busy with classes on Valentine's Day? Everyone knows that the best part of Valentine's Day is actually the day after, otherwise known as the day when all of the candy goes on clearance! Grab your friends and take them to the grocery store to snack on delicious heart-shaped peanut butter cups, chocolate-covered strawberries, and those colorful little candy hearts that taste like chalk.
