Roses, chocolates, fancy dinners, lingerie, expensive bottles of bubbly and high expectations. That's what Valentine's Day feels like its supposed to be all about. Oh, that and love, of course, let's not forget about love.
Except for the love bit, it all just sounds so stressful to me, but then again, I'm a stoner girl. This year, instead of creating a list of stoner girl approved gifts you should get your sweetie we're going to do something else. Let's talk about experiences you can share and small things you can do for yourself and your loved ones to brighten the cold dark days of winter.
Send a Sweet/Funny Meme
Who doesn't love memes? Only a monster, obviously. They're a super easy, no commitment way of showing all your friends that you're at least thinking of them. Take a moment to text a silly picture to a pal or simply tag your buds in the comments section on your favourite Instagram meme account.
Check Out A Cool Class
Instead of buying each other presents why not consider expanding your horizons together? Take a class like Puff Pass And Paint if you live near Washington, Portland or Denver, the cities they operate in.
What about Pipe Making 101, also in Denver? Or a cannabis yoga class in Toronto, or any number of local 420 classes and workshops in your area. If you can't find any local events using Google, visit a local dispensary, many put on or host events and if there is anything happening, they'll probably know about it.
Another option for those in the Toronto area is attending one of the Pleasure Peaks workshops or tantric weekends - very appropriate for Valentine's Day, yeah? Pleasure Peaks is an all encompassing brand of sex, cannabis, and spirituality. Offering everything from Tantric Ganja Yoga, Pampered Pussy: Mary Jane Spa Dates and more.
Level Up on Personal Goals
Molly Peckler is a lifestyle coach and match maker based in Los Angeles. Her company, Highly Devoted uses research backed methods to help build confidence and make happiness a priority. Peckler is 420 friendly and proud of it too so she's going to be a great person to help motivate you and remind you why you should be your number one Valentine this year!
Keep It Chill
No matter what you decide to do to celebrate Valentine's Day, Galentine's Day or Singles Awareness Day this year, remember to take the time to enjoy yourself. Ease up on the pressure to outdo everyone else. Don't feel like you need to break the bank or pull off the perfect romantic evening to show your love you care.
All you really need to celebrate the day is yourself, your time and maybe a meme or two.
