Be Your Own Sweetheart This February

While you might think it’s the most clichéd of Hallmark holidays, lots of Brits love to splash out on Valentine’s Day, tipping the national spend over 1 billion pounds last year. It’s no surprise that a big portion of that spend goes on confectionary, followed closely by dining out and romantic getaways. If you’re loved up and have got the cash to splash, then Valentine’s Day probably looks good for you this year, but what about the rest of us?

Whether you’ve been married too long to bother, single or simply not keen on dropping a bundle on inflated February 14 prices, there is someone out there that will always value a little extra attention in the month of love; and that someone is YOU.

Turn Valentine’s Day into your very own love-in, where the focus is on the person you spend the most time with. Instead of buying chocolates for someone else, buy them for yourself! Buy yourself a bunch of flowers, or book a spa day or weekend retreat where you can take the time to unwind or explore at your own pace.

It’s called self-care and there’s even a day for it (International Self-Care Day on 24 July 2019). It’s the name given to the time you give back to yourself, when you feel you’ve given enough to others. Self-care days encourage mind and body wellness and positivity, helping you feel your best which then allows you to go out there give it all back to the world again; for work, family, volunteering or achieving a goal.

CSSC members will discover that not only can they find discounts for traditional Valentine’s Day treats like chocolates and dining out but they’ll also find great deals on things like spa treatments, gym membership, a trip to the cinema or a new pair of trainers.

When it comes to a bit of pampering, you can save with cashback rewards and voucher codes that give you access to discounts across a huge range of health and beauty products from cosmetics and therapeutic equipment to hair extensions and vitamins at a selection of stores and brands including Superdrug, Benefit, ghd and Glossy Box.

When it comes to sport and fitness, CSSC has a bounty of cashback rewards and offers for Wiggle and Evans Cycles and many other cycling specialists, Active Instinct and ArmourFlex for kit, England Rugby Store, Asics and all manner of golfing, sports and fitness deals both online and in store.

Book a weekend away with discounts on airlines, coaches, cruises and ferries, rooms with Accor, Best Western, Corus or Macdonald Hotels, or if you prefer to let one of our many partnered travel agents arrange everything for you we’ve got a long list of booking agents and websites.

How ever you choose to give something back to yourself this February, just make sure that you keep it up throughout the year, whether it’s a long bubble-bath, a day out in the country-side or half an hour of meditation, the more you give to yourself, the more you’ll have to give others.
