Valentine’s Day isn’t just a time to eat chocolates with your S.O.—it can also be a day to make indulgent plans with your friends, try a fun new date idea, or even look to the past for a memorable holiday. To inspire you to think outside of the box this Valentine’s Day, we’ve partnered with Senreve— the luxurious, multidimensional, and celeb-loved handbag brand—to create a guide of three fun Valentine’s Day activities to try this year, paired with the perfect bag to carry everything you need in style. Psst… they’re even offering special hand-painted monogramming for Valentine’s Day here.


Galentine’s Day with your squad

No S.O., no problem! Get your single ladies together and host your own Galentine’s Day party. Wine, chocolate, and at least three Netflix movies will ensure that everyone feels warm and fuzzy on the day of love. Looking for the perfect way to tote your chocolates and cards home before the big soirée? The Maestra bag conveniently converts into a backpack and carries even the biggest box of candy with ease—while also fitting your laptop, keys, wallet, and phone—ensuring your hands will be free to text all of your friends the party details.


Get schooled with your S.O.

If the stereotypical candlelit dinner seems too boring for you and your love, try taking a romantic class that will not only make for a fun evening, but also actually teach you a new skill. Cooking class (hello replacement for canned soup!), pottery workshop (um, Ghost anyone?) or even a painting class is guaranteed to make you both laugh over how bad—or surprisingly good—you are, while celebrating the bond that made them your Valentine in the first place. And to keep your belongings close without letting a clunky purse get in the way of your fun, the Coda Belt Bag in this Valentine’s Day-ready color will ensure you’re on theme and ready for class.

Look to the past

In the mood to surprise bae with a sweet gesture? Recreate your very first—probably a tad bit awkward—date. Whether you went bowling at your local alley, bonded over your mutual love of matcha at a cafe, or watched a cheesy flick, the sentiment will be cute and clear once your Valentine realizes what you’ve planned. Feeling extra lovey-dovey? Stash your laptop or iPad in this Senreve Doctor Bag and create a digital montage of your time together to show during the date. Bonus: It also has room for all of your makeup, in case the sentimental moment makes you teary-eyed and calls for an on-the-go touch-up.
