Flying solo this Valentine's Day? Here are some suggestions on how to show yourself some love, 365 days a year:

🌱 Forget roses, find a unique plant friend. Local nurseries like Fractal Cactus, Mother Earth Gardens or Highland Nursery are open during winter.

🍰 Buy yourself a fancy dessert. Rose Street Patisserie in St. Paul is a fan favorite, or try Vegan East in Minneapolis for those with dietary restrictions.

🎶 Go see live music. Most shows aren't love-themed, and you can't feel alone in a crowd of sweaty people.

📚 Find a new book for cheap at bookstores like Magers and Quinn, The Book House in Dinkytown and Midway Books.

🍽 Try a new-to-you restaurant. Reservations might be booked, but look for takeout options. Check out our recommendations.
