The years of passively watching Valentine’s Day pass are long gone. Grab the usual suspects, the sisterhood or the squad. Now that you’ve decided that it’s the perfect time to do something with your girls, avoid the overbooked restaurants and rather celebrate at home.

We’ve got some excellent suggestions for what you can do with a few items you can buy* with your RCS Store Card that gives you up to 55 days interest free** on your purchase.

 

A sidenote: remember to de-sanitize your home after your friends left.
