The Millennial Valentine’s Day


Millennials have redefined relationship structures, taking things into their own hands and empowering themselves by making their own choices. They marry later in order to tick items such as degrees, careers, businesses, travel and creating things off their individual bucket lists earlier.

So what does a millennial Valentine’s Day look like? Online comparison website,, helps us compare the alternative ways millennials are likely to be spending this Valentine’s Day:


For those not experiencing the financial struggle of being a millennial, travelling will be a top option. Top travelling experiences are bathing in the Blue Lagoon in Iceland, seeing the great pyramids of Giza in Egypt, walking the Great Wall of China, soaking up the sun in Byron Bay Australia or making pizza in Italy.

An Insta-Series

Visual and vibrant, nothing can show off your relationship status better than Instagram, especially through the trending Instagram series. Millennial couples are likely to show the world what Valentine’s Day looks like by creating an exciting and creative Insta-series.

Netflix and chill
