No matter your status this V-day, you’ll be able to find plenty of ways to pamper yourself on the cheap. Whether you’re spending it solo, celebrating with your friends, or cozying up with Mr. Right (or just Mr. Right Now), check out these cupid-inspired packages:

Spa and The Single Girl Spend Friday the 13th getting a glow with a chocolate body scrub or soothing tense muscles with a hot stone massage at GemVie MediSpa in midtown Manhattan. All services are 15 percent off for singles. If you make it a girls’ night and bring a single friend, you’ll both get 25 percent off.

Boyfriend Not Included Prefer not to sleep alone on Valentine’s Day? Gather your friends and head to The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park for a grown-up sleepover. You’ll get a four-person room, in-room manicures, complementary food and beverages, and the option for either a “girls’ night in” with movies, music and snacks; or a “girls’ night out” with private car service to a concierge-recommended hotspot and late-night gourmet treats. Prices are $599 per person based on four-person occupancy.

Champagne + Massages= Love Disconnect from the daily grind and indulge with your sweetie by checking into a hotel that has an onsite spa. Extra brownie points if it’s on the beach. The Watercolor Inn & Resort in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida has a Valentine’s Day special that includes a room with a view of the Gulf of Mexico; champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries; two 50-minute Swedish massages at the InnSpa; one three-course dinner; and daily complimentary breakfast. It’s going on February 10th through the 18th and starts at $390 a night with a two-night minimum.

Choose Your Own Romance: Whether you want to get out of town or simply escape to a hotel close to home (you’ll skip the pricey plane ticket but still score maid service!), check out the Valentine’s Day deals at Hotels.com. Four-star rooms at the Sofitel Chicago O’Hare come with cozy fireplaces, are located just two blocks from Rosemont Theatre, and start at less than $100 a night. Bonus: You’ll get a $20 gift certificate to 1-800-Flowers.com so you’ll save on those red roses you meant to buy anyway.
