80 Handy February Hashtags for Instagram

by Katie Davies / January 16, 2022

Every year, January feels like it’s about a year long(!), and February arrives as a welcome change.

Sure, many of us will still have to deal with the cold and snow, and that’s annoying. It was cute and pretty at first but we’re super-tired of battling with it now.

That said, the promise of springtime and warmer weather is enough to get me through this short, cold month.

Plus, February is the month of lurve

Whether you decide to post Instagram pictures of yourself wrapped up in your winter woollies or videos of you and bae for Valentine’s Day, make sure you include these handy February hashtags.

(Bring on the heart emojis!)

Heads Up: February Is Good for More Than One Type of Engagement

First things first: February is a great month to be posting on Instagram.

Following a wintry January, people are much more likely to be indoors, scrolling through their social media feeds like there’s no tomorrow.

(I currently have a daily screen time of around four hours — but hey, who’s counting?!)

If users are spending more time consuming content from those they already follow on Instagram, they’re also spending more time looking for new accounts to follow.

After all, the digital generation is all about the love of the new… Don’t try to deny it!

By sprinkling hashtags throughout your post captions, you can attract your ideal follower, engage them, and — if your content is top-notch — maybe even convert them.

Can you imagine? *Daydreams*

Where to Put Your February Hashtags on Instagram

You’d be forgiven for thinking that you can only put Instagram hashtags in your feed posts, whether this is a Reel, single image, or carousel.

Nah, boo — you can also put them in your Insta Stories.

In fact, the limit is 10 per Story, but I wouldn’t personally recommend putting 10 on one Story. It would be a little bit crowded, don’t you think?

You also don’t have to stick to including hashtags in your selfie captions. Putting them in a comment underneath your post works just as well. *Nods enthusiastically*

Without further ado, let’s dive right into the goods.
