Valentine’s Day is traditionally observed as a holiday meant for lovebirds, leaving the rest of us feeling just a little excluded. As a staunchly single (and happily so) woman, I’ve learned that the relationship-focused holiday is actually an optimal moment to celebrate the people around me who matter most (namely my best friend) and myself.
Following the tumultuous few years (plus a lifetime before that) womankind has been enduring, the occasion seems fitting for focusing on healing—with a hearty dose of self-care. So, I will not go empty-handed this holiday season just because I’m not one-half of a couple!
I’ve curated a selection of items that I will be gifting myself this Valentine’s Day, and I highly recommend you consider doing the same. Because while receiving gifts from someone else is fun and all, no one really gets you like you do.
