Art: W+G Creative
Though I can confidently admit that I'm pretty happy being single, after the past year of social distancing and limited dating, I've never been more tempted to order myself a bouquet of flowers on February 14th. The pandemic has been hard on everyone, but with the big day just around the corner and love heavy in the air (or at least, every shop window and website homepage), this year, self-love is truly the name of the game.

Parks and Recreation's Donna Meagle and Tom Haverford may have coined the phrase, “treat yourself ” a decade (yes, that long!) ago, but in this new quarantined world, the movement carries on with a newfound force. Whether you're single or paired up this V-Day, keep scrolling for our Valentine's Day gift guide—which includes pans you can use to whip up a candlelit meal for one and jewels that will add a little extra sparkle to your solo sweatpants wardrobe—that are sure to give you heart eyes when they (surprise!) show up outside your door.
