Spoiler alert: you can be your own Valentine. Take a deep breath, open up that ‘single and thriving’ vision board, and let go of society’s bias that prioritises romantic love above all. Because as much as receiving an extravagant bunch of flowers to your door (cue your housemate’s ‘awww’s and ‘ooh’s), know that being able to rely on yourself for love, respect and treats along the way is always a safer position to be in than seeking validation from external sources. Buy the flowers, chocolates, takeaway and wine and know that the enjoyment of those things is not reliant on a partner to provide them!
So whether you’re feeling single and empowered or are mourning a recent break-up and are in need of a pick-me-up, we’ve compiled a list of the best ‘to me, from me’ self-love gifts to warm your heart this February. Transform your room into the calming oasis you deserve with a Himalayan salt lamp or new candle, or treat yourself to the gift of relaxation with a spa day or fancy bubble bath, whatever helps you feel your best and most special, now’s the time to do it!
Repeat after us: I am enough, just as I am.
