Whether you're in a relationship, riding solo, or somewhere in the "It's Complicated" zone, don't rely on anyone else to get you what you want this Valentine's Day. This year, buy yourself a Valentine's Day gift. That way you know you'll get something you actually like instead of another piece of heart-shaped jewelry from your beau.
On a day made for celebrating the people you love, don't forget about yourself! Your relationship with yourself is the most important one you can cultivate. So in addition to your significant other, treat yourself this year. You deserve it, girl!
I highly recommend buying yourself flowers and chocolate, because a fresh bouquet makes any room look homier, and there is never a bad time for chocolate. But in addition to the Valentine's Day staples, buy yourself a real gift. Something cozy, something pretty, something inspirational. If you've had your eye on something for months, now's the time to go out and buy it.
But if there isn't an item you've been lusting after, you can still buy yourself something special. Don't shy away from the holiday: be your own Valentine and pick out something pink or heart shaped, like these items here. It's corny but it's cute, and it'll help you remember the importance of loving yourself.
