5 Gifts To Buy Yourself For Valentine’s Day

Ah, Valentine’s Day. The day that in centered around romance, the pressure to have a date, wear fancy undies, and go all out for that special person in your life. As a married woman, I always love an excuse to do a little something extra special for my hubby, but I also have a few things that bug me about Valentine’s day this year:

  1. My husband isn’t even going to be home. My hardworking man is earning his keep in another state this week, which means I’m alone and romanceless. 
  2. The truth is we should not need a holiday on the calendar to tell us it’s time to have a special night with our significant other. This should happen somewhat regularly.  What’s wrong with a random Tuesday in the middle of June? Nothing, that’s what.

That’s why I put together a list of 5 different things you can (and should!) buy for yourself this Valentine’s Day. I kept it to categories rather than specific items because no one knows what you like better than you! Read more
