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.
  3. Who says this romantic day needs to be about someone else?? When is the last time you showed yourself the love and special treatment that you deserve?

Today’s post is about #3.  Just because Valentine’s Day is typically centered around someone else in your life doesn’t mean you should neglect yourself. Whether you are single and headed out on the town, have a hot date with your favorite person, are going out with the girls, or you’re like me and for whatever reason (married or not) you’ll be spending Valentine’s Day with no one but your dog, you can always do a little something for yourself. 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

5 Ways to Celebrate Valentine’s Day Without A Man

Valentine's Day Without A Man

Valentine’s day might be the holiday where we all celebrate love, but who says you need a significant other to enjoy it? I won’t lie, I’m excited to be spending Valentine’s day with my Mister, but the only reason I get to do that this year is because it happens to fall on a weekend, otherwise he’d be off and away somewhere out of state working like he is every week.  If my husband wasn’t around, I would definitely still make the day great and choose to celebrate love without my man.  Crazy? Not at all!

Here are a few ways that we can show ourselves the self love we deserve, whether you’re single, taken and can’t celenrate with you love, or maybe you’re in a relationship but you simply hate Valentine’s Day.  Whatever the reason you’re not out on a date, make a date with yourself and spoil yourself just a little bit.  Self love is something we all need to work on.
