Though Valentine’s Day can make single people feel left out of the party, the reality is, the greatest love of your life isn’t your partner. Or even your friends. As cheesy as it sounds, the relationship you have with yourself is the most important one, and like all other dynamics, it requires nurturing. Whether you’re flying solo or are coupled up, take time this February 14th to treat yourself. From jewelry and clothing to spa-inspired goodies and more, here are our top 14 picks of Valentine’s Day gifts to give yourself:
DIY Plant Hanger Macrame Kit
When was the last time you truly picked up — and invested in — a new hobby? Consider learning the skill yourself rather than buying one expensive macrame decor item after another. With this fun kit from a female-founded company, you can create a plant holder for your green babies. It has everything you need, and it’s also eco-friendly. Win-win!
Abbott Lyon Love Yourself Necklace
Often, the very worst critic in our life is ourselves. While our friends and loved ones can count endless reasons why we’re worthy and lovable, we can find many excuses for why we are not. Rather than engaging in negative self-talk, purchase this 18K-gold plated, stainless steel necklace with rose quartz stones to remind yourself to be kind to yourself. After all, you only have one you.
Mini Vault Ultimate Sunday Riley Experience Limited Edition Kit
Nothing says true self-love quite like a stacked beauty routine. And now, thanks to this limited-edition Sunday Riley kit, you’ll be able to build your skincare regimen with ease. This Mini Vault collection includes 11 products that promise instant and long-lasting results.
After one of those too-long, too-stressful workdays, you finally settle in to relax with your go-to Netflix show and pour yourself a mug of warm tea. If you’ve recently become bored with your traditional flavors, consider this sampler that, as the name says, offers the ‘really good’ stuff. You can enjoy authentic varieties, including Hong Shui Oolong Tea, Mao Jian Green Tea, and Big Red Robe Oolong Tea.
Whether you’re lounging on your couch, working from home, running errands, or grabbing brunch with your friends, you need comfortable — yet stylish — wear to take from you from point A to point B. Give yourself the gift of buttery-soft joggers from SY. It’s made out of American-sourced fabric and recycled polyester (28 plastic bottles make one pair of pants!) — and can make sense for nearly all occasions.
Naturepedic Organic 2-in-1 Adjustable Latex Pillow
Alright hear us out: a pillow might not seem like a luxurious gift to give yourself for Valentine’s Day, but good sleep is priceless. And probably, it’s been a while since you’ve given your bed essentials a second glance. This customizable design allows you to choose the level of firmness you prefer, and the unique shape supports both your head and neck. If you often wake up with aches and pains, this pillow will have you finally feeling refreshed in the a.m. Trust us: You deserve (and need) it!
Rise Gardens Personal Garden and Starter Kit
If one of your goals is to improve your not-so-green thumb finally, this WiFi-enabled personal garden will give you the boost of confidence you need. It’s super-compact, so it makes sense for even the smallest of countertops, and it allows you to grow up to 12 plants at once. What can you sprout? Everything from kale and arugula to herbs and more than 60 different seeds to choose from. Plus, it’s pretty and modern, too.
Sunday Riley Win-Win Good Genes Duo
Radiant skin is happy skin. That’s the beauty of this Good Genes kit. Featuring two best sellers that are guaranteed to exfoliate the dull surface of the skin to unveil an instant glow, this duo will leave you good to glow.
Jack Wolfskin Women's Insulated Jacket
For those chilly days when you want to enjoy the great outdoors and be stylish and comfortable, gift yourself this lightly insulated jacket. It’s breathable and stretchy, keeping you toasty while also looking dressed to impress. For Valentine’s Day, having the right gear to take you wherever your wanderlust roams is essential.
Dooeys Blush/Cinnamon House Loafers
Not-so-fun fact: even when you’re indoors, your feet need support. Walking barefoot day-in and day-out can be problematic for your arches and even your feet. Rather than strapping on boots, though, these upgraded, modern house shoes are ideal. Not only are they cute, but they’re also made from plant-based and recycled materials, including sugarcane soles and apple leather.
Senna Case Coulter Oversized Sweatshirt For Mom and Baby
Once you become a mom, a part of you always lives outside of your body. There’s nothing quite as extraordinary as the love you have for your child, and sometimes, you want to celebrate it. As a V-day gift to give to yourself — and your little one, too — consider this matching Mini + Me oversized sweatshirt set. Cozy for you and your baby, trust us; this is about as Instagrammable as it gets.
If you’re the main chef in your household, having a night off from chopping, dicing, baking, and sauteing is definitely welcomed. If you don’t want to sacrifice quality in your meals, though, consider treating yourself to a few CookUnity meals, the first direct chef-to-consumer meal subscription platform. You’ll get to sample the delights of iconic culinary masters like Esther Choi, Einat Adomy, Dan Kluger, and more.
Bravissimo Valentina Bra
Think about the moments when you feel your sexiest. Maybe after a long shower. When you kill it at a presentation. When you’re walking around town, feeling the sunshine and energized for the day? Maybe at home, after a week of great workouts, and you’re feeling strong. Whether you’re in a relationship or not, celebrating your body is always an important measure of self-love. This holiday, consider gifting yourself this lingerie set that’s size-inclusive (up to 40L!) for all chest sizes and shapes.
We all have laps around the sun that are better than others. And if the last year has been a struggle for you to find silver linings, Valentine’s Day could feel like yet another hurdle to overcome. Give yourself the gift of a mental health boost with this subscription box founded by a therapist. It includes a happiness activity to be practiced throughout the month, plus up to eight full-sized wellness items. Think: aromatherapy, body and skincare products, and more.
