A Valentine's Day gift for you

Not just a day for couples to celebrate, this Valentine's Day practice a little self-love.

February 14th can be a drag if you're single. Or if you're not particularly romantic. Or if you're in a new relationship, or don't like holidays that focus on the pressure of big gestures. Basically, Valentine's Day can be a stressful, anxiety-enducing mess of a day. But it doesn't have to be—even if you subscribe to the above beliefs.

We're all about the idea of practicing self-love this Valentine's Day. Taking time to be thoughtful and considerate is what the day is all about—so why not give yourself a little break by taking the time to treat yourself (or if you're a Parks and Recreation fan—"treat yo'self!").

Whether that means picking up something shiny and expensive (we won't judge), need a little time for yourself (you deserve it), or want to indulge in great food and wine (everything in moderation is our motto) we're rounded up a few things you should gift yourself this Valentine's Day—lovers be damned.
