28 last-minute gifts to buy for yourself this Valentine’s Day

Posted by for Life

Valentine’s Day isn’t about showcasing your love for someone else – it’s about celebrating love in all its glory, and most importantly showing yourself some love. 

Valentine’s Day is almost impossible to navigate whether you are coupled up or riding it out solo. What’s the perfect present if you’re in the early stages of dating? What do you get your partner who has everything? How much love is too much love to show someone else? The endless considerations are exhausting. Which is why we are removing them, and refocusing this day of love back onto ourselves. (Plus, we are much easier to buy for). 

Love has come to mean so much more than a cheesy card and some wilted red roses from your local supermarket. Lockdown and Covid-19 have realigned what love represents and made an argument that self-love, in a time when we have needed it most, is one of the most important facets of love.

Whether you indulge in your favourite film, that bottle of wine you’ve been saving for a special occasion or a FaceTime with your best friends, make sure Valentine’s Day is all about you.

In case you need a reminder of that, we’ve rounded up the most special buys to treat yourself to this Valentine’s Day because no one deserves it more than you do.
