We’ve lived through a lot of firsts this year, but a quarantine on Valentine’s Day is unprecedented. Never before have we had to experience the Day of Love under such strict rules, but to that I say embrace the changes for a bit. When life gives you lemons, get to making some lemonade, and seeing as how V-Day is on a Sunday this year, I plan to enjoy the day as much as I can indoors.
To me, that means the three S’s, which includes lots of self-care, streaming, and snacks. You can finally stream that show you’ve meant to watch and indulge in all your favorite snacks. And the cherry on top of your VD sundae is to perform all kinds of self-care like a beauty routine, reading a book, cooking your favorite meal, or shopping.
Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to go big or go home for yourself! I obviously will still buy gifts for loved ones (my mom is definitely getting The Love Fern), but this V-Day, I think it’s okay to be a little bit selfish. That same love you’ve been giving everyone else throughout this entire pandemic, send a little bit of it your own way. I promise you won’t regret it, and the “shoppers high” you get due to the dopamine release when making your much-deserved purchase is well worth it.
Below, we’ve put together fourteen items created or designed by single moms for you to peruse on your shopping journey. If you want to spoil yourself, but not too much, check out our other gift guide with all items $20 and under.
