Every year I post a wish list of things I want to buy for myself on Valentine’s Day. I’m not big on the holiday but love promoting self love (we all need this tee shirt) and think it’s an important practice for women (especially moms!) who often take care of everyone else in our lives before ourselves… Myself included BTW.
Obviously self love or treating yourself doesn’t have to mean going out and buying yourself something. It can mean a hot bubble bath with a cup of tea (or glass of wine), giving yourself a manicure or face mask, or even just watching The Crown for hours in bed without feeling guilty about it.
But sometimes it feels good to treat yourself to something new, and it doesn’t have to cost a lot. This $5 lip mask will make you feel glam, and a small “to me from me love me” gift a this cute mug (for $16) or a velvet hair bow (I wear mine constantly) is a nice way to say thank you for being you. I also love this ginger jar candle in pink ($25). I have it in blue and it’s one of my favorite hostess gifts to give.
I obviously forgot to include my gift to myself in this collage because #hotmess but I’m so excited for my new bag to arrive! You guys know about my love for Cuyana, but all of my totes are larger and I wanted a smaller everyday bag that can be worn for evening events too. I saw this one on a friend of a friend recently and was waiting for a good excuse to buy it. Valentine’s Day seemed like the perfect one to me!
If you want to spend a little more or if someone else wants a gift idea for you, you can’t go wrong with perfume. I’m currently wearing this one but Coco Mademoiselle is a classic and the pretty pink bottle never hurt anyone either. I realize it’s pretty basic but Diptyque comes out with a new rose scent every February in a limited edition bottle and it always smells amazing. I love the idea of having your partner/spouse buy that instead of roses because it lasts a lot longer!
