It’s been scientifically proven that being single lowers our tolerance for other people’s romantic relationships. Ok, maybe we made up the science part, but it’s still a fact that spending Valentine’s Day by yourself can stir up some negative feelings.
Does it have to be this way? We don’t think so. Valentine’s Day isn’t just about romance; it’s about love. You don’t have to be in a couple to appreciate that! There are plenty of non-romantic relationships in your life worth celebrating on February 14th. You could let your single friends know you care with a thoughtful card or gift, or you could even focus on self-love for the day!
So, what do you say? Are you ready to celebrate a singles-friendly Valentine’s Day jam-packed with self-care and platonic affection? We hope so, because we’ve rounded up some sweet and indulgent gifts you can send to your besties or keep for yourself!
If you missed our last blog post, go ahead and check it out here. All done? Great! Keep reading to discover the best non-romantic Valentine’s Day gifts to treat the people you love!
