I know not everyone is a fan of the "Hallmark" holiday, but if you think
about it, it's really less about over priced flowers and a fancy dinner out
with one special person, but more about celebrating love in general. The love you have for yourself, your family, your friends, and of course it can be a significant other. Throw in conversation heart candies and a box of chocolates, who can complain?! When I was in elementary school I always loved picking out Valentine's for my classmates and putting the little mailbox on my desk (you know what I'm talking about)! Even walking through CVS right now makes me smile because I think it's so endearing seeing hearts everywhere and so many childhood memories.
Growing up, my father always bought my sister and I a special gift on Valentine's Day. And as I've gotten older, I like to treat myself to something special that reminds me of the love I have surrounding me, and most importantly, a reminder of the love I have for myself. I highly recommend you do the same!
I've put together my top picks on my own personal "treat yo'self" list (and in case anyone wants to buy me something, here you go)! For those of you looking to you buy a friend, relative or s/o a really special and memorable gift at very reasonable prices, scroll down to see my TOP FIVE from Portage & The Jewelry Box.
