40 Valentine’s Day Gifts To Send Yourself That Are All Under $30

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate love than by giving back to yourself? While it’s great to show love to others, it’s also important to show yourself some love. V-Day isn’t just reserved for celebrating romantic partners. You can also celebrate the day of love with your friends, family, or just at home doing some self-care. 

You don’t have to spend V-Day alone if you’re choosing to spend this holiday celebrating self-love. Practicing self-love can also be done with friends and family. This year, I’m spending this holiday with my closest friends for a Galentine’s Day brunch as a way to give back to myself. 

Surely gift-giving is not the only way to express love, but it may be easier for those who may find it hard to find the right words to express it. Everyone has a different love language. If your love language is gift-giving, then this is the right list for you.

V-Day is the perfect opportunity to take time to reflect on how you like to appreciate yourself and treat yourself to things you haven’t got around to getting! Here are 40 Valentine’s Day gift ideas you can send to yourself this year.
