Nothing screams I love you more than a handwritten letter. Why not write yourself something sweet. Either you can write yourself a letter filled with positive affirmations or positive things that you want to manifest into your life.

Date Night

With a lot of restaurants being closed, bring the restaurant to your home. This is the perfect time to do some experimenting in the kitchen and cook yourself that meal that you were always dying to try, or you can order your favorite take out and do some arts and crafts.

I hope this list gave you suggestions on gifts that you should give yourself post Valentine’s Day. And remember, it’s okay to be alone on Valentine’s Day. Valentine’s Day isn’t just about romantic love, it’s about platonic love, familial love, and self-love too. Also, let your loved ones and yourself know that you cherish them all days of the year and not just on this holiday.
