Celebrate Love! Happy Valentine’s Day | 2.14.14

Don’t give me no crap about hating Valentine’s Day this or Hallmark Holiday that. I don’t want to hear it. Cut that out. Single or attached, male or female, Valentine’s Day is simple: a chance to celebrate love. You don’t have to be in a relationship. You don’t have to buy all sorts of mushy-lovey-dovey junk or shell out big bucks for big blooms. You just need to celebrate the beautiful thing that is LOVE. There is someone in this world that loves you: a spouse, a sibling, a parent, a friend. There is someone in this world that you love: comrade, boo, pet, yourself. Whoever it is, whatever it is, just celebrate it! Love is a beautiful thing and too often it’s taken for granted or allowed to get comfortable. Today is the day to grab it, shake it out, and throw it a party. So just STFU if you’re one of those who thinks you need a boyfriend or a present today. All you need baby, is love.

Buuuut if you do want to grab a little sumthin-sumthin, here’s a few fun ideas (because this is a blog, not just a soapbox).

valentine's day: treat yourself

Why not show ourselves a little love, amirite??

valentine's day: spoil your best gal

Best friend or girlfriend, show your best gal a little love with something sweet or something sparkly!

valentine's day: mad about mom

Mom. auntie, grandmom or godmom, there’s a fierce female in your life who has had your back and loves you so. Throw a little love right back at her!

valentine's day: gifting a gent

And we all know a great guy that could use a little reminder of how we think he’s the bee’s knees!

So skip the presents (or not) and celebrate. Send an email or (gasp!) call someone and wish them a Happy Valentine’s Day. Love is a powerful thing. Celebrate it today!
