Valentine’s Day is about love. And we all know that love comes in many different forms.
We love our partners (if you have one, I don’t) but we also love our kids, our friends, our families, our pets and that huge bar of chocolate in the fridge … but most importantly we love ourselves.
And if you don’t, it’s about time you started!
So if you are lacking on the partner front, don’t let that stop you celebrating Valentine’s Day. Instead, shower yourself with love (and a little gift) to remind yourself how amazing you are.
Get inspiration and ideas from my list of Valentine’s Day gifts to get for yourself.
My favourite gift on this list of Valentines gifts to get yourself: breakfast in bed! It’s nice to wake up on Valentine’s Day to a tray of goodies prepared by someone else. But as a single mum, you can still have your romantic breakfast spread by giving yourself a foldable bed tray.
