18 Valentine's Day Gifts To Get YOURSELF, Because This Year You Deserve It All

Cupid's favorite day is almost here, the day when we're all supposed to shower our loved ones with chalky candy hearts, boxes of gamble chocolates, and other (generally) meaningless Valentine's Day gifts. Look, I'm not saying Valentine's Day is a day we should boycott. I'm just saying maybe the gifts we give should celebrate many different kinds of love. This holiday shouldn't be specifically about having a significant other to share it with. We should honor the love we have for our friends, family, and most importantly, ourselves. Here are all the gifts you should get yourself. Because... seriously, why not?!
