Love is the only gold.- Alfred Lord Tennyson
I absolutely love celebrating Valentine’s Day. Growing up, my mom made it such a special holiday and always had a little gift waiting for me on my place mat in the morning. After the dreariness of January, it was always fun to have something to look forward too. Fast forward a few years and I still love this holiday as much as I did then. And one of my favorite things about it is giving something special to someone that I love.
As a single girl, I firmly believe that Valentine’s Day is still something to celebrate and is the perfect opportunity to get your sister, best friend or mom something that she wouldn’t normally buy for herself. I’ve rounded up a few chic gift ideas that I’ll hope you’ll love. Here’s to celebrating all the strong women in your life!
