Valentine’s Gift Guide: Self Love Edition
Valentine’s Day isn’t just about romantic love – it’s about self-love! Giving yourself the care and attention you know you deserve is one of the best ways to show yourself some love and appreciation. When you ensure that you are well cared for and happy, you become the best version of yourself.
Here are just a few of the products I recommend treating yourself to this Valentine’s Day:
Banyan Botanicals is a great brand that is focused on helping people achieve their health and wellness goals. I love using their mint Daily Swish and their Tongue Cleaner – it’s the little things that make all the difference when it comes to our health. The Daily Swish is an oil pull that you gently swish between your teeth, removing plaque and whitening your smile. Bayan Botanicals infuse Ayurvedic herbs that help support a healthy mouth. Their Tongue Cleaner is a game-changer when it comes to oral health. It’s truly important to take care of our dental hygiene and keep our smiles shining bright!
There’s nothing better than getting a beautiful floral arrangement for Valentine’s day – who said you can’t get it for yourself? The thing I love most about Aquaroassa Farms is that it helps empower women. The farms are all Rainforest Certified and the women are at the center stage of the selection process of our Premium flowers. All of their roses and foliage are hand-picked. They also give display tips and help you pick the perfect bouquet for yourself. Flowers make the best gifts and supporting a woman-owned business makes it worth every penny.
There’s not much I love more than a good yoga session. No matter what my mood is, I know that I can find peace and serenity on my yoga mat. Or, I can find a fun time and giggle with my boys when they decide to join me.
If you’re looking for something to up your yoga routine, or you’re just looking for an exciting change, grab yourself a new yoga mat. There are so many different brands and styles out there, there’s something for everyone. I’ve had the same favorite for years – check out this blog if you need some inspiration.
If you’re not really in the market for a new yoga mat, consider treating yourself to some new yoga or athleisure wear. Putting on a brand new outfit to hit the mat with, can totally change your mindset. There’s just something about wearing new clothes that makes us feel great. Whenever I’m shopping for new yoga wear I always opt for Peleton Apparel or Terez. Both brands make clothing that I love the look of and feel comfortable in, no matter what the workout is! Treating yourself to a new outfit is a great way to show yourself some comfy appreciation.
If I’m going to treat myself to chocolate, I love going for something that tastes great, is good for me, and is giving back to the global community. Endanger Species has so a huge variety of chocolate bars – and three that are dedicated to Valentine’s Day! Made with oat milk, I don’t have to worry about these bars impacting my stomach and I can share them with my kids without worry. I also love supporting a brand that makes it a point to give back so openly. If you’re gifting yourself chocolate this year, Endanger Species Chocolate is definitely a brand I recommend.
Any of these products would be an amazing Valentine’s gift to yourself this year. Remind yourself just how much you love yourself. You deserve this, you deserve to be happy, you deserve to splurge on yourself!
