15 Valentine's Day Gifts We Are (Not So Secretly) Keeping For Ourselves

Have romantic dinner plans with the S.O. for February 14? Maybe you've even picked out some sweet and sparkly treats to shower them with, too. But, if you happen to be flying solo, then join us on our quest to turn Valentine's Day 2018 into the biggest of self-care bangers. How? By showering our damn selves with love (read: gifts). No significant other needed.

V-Day can still be all about romance, pink hearts, flowers, chocolates, and all that mushy-gushy stuff — with or without a partner. Because at the end of the day, our best partner in life is looking at us in the mirror every morning. Right?! Ahead we've rounded up the best and most badass in gourmet goodies and gifts to buy and indulge in. These gifts are so good, we wouldn't fork them over to a Valentine even if we had one. Scroll forth to stock up on everything from pints of red velvet cookie dough to rose-scented candles, essential oil diffusers, specialty wine subscriptions, rosé vodka, and much more. Let's band together to make the love-y-doveyiest day of the year all about some serious self-love in 2018.
