Not in the mood for Valentine’s Day this year? We get it - in times like these, sparking romance is the last thing on our minds. But think of this day as a way to tell the most important person in your life, Y-O-U, how much you care. Draw yourself a bath, cook your favorite meal, listen to your favorite record - whatever reminds you how much you love you. For more self-love ideas, we tapped some of our favorite self-care gurus to see how they practice self-care and what they’ll be gifting themselves this V-Day.
Diamond, Digital Creator
“To me, self care is about taking some time to disconnect from the world to check in on my mental health. I love to pray and take long walks, and of course, treat myself. I would love to gift myself a new pair of fuzzy slippers, like Lime Frankie Slipper, a high-quality face mask, and some things I can wear in Spring, like the Magenta Maude Cardigan.”
Carla, Internet Furniture
“Self-care means slowing down to curl up in a cozy sweater, working on a puzzle, and sipping a delicious cocktail. A cute tumbler that encourages me to drink more water would make the perfect gift, along with a stationery set, like the Block Print Stationary, so I can send notes to friends and family.”

Mackii, The Sis List Podcast
“My self-care routine includes dancing to early 2000’s music, reading a book by the pool, and pretending my bathroom’s a spa while I give myself a facial. I’ll be showing myself some love by gifting myself a new pair of sweats, like the Rainbow Spiral Tie Dye Sweatpants, and a pair of fuzzy slippers (my go-to uniform when I’m podcasting.)”
