Valentine’s Day Gift Guide: Connection makes us stronger
Valentine’s Day can be triggering for some. And we totally get it.
As a day traditionally centered around romance and romantic love, Valentine’s Day can be tough for people who are not currently in a romantic relationship. That’s why we love the fact that Valentine’s Day continues to evolve in meaning and become more inclusive. For example, Galentine’s Day, celebrated on February 13 and invented by fictional character Leslie Knope on Parks & Rec, is one of our favorite days because it involves showering your besties (or gal pals, as some like to say) with love.
What’s better than telling the people you love how much you love them? Romantic love gets glorified, but all types of love, including self-love, are valid and crucial.
We want to encourage anyone who wants to celebrate love to look at Valentine’s Day through a new lens. If you’re partnered, we 100% recommend doing all the lovey-dovey romantic stuff you want together. But if you’re not partnered, don’t let it stop you from giving love, receiving love, and appreciating love in all its forms.
Building connections is what life is all about. For Valentine’s and Galentine’s Day this year, honor the existing connections in your life and strengthen your bonds with some of our most magical and affirming pieces.
