Valentine’s Day Sweet Gift Picks
I’m excited to share that the Explore*Handmade Etsy Valentine’s Day Page is now available with tons of great gift ideas. Today, I’ve showcased a few of my favorites. Although gift giving is a lovely part of this holiday, I try to make an effort to give not only material items but also love to others. This can include giving a friend a call who you haven’t talked to in awhile and may be going through a hard time, or sending a grandparent a card reminding them how much you love them.
I also try to remember to be there for my girlfriends who are single around this time of year. I remember all too well only a few years ago when I was single on Valentine’s Day in my late 20s. Although my life was full of amazing things—job, health, hobbies and more—there was a small part of me that felt a bit lonelier on this day (as much as I didn’t want to). I can’t tell you how much my friendships meant to me during this time. Luckily, I had amazing girlfriends who didn’t go on about me meeting someone when I least expected it. Instead, they reminded me that love is all around us—in our friendships and with ourselves and really, that is what this holiday is all about.
