Let’s be honest. Valentine’s Day is anxiety-inducing, regardless of your status — a long-term relationship, fresh from a breakup, in a shitty situationship, or single. It’s two weeks of in-your-face marketing and expectations that force several spirals and therapy appointments. However, the Hallmark holiday is pretty hard to avoid altogether, so as a single girlie, I’ve decided to make it a day about self-love rather than romantic love, and buy myself a Valentine’s Day gift
Yep, this year, I’m going to take a page from Queen Miley’s book and buy myself flowers, and take myself dancing bc we’re in the hot girl era where we spend all of our time, energy, effort and money on ourselves.
If you’d like to join me, I’ve rounded up 14 of the best Valentine’s Day gift ideas for yourself since you’re not spending it on some ~6ft~, bare minimum, man.
Valentine’s Day gifts for yourself
Emma Cloud Hybrid Pillow
Give yourself the gift of a damn good night’s sleep with a bougie pillow. Emma Sleep has a dreamy selection of choices for your weary noggin. Our pick is the Cloud Hybrid Pillow because it combines the lightness of the microfibre pocket and the support of the memory foam core.
Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer (Ceramic Pop)
If you’ve been waiting for the perfect excuse to splurge on the cult-famous Dyson Supersonic, this is it.
My ilo Egg Vibrator
Mejuri Tube Medium Hoops
Maybe this is just me adding another pair of earrings to my wish list, but these Mejuri hoops give the illusion of double piercings without the pain — and I’m obsessed with them.
Sheet Society Even Linen Quilt Cover Set
Treat yourself to some fresh, buttery soft sheets this Valentine’s Day. Sheet Society’s Eden Cotton Butter Quilt Cover Set is made from 100% long-staple cotton, making them both sustainable and breathable.
Give yourself the gift of space this Valentine’s Day. Sneaking away for a little solo getaway is never a bad idea. Plus, with all the options on Airbnb, you’re bound to find somewhere epic to escape to – like this little off-the-grid cabin in SA. How cute is it?!
Lack of Color Inca Bucket Hat
If you’re yet to get a little bucket hat, now is the time, my friends. The one from Lack of Color is begging to be worn on a hot, sunny beach while you eat ice cream from a Mr Whippy van.
Crosley Cruiser Bluetooth Portable Turntable
Set yourself up with some sweet, sweet sounds this V-Day with the Crosley Cruiser Turntable. You can choose between playing classic vinyl or using Bluetooth to connect to your favourite playlist.
The Last of Us Part II Remastered (PS5)
Need an excuse to buy yourself a new video game? Valentine’s Day might as well be one! Bonus points if you’ve yet to play this great game.
Apple AirPods Max
If you’ve been eyeing a pair of Apple’s cult-famous AirPod Max headphones, now is the time to spoil yourself.
Lonvitalite Platinum Contour Roller
Obsessed with skincare? We’ve got the perfect ‘to me, from me’ gift this Valentine’s Day. The Lonvitalite Platinum Contour Roller aids with sculpting and contouring facial muscles while providing a relaxing at-home treatment for your face.
Billabong x King Stingray Gapirri Power T-Shirt
The Billabong x King Stingray is the latest surf collab we’re chasing pieces from. The Aussie “Yolngu Surf Rock” group has designed a range of sick tees, shorts, hats, hoodies and more.
FLWR BOY Skateboard Deck
A skateboard but make it art. Australian-based artist Lisa Vuong went viral on TikTok for her epic skateboard art inspired by a love for music. She’s even painted decks for musicians promoting their latest releases and The Hella Mega Tour featuring Green Day, Fall Out Boy and Weezer. How good?!
Ocean & Earth Wax Fridge
Bit of a niche gift, but if you’re someone who surfs (or giving a gift to someone who does), this is a bloody brilliant idea. It’s a little wax fridge to keep your board wax from melting in your car over the summer months. Genius!
