Valentine’s Gifts – The Alternative Version ♥


I thought I’d do something a little different for this gift ideas list. Whether you’re single or loved up, I think Valentine’s is a great excuse to turn things around a little & treat ourselves to things we should be doing every day of the year, but probably rarely do. Without further ado, here are 5 awesome things to give yourself this Valentine’s!

1.  Compassion 

“Self-compassion is simply giving the same kindness to ourselves that we would give to others. ” – Christopher Germer.

2.  Laughter 

“A day without laughter is a day wasted”  –  Charlie Chaplin

3.  Rest 

“Nourishing yourself in a way that helps you blossom in the direction you want to go is attainable, and you are worth the effort. ” – Deborah Day

4.  Hope 

“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence”  –  Helen Keller.

5.  Forgiveness 

“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong”  –  Mahatma Gandhi.
