Regardless of Relationship Status, Valentine's Day is Pretty Great.

Okay, I'm not talking the Hallmark version of Valentine's Day. But every now and then, it's great to be reminded to tell people how much you care about them — or how happy you are that they’re part of your life. 

It can be a spouse, boyfriend or girlfriend, sure. But let's not forget your favorite family members or your chosen family (i.e., friends). 

Don't have a date? Feel lucky. Valentine’s dates can be like New Year's Eve — filled with pressure and expectation, while costing three times the amount. 

I think a glass of wine with friends, celebrating friendship sounds fantastic. Or, call me crazy, but so does a night in with a Netflix subscription and no one to hog the remote (hey, the 14th does fall on a Tuesday this year).

Whatever your situation, I hope you focus on gratitude and love — for all the special people you surround yourself with. Because if there's one thing the world needs more of right now, it's definitely love.

And ps: If a drink with your bestie or a kind text to your favorite partner-in-crime doesn’t cut it, check out our V-day bag. 

Much love,
Maria
