Valentine's Day is a great time to show love and appreciation for the people that are important in your live (including yourself). Because the world is always better when we love more.
Valentine's Day is traditionally about the celebration of romantic love. For some of us, it is a super-fun day spent with our partner that we look forward to with glee! For others-- those of us who are not romantically attached, or who don't fit into typical models of intimate relationships-- V-day can feel less inspiring.
At the Tool Shed, we like to think of Valentine's Day as a reminder to show love and appreciation to those closest to us-- that includes self-love/self-care, caring for our close friends and family, and caring for our communities. And yes, that can include showing some special appreciation for our romantic partners, too.
Of course, you don't have to buy a gift to show you care for someone! Quality time spent together is a great gift, on Valentine's Day and every other day of the year.
But if you are looking to get a gift for a loved one, we've got lots of cool stuff and we're happy to help. Check out the list below for some fun and unique gift ideas!
