Valentine's Day gift ideas
Love, Self

Celebrate yourself instead.

Whether you are single, in a relationship, divorced, or are going through a break up, Valentine’s Day is about feeling loved. But if you don't currently feel like you have love in your life, this can be a hard day for you.

That's why taking a look at the best Valentine's Day gift ideas for people who hate this Hallmark holiday is sure to cheer you up.

"When it comes to doing something special for someone who is anti-Valentine’s Day, offer them something meaningful. Encourage them to practice self-love by treating them to a yoga class, meditation class, massage," suggests Rori Sassoon, founding partner of Platinum Poire, a VIP elite relationship service.

When all else fails, buy them champagne and a box of chocolates! Because if someone you love hates Valentine's Day, they should spend it feeling good about themselves in some way.
