It's hard to believe that less than a year ago, COVID was something that yet hadn't up-ended all of our lives. Even harder to believe, that current-day we're still not back to any semblance of normalcy. 

Which is why it's critical to delight in the small things as we wait for mass vaccinations to help us resume normal life. And one of those small things is the celebration of Valentine's Day and the person you love. (Even if you're single — and the person you love is yourself; that's totally acceptable and bad-ass, too.)

While it might not be as big of a blow-out celebration as years past given the circumstances, there can still a 'reason for the season,'  whether you gift your boo with whatever his favorite love language is: words of affirmation, quality time, acts of service, physical touch ... or gifts. 

For those in the latter camp, we've rounded up some goodies he'll definitely love — and hey, if you end up buying them for yourself as an act of self-love, more power to you. We're fans of every type of love relationship over here. 

Happy February!
