We can all agree that Valentine’s Day is the worst, right? If you’re single, it reminds just how single you are. If you’re coupled, you probably each have different expectations for the day and will end up arguing in public over a plate of expensive spaghetti. Fun!

Yes, love often sucks, but at least there’s one special person in your life you can always count on: you. Forget about that Tinderoni and buy yourself something special this Valentine’s Day. You’re worth it. 

Here are 14 excellent self-gift ideas to get you going:
