We've partnered with GODIVA to help you treat yourself to a wonderful Valentine's Day, complete with all the trimmings.
Valentine's Day might be the ultimate treat-yourself moment. After all, it's the one day a year that's all about love — and that includes self-love.
Whether you're flying solo or have a special someone in your life, Valentine's Day is practically made for self-care. Even the typical trappings of the holiday — from long-stemmed roses to decadent desserts — work just as well as gifts for yourself as they do for someone else. No matter how you're spending Feb. 14 this year, make sure that these five iconic hallmarks of Valentine's Day are part of your celebration.
You don't need to be dating someone to have an excuse to buy flowers. Take Valentine's Day as the perfect opportunity to spoil yourself with a stunning bouquet of fresh blooms or a new plant baby. Even the smallest addition can really brighten up your home.

Dark chocolate lovers might want to go for the GODIVA Masterpieces Gift Box of Dark Chocolate Ganache Hearts, while fans of the iconic GODIVA dipped strawberries will love the Godiva Masterpieces Bag of Milk Chocolate Strawberry Hearts.

Spa-Inspired Beauty Treatments
There's a reason couples spa treatments are such a popular anniversary and honeymoon activity — self-care is sexy! Whether you're hanging with friends or going on a romantic date on Feb. 14, leave some time to indulge in a relaxing beauty treatment by yourself. Try out that new face mask you've been saving, or draw yourself a steaming hot bubble bath. You might want to light some candles, dim the lights, and put on a calming playlist for even more spa vibes.

The romance genre — from steamy novels to silly rom-coms — gets a bad rap. Sure, it can sometimes be a little corny, but you don't have to feel ashamed of your guilty pleasures. Queue up your favorite romantic drama or comedy, cuddle up on the couch (weighted blanket optional, but very much encouraged), and get ready for the ultimate Valentine's-themed movie night.
GODIVA Masterpieces Dark Chocolate Ganache Hearts make the ideal movie snack.

Whatever your relationship status, make time to write a few sweet notes to the most important people in your life — whether that means your significant other, your best friend, your roommate, or even your mom. Telling your favorite people just how much they mean to you feels so good. You can even slip an individually wrapped piece of
GODIVA Masterpieces chocolate into the card for a sweet surprise!
