For me, Valentine’s Day means celebrating all forms of love. I celebrate my family, my friendships, my staff, even my pets (who are a part of my family really).
And for those in my life who think they hate Valentine’s day, I try to pull them out of those feelings and make it special.
Gone are the days that say Valentine’s day needs to be shared romantically.
First, I spend valentine’s Day with a group of my favorite gal friends doing an amazing Galentine’s Day. This year it will be at HOBNOB in Atlantic Station (Atlanta, Georgia). We will have a nice dinner with champagne flights and chocolate-covered strawberries. We are taking a Lyft so that we can enjoy ourselves without the worry of driving (or parking for that matter).
I also like to make it special for others in my life through gifts that I put thought into, but can easily be ordered online.
1. Organic Aromas: Nebulizing Diffuser For Essential Oil Aromatherapy
This is perfect for someone who doesn’t want anything remotely signifying Valentine’s Day but you want to show your love.
Nebulizing Diffusers® work without the need to heat up the oils and without the need to add water to the diffuser. Also, no heat is required so the chemical structure of the essential oil is not altered. In addition, because the diffuser uses glass the essential oil never comes into contact with plastic. The particles of essential oil reach you in their natural state and provide you with all of their original therapeutic benefits.
