This Valentine’s Day, it really shouldn’t matter if you’re with someone or not. I’ve spent many a V-day wallowing in singledom watching Bridget Jones Diary and shoving Twix bars into my pie hole. (I highly recommend this box set, from experience.) Others I’ve spent painting the town red with my girls.

Now that I’m married, I plan to spend it the way my husband and I always have since we’ve been together: dinner at one of the most quaint, unassuming, romantic restaurants in town (this place). We do it every year–we love it for the pianist who takes song requests (we often get them to play our song) and the enormous oak tree that is right in the middle of the 130 year old house that houses the restaurant.

But whatever your plans, whatever your status–make sure you treat yourself, because you can’t always guarantee that someone else will. Want to make yourself feel even better? Treat someone else who is least going to expect it (how about your newly-single girlfriend?). There’s still time to get some things for Valentine’s Day, and why not get something a little less cliché than red roses? I personally own the Massi Corragio pendant in Rose and these earrings in gold and haven’t taken them off in 12 days.

    The dinner with your husband sound absolutely magical. I love the thought of treating someone unassuming, it makes it a little bit more special.

    I picked up a wonderful heart-shaped necklace very similar to the one shown at my Versona store for only $7.00.  Fabulous similarity to that more expensive one.

    These little gifts are lovely. I will be watching chick flicks alone and eating Pizza with copious amounts of wine on VDay this year. My husband is going to be on a business trip- he had better bring me back something pretty!

    Loving the heart shaped umbrella!! I’ll be visiting my boyfriend who lives out of town for V-day. Luckily it’s only a 3 hour drive 🙂 It sounds like you and your husband have a great tradition!

    I agree – treat yourself on Valentine’s Day! Even when I was single, I loved it because the day is an excuse to indulge in all things red and pink while telling friends and family how much you love them.
    These gifts are great – especially love that heart umbrella! xox

    The heart umbrella is to amazing! I think its a fabulous idea to treat an un-expecting someone to something nice on v-day. I did that on a single valentines day a few years back. It not only made my day less dreary, but it brightened up someone elses. 🙂
