The Gift for Yourself

Valentine’s Day is truly what you make of it, meaning you certainly don’t need a significant other to celebrate this holiday of love. Love yourself! If you’re anything like me, you always have your eye on something in the Goop store and deeply value a good night’s sleep. So treat yourself to a new pair of silk pajamas — because why not?
