Over the years Valentine’s Day has evolved past simply being a celebration for couples. Valentine’s Day is now an opportunity to express your love to anyone you care about, whether it’s sending a card to your best friend or hosting a Galentine’s brunch. This year, we don’t have as many ways to celebrate with our loved ones as we stay safe and social distance, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still show our affections. Sending someone a note or a special gift just to lift their spirits can be a great token of love and can be the perfect way to celebrate the people in your life this Valentine’s Day. Whether you live near to your friends or states away, sending a little gift someone’s way can let them know how you feel about them and give them a boost of joy that’s needed now more than ever.
Here are 11 gifts you can send your Valentine, Galentine or Palentine to show them a little extra love this weekend.
