I love Valentine’s Day — mainly because I love any excuse to make a day extra-special and themed, and these winter months tend to drag on after the density of holidays in the fall/early winter. It’s a perfect excuse to deck the halls in the dead of February. Below, a few of my favorite finds, recognizing that we’re still three weeks away from the holiday, but it’s easy to lose track of time and then find yourself wandering the seasonal aisle at CVS contemplating a lot of random impulse buys you don’t need. (Plus, I’m an anticipator.)
