February 14th is a day to ditch those oversized knickers, have some fun and feel the feels! Whilst Valentine’s Day can sometimes feel a bit commercial and overhyped, at EVOHE we like to think of it as a day to nurture our relationships (with self and others) and to connect with our hearts and deepest desires.
On Valentine’s Day some of us will be nursing a broken heart – a wound that may be fresh and raw or older and lingering. That can make this day really challenging and you may find that you need to spend some time healing and nurturing your heart and soul.
Whether you’re dating, married, single or nursing a broken heart, our EVOHE Valentine’s ninjas have come up with gift ideas, games and self-care practices to help you have a perfect day.
SELF-LOVE & SELF-NURTURING IDEAS
“Our soul is like a soft and gentle flower, it needs to be nurtured, cared for and tended to, with sufficient sunlight, fresh air and freedom to bloom into its most precious and beautiful form. This, my friend, is self-love” – Miya Yamanouchi
♥ Pleasure Time – Treat yourself to a special toy and have some V-Day fun! If you’re new to self-pleasure toys, you can take this quick quiz to find your perfect one!
