Sober Love: 7 Sweet Gift Ideas for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is a divisive holiday and I understand why some people hate it. Whether you’re coupled or uncoupled, sober or active, it can stir up uncomfortable emotions around all kinds of relationships — including toxic ones. My most toxic relationship was the one I had with alcohol and sometimes it’s helpful for me to think of it as a manipulative ex. One that I just could not shake and kept going back to even though I knew it was the worst thing for me.

But no more! Now, my top priority is nurturing the relationship I have with myself. When I do that, I’m much better at showing up for others and celebrating the people that I love the most. So in that spirit, here are some fun sober-positive gift ideas for Valentine’s Day sober folks.
