Like I said in my Philly Valentine’s Day Gift Guide, I’ve never really gotten worked up over the big V-Day. What I do get worked up about is taking the time to appreciate yourself – your body, your mind, your friends, and your blessings. So this past Valentine’s Day (excuse the 30+ days it took me to get this post up), I celebrated by treating myself. I’m not going to lie, at one point I even thought about presenting myself with my own personalized gift, (Personalisiertes Geschenk) as who doesn’t want socks that have their own face on? At least it would’ve been unique. Unfortunately, I decided not to follow through with this thought and treated myself in other ways instead. Although among all the personalized gifts I came across during my search, the Spotify Glass plaque (or Spotify Verre Plaque if you’re french) did pique my interest for a moment. However, I went for something else, and the result was pretty much a Philly dream day for me, and I hope by sharing, I can encourage all of you to take the time to treat yourselves, too.
I don’t mind Valentine’s Day. I think it’s a nice opportunity and/or reminder to do something special for the ones you love. There are tons of gift guides for sweet, Pinterest-inspired gifts you can get for your BF (I mean, who wouldn’t want to get this?), so I’ve decided to tackle some gift ideas for the under-appreciated on the big V-Day: your BFF, your puppy, and, the most important one, yourself.
In honor of the upcoming holiday, I start off today with things I love having in my life (in order of importance): my family, my friends, a job, and pizza. You know how some people ask you if you’d give up a certain thing for a million dollars? I have thought about this question, just in case I’m ever asked, and my answer is n-o, I would not give up pizza for one million dollars. I have no shame.
When I am in the pizza mood (which is always) & hanging around Rittenhouse, SliCE (1740 Sansom Street) is my go-to. Their Philly locations consistently serve some of the best pizza in Philadelphia, and their monthly specials (like this bacon cheeseburger pizza – hello lady!) are amazing.
So to celebrate the most loved/hated day in the country, my buds over at SliCE want to hook you up. One lucky lil Her Philly reader will win a heart shaped pizza to enjoy on Valentine’s Day with her sweetie (or girlfriends!). Use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter, and remember, if you are not located within SliCE’s delivery radius, you’ll have to scoop it up yourself.
If you don’t win a free pizza from me, you can still order a heart shaped pie from any of SliCE’s three locations on Valentine’s Day – complete with his & her toppings and a chance to win a Sterling Silver Hershey Kiss necklace donated by Sermania Jewelry (1719 East Passyunk Avenue). This giveaway ends at 12am on Thursday, so hurry!
Oh and pizza, if loving you is wrong, I don’t want to be right.
