A Box of V-Day Love For Your Bestie, Courtesy of Packed Party

Last year on Valentine’s Day, I watched Gossip Girl while eating Italian food and drinking red wine in bed with one of my favorite girlfriends. It was my favorite Valentine’s Day to date, and it included everything I loved: said bestie, booze, gluttony in a judgment-free zone, and Chuck Bass. It was neither here nor there whether or not a man was in the picture, but, I’m pretty sure, every spoken-for lady in my life was touched with a smidgen of envy when I Instagrammed our full-throttle hedonism. (Yeah, enjoy your steak dinner in a tight dress and heels–I’m going to polish off another tortellini in my pjs.)

But I think tokens of affection for the pillars of support in our lives are the best part of the holiday.

Cue: Packed Party.
