Forget relationships this Valentine’s Day: Self-love is set to be the order of the day


BLOOM Gin is predicting this February 14th will be the nation’s most ‘self-loving’ Valentine’s Day yet, and is calling for women everywhere to embrace the trend, and take some quality time out for themselves.

Having analysed internet search data, BLOOM Gin discovered yearly interest in ‘self-love’ (defined as an appreciation of one's own worth or virtue), peaks every Valentine’s Day, increasing a staggering 360% since 2017.

That means the famous day of love in 2022 is on track to be the most popular day EVER for self-loving – and why not, after two years of lock-down Valentine’s Days? 

However, despite this, it appears women STILL aren’t making enough time for themselves. BLOOM Gin questioned 1,000 women to discover whether ‘self-love’ was a conscious part of their lives.  

Despite the overwhelming majority (94%) recognising it is important to show themselves some self-love (defined as an appreciation of one's own worth or virtue), less than half (46%) actively put aside time to do this*, with 11% making no time for themselves at all, creating a self-love ‘gap’. 

Valentine’s Day is the perfect occasion to celebrate self-love – especially given the benefits a little bit of personal TLC can bring with 62% of women who feel more empowered after setting aside time for themselves. 

BLOOM Gin is urging women up and down the country to shake off the usual traditions and choose to celebrate self-love this Valentine’s Day. After all, why should couples have all the fun????? 

BLOOM Gin’s Elaine Maher comments: “They say you have to love yourself first to find love and whether that’s true or not, at BLOOM Gin we believe self-love is just as important and worthy of celebration as romantic love. And what better time to do it than this Valentine’s Day?” 

To help women everywhere on their self-love journey, BLOOM Gin has collaborated with quality sex toy company, So Divine, to create the ultimate self-love gift box – be it for yourself, your friend, your sister, hell, even your mum if you’re so inclined.   

The limited-edition gift-box (RRP £49.99), which contains a bottle of BLOOM Gin, a scented candle and a sex toy from So Divine, is the ultimate gift of pleasure and relaxation.  

BLOOM Gin was born from Master Distiller Joanne Moore’s vision to create a lighter gin that could be enjoyed by everyone. Working with only natural ingredients, Joanne created the deliciously light BLOOM London Dry Gin, which has since evolved into a full range of Fruit and Floral Fusions, including BLOOM Passion Fruit & Vanilla Blossom Gin, BLOOM Raspberry & Rose Gin, BLOOM Jasmine & Rose Gin and a collection of ready to serve pre-mixed drinks. 

From its delicious gin to its beautiful bottle, BLOOM Gin epitomises style, substance and sass and the brand is on a mission to encourage people the world over to #LiveFullBloom – because after all, life’s too short not too! For more, visit

With this collaboration, BLOOM Gin and So Divine recognise that everyone does in fact have someone to love, whether that is on Valentine’s Day, or any day – yourself. When we love ourselves and experience joy, pleasure and love in all its guises, that is when we truly bloom. Join the self love club today.
