Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

Valentine’s Day is about 2 weeks away so it’s time to start thinking about gifts for your loved ones!  While last year the focus was on lingerie, this year I thought it would be fun to try to highlight gifts that could be given among friends, siblings, mother/daughter, etc.  Better yet, all items shown are under $50!
