14 of the BEST Valentine’s Day Gifts

I love this holiday!!!!!  Partly because there is pink and candy and flowers but mostly because it falls on my favorite number: 14 –and the love thing, don’t forget the love thing!!

I have compiled a list of the 14 BEST Valentine’s Day Gifts!  Why 14, because, as I said–favorite number!

So, after a quick inquiry over on snapchat and recalling the cool gifts I’ve gotten in the past or would like to receive, I have created a bullet point list for you to start with and act on.  Please leave a comment if you have other favorites to share with the world, you never know who is reading and might want to give you a Valentine!
