A special gift guide to celebrate the one you love — not just today but every day.
While I’m not a huge fan of the commercialism and pressure of Valentine’s Day I do love celebrating love — and there’s no reason that you can’t surprise your Valentine with sweet treats all month long. From beautiful items for breakfast in bed and decorative declarations of love, to alternative bouquets and of course chocolate, a bit of glitter and outside the box thinking goes a long way any day of the year.
