A little holiday called Valentine’s Day is coming up in about ten days. I know, I know, it’s a Hallmark holiday, it’s a cliche, we should show our love every day, yada yada yada. I get it. But look, I’m a gift person. I like getting gifts, and I like giving gifts. Last year, Valentine’s Day fell right after the second Snowpocalypse in Atlanta, and I apologized to Andy that my gift to him was hung up somewhere and might not be delivered on time. He responded, “Oh, you got me a gift?!” Yes, honey, I did, because gifts are what I do!

If gifts are not your love language, then look no further! I have some out-of-the-box suggestions for you, and you still have plenty of time.
