Best Ideas and Gifts (Him, Her, Kids!) to Celebrate Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is just days away. Bless you, if you are prepared and way ahead of the game. For the rest of us, it might be tempting to just ignore the day altogether and assume our spouses, kids, grandkids, friends, family, and co-workers, will think we forgot and give us a pass. I do not recommend that, however! The way I see it, we still have time, and that means options.
