We're a Valentine's Day loving crew over here. It is one of those days that' so cliche it's kind of awesome. While we try to be good partners most days of the week, sometimes we need a planned day of love and kindness. It's hard being an adult, dammit. Valentine's Day doesn't have to be about cliches though. It doesn't have to include serious confessions of love and commitment; though we do condone deep thoughts. It doesn't have to be all hearts, doilies, candlelit dinners and roses. Buck the trend this year, get your sweetie a uniquely silly card and surprise him with a one-of-a-kind gift.
Kate and I put together a nice little guide on the perfect gift for the special dude in your life. Looking for lady-friendly gifts? Check out Talia's guide here.
Make Valentine's more than a Hallmark holiday this year and commit to buying local, hand crafted stationary. All the items below are found on Etsy but can also be found at local gift shops like Paper Source and Patina.
