Choosing a Valentine’s gift for your loved one can go one of two ways – it’s easy and awesome, or it’s not. For some, it’s fun to go gift shopping, and for others, it’s stressful and challenging. 

Ultimately, it’s important to remember that the heart and thoughtfulness behind a gift matters more than cost or size. This year take a few moments to ponder the things that make your loved one radiate happiness and joy.
