We’re not out of the woods yet. With social distancing still very much in play, our holidays continue to look like an episodic version of “The Truman Show” - each of us with our own TV screen.
This holiday represents different things to different people. It’s no longer just a heart-shaped box of candy situation. It should be as inclusive and colorful as the societies we live in. Whether you are lucky enough to have your significant other in your Covid bubble or you are quarantined apart, you can still give and get a Valentine’s warm fuzzy this year.

$43 for 9-piece box
