Sunday Chronicles: Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

There may be a rumor that I don’t like Valentine’s Day (see here, here, and here.) Let it be said that I am a great fan of love, and all the trappings that come with it, but a little wary of days where we “have to” anything. But, as long as it’s with a free heart, let’s tell each other we love each other and buy some gifts!

Be it for you, or for anyone you love, here are some of my picks for what to give this year for Valentine’s Day!

Fountain Pen
Say what you will, but acknowleding all the hard work your honey does can do wonders for you both! And a great way to say “great job”? A great pen. (I grew up with a Mom who LOVES office supplies, so I have to say pen and office supply gifts are some of my fave.)
Some of my fave pens? Custom, personal Executive Nautical. (A friend makes them and they are just to die for!) My other picks for saying “thanks for working so hard!”:

Heart Shaped
Cliche? Yes. But still popular for a reason! Nothing says “I love you” like a heart! My picks:

Chocolate and Wine
Is there ever a bad time for chocolate and wine? I didn’t think so! And just in case you need something to add to those amazing gifts, here are my picks:

I would love to know: how do you celebrate Valentine’s Days? And what do you give as gifts?
