Valentine Day Gifts

Valentines Day snuck up on me this year, and while I never make a big deal about it (much like New Years- #overrated) I do like grabbing some little gifts keeping in the theme my mom used when we were growing up– gifts must be red, pink or heart themed (This does not to apply to jewelry though, because we make the rules) :)  I’ve extended this include gifts of booze because that’s romantic right?
