It’s a common trope: Valentine’s Day is tricky. There’s pressure to get it just right. You don’t want to spend too much, or too little. You want to send the right message without going too far — it’s a balancing act.
Whether you just started dating, are in that phase where you’re both fond of each other, but haven’t taken the relationship plunge, or have been together for years, it’s nice to say you care with something a little more unique than what’s typically marketed to us.
