Valentine’s Day gift ideas
My husband and I learned years ago to skip going out to dinner on Valentine's Day. We avoid the crowds, weird seating times and expensive prix-fixe menus. Instead, we celebrate with a nice home-cooked meal, some candles and a little champagne.
Here are some Valentine's Day gift ideas to help you celebrate with a home-cooked meal.
