Friendship, Life


While most of the pressure for Valentine’s Day rests squarely on your guy’s shoulders, it doesn’t go unnoticed when you put a little effort into what you’ll be bringing to the table. After all you don’t want to end up gifting your man a heart-shaped pizza in the eleventh hour. That being said, edible gifts should not be out of the running. Regardless of how archaic the old adage may sound, it’s hard to deny there isn’t a little truth in finding the way to a man’s heart through his stomach (gifts 2,5,7 and 11 have you covered in that arena). The rest of my suggestions are all some variation of cute, funny or romantic and (as always) all of them are made in the U.S.
