The Perfect Valentine

What’s the perfect gift for your Valentine?What’s the perfect gift for your Valentine?

Even though Valentine’s Day is kind of a fake holiday, it does have some historical significance and supposedly dates all the way back to Roman times; men in times of war were not allowed to get married, but Bishop Valentine threw down and yelled, “STOP! IN THE NAME OF LOVE!” And proceeded to perform a bunch of secret weddings. Aww! But then he was arrested and eventually executed. Ouch. That’s rough. However, rumor has it, that while he was in incarcerated, he wrote a love note to the jailer’s daughter and signed it, “from your Valentine”. Awwwww. That’s a tough act to follow! So when pondering the perfect gift for the person who brightens your days, you gotta think long and hard.
