More Delysia Valentine’s Day Gifts




Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and while my husband and I never really make a big deal out of the holiday I think it’s the perfect opportunity for a small token of affection.  To me, gifts should be something unexpected or that you normally wouldn’t indulge in yourself. They’re a way to tell someone else how much you appreciate them.  So here are a few ideas for just about anyone on your list – significant others, friends, and even the little ones.  And better yet? All of these gift ideas come from small businesses!
