So here it is Valentine’s Day and you haven’t gotten your Girlfriend/Significant other/Booty call a gift. A stop into Duane Reade or CVS won’t do. The florist is outta roses or your pocket is outta cash to buy roses ;) What do you do? Well I have a few suggestions. I’m a girl (at least last I checked) and I’m good at gift ideas.
