29 Thoughtful + Romantic (Not Cheesy!) Valentine’s Day Gifts For Him

Valentine’s Day is such a fun little holiday!

While it can’t compete with Christmas (or even a first anniversary), February 14th arrives smack dab in the middle of winter, giving us a festive distraction from cold dreary days and the seasonal depression that often comes with it.

Besides, celebrating minor holidays brings an extra dose of delight to our days.

After hearing Gretchen Rubin suggest that we take full advantage of every celebration in her book, The Happiness Project, I’ve been fully committed to do at least a little something to make each holiday special.
