Hot on the heels of finding that perfect holiday gift (and just after you've finally paid the holiday bills off!) comes the next holiday on the calendar…the feast of St.Valentine. Wikipedia tells us that it is the traditional day on which lovers express their love for each other by sending Valentine's cards, presenting flowers or offering candy.If you're looking for something a little more original, let me offer you some Valentine gift ideas for 2009.
