Your significant other will keep a love letter even if your relationship ends; it is a perfect token and reminder of something special. So if you’re struggling trying to think of a last minute Valentine’s Day gift, look no further than your desk and your own mind. As long as it’s from the heart, he/she is sure to be impressed.
