Gift Ideas for Valentine’s Day 2009

Valentine’s Day has gotten so blown out of proportion.

It used to be that a card or flowers or a box of candy were enough. But now it seems that you can’t say “love” without a triple-diamond pendant or a spa weekend.

Perhaps the current economic recession will help us scale back all of these holidays that have gotten out of control. Here are some small gift ideas to bring this holiday back down to Earth.
