When you first starting dating, you and your significant other couldn't IMAGINE spending Valentine's Day apart. But then, as your relationship grew and life got busier, you realized that Valentine's Day really is just another day. When you spend nearly every day with someone, taking a time out to celebrate your love on one specific day just because you're told you have to feels a lot like an obligation. Forced romance.... sexyyyyyyy.
So, you and your partner decided long ago to not give into the Hallmark hysteria. If you're feeling up to it, you can use it as an excuse to have a nice dinner together. If you're busy, well, I'll see you tomorrow (and the next day, and the next day, and literally every day after that). But if you aren't going to be in the same space as your beloved, a great gesture of your love would be to gift this newly-released Veuve Cliq' Call ($69, Veuve Clicquot), which features a bottle of champagne and a box that allows you to record a voice message. It's almost like you're there. Almost.
