Valentine's Day has become big business on the retail market. Lover to lover, it seems, Valentine's Day gift-giving is on a par with Christmas gift-giving.
Bob and I have never made a big deal out of Valentine's day, and that seems to shock some people.
For us, it's never been a way of proving or not proving our love.
We have been husband and wife for more than half a century; and throughout those years, he's been my valentine and I've been his.

But we believe a loving gift is better and means more when given small, in unexpected moments and on impulse only.

It shouldn't be compulsive.
