What’s Love? A quirky valentines day roundup

Valentines Day. Some love it, some hate it, and others just don’t give a damn.

So what is love? I don’t want to, so I’m not going to, try to answer this unanswerable question, because love is an intangible thing that everyone feels, but experiences differently throughout their entire lives…however I will present to you via beautiful, clever, quirky, and just plain nice handmade gifts (yes I am totally playing into the commercial/consumerism nature of valentines day, condemn me now) a few different kinds of love. So here it is, a roundup of lovely gifts for your lover or your friend; new or old, near or far, naughty or nice, for better or for worse.
