Valentine's gift ideas for the young, old, single, married and everything in between

Valentine’s Day is a troubled holiday. Of all the major holidays, does any get more critiques for being a commercialized nightmare that does the opposite of its intention, with couples ending up quarreling and singles feeling more alone? Is there another holiday capable of making people turn on Lifetime and calling up their comforting friends, Ben and Jerry?

This year, Valentine’s Day deserves a break. Despite its negatives, it’s important to remind your loved ones (not just a girlfriend or boyfriend!) just how much you love them. If you aren’t as skilled as Nicholas Sparks in expressing your feelings of love, here are a few gift suggestions that just might help get your message across.
