Valentines Day Gift Guide

Sent With Love

haveuheard sent with love

As far back as I can remember we always celebrated Valentine’s Day; not in the religious sense; it was a tradition I grew up with and continued when I became a mom. My daughters (a UF graduate and a current UF student) have not been home for Valentine’s Day for years so I use the holiday as an opportunity to send them a little love from home.

There are so many gift ideas for Valentine’s Day. Just sharing the love from HaveUHeard. We’ve added links to websites and products, (and yes, the ads and links that appear on our blogs are partners of HaveUHeard. ALL opinions about products mentioned in our blogs are 100% our own.
