In almost two weeks we’ll exchange gifts in the name of Cupid, Eros and all they represent after having celebrated a Super Bowl victory (if you’re rooting for the right team). Let 2022 be the year you step up your game and treat yourself or the apple of your eye to something that will last much longer than a box of chocolates. Have your partner fall in love with you all over again or show yourself some well-deserved kindness with our Valentine’s Day gift guide. Xoxo - Lipari Living.
