February 14th officially marks the day of love. Still, for many couples, this year looks different with city lockdowns, restricted international travel, and limited indoor dining due to the spread of COVID-19 impacting Valentine’s day plans.
Finding the right gift for a man who’s faced a pandemic alongside you is tough. Long live the days of cooking a nice meal and slipping into something more seductive. Men today require much more from the ladies in their lives than just sex.
They want to know that we love them too.
