A bouquet and a box of chocolates are classic Valentine’s gifts — but they’re also fleeting, unlike your affection. A subscription that reminds them of you with each delivery is a great way to say you’re in this thing for the long haul. Plus, who doesn’t like flowers and candy all year long?
From pampering to practical, these subscriptions can help make their life sweeter, cozier and more enriching. Since sharing is caring, you can expect to enjoy some of their bounty for yourself too.
