Have you ever thought of Valentine’s Day as a day to remember your women friends – those stalwart beings who take your personal calls, watch your kids, rejoice in your victories, and sympathize with your sorrows?

I remember once that I had a friend in marketing, who mysteriously invited a group of women to lunch on February 14. We assumed that she was about to introduce a new product somehow tied into Valentine’s Day. But we were wrong. We were simply a group of gals she liked a lot, and she wanted to observe the day by expressing her gratitude for our support at a lovely restaurant.

At our places was a small personal gift, which touched us all. This holiday of love can be hard for some, but we each felt as though we received a Valentine that year, and it was fun to partake in the day.

Is there a person in your life who, perhaps challenged by two long pandemic years, could use a pick-me-up? At FortunoffJewelry.com, we have a wide array of gifts in all price ranges, which could serve well as a Valentine’s Day remembrance. Here are some small and sweet gifts to show you care:

"What the world needs now, is love, sweet love / It's the only thing that there's just too little of," says the great Burt Bacharach/Hal David song. Let’s fix that problem this Valentine’s Day.
