14 Gifts for Your Travelling Valentine

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching (11 more days, oh my!) which means it’s time to shower those you love with, well, more love.  Last year, I happened to be away from home at this time, celebrating Valentine’s Day over FaceTime with Mike.  He handled it very well and gave me the perfect Valentine’s Day gift to support my choice to travel, even if it meant spending the day apart.  If you and/or your valentine happen to be of the nomadic variety, here are a few (14 to be exact) suggestions for tokens of your affection:

  1. Vintage Postcards to stay in touch with while you’re apart. Bonus points if you include stamps! ($7 for the set)

    Now that you have my best recommendations, go forth and make your better halves’ wandering hearts soar.  Bonus points if you can sneak it into their luggage before they leave (unless it’s a bottle of wine in their carry-on).  If you’re out a significant other, buy yourself all of these trinkets because, damn it, you deserve it.  Happy Early Valentine’s Day!

    What’s the best travel-related gift you’ve received?  How or where do you plan on spending your Valentine’s Day?
