America has forgotten that it is the thought that counts. A dozen long stem red roses are nice, but one would have done the job. The "reservation required, " romantic dinner for two is a lovely thought and would be enjoyable, but so would a Netflix movie and the brown bag special from Sonic. There are thousands of trinkets and cute little gifts that can purchased from the local retail chains. However, gifts from the heart are more graciously received and remembered more fondly than any cute little teddy bear or dancing gorilla. The point here is keep it simple. Keep it practical and give a gift that comes straight from the heart.
