- I have a set of coffee mugs given to me years ago by my husband. But it's not the mugs that are great-- it's the story. He waited until the last possible second on Valentine's Day to buy a set a coffee mugs for me that I had wanted in a coffee shop. There were none left, so he purchased this set instead. They're so silly, artsy, whimsical... Crazy colors used to paint ladies with giant colorful hats. It's hard to describe, but they're totally not my taste. However, I'll never get rid of them because we giggle each time I look at them, thinking about my reaction to the mugs when he gifted them to me. 😄❤️  -Becky, Mackinaw

- I received a Valentine-shaped box of chocolates from a boyfriend while I was still in high school. (We broke up the next week! Good timing -- right?!!) But Denzil and I haven't done presents for each other for Christmas, birthdays, anniversaries, or other holidays for many years. We don't need "stuff", so we do Cards -- sometimes pretty ones, sometimes funny ones! The best ever was a Victorian card with three Victorian-decorated hearts hanging on a ribbon. That was in 1997. It still hangs on the hook of a wall shelf in the living room.  -Carol, Delavan

- The best Valentine gift I've ever received was one year when a friend of mine was babysitting a few kids and I had my child. We decided to have a friend's Valentine night and a kids play date. We made chicken nuggets for the kids and later kept the kids occupied with popcorn and a movie. My friend and I decided to make shishkabobs while pairing it with a glass of wine. He gave me a beautiful red vase with a flower placed inside. Along with the vase, he gave me a friendship Valentine card with a khols gift card. That night was a very special and memorable. We made it work between the kids and us. I still have the red vase today!  -Gina, Tremont

- The finest Valentines gift I received was on February 14th 2009 when the Lord blessed my life and my health by removing the toxic poisons from a 4 pack per daily addiction of tobacco. Through prayer and fasting the Lord removed that addiction,  cold turkey. The first 4 months was rough, but if I had an urge to smoke I grabbed my Bible and read scripture. It 14 years now and the addiction is gone. The shackles that Satan had on me were broken by the power of prayer and the Grace of God.  -David, Wilmington

- We lived in Germany, glass blown roses.  -Shirley, LaRose

- Working at the hospital for many years made it hard to get Valentine's Day off; so usually, we would celebrate the day before the holiday.  I can't remember a favorite one, but I love to eat dinner at a quiet restaurant and come home and watch a "chic flick" with my hubby! During covid, he cooked me a gourmet dinner at home where he made everything from scratch, served it on fine china by candlelight and even cleaned up the kitchen afterwards!  -Holly, Peoria, IL
