Small things. Big Love. How to show your love every day.

 In How Tos, Inspiration

Letting someone know you love them just one day a year is old news. Yes, February 14th is the best day for revealing your secret love. But for those enduring relationships in your life, you may be asking what is the best way to show your love this Valentines day?

Think of Valentines day as a start of some new relationship rituals, a day to set the tone for a new year of showing your love. We love chocolates, flowers and champagne just as much as you do, but it’s the every day small tokens of affection that really count. We asked our team and friends to share how they show their love with us (and you):
