Be Mine: Valentines
Remember when in elementary school your mom would buy a box full of tiny Valentine’s for you to pass out to your classmates, with one extra-special larger card for your teacher? Those were the days! Not many offices would appreciate employees handing out cards one-by-one. Or anything that could be misconstrued as sexual harassment, for that matter.
A Valentine’s Day Card does not have to be an outright declaration of unbridled love. Not that anyone would discourage receiving one of those, of course, but one sweet little card sent in February can serve as a hello, a wink, or a high five. And you do not need to rely on a box of 20 nearly identical cards to get the job done. Think outside of the envelope and send a truly unique, funny and refreshing Valentine to someone who makes you smile… and maybe more.
