Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and while the single cynic in us simply plans to go to spin class with a girlfriend and drown our sorrows in an extra large glass of wine afterwards, the hopeless romantic sitting on our other shoulder can't wait to shower the ones we love with sunshine and happiness. See, there's something beautiful about Valentine's Day, even if it is just a Hallmark holiday made up by the industry. When else do we get a day simply dedicated to showing our favorite people that we love them? Sure, Valentine's Day is about romance, but it's also become much more than that. It can be used to tell your family you care, to spend the perfect evening with your girlfriends (or guy friends, of course!). It's an excuse to celebrate the people you love, and really, what's better than that?
While we're all in favor of a delicious box of chocolates and some long-stemmed red roses, we always appreciate when people go above and beyond in the name of Cupid. That's why we put together our favorite love-related art pieces as a gift guide – because everyone knows a piece of art that reads, "TO THE MOON AND BACK" says a whole lot more, for a whole lot longer, than a box of chocolates ever could!
