Yea. I rushed home from work this morning to have coffee with hubs before he went to work. And we are taking dd to dinner after girlscouts.

He bought us both candies. But that's it. We have never bought actual gifts. i mean this isn't Christmas

A gift is a gift. The cost of the gift doesn't make it any different. So either it's a gift giving holiday or it isn't. As far as I can see it always has been one.
