Valentine's Day: February 14, 2015

Historically, Valentine's Day is rooted in the ancient Roman festival of Lupercalia, which was an annually remembered fertility celebration.  Now, we celebrate by giving cards and gifts to our beloved valentine.  This has evolved somewhat and now, we include family members and friends.  Your beloved National Product Reviewer humbly suggests the following for the sweeties in your life.


(1) Gift Basket (MSRP $59.99 - Shipping Included);
(1) Godiva Belgium 1926 Valentine's Day Message Truffles Bag (4.25 Oz)

Ducky City


(2) Valentine's Day Rubber Ducks  $4.50 (Red is not shown)
(6) Mini Rubber Ducks  $8.99 for the half-dozen

Ducky City is the rubber duck store online to go to.  The owner designs the ducks herself and she has many to choose from.  We received the two V-Day ducks.  One is yellow with red hearts and the other is red with yellow hearts.  They're adorable and fun to receive.  We also received a half dozen rubber ducklets.  They are small and perfect for the Valentine who's married and is wanting to expand the family.
