It is often said that, most of the time, we treat the ones we love quite badly, taking them for granted, not doing nice things for them, and sometimes we are just plain mean to them. That's why it's nice when Valentine's Day comes along, and we are reminded to do something nice for the ones we love.
Used to be that Red Roses were the traditional Valentine's Day gift, but in today's cheap-grocery-store-world roses have lost that I'm-giving-something-special appeal. Most Roses don't even smell anymore.
So how would you finish this sentence ...Love is...? If you are thinking about what to get for Valentine's Day, here are some Gift Ideas from The Camellia in Thunder Bay, Ontario.
