Does giving an expensive gift always make the best present? I personally have found that I would rather look at the piece of art my child made or listen to a song from a special time spent with the person I love. In these times the most precious gift can be a hug or a smile but a little something special from the heart is also nice. Let The Fru-Gal help you with an inexpensive but memorable way to spend a wonderful time with your significant other.
