I Have a Unique Gift for You on Valentine's Day !

It's Valentine's Day fellow lovers! It's time for us once again to celebrate the reality that love still exists -the universal love between couples, parent and child, sister and brother, two friends, one person and a total stranger, a person and a pet, etc., etc. From the biggest malls in the advanced cities the world over to the smallest booths in the poorest towns, we see innumerable gift ideas. They come in shapes as unusual gift, unique gift, personalized gift, gift for him, gift for her. Indeed Valentine's Day is a holiday of gifts!


I have unique gift for 10 of my blogger friends  although without their knowing it,  they have made my short stay in the internet a happy experience.  So I'm giving them their blogging award, The Happy 101 Award. Grab it, my friends.
