A Box of V-Day Love For Your Bestie, Courtesy of Packed Party

Last year on Valentine’s Day, I watched Gossip Girl while eating Italian food and drinking red wine in bed with one of my favorite girlfriends.

(Yeah, enjoy your steak dinner in a tight dress and heels–I’m going to polish off another tortellini in my pjs.)

But I think tokens of affection for the pillars of support in our lives are the best part of the holiday.

Cue: Packed Party.
