Spending the day of love away from your sweetie is hard. I’m dealing with a long-distance relationship that's approximately 783 miles long, which makes being together on Valentine’s Day nearly impossible. Luckily, thanks to the brilliance of technology and the good people at FedEx, you can ship virtually anything to your long-lost lover to remind them how much you appreciate them. And nothings says "love" like unnecessary calories.
