83402605It’s that time of the year again. Some call it Singles Awareness Day, but most of us know it as Valentine’s Day. A day where love, romance, and chocolate fill the air. Valentine’s Day is an opportunity to approach your crush or send a special message to your loved one. However, it also gives brands a chance to get involved in the festivities.
