Valentine’s is just around the corner and listening to a bit of Burt Bacharach’s music this past week, (without sounding too cliché), I was a bit taken back by how one of his songs, What the World Needs Now, is so in tune to today’s world’s situation. With that in mind, here are a few things that have been on the radar this season to spread a little love, sweet, love. 10 Valentine’s Gifts for the Universe.
