Gift giving during holidays like Valentine's Day can be a little stressful and a little overdone. Does she really want red roses? Does he really need that (_fill in boring man object_)? We've learned, it really is the thought that counts. So, we went out and bought a potato. Carve a potato with hearts, flowers, or your portrait, dip it in water-based ink and stamp on thick paper. Fold in half and you have a handmade card to state your love in. You can even show them your inky fingers as proof.
