Handmade Sweets for Your Valentine

According to Mint.com, when buying candy for their Valentine the average person spends $22.72 at Godiva or $26.25 at See’s Candies. While these options are certainly tempting and delicious, this year why not doing something a little more sentimental, heartfelt and significantly cheaper? Below are some of our favorite finds from around the web for giving your sweetheart the perfect sweet!
