Wedding (or Valentine’s day) gifts are fun to shop for no matter who the couple is, although it can be tough if you are not super close to them to buy personal gifts. It is no different to buy a gift for a same sex couple than for any other couple that is sharing their love and lives through marriage. It is a joyous, special day for them; maybe even more so if they have had to wait to marry due to laws that did not allow it in their state.
