Gift from the Heart: The ‘I Didn’t Forget’ Guide to Winning Valentine’s Day – The Root


While 70 percent of people in a relationship say receiving a gift for Valentine’s Day is “very important” to them, 60 percent would give their partners an “F” for effort on the holiday, likely the same 60 percent who are hoping a little attention to V-Day will translate to rekindling the romance. Gift them with a copy of the nearly 30-year-old sensual anthology Erotique Noire/Black Erotica ($19.95 on Amazon Prime), which features some of the best known black authors in the world—including Ntozake Shange, Alice Walker, Audre Lorde and Chester Himes—writing about sex and intimacy in all their iterations.
