Embarrass Your True Love
Because if the whole office doesn’t know about your undying affection, then what’s the point? Order up a legit barbershop quartet.

They sing up to two songs, so your little snuggle muffin’s co-workers will have plenty of time to whip out their phones. It’s the best $50 you’ll spend this year.
