Ode to Valentines

I just think its mandatory to write a post about one of the Most Bullshit days of the calendar.

And what better than sharing with you the most brilliant and creative piece of advice i have read in a long while:

Last-Minute Valentine's Day Gifts to Pick Up on the Way Home from Work

Avoid the lines at the florist, the department store, and the chocolatier, and dash into one of these stores for unconventional Valentine's Day gifts instead:

  • At a Toy Store - Pick up Twister, the Milton-Bradley game that's fun for all ages. And even more fun for adults.
  • At Home Depot - Pick up an elegant dendrobium orchid, potted and ready for Valentine's Day giving.
  • At Walgreen's - Pick up massage oils and body chocolate (available in four flavors) in the Valentine‚Äôs Day aisle.
Last-Minute Valentine's Day Gifts for Women

Even if you select them at the last minute, gifts that bear a big red heart are sure to melt hers. Some ideas:

  • Heart-shaped locket
  • Heart-shaped picture frame, with a picture of the two of you
  • Heart-shaped, red-satin box of chocolates
  • Heart-shaped candies that say "I Love You"
Last-Minute Valentine's Day Gifts of Desperation

Quick items to grab and go:

  • Stuffed animal from stationery store
  • Book of love poetry
  • Store-bought book of love IOU's
  • Heart-shaped cake or cupcakes from supermarket or convenience store.

Even if your gift is acquired last minute, your thoughtfulness and generosity will be appreciated and the good feelings will last long past Valentine's Day. Just don't forget to include a Valentine's Day card!!

I wonder how much research it took to these guys to come up with such wonderful ideas!

Just for the record and future reference, I am a woman and my heart definitely does NOT melt with gifts that bear a big red heart.

Over and out!
