For the majority of the planet, today is a holiday, of sorts. Well, at least for the romantic at heart. It is of course Valentine's Day.
By 9am this morning most retailers were flooded with husbands, boyfriends and significant others rushing to get something for the lady in their life in hopes of getting laid later on. :)
And there is certainly no shortage of ideas for the guys shopping for their girl today.
Obviously the card is a given. Who better than Hallmark to express your deepest love, emotion and affection.
Flowers, roses in particular, were murdered in droves over the last couple weeks in preparation for this day.
For the girls who don't care for flowers, or have allergies, a balloon bouquet is a sweet alternative.
You could give her an adorable stuffed animal to cuddle when you're not there to keep her warm. Whether she is 4 or 94, women loves stuffed animals.
Chocolate is almost always a safe bet! And the fact that it is sold in velvet heart shaped boxes is a mushy little bonus.
Some guys will get their girl her favorite fragrance. Other practical gifts for the holiday include candles, handbags, spa gift certificates, etc. All likely to be appreciated.
Those of you who really want to score, or maybe are celebrating your first Valentine's Day married will want to buy her something that sparkles. Diamonds are in deed a woman's best friend.
Some of you may have a dense or self-centered girl so you'll want to get a gift that reminds her to uphold her end of the bargain later tonight after the candle-lit dinner. Lingerie is a great idea.
Then of course, there are the girls like me who view this holiday as just another day on the calendar. For us, the only red we care to see today are those lovingly applied marks on our naughty bare bottoms. :)
Happy Valentine's Day!
