Beware of These as Valentine’s Day Gifts
Okay, before you do something rash and get the wrong thing, here are some items to avoid this year. Unless you're looking for a one way ticket to Splitsville.
Anything 'As seen on TV' - Although some stores have a shelf full of "As seen on TV" items. It's cheaper and you don't pay for the S&H. Just rip off the corner where it says "As seen on TV" and you're good to go.
Bargain bin chocolate - If it's chocolate that she's never heard of before, just tell her it's exotic and it has special romantic powers....and hope she doesn't check.
Too big/small lingerie - I don't know if you win buying lingerie. If it's too big, she thinks "how big do you think I am." If it's too small, she wonders "What are you trying to tell me? Does you think I need to lose weight?"
Gift cards - See this is where we can't win. If I buy the lingerie or jewelry that isn't right then I look like a fool. If I give her a gift card so that she can pick it out, it looks like I don't care enough to take the time to get it. Speaking of jewelry.
Cheap Jewelry - The hard part is as a man, I have no idea if it's cheap. I've bought jewelry at Knobels souvenir shop and I've glued dimes on rings (Dime on ring....say it out loud.)
They say flowers are always a safe bet, but be careful to get the right kind or you'll be Stupid instead of Cupid. Good luck!
