When it comes to the big V-Day, we all have an opinion. You get the 'it all feels a little forced' group to the 'ooooh, but I looooove Valentine's' lovebirds (usually daters or newlyweds) and then of course, the all-out haters. Like, I have a friend who is happily married with kids but she just despises the day. But let me just say that if her husband hadn't bought her a package of Tide washing machine cleaner last Valentine's, she might not hate it so much. Even if it was a joke. Ahem. Not funny.
I know a lot of men who just can't figure out what we want, and can you blame them? I mean, I can distinctly recall telling my husband one year that we were NOT under ANY circumstances buying each other gifts and then being distinctly disappointed when I didn't get anything. I didn't say that I didn't want a card? Or flowers? Or just a little gift? Something? Anything? I thought he understood the code.
So, if you're a girl whose significant is frequently lost, you can send them this little list as inspiration. If you're a guy who is fresh out of ideas, remember that something is always better than nothing - unless it has anything to do with laundry. And if you're flying solo and just feel like showing yourself some L.O.V.E. this Valentine's, nothing does it quite like shopping.
Sending you lots of love and sweet shopping vibes,
