Valentine's Day - Listen Up Men!

Post by JollyMon66 »

Well...Valentine's Day is almost upon us. Many of us guys are scrambling to find something nice for our wives, girl friends, or significant others. I was reading on-line today about the WORST gifts you can give so I thought I would pass on my new found knowledge.

Apparently these are all BAD Valentine's Day gift ideas...go figure!

#5 - Lingerie (spare me...she reads books with women in lingerie on the cover!)
#4 - Anything that is really for you (but the new Xbox game is really cool...she'll love it...we can play together)
#3 - Helpful Gifts (vacuum cleaners...most things that plug in...she did say she hates the vacuum we have)
#2 - Shape Up Gifts (work out DVDs, scales, treadmills...but she says she wants to loose weight...this a great idea...kill 2 birds with one stone?)
#1 - Abosolutely Nothing (not sure how giving her nothing is worse than giving her something she doesn't want)


So there it is men...damned if we do....damned if we don't. Guess I gotta go back to the drawing board. Ladies...take it easy on us...we try hard to please (usually)

Flowers always worked for me - my particular favorite is yellow roses.
But it really IS the thought that counts, not the actual gift.

Here's a few tips for buying cards.

1. If for the wife, make sure it says wife on it.
2. Lots of words. Don't waste time actually reading the card. If there's a lot of words on the card, she'll think you spent the time to read it.
3. Make sure the card is occasion appropiate. (Christmas cards for a birthday just won't cut it)

Daggumit! I wish you had posted this before that birthday, several years ago, that I gave Margret a Weber charcoal grille. I was thinking that every time I cooked something it would be like a birthday present. She was thinking . . . Oh, well, if I knew then what I know now I would have gotten some cheese cake dipped in chocolate.

Fins Up!

Yes it is. Especially the occasion appropiate part. Gave a beautiful, sentimental anniversary card one time, too bad it was her birthday. :-?


At least I remembered the card.
