Valentine's Day is almost here. Once again, I set out on the hunt for the perfect gift. Ugh. The problem I suffer from is being to practical. Traditional gifts like flowers, just die and jewelery, just sits in a box. However, there are many gifts that can be used everyday. I'm not going to name them. So what to do? Why is it that women like flowers and/or jewelery anyway? There's always sexy lingerie but is that for the guy or the gal. And can a man actually go and buy stuff like that without feeling like a total perv?
I have gotten better at buying these gifts. However, my wallet always tends to shrink when I go to buy the "lovey-dovey" items. If there was a Practicality Day, I would be KING. So, once again I'm "putting my chips on the table" "stepping up to the plate""rollin' the dice" and any other over-used phrase and giving a gift to my sweetheart Gretchen. I think she will like it. Practical or lovey-dovey? I'm not telling.
Listen up MEN! Play it safe: With flowers, candy, jewelery and a great dinner you hit a home run ( and maybe in more ways than one). And ladies, please don't be disappointed. He's trying.
This was what was on my mind today.
