This is third year that I've written about Valentine's Day. Here are the first two installments.
I googled Valentine's Day gifts and I have to say "What a bunch of crap!" With Gretchen at my side we tossed through the "unique Valentine's Day gifts" and this is what I've discovered:
Make anything in heart shape and you can sell it as a Valentine's day gift. Here are a few examples.
A heart shaped USB cup warmer--because nothing says I love you than "Honey spend some more time on your computer than with me. I know you have millions of more items to re-pin."
These are perfect for the wife who never listens to you
Apparently, I love you more when your drunk

|Personalized Barley Pitcher|
|Beer Holster with Bottle Opener|
"Sweetheart, here is some place for all your bullshit!"
Now of all of the items that we looked at, Gretchen liked the chocolate covered berries the best.
That computes in my brain as "I should by her a fondue pot. That way she can have dipped fruit anytime she wants. And for $49.95, I could probably buy her two." After I expressed that to her, she tells me that I "need to take a gift giving class for Economist." Translation "YOU CHEAP ASS!!"
I think I should feel insulted but I don't. I could go really cheap and make her a "ticket book" or a "mix tape". (if only I could find a tape recorder)
Anyway, as I do every year, I will go out and do my best. And hopefully hit a homerun. ;-D
