Valentine’s Day is a time to spoil our spouses, woo our lovers, and yeah, remember to call our mother!. Valentine’s Day offers us many ways to express our love and emotions. On Valentine’s Day we celebrate real love.
Sometimes its very romantic, sometimes hopeless, sometimes its broken hearts or a broken nose. All can occur on Valentine’s Day. Almost 20 billion dollars is spent on Valentines Day and about two-thirds of that money spent for today is on food. Well if you consider candy as food. In fact, we spend more on candy than flowers and cards combined.
With Valentine’s Day, you need to put some thought into what you’re going to give your sweetheart. It doesn’t always need to be a huge gesture with a Valentine’s Day gift. But you can treat someone to something nice, even if you know it’s just something they need rather than something they want.
So with that said, please don’t buy your sweetheart something for Valentines Day at Lowes. Or Home Depot or Walmart either. Sorry but your wife doesn’t need a new mop or storage container for this day. And your boyfriend just got power tools for Christmas, so get a little creative.
What not to buy for Valentines Day.
- Maglite LED Flashlight.
- A Garden Hose
- Gallon of Paint
- Miter Saw
- Throw Rug
- Pressure Treated Lumber
- New Door Lock
- Push Mower
- Attic Insulation
Yes, you do need to think outside the box on this holiday, people. This may be one of the few times I recommend doing a little shopping at the mall. Think JC Penny, Kohls, Target, Macy’s etc…
So forget home improvement items for Valentines Day.
Stick to the classics: flowers, jewelry, lingerie, a great looking shirt, candy, or a nice dinner.
Valentine’s Day gifts can be touchy depending on what type of relationship you’re in, and it can be easy to overthink the whole thing. No matter what kind of man or woman you’re buying for or taking out, nor how serious you are, just put a little thought into it.
