Every year we celebrate the year’s
only day dedicated to love by
going out and spending copious
amounts of cash on trinkets for
our signifi cant others. It’s a day
that can stump the most creative
lovers with what to get that
special someone. Here’s a quick
list of the obvious “please avoid
at all cost” gifts of love.
Surprise, surprise. You bought
them candy. You and everyone else
are making sure Russell Stover
makes their yearly sales plan.
While a generally appreciated gift
(who doesn’t love chocolate?), it is
a predictable one at best. Maybe try
spicing it up with a candy bouquet
or maybe a giant lollypop. Less
predictable and just as sweet.
Have that reservation at Orso’s
all lined up? While romantic
and probably delicious, don’t be
surprised if you witness every
other couple in Anchorage all
dressed up and googly-eyed. So
go ahead, order the Cr?me Brulee.
It’s easier than creativity.
Flowers are beautiful and
uniquely satisfying – if it’s not a
holiday when every other person
you know is getting a bouquet.
Plus, how can you know if the
bouquet you’re getting her is going
to bigger and better than the chick
with the desk right next to hers? Is
that a risk you’re willing to take?
They say diamonds are a girl’s
best friend, and it’s mostly true.
They’re beautiful and are the
easiest way of proving to a lady
that you have some cash you’re
willing to invest with her. But
a pair of diamond earrings on
V-Day? No one’s ever thought of
Yeah. You plan on having sex on Valentine’s Day. When told, this is
the reaction I would expect:
“Really? Wow, I never would have thought of having sex today.
Defi nitely not what I was expecting. Fancy dinner too?”
This is a lie. Now, you should defi nitely “get some” if you have the
option, but if that’s your only Valentine’s gift, try again or fi nd someone
else to have sex with, because while more exciting than fl owers, it is
defi nitely not original.
