How to Avoid A Valentine's Day Disaster!
Valentine's Day is another one of those tricky holidays. It isn't like St. Patrick's Day or Groundhog Day. It isn't as easy as Fourth of July or Easter. Valentine's Day is one of those holidays that you have something to prove. If you fall short - well you may be sporting a new date next Valentine's Day so you need to handle this holiday with care.
Shopping is one of my specialties! I might be able to help you avoid a disaster by sharing a few simple ideas to impress your date. You do not have to spend a lot of money to have a perfect Valentine's Day, this is one of those "thought that counts" kinda holidays.
This is one of those holidays that can feel like a trap. If you ask your girl friend what she wants for Valentine's Day - she is likely to say, "oh you don't have to get me anything!" Do not fall for that! It is a TEST! I think so many girls say that and then they get mad when their date doesn't put forth much effort toward getting a gift. Guys are literal creatures. Don't say you don't want anything and then get mad if he doesn't get you anything after all - he was following your directions! You should just say, "surprise me!"
For the men that are currently in relationships - the pressure is on! What you decide to get for Valentines Day could make or break your relationship. This particular gift might be looked upon as the measuring stick of your love. Your girl friend may be expecting you to pop the question! If you do love your girlfriend and you aren't sure about that yet - save yourself! You can buy your girlfriend a promise ring.
A promise ring is given to signify that you have a commitment for just about any promise you would like to make. You could offer it as a promise for a future marriage proposal or the simple promise of the commitment you have made to your girlfriend. These rings can be bought for under ten dollars or they can be quite extravagant. This gift is sure to be a great choice if you really care about the girl you are seeing.
A silver locket necklace is also a romantic choice that is sure to please. The heart shaped locket is supposed to represent one's heart resting upon another.

For the Ladies
Men do want Valentine's Day gifts - they just don't admit it and they do not want roses. I love to buy my husband tickets to sporting events - or concerts that I know he loves. I always check out ticket masters to see what is going on in my area. I have even bought tickets for him and his brother to go to sporting events out of town including a beach front hotel room for a weekend. I try to take advantage of flight and hotel deals and can manage to do this at a reasonable cost.
Depending upon the city you live in - there may be car shows, gun or knife shows or auctions that are fun to go to in your area. Do something he likes to do - even if it isn't your favorite thing to spend your time doing. You might end up having more fun than you thought you would.
Men - no matter how macho they are - do like the gesture of love. Buying his favorite music (not yours) would probably be appreciated. Many guys are still big kids. I bought my husband a remote control dune buggy one year and he loved it!
Guys love their cars! Buy a package to have his automobile detailed or if you want to spend less you could just have it washed and vacuumed at a service. New seat covers, floor mats or a nice leather steering wheel cover make good gifts. If you think about what your love interest is interested in - it shoudn't be to hard to surprise him with something thoughtful that shows him that you care.
For those of you who are broke....
The actual origin of Valentine's Day is muddled. One belief is that a Priest by the name of Valentine was martyred due to refusal to give up Christianity. He was jailed and fell in love with the jailer's daughter. Legend has it that just before he died on February 14, he wrote his love a note and signed it "From Your Valentine."
The holiday is about romance and love and not about gifts and money. A poem written on a napkin, a hand drawn sketch or a song written by you would be priceless. If you picked a flower and simply looked at your lover and told them all the reasons that you love them - the reasons they make you smile - you will have wrapped their heart around your little finger for the price of a moment of deep thought.

Don't Forget the Kids!
I do not buy huge expensive gifts for my children on Valentines Day. I do buy them something fun and special that does say I love you - but I don't buy them gifts like it is Christmas. I get my kids fun things like stickers, art books, conversations hearts, maybe a Valentine's Day shirt or a small box of candy. I have even bought them little bouquets of flowers for their bedrooms which they love.
On Valentine's Day evening - I do love to make a very special dinner and I get out my special pink crystal water pitcher and matching etched glasses and china and we eat in the dining room! I try to make the table look beautiful with the use of fresh flowers, candles, plate chargers and I even add name placards and turn on the music. It makes the night fun for everyone and don't miss any opportunity to say "I love you" to your family.
Best Wishes for A Lovely 14th!
I predict a break up in this guy's near future.
