Valentine gift ideas for the lady you love

Updated on January 19, 2011

Oh no, not Valentines Day again

It's that time of year again.

We all know that we should tell the lady we love, that we love them more often than we do. We all know that Valentine’s Day is a complete rip-off. Flowers, chocolates and perfumes all jump up in price the week before Valentines Day but still, we fall for it.

Is it the guilt or fear of letting down our girlfriends, fiancées or wives that compel us to open our wallets and get the money out? Or are we following like sheep. Everybody else buys gifts, so I have to do as well.

Do we buy gifts so that we can get something back in return? Have women some how managed to program us men into participating in this sham? Is the world of consumerism forcing us poor men into submission. Is it all one big conspiracy?

No. Valentines Day exists to remind us of our loved ones. It helps to focus our minds. It places an emphasis on one day of the year. Just one day when "I love you". Really means, "I love you".

I know that we should tell them every day but honestly, hand on heart. How many of us actually do it? Our busy lives prevent us from doing it. So I am not ashamed to admit it, I love Valentines Day; I look forward to it, Yeah. The sooner, the better. It should be monthly not annually. (Sorry, just got a bit carried away there) so for this reason, I am placing some of my gift ideas on this page because I know that us men are useless when it comes to gift ideas.

      Thanks Ghost32. I will admit that the comment about Valentine's Day every month was a little tongue in cheek. Ha Ha

      Valentine's Day every month? Man, that thought is just EVIL...!

      Have to admit that red bull looks pretty cool, though.
