A Valentine’s Day gift

Valentines Day is tomorrow, Feb. 14. Are you a romantic person who surprises your sweetheart with that special gift? Do you like chocolates, flowers, jewelry or maybe a book? I am a romantic at heart and I love getting any of the above gifts. Now, I know that some of the stores had Valentine’s Day gifts on the shelves right after Christmas, so I guess we have all had plenty of time to get something for that special someone.

They say a woman remembers Valentine’s Day more than a man does. She is more apt to throw out hints on what she wants and nine chances out of ten she will also buy her sweetie something.

But, did you know, guys, that there are certain items your gal just may not want for Valentine’s Day? In fact, there is a list of what not to buy women and a list of what not to buy for men on Feb. 14. I find the list interesting, because not everyone is alike and we all have different ideas of what constitutes a “gift of love.”
