What not to give her for Valentine's Day


Perhaps it's just my husband who needs help picking out Valentine's gifts, (which is why I buy my own. Thanks Dear, for the lovely doll!) but in the interest of helping men everywhere, I am putting together a list of things not to buy your loved one. These are items I found when I googled Valentine's Day gifts.

It should go without saying that you shouldn't buy your sweetheart holiday themed toilet paper. (What says true love better than restroom items?) It's nice that you love me from top to bottom, but not that bottom. And while I'm listing things, also forgo any Kleenex that says, "You blow my mind!"


Yes, stuffed animals can be cute--and even appropriate if your loved one happens to be in junior high. For women older than that, no. Just resist the urge to buy one of these things. And whatever you do, don't go for the more bizarre stuffed animals like this one:


Happy Valentine's Day! I want to bite your head off!

And this? Only if your girlfriend is in medical school.



If you tell your loved one that you're giving her a diamond, it had better not be one of these--or you might not want to stand behind her car. Just saying.


And if you give her this, it had better turn into a prince after she kisses it. And the prince should look like George Clooney.



And to end this list--I'm not even sure what this picture is, but I somehow find it very touching that the restroom symbols will be spending a romantic day together. I hope you are so lucky.

Oh my gosh! That is hilarious.

I especially like the doll that bites heads off. :)

Husbands: Stick with chocolate and you'll do fine.

It's funny how men sometimes don't get it. After about 10 years I finally came out and told my husband, "I want flowers (yes the kind that only live a few days and then die like they're a waste of money) and chocolate for Valentine's Day. You don't have to try to be creative, just get that." :)

I would love a pink Domo! That's the one that bites heads off just in case you don't know what a Domo is. He's a sushi. I haven't seen him in pink before.

Ok, I actually like the stuffed heart. Not for Valentines Day, but I think it is funny.

I don't know, maybe I'm weird, but I LOVE stuffed animals! And I'm almost 30.

BTW- where did you find that pink monster one? My birthday's coming and I want to send my husband a hint!

I found it by googling Valentine's Day gifts and then images, but now when I tried that again, I didn't see it. Maybe they sold out . . .

And really, I suppose I shouldn't be dissing stuffed animals since I have a rather extensive doll collection.

Those are awesome! I have to say I'm glad I got dinner out instead of decorated TP.

Rebecca said...

This is so funny! I'm going to be visiting your blog often.

I have more stories about valentine day disasters than you can imagine. It's always good for a laugh. This year I was the dud though LOL

LauraB said...

Thanks for the laughs! Someone I worked with actually got his wife a dustbuster for Valentine's Day one year. When we teased him about it, he got defensive and said it was RED! Unbelievable.

This is the reason that women write romance novels, not men.

I was checking ksl.com this morning and there on the side of the page was the cover of my fair godmother advertising accuQuote. I guess chrysanthemum ever star needed a second job?:) ( excuse the iPad it likes to make changes on everything I type, no matter how accurate.)

Janette Rallison said...

True, Chrysanthemum has been pushing all sorts of wares. If I had known she was going to be such a permanent fixture on advertisements, I would have written that into the second book.

Has a guy ever given you mixed signals?

One minute he’s crazy about you and the next minute you have no clue if he ever wants to see you again?

And it’s especially hard when there’s something special between you and you have no idea what went wrong.

I assure you it’s nothing that you did.

In fact, he may even care about you a great deal and still not be able to stop himself from acting this way.

But why does this happen?

There’s one BIG reason why men do this...

And I discovered this eye opening video that will shed some light on this bizarre behaviour.

Insert subject line here and link it to: <=========> Your ex won’t be able to resist?

It all comes down to a missing “secret ingredient” that not one in a thousand women knows about...

And it’s the biggest factor that determines whether a man just “likes” you...

...or if he sees you as “The One.”

You see, this “secret ingredient” is so important to a man that no matter how attracted to you he is, or how strong your chemistry is...

If it’s missing, he’ll never be able to truly give his heart to you...

And he will always have an unshakeable urge to seek out a woman who has this one “secret ingredient.”

Here’s what I’m talking about: <=========> The difference between “like” and “love” (most women miss this)

On the other hand, when you know this powerful “secret ingredient”...

...you won’t believe how effortless, passionate and bulletproof your relationship can be.

Trust me, this is going to blow you away.

Thanks again.
