It's the gift that counts
Having Valentine's Day so soon after Christmas was just sloppy planning on the part of the God of Festival Scheduling. Surely he could have foreseen what a compressed timeframe guys have to work with. There's barely enough time for them to save the tens of thousands of dollars for another modest gift from the heart. They're also still burnt out from the ordeal of having to come up with the bestest Xmas present ever.
No wonder so many people resort to the traditional flowers and chocolates. Boring but safe enough to prevent your gonads from being ripped off. All she wants is what her colleague sitting beside her is getting, but noticeably bigger and delivered with more fanfare.
However there are also some special things you can do that will increase the chances of her putting out.
Try using a different colour in your rose bouquet other than red. For example, coral and orange roses, mean "desire". You'll have your lady love's headgear off in no time!
Combine her favourite type of chocolate with her celebrity crush. One popular selection is the Brad Pitt bar, made of exceptionally dense chocolate, but nonetheless a vast improvement on the live version. In this mouthwatering confection you will also find the complete range of facial expressions used in "Meet Joe Black".
On the flip side of the coin, it is a relative cinch to buy romantic gifts for men. They also like things that are big and flashy, but are less likely to wither after a few days. This year our job has been made much easier with the release of the world's largest plasma tv.
What could possibly be that good that it would need 103 inches of screen coverage? Well there's the upcoming Winter Olympics, the widescreen extended director's cut collector edition of "Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo" and I hear that after 5000 episodes, one of the storylines on The Bold and the Beautiful might be starting to move forward. And of course, there's always the sports.
