Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching

The problem with Valentine’s day is that its become a horrible holiday – it is forced down peoples throats as the one day a year you should show your romantic partner that you care.  Really?! why isnt this everyday – ok ok how about twice a week and on your birthdays?

No huh… we gotta do this — we gotta do this holiday — so lets get it right.

1) yes you need a card or two – and you totally need a card from the kids


2) the gift – this could be optional depending on who your wife is or what the situation is… my wife always you dont have to get me anything – and if I dont get her anything I might as well buy myself ear plugs because I’ll hear about it for the next 3 months about how I didn’t get her anything – so I guess my advice just get something…. ok maybe just something – because then you’ll get yelled at about who picked this out — so you might need to spending 3 minutes maybe 6 minutes thinking what does she use or need?

–Quick suggestions:

Spa treatments — my wife doesnt go for the massages but she loves facials.

Jewelry — my wife is super picky so I’m avoiding this one from now on… has never worked out for me.

Clothing — my wife loves fashion but my tastes have a lot that is to be desired…. so you can go and ask for help just make sure you know the right size.

TIP: check the dirty clothing for her current size.

Technology — my wife loves her iphone, ipad, camera & lens but I’m not sure that screams valentine’s day to her but yours might love a new iPad.

Candy — my wife loves chocolate and thats about it.

Liquor — my wife loves champagne picking up one of those fancy bottles is always great.

Travel — who’s wife wouldnt love a night away (with you or without you :P)  maybe even if its a local city for a one night hotel or a trip to a remote island.

Gift Cards — my wife likes this as much as having a screaming toddler keeping her up all night. avoid these unless its your last choice.
