If you know me, and they know that I am not extremely picky or undeserving, I usually accept bad gifts with a smile, but I feel a change in myself and thought it would be nice to at least vent here about the things that I DO NOT want for Valentines Day.
For one, the infamous chocolates.
Keep em, thats right give them to your mother. Theres nothing that I can do with a box of chocolates besides sit at work and eat them one after another, looking pitiful. Besides, you know I’m shooting for the Jet Beauty of the Week pretty soon, don’t mess up a good thing.
A Teddy Bear, not even the one you took the time to build at Build-A-Bear workshop, unless you’re my two-year old child.
I have tons of bears big ones small ones ugly ones. And I keep them all because who wants to throw away a stuffed animal? It doesn’t mean I want it cluttering up my room. It honestly looks tacky…”We grown out here Craig”
Dinner and a movie, omg thats boring, besides if you’re a good boyfriend this is usually a guaranteed outing at least twice a month, there’s nothing at all romantic about that. Especially if we’re long terming it.
A gift card, on to the next. I think its impersonal, and if you don’t know my style by now enough to pick out something nice for me, then we may need to re-evaluate “us”.
Everything else is free rein. I guess I’m just not into the traditional gifts as listed above. I want something that actually requires some thought.
If you know your girl is into art, take her to a museum, body paint with her.
If its music she loves, make her a cd, write her a poem, sing softly to her in her ear. If you’re local then you know Bilal is coming to KC on 02/13/2010, take her to see him, no matter how much you think he’s mocking Prince. Try secretly learning to play an instrument in 12 days and on the 14th play it for her…naked.
If she likes to shop, take the time to pick out a nice black dress for her, and some sexy pumps. You can’t go wrong with a little black dress, she will love it.
There are so many other ways to enjoy the holiday. I’m pretty easy to please, I’d like a Blackberry, a walk in the park, a nice Coach Bag, breakfast in bed, a Tiffany’s Tennis Bracelet, a subtle cologne..I’m really not that expensive. 🙂
So for anyone out there who’s shopping for iKeish, I really hope this helps.
