I’m not a huge fan of manufactured holidays, but I do make an exception for St. Valentine’s Day. After all, it’s all about L-O-V-E! Romance and reunions, sweethearts and soft music. February 14th is an important reminder to cherish the ones you adore.
However, I am a staunch supporter of the anti-roses movement. I know that long-stemmed, red roses are the ultimate gesture of romance. And you know what? I love to receive them – any day for the year! But on Valentine’s Day…. the one day that they’re marked up by 100% or more… no thank you. I can’t help but think about what $75+ could buy!
Hence, I bring to you Rage Against the Roses: Twelve Valentine’s Day Gifts for Her. This year, drop a few hints early, and ask for a gift that makes an impression all year round.
