‘Valentine's Day’ Posts
Despite the fact that most men find women to be very confusing and complicated, as a woman, I think women are actually more simple than imagined. There are just a few things that make most women very happy. A closet full of cute and flattering clothes, an array of stylish shoes to match, and quiet time when she’s not needed by a husband, children or work when she can just relax to read a good book, take a hot bath, or go for a run. If you can provide these simple things, the woman in your life will be happy and content.
I know it’s hard to start thinking about Valentine’s Day already, but it has a tendency to sneak up on you if you’re not paying attention. Most of us are still tired from the holiday season, and are just getting back into our routines of school and work. The last thing we want to do is think about the next holiday down the road. Lucky for you, planning ahead for this one will earn you mega brownie points for years to come.
Valentine’s Day is just one week away. Since you have found this blog, I can bet you probably haven’t already found that special gift for that special someone in your life yet. It seems to get harder and harder to find a meaningful gift for Valentine’s Day. This year I was fortunate to stumble across some helpful suggestions from Ice.com. They are a jewelry retailer that specializes in Valentine’s Day jewelry.
Like many people, I have a horrible story about a Valentine’s Day that was ruined by someone who gave me a lame gift. I was 17 years old and my boyfriend showed up with a Panda Bear dressed in a referee shirt and a candy bar that he obviously picked up at a gas station on the way over. He gave me the gift and I was so upset, I broke up with him that night. Now I am not the kind that expects diamonds or something expensive, but I do expect you to put some thought into it.
Valentine’s Day is only 14 days away and you want to make sure you don’t forget about it this year! Take some time to really think about something that your girl will love. Something that is personal and meaningful. Consider inside jokes you may have, a romantic memory, a favorite song. Put some meaning into your gift. Girls like the thought behind the gift almost as much as ( if not more than) the gift itself. If you’re having a hard time getting some ideas, consider these:
What comes to mind when you hear the word gadget? Some of you may be thinking of the different kitchen gadgets you have that help with chopping, mixing, blending, mincing, grinding, slicing or cooking. Some of you, including myself, may be thinking about the 1980’s cartoon series Inspector Gadget. I have very fond memories watching that show as a kid, and have even watched it recently with my 5 year daughter. Although I love great kitchen gadgets and watching an awesome retro cartoon show, I’m here to talk about electronic gadgets that the men in your life may be interested in.
It seems like the hardest people to shop for are the men in our lives, Husbands, Brothers, Fathers, Grandpas. When asked what they want, they don’t have an answer (or it is lame, like a pair of socks or a tie). They seem to have everything and what can you get someone who has everything?
Well I did a little research to find some ideas and shops that could be your answer to this very dilemma.
Have you ever heard of Vista Print? I hadn’t until a few minutes ago when I was searching couponbuzz for some new Valentine’s Day ideas. I saw a coupon that said “50% off personalized photo gifts” so I thought I might check it out. As I was looking at the things I could make, I couldn’t believe the great prices they had. Some of the items you could even make for FREE. I was a little skeptical so I tried it out for myself.
I am the lucky one who gets to see sales before they happen as a buzz guide at couponbuzz.com!! I just got through entering some promotions coming up for Charlotte Russe and there will be some good ones!! They are having a Sweetheart 7 day sale in honor of Valentine’s Day with something different each day like buy one get one shoes for $10. The sale will run through Valentine’s Day, so starting on the 7th of February, check out Charlotte Russe on couponbuzz.com to get all the deals and steals.
I love Buy.com and am very lucky since I do the promotions for them each week so I always get a first look at what deals they are running. Besides the fact that there are monthly coupons, there are also often great deals on particular items. When I saw this one for earrings, I immediately thought of Valentine’s Day and these poor, clueless men that never know what to get.
