Thinking ahead… for you!

Maybe because I’m writing this at 2AM, yes, AM!!! Or, maybe because my brain works like a blender on high speed with yogurt, berries and rocks in it… I got to thinking, which anyone who knows me will tell you is always interesting but slightly dangerous at the same time.

… it’s almost Valentine’s Day!! What am I going to buy Grandpa now? Didn’t we just get out of the Xmas buying debacle? Every year, we go through the same routine. “What do you want?”… “I don’t know, what do you want?” And in the end, we always buy our own gifts and don’t even try to act surprised. We each received what we wanted, no stress and we enjoy watching the small people over here tearing into the goods. They still believe and that makes it fun. That’s a gift in and of itself. But now we’re heading towards the romantic gift giving time of year where you’re supposed to put some actual thought and planning into the gifting process to show that special someone just how much you care. It’s in the planning aspect that makes our heart’s desire swoon, right?

So, I’m here to lend my services and help you out… and, it’s 2AM. The 5 year old Kung Foo Master / Karate Kid chopped me right out of bed and I am procrastinating doing actual ‘work’… I may as well lend my hand and take some of your leg work as my own so you can spend time doing the preparing aspect of the Lover’s Holiday… *hint*… soft music, pink themed setting with chocolate and alcohol, some flowery accents and a pony. Just trust me…

Anyways, back to the gifts… I’ve selected my top 5 gifts for your sweetie… I covered both genders. “‘Cuz I’m cool like ‘dat”… (I think that’s a song, but probably doesn’t fit in the ‘soft music’ category, so don’t add it to your V Day playlist while you’re handling the preparing aspect)

#5 – A Vacuum for her…

TCB for her man!

 Us girls just love a clean floor!  And guys, your lady will absolutely love you if you buy her a new vacuum.  Plus a nice efficient one will free up a bunch of time for her to do other things for you.

#4 Underwear for him…

Reeks of Smexy!

Regardless of what style he wears, ladies, we all know your man refuses to buy underwear until his old ones get so ratty they literally fall off.  It's a cry for help"¦buy him some  underwear.

#3 A blender for her…

It's a special occasion, make yourself one tonight too honey!

This is a great idea guys.  How else can she make you a nice kale and protein shake after working out or a margarita after a long hard day at work?

#2 FLOWERS!!! Just for him…

Water Cooler Hot Topic

Ladies, guys love getting flowers at work in the middle of the day when everyone is  there to see them.  And the memories will last long after the flowers are gone. Trust me on this.

And… drum roll please…

#1 A cookbook for her…

Squirrel Carbonara

Seriously, this is a real cookbook guys! And if it can help your lady love become a better cook, it’s a total win/win for both of you!

HAPPY SHOPPING!!!!

(And, if you have any suggestions for that perfect romantic evening, please, let us know!)
