It's VD Day in 2 days, there's no point in fighting it. I hate it too, I do, I don't know if you read my ranty, swear-ey post last year about Valentine's Day, click that and have a laugh at my weirdness.
Now that I've ranted it out of my system, I've learned you can't fight it. You can't fight City Hall, or marketing. Just do something for the love day, you guys. It doesn't have to suck, or be cliche or super expensive, just a little something to take it up a notch, *bam*
Add Emeril's spices to something you microwave maybe, I don't know.
Crack open some glow sticks, well adults probably prefer candles, whatever your scene.
Make an i-Tunes playlist, or whatever the hell the kids are doing now instead of mix tapes.
Adopt your own traditions, make it your own, whether you're in a relationship with another person or yourself, and that can be awesome if you romance yourself. Buy yourself flowers, candy, cook for yourself. Don't skimp, bro.
Whatever your relationship status, I suggest enjoying the day in the privacy of your own cozy home and not in an over-priced restaurant with starry eyed annoying new couples, or fighting shout-ey/pout-ey LTR's or anyone in between. Light some candles, do something a little extra. Use non-paper plates maybe. It's ONE DAY.
Binny's Beverage Depot (or whatever the name of the booze warehouse near you) has the right idea with these boozy e-cards. Stop in and get some amaretto, Bailey's, wine, whatever your poison. Also whatever your Valentine likes. Print out these cards for free, or use the ones below.
They have plenty of non-alcohol choices for every taste, if you like that sort of thing, or are currently pregnant, in which case: BETTER YOU THAN ME FOR ONCE. Oh, and uh, congratulations!
Here are some geeky e-cards to print out and add to your booze. Voila! A non-cliche romantical gift, and you're done.
