Once Again Valentine's Day

Once Again Valentine’s Day

So, once again it’s Valentine’s Day, the consumption-based holiday that “enjoys” the most ambivalence from the American people. I’m not a big fan of it myself, but thinking outside the box of chocolates does make this day of enforced trappings of romance more palatable. Case in point – here’s 48 examples of better gifts for couples than candy and flowers. 😉

Valentine’s Day 2023

Well, it’s Valentine’s Day again. Not my favorite created holiday and not the favorite of most men and, I’m guessing, a fair number of women. Still though, here’s 45 beauties to help you maintain the fantasy.

Friends With Benefits


Friends With Benefits – A Valentine’s Alternative
(Click to Enlarge)

Friends, Reader, Countrymen – with Valentine’s Day around the corner, here’s a small bit of advice. Don’t let the perfect become the enemy of the good. A Valentine’s Day night with a Friend with Benefits is better than one spent alone or with some desperate, hookup partner. True, it’s not as good as having a “proper,” romantic partner on Valentine’s Day, but a Friend with Benefits is a relationship partner, therefor both good enough and far less stressful than the norm on this upcoming holiday.

Pedantic Note: The yellow roses with some red-blushed one amongst them are a “hat tip” to one variant of the Floriography of Victorian times in which yellow roses were for friendship and red ones for romantic interests. 😉

So, 2022's Valentine's Day

So, it’s Valentine’s Day again and I’m thinking that 2022’s iteration of this equally loved, hated, and feared holiday will be a bit more stressful than most – though NOT, perhaps, as bad as 2021’s.

2022’s Valentine’s Day Gifts

So, I guess you should try to make the best of it with what and who’s available to you and don’t get too down if you’re alone on this oddly stressful holiday.

Valentine’s Day 2021

Valentine’s Day 2021 – It’ll Probably Be Wee A Bit Different This Time

Admittedly, Valentine’s Day has never been a holiday that I was particularly fond of. Yet, even I admit that, with the ‘Rona and all the resultant, Democrat-invoked issues surrounding the disease, this year’s Valentine’s Day is going to a wee bit different and less commercialized than most previous ones.

So, here’s some inspiration for a simpler, stay-at-home celebration of this holiday. 😉 Really! Some chocolates and some lingerie delivered to your home, and the right attitude are all you need.
