Listen Up Boys, err I Mean Men: How to Find the Perfect Gift for Your Valentine

valentines day sarcastic card love

Valentines day is only a month away and as much as you might dread this “holiday” (or not) your lady counterpart has already started hunting for her date-night dress and has upped the time she spends on the treadmill to get ready for all the See’s candy she’ll be consuming in the first half of February. I know, I know…you hate shopping for gifts and it’s just so hard to figure out what she wants. But listen, this is probably one of 3 nights (Valentines day, your birthday & July 4th…you do it for the troops)  you’re guaranteed to get lucky if you play your cards right, so you have to bring your A-game on Valentines day. Flowers and candy don’t cut it anymore, it’s 2012 for heaven’s sake!

Now here’s the part where I make your life easier. Say hello to:

All the girlies are signing up for Pinterest like Oprah told them to and guess what they’re doing on there, they’re posting all the things they could possibly want to own/do. What is Pinterest, you ask- Simple, it is a virtual pinboard. So your lady-love might be creating boards about how she wants to decorate her home, planning her wedding with you (yikes if you guys aren’t engaged already), making a wish list of things she’d like to own, listing all the books she wants to read, creating a Style Inspiration board, etc.

So if your significant other already has a Pinterest account, the hard part is over! All you have to do is find her on Pinterest and see what she likes and BOOM! Extra brownie points for being thoughtful and getting her something she really wants off of her Pinterest boards.

Ladies – Give the men in your life a break and create a wish lists for yourself on Pinterest. It’ll make both of you so much happier.

And if you would like a Pinterest invite (it’s invite only), email me at prettypleaseus {at} gmail {dot} com and I can send you one. Psssst…You can follow me on Pinterest here.

Disclosure: I got this idea from a friend of mine who is an evil genius great boyfriend!

    My girlfriend told me not to get anything for her for Valentines. She said she doesn’t need on day of gifts for me to show my love when I do everyday… Is that a test?

      LOL. Not sure if it’s a test but it’s a great opportunity to gain some brownie points. Definitely buy her something or do something for her. Even if she meant what she said, she’ll be super happy that you still made the effort. Doesn’t have to be big, just thoughtful. Good luck!
