The Gentleman’s Guide to Winning Valentine’s Day

FB_VdayNewsletterValentine’s Day is just over a week away. She’s been looking forward to this for quite some time. You haven’t planned anything yet, even though she’s dropped 29 hints. Fear not, we have you covered.  We’ve recruited our Office Manger, Eileen,  to let you in on all the secrets – what they REALLY want.

Gentlemen. I’m going to simplify things for you. Here’s the foolproof way to finally be the hero on Valentine’s Day.

1. Get a Card. And write in it. Not just sign your name to a Hallmark card, but actually think of something sentimental and write it by hand. Bonus points if you make your own.

2. Flowers or Chocolate. Pretty simple, right. You don’t have to understand why we like flowers – we just do. So put together a decent bouquet or pick up some fresh chocolates. Neither should be purchased at the local 7-Eleven.

3. The Gift. Oh, you thought flowers was enough? Sorry, but not sorry. Here’s the good news: we’re not looking for something expensive, but rather something with a little thought behind it. The bad news: you have to put a little thought behind it. The easy-but-effective way out: Jewelry. Check out Alex Mika Jewelry for fun but affordable options.

4. The Loophole. Want to get out of purchasing physical items that you think have no meaning? Get creative, and plan something special for the two of you. Ditch the typical pre-fixe dinner and surprise her with a cooking class or hire a personal chef.
