My husband knows better than to buy me a box of grocery store chocolates and flowers for Valentine’s Day. How unthoughtful and unoriginal! He would be a dead man.
Have you seen the commercials on television for that big hunka love teddy bear? Oh. My. Goodness. If you get one of those for Valentine’s day ladies, dump him immediately! (Joking! Sorta…) “You wanna’ score big points with your Valentine?” Seriously?! *gag*
It really amazes me how horrid Valentine’s Day commercials are this year and the things they try to get men to buy for their women. Personally, I’d rather get a new vacuum or a Vitamix for Valentine’s Day than a stupid “Hoodie Footie”. Their slogan is “She’ll cozy right up to you!”. Really?!!! How stupid do they think men are?! And more importantly, how shallow do they think WE are?
If you need top drop a hint to your significant other on what he should get you for Valentine’s Day so he won’t fall for one of those horrendous commercials, just “LIKE” or share this post on Facebook! (We won’t tell!)
Here are 3 Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas That Don’t Suck!
1. Bejeweled Jar of Vaseline Lip Therapy Rosy Lips
Everyone should have a little jar of Vaseline on hand at all times. But did you know that Vaseline® has a new product just fir lips? Lip Therapy® Rosy Lips deeply moisturizes for soft, rose-tinted lips. It has a light rose scent with a hint of vanilla. Protect and relieve those dry and dull chapped lips, while locking in moisture to help them heal. Plus it leaves a sheer pink tint to lips that looks natural!
It’s available for $2.29 at food, drug, and mass retailers, nationwide. Course a $2 jar of Vaseline doesn’t make a great Valentine’s Day gift, but what about if it was studded with jewels?!
Check this out….
Vaseline has created a limited-edition Lip Therapy Rosy Lips jar adorned with fine European crystals and a heart on the lid that is totally adorable!

2. Valerie Confections
Okay so if you like chocolates and other sweet confections, then you are going to love Valerie Confections. Their amazing Rose Petal Petits Fours were featured on Food Network’s The Best Thing I Ever Ate and would make a delightful gift.
Each rose petal petit four contains 4 layers of delicate vanilla bean cake, alternating with a rose petal passion fruit ganache, and covered in white chocolate. Oh my goodness, can you even imagine? Is your mouth watering yet? Atop each petit four is a single candied rose petal and these yummy little confections are presented in an ivory corduroy-embossed box tied with a beautiful rose colored ribbon.

3. Forever Young Wine
Forget the flowers… get a bottle of Forever Young Wine. Their Malbec Reserva and Sauvignon Blanc would both make a wonderful Valentine’s Day gift.
Turn this Valentine’s Day into an intimate dinner date at home with a flavorful Malbec Reserva and or Sauvignon Blanc. Forever Young Wine tastes superb and is the perfect gift for your sweetie.
