Well hot dang. It’s almost Valentine’s Day. Time to go out and buy your sweetie something he/she will almost certainly treasure for all of five minutes.

Guys, if your beloved is anything like mine she sometimes wears pants, sometimes skirts. And you know how long it takes her to get ready in the morning- “do these pants go with this blouse or should I wear a skirt?” “It’s a little too warm for pants but I might feel chilly in a skirt.”
Well, why not solve her dressing dilemma by spending $780 on skants- a garment that is described as “a skirt/pant conglom” AND amazingly doesn’t match anything. I promise nothing will get your gal’s motor running quite like these “skants”.
I know economic times are kind of tough and $780 sounds like a lot for a pair of skants, so I’m going to give you gentlemen an inside tip- just give her an ugly sweater and tell her to put her legs in the sleeves. The look is the same-- Hot Hot Hot!
I’m not going to suggest you purchase such cards, and frankly I wouldn’t know where to go about doing so- but I do know where you can find playing cards that would make the many great card games just that much better. For $4.99 at ThinkGeek will send you “The Ladies of Star Wars” playing cards. I really can’t think of a guy that this isn’t a great gift for. Oh, and gold bikini Leah is the Queen of Hearts. Wowza!
Finally, let’s face it. Despite my bravado at the opening, most guys, myself included, are probably going to get their gals roses for Valentine’s Day. But before you plunk down a lot of money on flowers that, no matter how lovely, are eventually going to desiccate and be tossed why not at least consider a more sustainable alternative? Say... hmm… I don’t know… maybe roses made out of elephant poop? What girl wouldn’t swoon over receiving elephant poop roses? I know mine will!
While I think most of us feel that Valentine’s Day is a holiday created by the floral, confection, and greeting card industries I know must of us also feel that we need to share some kind of gift with our beloved on February 14th. I promise that if you select a gift off of this list you and your loved one will have an unforgettable Valentine’s Day while also telling the powerful flower, candy, and card cartels to stuff it.
