Top Ten, Top 10, Top X, Valentine's Day gifts with warnings and advice
Examiner.com ^ | Feb. 12, 2010 | Réne Girard

Posted on 02/12/2010 8:26:34 AM PST by RGirard

Valentine's Day is almost upon us and men you know what that means - the pressure is on. That's why I have created a Top Ten, Top 10, Top X, list of Valentine's day gifts that you may or may not want to purchase for that special lady in your life, along with some warnings and advice you may want to heed ...

Your woman may deserve the absolute very best, or she may deserve a sock in the mouth (rolled and inserted for the relief of mankind) even though you are too much of a gentleman to go there ...

It is unfortunate that gift-giving is not easier on men. Unless your special someone has been very clear and specific, you run the risk of messing up, but hopefully she will not hold it against you ...

For the life of me, I can’t get to the second page of the article. I see # 1 is “flowers”, and that’s it.

You hit that link and it opens up the flowers part of the article in a new window, and at the bottom of that is another link to the next one, which also opens in a new window, at which point I decided the site is annoying.

I have had much experience in my life watching men receive gifts and complaining "Why did you spend money on that. I don't need it."

I was raised to receive a gift graciously and thank the giver. I can always take it back or give it away later. I just don't understand anyone getting mad because they don't like their gift. Some people need to grow up.

that’s odd ... toward the bottom of the page is the link for Candy, and it worked for me ... over to the left is a picture with a link for it as well, or you can click “All Articles”

Best Valentine’s Day give my husband gave me was last year; a .410 over under Beretta. :)

How about when my ex-husband gave me diamond earrings for a Mother’s Day (we split in August that year), but we could not afford to buy new shoes for the kids due to his out-of-control spending habits? I was mad.... (he got the jewelry store bill in the divorce; I kept the earrings).

I bet their is nothing that man could have done at that point that would have made you happy. You are probably well rid of him.

Yes. Each gift click opens in a new window with appropriate advertisements for that particular gift. Annoying to say the least.

I want a PS3 for Valentine’s day.
