It seems that Valentine’s day divides the nation. Is it a daft day full of forced romantic sentiments or is it a great excuse to show off your love for someone?
Retailers seem to relish in the idea that men across the country will be desperate to buy a token of love for the lady in their life in the form of A) items of tiny red mesh underwear with or without accompanying suspenders B) heart shaped chocolates or C) a teddy bear with a heart on its chest. All these are fine gifts (if you are a practicing stripper, not watching your weight and are happy to receive presents as an adult which you also received when you were 5) but are these really the most wanted presents? Probably not, and as the Valentine’s haters would agree, this is just a ‘Hallmark day’ with no real meaning – if you love someone, you don’t need Valentine’s Day to show it, nor will teddy bears help get your message across any better.
On the flip side, whilst some prefer not to partake in the giving of soppy greeting cards, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the extra romance, presents and most of all spending time with that special someone on the 14th. Of course, Valentine’s Day is traditionally for those of us who are single and want to send a semi-anonymous sign of affection to someone admired from afar. How many of us still do this kind of thing in 2013 remains to be seen, but if Valentines day isn’t your thing then just enjoy time with your friends instead and why not buy yourself a little Valentines treat, something that you actually want… like shoes! 😉
How about these for a Valentine’s night out?
Hope you all enjoy Valentine’s Day, whatever you’re doing.
