in the red
In case you haven’t consulted your calendar of late (“late” being the operative word), it’s February 12th…which means February 14th is just two days away. So is the conventional purchase of marked-up-just-for-the-holiday red roses. (Note: Though it may seem economically tempting to do so, it’s not cool to buy them on Tuesday, no matter how drastically the price plummets.)
Figuring that there’s got to be a rosier way to spend money on your honey, I searched for a few alternatives that a) fall into the $50-and-under range, and b) can be procured, for the most part, by jumping into your car “to run a quick errand.”
Chocolates, wine, perfume–it’s all good. But just so we’re clear: I wouldn’t actually MIND if someone gave me real roses for Valentine’s Day. What about you? Tell us about your most memorable Valentine’s Day gift thus far….
