Roses are red, chocolates are brown, this Valentine’s Day, don’t let her down. Ok, so that might not be the most original poem, but you get the point. Like most guys, you probably think Valentine’s Day is somewhat lame and rightfully so. Chances are most women agree with you but that doesn’t mean you’re allowed to be ignorantly bliss towards cupid’s arrow. You see, even if she agrees that Saint Valentine is a sorry excuse used to sell more red velvet cupcakes, she secretly wants you to be that cringy rom-com guy that shows up with flowers or buys her some sexy lingerie, and trust us, you will reap the benefits.
It’s a day to celebrate love, passion and romance and although technically yes, it should be celebrated every other day of the year too, life gets in the way and we often forget to show endearing gestures towards our better halves. So this year, take Valentine’s Day, embrace it, have fun with it and even if you’re single, use it as a confidence booster to finally ask that girl out. We’ve compiled the ultimate Valentine’s Day gift guide to help you take the guess-work out of gift-giving. So go on, drown her in love and shower her with gifts. Afterall, there’s no better way to show your affection.
