What do you get a guy for Valentine’s Day?

Are we supposed to get them something AT ALL?!

Somehow, I feel like the answer should be yes. But I can’t figure out exactly what.

How about chocolates? Flowers? Teddy bears? Gift basket??

Everyone says “No” to any of these common V-day gifts that I suggest. “Those are for girls,” they always answer. Ok, so ignoring the double standards… what else can I get?! It’s not like I can go into a CVS and pick up a basket full of “somethings” and then check out, and then “Viola! Here you go, honey!”

So as a girl, should I just shrug and say, oh well, all the gifts are marketed towards gifting to women… so maybe I can play the “I didn’t know women were supposed to give guys things for V-day?” Maybe this holiday was more about guys being romantic and chivalric to women. And not vice versa? But I thought this was about celebrating love?

What would you do?

1. Stand on the theory that V-day is more when guys give pink and red gifts to girls. And girls don’t necessarily need to give gifts, they just have to participate in the celebratory efforts/activities.

2. Buy gifts (that are termed “girly”) for him.

3. Buy something similar to a Christmas or Birthday gift for him.

4. !?!?

  1. Listen if you really want to give him something that he will appreciate, buy lingerie that you know that he will like and wrap it up and give it to him and then tell him that you will model it for him.
