Valentines day is just around the corner (next Saturday to be exact). Somewhat of an overrated holiday and one I don’t usually celebrate (I’d prefer surprise flowers or chocolates on a random Tuesday)…but many of you will be hunting for the perfect gift and I’m here to help!
Fellas pay attention…here’s a tip to make your shopping a little easier. Get a business card and write the following things on the back: her ring size, her bra/panty size, and her shirt/pant size. Keep it in your wallet and wah-la when you need to get that personal gift you know what sizes to buy and she will be super impressed.
If I were you, I’d steer clear of the mall, especially Victoria’s Secret…although it is fun to see the deer-in-head-light look on all the guys’ faces trying to find something special (and sexy) for their lady…it really is best if you leave the lingerie buying up to her. Don’t you hear us complain how hard it is to find jeans, swimsuits, and bras? Why would you attempt this alone? All she really wants is to know that you cared enough to put a little effort into her gift. That’s it…and do try to be a little original. That doesn’t necessarily mean you need to spend a lot of money.
I suggest instead of buying the same red lingerie everyone else will be buying…head over to a local Lexington boutique (or online store) and pick her up something different and unique (ask for help…I promise the sales clerks don’t bite). Call a local florist now (not the day before) and see what they can pull together for you…please, please, please (I’m begging you) do not order from those online flower stores. For something sweet, stop by a local bakery or candy shop and put together a box of treats (National Provisions has amazing cookies, Wine and Market has macaroons, Caramanda’s has cupcakes, Old KY Chocolates for bourbon balls).
Don’t have a valentine? Go ahead with my moto and treat yo’ self!
