Please note the complete and utter sarcasm hidden in the latter statement. And for those unfortunate people who are actually bothering to read this email I suggest you refrain from judge me and accusing me of being basically bitter.
I don't know how I control myself from the immense excitement. If there was ever an occasion during the year that appears overwhelmingly pleasant, yet in actual fact just a sordid excuse for a day, it would be Valentines day.
Most people can see right through a thoughtless gift so don't be afraid to get creative with your Valentine's Day gift-giving this year.

I'm a sucker for fresh flowers, so I'd never say no to those.

— and receiving them as a Valentine's Day gift just means I have to scour my apartment for an extra vase but whatever. I've certainly never been annoyed at receiving a bouquet of flowers on Valentine's Day, or any other day for that matter, because it's nice to know that someone saw them and thought of me.
Curious to know how other women felt about this Valentine's Day gift ritual, I asked seven women if they actually like getting flowers and chocolates for Valentine's Day. If you want to do something nice, do it whenever you feel the need to do so, not just on a certain day when it's "expected".
