A pre-Valentine’s Day warning to lovers who want to stay in love post February 14–don’t try this at home: Landlordrocknyc’s short but effective list of really, really bad VD gift ideas.
The Number One Bad Idea For Valentine’s Day: A trinket from any jewelry store with a cheesy, singing commercial. Warning, this “Every Kiss Begins With Kay” spoof spot has a four-letter word that doesn’t begin with Kay but ya gotta love the “Every Divorce Begins With Kay” lyric at the end.
More bad ideas:
A Six Foot Tall Teddy Beargram–Common kiddies. Have you seen the size of most NY apartments? Even if she’s still enough of an ingenue (or a weird older chick) who collects stuffed critters, this one is not cute or romantic.
More Valentine’s don’ts:
Roses from the corner deli. Trust me, they will never open or last.
Chocolates in a heart-shaped box from Duane Reade.
A ‘pashmina’ shawl from a NY street vendor.
Rememer, even if it’s really last minute, you’ll always have Paris–meaning French perfume, champagne or an Hermes scarf in that
hot orange box and shopping bag will always work.
