Basically the Best Bro Valentine's Gifts from COOL Girlfriends



I'm not even sure Valentine's Day is a day where dudes get gifts... (can someone clarify here)??? Because all girls know the real holiday for men is March 14th!  {if you don't - to the goog}  And even THAT isn't a real "gifting" holiday for men.  That's why I've kept it simple and basic.  Stick to the 3 B's and you won't blow the budget.   

                 

Gentlemen... this one's for you....

Listen bro, I've literally given you the step by step guide on how to NAIL VDay like a pro!  Champagne or wine, flowers and chocolate, even cupcakes... all basics that are in the safe zone!  Hand written cards and sharing those dreaded "feelings" are where it's at!  I mean Noah wrote Allie 365 love letters {the Notebook} I think you can write 1!  I love you jewelry  {read Kate Spade bracelets above} or even customized jewelry from lat/long, or something with initials on it get major bonus points! You're. Welcome.






Gifts are taken care of (phew) now onto what will you do? ... 

Going out: sometimes we want the full sha-bang... The wine, the roses, and the four course meal. If that's the case start dropping hints to your man now. As reservation for Valentine’s Day on a Saturday night will fill up. First things first, if you are expecting to be taken out to dinner (like duh) START REMINDING HIM NOW THAT VALENTINES DAY is even a day. Most guys don't think about these things (or anything) until we subtly remind them especially if you want your guy to take you somewhere that uses linen table clothes!

The hints you need to drop about going out depend on what you have your heart set on doing? A great option is going to drinks first and a later dinner. This option beats the rush, and the awkwardness of all the couples that ran out of topics of conversation 35 minutes ago; while you and your guy make-out in the corner and spoon feed one another.
Another great option for Valentine’s Day is eating small meals at a few places, Ya know a classy version of bar hopping because there is food involved.  

Staying in : whether the reason to stay in is to avoid the cold, the crowds or just want to spend some more intimate time together. Staying in on Valentine's Day is always an amazing option! With the Oscars coming up, why not plan to watch some of the nominees on-demand? And cook your man his favorite meal or even better make it together. Below I've linked some easy love inspired meals, and desserts!

Chocolate Body Paint because why not...


Or there is always Chinese and whip cream lingerie as dessert. (As long as you get naked, he's going to consider that a gift. Bc it is and every girl should know how to make it so download the recipe for a later date.)


Now let's get to the real Meat of this... Single Ladies let's face it, being single on Valentine's Day is the best day of the year. It's guaranteed that every guy out is single as well. (Unless he's literally the biggest asshole God created, but let's hope he's wearing a tag that says that) So ladies put on a sexy outfit, a smile and prepare to be purchased drinks by many a handsome man tonight, because the bar scene will be crawling with singles. 


The Important part, what's a Girl to wear?


The Perfect Valentine's Outfit



If you can't tell I'm a HUGE HUGE HUGE fan of black and white!  I'm one to start with basics and keep the details in my accessories!  Snake skin, animal prints, red, crimson, burgundy, pink, are all great shades to stay in!  Spice it up!  Mix lace and leather or throw on a furry jacket to stay warm!


What to wear to work?  Don't worry I got you covered!
The Perfect V-Day Outfit



Oh and don't forget the wrapping paper!  Paper Source is one of my favorites!

Ok... so you're one of those ... who sits around HATING VDAY because you are single or just broke up with your boyfriend.... 


Don't worry I got you too!  Check out Packed Party and send yourself or your bestie a "Be Mine, K?", "Pity Party", or "You Don't Need Him Anyway!"  How fun right!  Then head to the bar for the Anti V-Day parties and look on the plus side... everyone is single!!!  




Let's summarize.... if you want be taken out, given gifts and spend some quality time with your guy, start mentioning V-Day now. My single PIC’s start primping and prepping for what is the best single day of the year… Mmk. ;)  So, go out have a great time and report back.
