Valentine's Day is just around the corner! While Kyle and I don't celebrate the occasion, I'm always one to have a wish list ready and willing to be fulfilled. ;) No kidding, I have a note in my phone where I keep a running list of things I'm neeeeeeeding. My wish list legitimately helps me to minimize my impulse purchases and spend my "play money" only on things from that list. Give the wish list note a whirl, let me know. Ok, I got off topic. Back to Valentine's Day...
A couple of years ago I admitted that I'm terribly awkward when it comes to gift giving. When Kyle and I do exchange gifts we agree on a budget and trade wish lists. Romantic, right? The gift chosen from said list is a surprise, but that's about it. We like to keep the free thinking to a minimum and the expectations crystal clear. When it comes to gifting friends and loved ones who aren't Kyle or my children, I try my darndest to make simple, classic and bulletproof selections-- you know, to minimize the awkward. ;)
Whether she be your wife, paramour, gal pal, bestie (non-romantic girl friend words are tough), or mama, there's bound to be something on this list she'll love. At the very least, this should get your gift idea juices flowin'.

Ok, so perfume. Unless you know the exact fragrance she wants, this one can be tough. I can however make a few suggestions for you to have the best shot at hitting a fragrance home run.
- Grab a more classic fragrance by heavy hitters such as Chanel or Dior For fun twist on those more timeless scents, check out Chance & Miss Dior.
- Go for a best seller like Flowerbomb or Candy.
- Just buy her this.
Tickets are the way to go if there is a concert or sporting event (or play, I guess, if that's her thing...) she's been dying to go to. Plus, you get to go too which may or may not make this a mutually beneficial gift. ;)
Alcohol and alcohol consuming accessories (ie, this dot shaker, a personalized or funny glass) are always a good idea, aren't they?! Unless she's pregnant or something, but you should know that ahead of time... ;) Booze can really be classed up or down depending on your situation making it an excellent Valentine's Day option.
And that about does it for my gift ideas. What are you thinking?
