Or as I like to think of it, “Cate’s birthday”

Tuesday, February 13th, 2007 | Fun With Teh Intarweb

Well, Valentine’s Day is almost upon us again. I get the whole “sharing of affection” sentiment, but it’s such a crass, commercial holiday that you can’t help but hate it. I can’t decide if the day is worse when you’re single and being beaten over the head with implications that your life is a failure because you don’t have that special someone to fawn over you, or when you’re part of a couple and have to deal with all that pressure to do up the holiday. Luckily, this year I’ll be spending the evening at a hockey game, watching large men punch each other and hit a little rubber disk around the ice. Absolutely no Valentine’s pressure in that situation. I’ll also take a moment out of the day to wish Miss Cate a very happy birthday, ‘coz that’s really what the day’s all about. (Right, Cate?)

But for those of you who will be buying your significant other gifties and figuring out the best purchase to say “I love you to bits, really I do”, here’s a list of Valentine’s gifts you should avoid.

Or you could follow this simple guide to finding the perfect Valentine’s Day gift. Your choice.
