Valentines Day is a funny thing. Is it a made up holiday aimed at getting inside our pocket books, sure. Is it a female-centric holiday, of course. Is it an important holiday, you better believe it! If you don't think so then just try getting away without getting your wife/girlfriend something next year, I'll bet you'll change your tune.
Of course just like any holiday different people have different levels of excitement and expectations for Valentines Day, but it's a safe bet that most women would like some flowers come Feb 14th. My suggestion is that if you're going to get flowers, then get them delivered to her at work. Better yet, if you happen to be unemployed deliver them yourself.
I'm convinced that for women, getting flowers at work is the ultimate. It makes them feel loved, it let's all the other women in the office know that they are loved, and it makes that creepy guy from sales think twice before popping over for a quick chat.
Come to think of it, maybe Valentines Day is for guys too.
