Kevin Hellriegel's Blog of Worthless Advice

The only blog that you really want to read…or ignore.

Oh, by the way, Valentine’s Day is tomorrow.


So even if you have been married a few months, a few years, or a few decades, you should get the spouse an expensive gift to show your true love. At least every time I purchase a Valentine’s Day card, I feel like I’m buying a very expensive gift. Those cards are expensive. 

However, if I don’t buy the card, I look like an insensitive jerk. Ah, well played Greeting Card company, well planned. You know even if my wife says “you don’t need to buy me anything, honey” that I’d be a fool to listen to her.  Because if I don’t buy that expensive card, I’m the husband that “forgot” about Valentine’s Day. My love is only shown through a pricey greeting card’s well polished verse of undying love, gratitude, and admiration.

Oh, and let’s not forgot about what sentiment we need to profess in this greeting card. If we go with the funny card and our spouse wakes up in a bad mood, we look like someone that doesn’t take our love seriously. But if we go with the seriously one and we are known for our funny nature, we are guilty of not being concerned about our choice of Valentine’s Day cards.   We picked a serious card because we didn’t care enough to look through the 863 different cards available.

I like the funny ones but depending on the mood of your spouse (on Valentine’s Day morning), you are risking a day…a week…a month…years of how you were an insensitive dope who chose the wrong Valentine card.

Yeah, so good luck with your card choice…choose wisely.

    Kevin, you are so on point with this one. The wife and I once got in one heckuva fight some years ago, centered around my assertion that gift-giving is an impossible scenario for men towards the woman they each love. My premise was that at each and every observance (Valentine’s Day, Birthday, Christmas, and Anniversary being the Big Four), despite all assertions to the contrary, the man is expected to out-do the previous observance’s gift in terms of value and showmanship, and that this is an impossible and ultimately self-defeating formula. I’m elated to say she finally came to see it my way, but not before 12 rounds.
