Oh Valentine's day. Thou scourge of lonely hearts everywhere. (Okay, I don't really feel that way about V-Day, it just was a really fun sentence to write!) I actually have a real soft spot for February 14th, mostly because of fond elementary school memories: paper bag mailboxes taped to our desks, pink frosted cupcakes, secret admirers around every corner. You know what I mean, right?
As a grown-up, however, it's been a while since I celebrated the big V. But if I were to pick up a little something for a fellow, I'd look for manly-man items with homegrown rock 'n' roll appeal. These are for the city boy who likes a jaunt to the country now and then, who is never without a quality pen, who appreciates the finer things but who isn't afraid of dirt under his nails. My kinda guy!
