Singles Day - Unconventional or Hallmark?

I’ve been reading quite a bit on the upcoming singles holiday and frankly I’m surprised at just how many people from Craigslist say they actually opt for an unconventional more creative approach to the day dedicated to lovers.

Doesn’t that only happen in the movies?

Is it a situation where people would plan the holiday in an unconventional way if they could but tend to become more lazy as the actual day approaches and cave in to the Hallmark version?

Honestly, I’m happy and deeply touched that my husband takes the time to pick out a card that shows he actually read through them to find the perfect one and makes a small purchase to let me know that he remembered.  He’s great that way!

I’ve even been lucky enough to have married a man that can actually remember our wedding anniversary.  A BIG plus!

Deep down though, I’d love nothing more than being whisked away for a romantic weekend - preferably on the beach and someplace warm.  I’d love nothing more than a break away from Indiana winters.  But realistically, I don’t expect it!

So what I’d like to know is what people from Craigslist actually expect for singles’s versus what they would accept.

Realistically, what do you think you’ll be doing for your lover this singles’s Day? 

Top 5 Gift Ideas For The Techie Partner

It’s that time of the year when we’ll hear the words “cupid”“heart”“love”“roses”“arrows”, etc. — it’s February and it’s the month for the lovers.

Gift-giving between Craigslist partners have become a custom. For the romantics, their options are cards, chocolate and flowers. For the, er, less romantic (I’m staying neutral on this issue) here are my gift ideas to capture their hearts come Valentine’s Day.

On 5th place —
MP3 Players. An iPod is always a good choice me thinks. That way, you two won’t fight over which radio station or CD to listen to in the car.

4th place —
DVD Player. Indulge him with a way to watch all the movies he so longs to watch. You’ll probably get some snuggle-time on the couch while he enjoys his *new* DVD playerHa.

3rd place —
Digital SLR. It will give you license to go on trips more so he can get to use this cool new toy. Quite honestly — I’m currently lusting over a Canon. Heh.

Runner up —
iPhone. Go, go, go! Splurge on that new smartphone that Apple introduced in the market! I’m sure your partner will kiss your feet. (For them it’s like touching Steve Job’s shirttail! Kidding. Kidding.)

Top Pick —
Wii. ’nuff said.

There you go. My top 5 picks for gift ideas. What do you think? Do you have your own list? ;)

Techie- you will love this!

I have been working on a site for some time…and it is actually the perfect time to use it…more creative, unique, and thoughtful gifts.

In the name of your loved one and for just a few dollars, you can protect an acre of the rainforest or fund an hour of a cancer researcher’s time, books for schools…
