Reuters reports that millions buy Valentine gifts for themselves. Rather than feel lonely and unloved on February 14, 8 million Americans admit to sending themselves gifts, according to a new survey. The article continues shattering illusions about the romantic nature of the day by pointing out that a telephone poll of a 1,000 Americans found rampant discrepancies between the gifts women would like to receive and what men are buying them. Editorial note: It doesn't mention any figures regarding unfulfilled male expectations. The article does point out that 6 million people have broken up on Valentine's Day (there was no citation of survey methodology here either).
All that aside, I have been fantasizing about gifts I might give myself: that Nelson Sunflower Clock I've wanted for the past three years would make an awfully sweet present.
I've also been thinking about a note I may like to read. It wouldn't be too sappy, just some simple thoughts on all of my appreciation of me. What would you give you? You have a week to decide.
