Getting Your Girl A Vacuum For Valentine’s Day Sucks

SAN FRANCISCO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Getting your girl a vacuum for Valentine’s Day (Feb. 14) sucks.

Online shopping site has just released its “Worst Valentine’s Day Gifts” list for 2008, and, according to General Manager Joe Morris, getting your girl a vacuum, a bathroom scale, or a push-up bra will definitely land you in the doghouse.

Morris says, “These gifts are insulting, send the wrong message, and show that it’s about you, not her.”

Other poor Valentine’s purchases include a CD by the band My Bloody Valentine, a power drill, and dandruff shampoo, which, Morris says, “will definitely be taken the wrong way.”

Instead of the traditional, tacky treats like chocolates and flowers, Morris suggests guys get their gals a digital camera, a spa package, tickets to Cirque du Soleil, or an iPod.

He says, “Plan ahead and be thoughtful. You don’t want to be ‘that guy’ who makes a Valentine’s Day gift-giving mistake.”
