Don’t say we don’t help out. Valentine’s Day Ideas Broke Or Ballin’
We hate Valentine’s Day. It’s a fake holiday. And if you are such a shitty boyfriend that you can only get it together one day of the year, then you don’t deserve the hummer you’re hoping she gets you.
However, we did think of a few things that work on any day of the year, even this one.
We’re all over this new spot that just opened in Yorkville called, MoRoCo Chocolat. It’s the most opulent, organic, chocolate haven ever to be created. MoRoCo is like the Tiffany’s of chocolate eateries. The meal menus are nothing to write home about, but the high tea service is over the top. You wanna get off easy and take your girl somewhere cool, this is your jam right here.
We found this on the Cool Hunter and we drooled right away. It’s a plain looking ring made by artist Yoon Jun Yun, but with a twist because it leaves a message imprinted on the wearer’s finger. The samples say dorky stuff like, “marry me”, but we’d special order something funny. Like an inside joke. Or instead of “marry me”, we’d put Mrs. Blank. Just punch it up a bit. Either way, this is pretty high on the awwww chick meter.
Best Gift For Him
If you really really want to go all out, then get him a lap dance. From you. Jessica, an instructor at pole-dancing studio, Downtown Aradia Fitness is an expert in how to give him a lap dance and just generally be a sexy tease for your man on Valentine’s Day. Not for nothing, but we did something like this with a Blow Job Class through Come As You Are once, and it was marry-me level good for the men in our lives. P.s. it was a really fun day with all kinds of female bonding, funny stories and barrels of laughs. So it’s like a bonus round.
Cooking is one of the best ways to do something for your lover. If you suck at cooking, you can order their favourite dinner, set the table, get a movie. Doesn’t take much to woo a hard-working woman, trust us. Or, you can learn to cook her favourite meal from her best friend/family member. OR, and this is a real special, you are the best guy ever kind of gift: you could take some cooking classes on the sly and then prepare it for her on the night of. George Brown has a whole bunch of great one-day classes that you can pay to learn.
On The Cheap
If you don’t have much of a budget it’s hard for us to tell you what to do because no budget requires all kinds of imagination. The best gifts are moments. Creating a really good moment, is going to take a lot of personalization that we can’t give you here. But here’s a couple that we would love, tailored to our individual personalities of course.
It’s an old one but a good one if you’re willing to go all the way with it. Get some good crd stock and make her some coupons saying things like, “Foot Massage”, and “Free Car Wash”. The thing about these cards is that she can use them whenever she wants. The proof is in the pudding so to speak, so follow through boys.
Oh the mixtape, how we love you for all occasions. Mixtapes are one of the ballin’ moves we pull around here all the time. You can make it super cheese or you can make it really funny. You can fill it with all the songs that you two have enjoyed together. Then put that sucker on while you make her dinner. After, you can put on the slow jam b-sides and have a bath and hit the sack. That’s if you choose the double disc option (which we recommend highly). She will keep it, gloat about it, and listen to it on the constant. You win! Hummers for everyone!
