Do Not Want For Valentine’s Day: A Starbucks Gift Card Courtesy Of Facebook

Just a friendly reminder to all of you lovers out there that not every  kind of gift is appropriate for the Valentine’s Day holiday. This Facebook suggestion was sent to me by an engaged friend of mine. Really, Facebook? The best you can do is suggest that a woman “surprise” her fiancé with a Starbucks gift card this Valentine’s Day? Nothing against Starbucks — or coffee even — I’m a caffeine addict. But if I had a special someone and he surprised me with a Starbucks gift card, that would be, well, odd. Add this to the list of V-Day presents that will not get you laid. Oh, and “the gift of cancer screening.” It’s a real thing. I got a PR email about it. Not OK.
