Should Women Give Valentine’s Day Gifts? [POLL]
Chocolate, candy, flowers — it’s the holy triumvirate of Valentine’s Day gift-giving for men looking to show the women in their lives how much they mean to them.
Should it work the other way, though? While we’re inundated with images of men giving presents on February 14, including the Holy Grail of them all — the engagement ring — we never think much about what women should give men. Is that because Valentine’s Day is a holiday traditionally geared toward women or do men simply not care? After all, a man doesn’t usually huddle with his guy friends and gab about how he hopes his girlfriend got him a bouquet of roses or a box of Lindt truffles.
Still, everyone likes getting presents, right? Whether it’s tickets to see their favorite team or a six-pack of (insert beer name here ___________), men would probably be fired up for Valentine’s Day if those gifts were coming their way.
So, what do you think? Should giving gifts work both ways on this most romantic of holidays or should it remain focused on women?
