Valentine Gift Suggestions - February 13, 2012
Advertisers have been flooding you with suggestions for holiday gifts, especially those old standards, chocolates and roses. But they never seem to get around to mentioning the negatives. Here, then, are some semi-unbiased comparisons . . . .
|A red cardboard heart containing Dove truffles.
||three pieces/220 calories
||A MRSP brick with a personalized Valentine's message.
|A five ounce Reese's chocolate & peanut butter heart
|One dozen long-stem red roses.
||Depends on how warm your sweetheart's house is and how much the flowers are fussed over. Roses usually last five days at most, but could last up to two weeks if the water is changed daily and the stems are cut daily so that they keep drinking up the fresh water.
||A contribution to the Mississippi River Sculpture Park in your sweetheart's honor to pay for a piece of the next statue in the park. The recipient of your gift will get a personal thank-you from Florence Bird.
