Résumé

Valentine Commercialism

Anodizing consumer electronics varying shades of pink does not make them any more romantic as gifts. This is even true for iPods.

Here’s the range:

  • Just friends — cheesy card (bonus points if it’s from one of those elementary school set boxes, and/or contains a Fun Dip candy treat)
  • More than “” — Chocolate
  • Sucking up — Chocolate Flowers
  • Extra-special Day and/or you’re loaded — Jewelry

Note the lack of cell phones and other gizmos on the list. There may be instances when the above guidelines do not apply, but giving a Magenta Blackberry Pearl seems a little messed-up on such an occasion.
