Valentine's Day: it strikes fear into the hearts of kids with crushes and married-fifty-years types alike. Why? It's just a day... Okay, a day fraught with overblown expectations and way too many stereotypes. That's why, this year, we're presenting gift ideas that will really mean something to the recipient and show them that you appreciate them for them. Over the next few weeks, we'll be suggesting gifts for the special someone in your life, whether they're the cute coworker you lust over from afar, your BFF, your new sweetie pie, or the sweet schmuck you've lived with for three years.
The Sports Addict...His weekends are consumed by game after game - really, it doesn't matter what kind. You're pretty sure the television is as annoyed as you are by his constant "coaching" during the Big Game. And, although it smells like it came alive, lived a full and hearty life, then died and rotted in your closet, you would never dream of washing his Lucky Jersey (or socks, or *gulp* jockstrap).
Dream Big: The Philips Intelligent 3D 42-Inch WOW Display ($9000) is a crazy huge TV that uses WOWvx technology to create 3D images with no glasses. We're not even sure what else we can say about this one.
Doable: Get him a tough-guy card to show him that he's YOUR hero. And if you put a coupon in there... to, ahem, fulfill a little fantasy, be it a cheerleader in a teeny skirt or, say...a favor he doesn't have to repay, we're certain you'll have a happy camper when gametime's over, whether his team wins or loses.
