Valentine's Day is one of those holidays that I do kind of agree that it was invented by the greeting card companies in order to sell more cards, candy, flowers, etc.  And it sometimes seems a bit unnecessary.  Pressure... I'm tellin' ya, PRESSURE to do the right thing.  And what exactly is that, anyway?  And what are you supposed to get?  I actually think that being a guy in this situation is easier than being a woman.  Everything seems to be geared towards male to female gifts.  BUT how about this little gem...

MEAT!  Otherwise known as MANCRATES.  Sounds perfect, doesn't it?  It's a heart- like what you would normally candy in, only it has a bunch of different meats in the container.  Also- there is a salami bouquet instead of flowers.  This is the perfect gift!  Well, unless of course your significant other is a vegetarian.  But I'm sure there is an option for that too.

Valentine's day- DONE!  You're welcome.
