Good Idea

On Saturday I heard one of the worst commercial promises. The announcer said something like "your loved one will think you spent hours picking out this gift". Hours to pick out something that they were selling. The announcer said that they would carefully gift wrap and the presentation itself would be breath taking.

Does this loved one not listen to the radio or watch television? Because if not, then yeah, this loved one would think that you carefully and wrapped this gift in a breath taking manner. But if the do listen to the radio or watch television, then your gift just ends up looking cheesy.

So did anyone get anything good for Valentine's Day? Did you get a gift you won't forget, or one that was marketed so that you'd think she/he spent many hours picking out this perfect token of affection?
