Valentine's Day Gift Ideas: Does Every Kiss Begin with Kay?

Whether we like to admit it or not, every woman loves to receive flowers, chocolates, and gifts on Valentine's Day. And yes, we do have a soft spot for cheesy heart pendants.  Take the Jane Seymour "Open Hearts" necklace from Kay Jewelers for instance.  While the design is questionable and my husband and I laughed out loud at funny man Will Arnett's spoof on the necklace, I can't say I'd be unhappy to unwrap a similar heart shaped trinket.  Of course, I'd be more thrilled with a token of affection encased in a little blue box.

For years I watched my father shower my mother with overpriced fine jewelry she didn't need on Valentine's Day, and at the time I thought it was wasteful spending.  Now that I'm a grown-up, however, I kind of like the tradition of receiving a new trinket each year.

I still don't believe in overspending on V-Day gifts (or on anything for that matter).  So when it comes to romantic baubles it really is the effort and the thought that counts.  After some not so subtle prodding, last year my hubby gave me a pair of fashion stud earrings.  And I love them.

This year, however, I don't wear as much costume jewelry and I'm on a sterling silver, gold, and gemstone kick. Let's see if a certain someone can take the hint.
