Many of us say we could care less about February 14, but when the day arrives and nothing comes to our desk via the delivery truck, or there are no cards in the mailbox, we still tend to feel a bit jilted. Admit it.
If you are bitterly single or recently single or still perusing craigslist "singles and stalking," here is the perfect gift guide to get someone's attention. If you are not single and love has gotten stale, here is the perfect gift guide to get some attention. If you are newly "not single" here is a gift guide of items that will keep their attention. And if you are sending something to yourself only to appear adored or for revenge factor, these items will definitely garner attention.
Candy, stuffed animals, jewelry, fine drink -- it's all here. All you have to do is order it.
