“It’s not a romantic gift if you can plug it in.” These were the wise words of my very close friend when we were discussing gift giving for Valentine’s Day. She speaks from experience. Her husband once gave her a fire extinguisher as a gift. I am not kidding. As you can imagine, that gift didn’t go over very well. He’s still in her bad books for that one.
