Worst Valentine's Day Gifts
By Jennifer Klein, President

Hey honey, I love you. Here's a Nordic Trak. Happy Valentine's Day.

When it comes to romancing their partner, it's clear that cupid's arrows certainly can miss their mark. There are a lot of unromantic people, losers in the love category, who believe exercise equipment or housewares make appropriate Valentine's Day gifts.

In a recent survey on, we posed the question: What is the least romantic gift you've received on Valentine's Day? Here are the top three winners (or losers):


  • Gold Heart: Roses, with a card for another woman!
  • Silver Heart: A Nordic Trac. This person states, "I am not sure if the message was your fat or not, but let's just say I was not thrilled."
  • Bronze Heart: A book on making love. "Sounds good but it sure can make a gal insecure," says an anonymous voter.


Most of the runner-ups were household appliances and tools. What is this fascination for appliances? Ironically, a recent study revealed that the number of clean homes are declining due to women in the workforce. Although these gifts are practical, they are, nonetheless, unromantic.  Runner-ups include the following:

  • A vacuum
  • A blender
  • Cleaning supplies
  • A Black & Decker screwdriver
  • A power steering hose
  • A toaster
  • A broom
  • I was asked the question: "So how do we end this? A handshake or a high five?"
  • Divorce Court. (You'd think the judge would schedule other types of cases for that day, right?)
  • A pear. Yes! A damn pear! I wanted a pear shaped diamond. But, I got.. an actual pear!!
