Gooooood morning! Let me tell you right off that there’s a contest coming up later on that is nothing short of both nutritious and delicious. You don’t want to miss it, trust me.
I’ve had several readers ask lately what to get their fellas for Valentine’s Day, so I thought I’d offer up a few options.
Option 1 (Gadgets): This weekend the newly revamped Sharper Image site is offering $10 off $50+ with coupon code 10OFF50. Because you show me the guy who doesn’t like weird little gadgets, and I’ll show you… ummm… a freak of nature. Moving on!
Option 2 (Entertainment): It looks like there’s tons of Blu-rays for $10 or less at Amazon right now, so shop away. Nothing says love like “I got you that movie I hate because I know you love it. And with Blu-ray I can hate it in High Definition, even.”
Option 3 (Fitness): Among the great weekend deals at 6pm.com today is 60% or more off Reebok. Can you put a price on a fancy new pair of sneakers? Um, wait. I guess you can. But wouldn’t you rather put a lower price on it, and then act like you just loved him so darn much you went all out? There you go. Or if he’s a winter sports kind of guy, check out the Winter Clearance Sale at Altrec for gear.
Option 4 (Clothing): Maybe something new and spiffy to wear is the way to go. Let’s see; the Stock-Up Sale at Jos. A. Bank is going on right now—plenty of buy 2, get the second one some percentage off, buy 3, get the third one free types of deals on all kinds of clothes (both professional and casual). There’s a new free shipping code for Lands’ End out, too; just use code COMFORT with PIN 1144 through February 11th, 2010.
Option 5 (Zombies): You know I’m usually a die-hard Threadless fan (still am), but I’m having trouble ignoring the awesomeness of this zombie shirt from Tanga. Nothing says love like zombie battle.
That hopefully gives you a few ideas to check out. And, you know, zombies on the brain. Hee.
Hey, longtime reader here, first time commenter. I had to get that zombie shirt for my husband’s birthday. Awesome. Keep ’em coming.
I too could not resist the siren song of that zombie shirt.
That Zombie shirt is perfect for my brother’s birthday. Hope you made a few pennies on the sale.
Think I’ll go with the machete, it’s the lightest, and will hopefully keep zombies OFF my brain. 😉
Option 6: A complete set of Rex Stout’s Nero Wolfe novels from Craigslist. Perhaps the zombie shirt might have broader appeal?
Love the Zombie Shirt almost as much as the Oregon Trail “You Have Died from Dysentery” shirt.
