Welcome to the Power of Love Blog Hop!

Hello all! Welcome to The Power of Love Blog Hop! For many of you, it's still winter, so to warm up your Valentine's Day, I'm offering some heartwarming stories, and a chance to win some nifty prizes! Grab yourself a cup of cocoa, coffee, tea, whatever gives you that fuzzy, yummy feeling, and let's get started!

Ah, Valentine's Day. Love it or Loathe it, it's inescapable. Not even my fellas can get away from it. Personally, I'm a very low-key kinda gal. I prefer a cozy night in with some good food, great company, and a little fun. When it comes to Valentine's Day, I tend to approach it the way my character Trip from An Intrepid Trip to Love does: with caution, distrust, and one eye on the door, ready to make a break for it. Let me explain.

For my newsletter, I wrote a short story for my subscribers featuring characters they voted for. Trip won, so he and the love of his life, Boone, got their own Valentine's Day story. Like Trip, I was thinking of what sort of Valentine's Day gift Boone would like. I shopped around online, while Trip shopped around in his fictional greeting card stores. We browsed. And browsed. And browsed. And Oh. My. God. Well, Trip's horror reflects my own.

Aside the onslaught of merchandise, most places divide everything up into gifts for him, and gifts for her. The majority of gifts for her consisted of lingerie, roses, chocolate, jewelry, stuffed animals, and the racier gift like nipple tassels (O.o) or uh, edible underwear. The guys got jewelry, and underwear, sure, but they got iPods, and red Converse sneakers, and electronics, and strawberries dipped in chocolate made to look like footballs.

Now, I have nothing against chocolate (I live for it), and I wouldn't say no to some bling, but if I got a pair of red Converse sneakers from someone on Valentine's Day, I would be all over that. There's just so much stuff, it's overwhelming. On the plus side, there are some... disturbing gifts our there, which makes for not only entertaining viewing, but writing. Here are some interesting gifts I came across:

Sexy underwear doesn't do it for you? How about underwear for two?

UndiesForTwo

Or how about the Girlfriend Pillow?

Or for your lover of horror, how about this heart cake from Lil Vanilli?

Want to hold hands this winter, but those pesky gloves get in the way? Share a heart-shaped mitten!

If all else fails, nothing beats a good old fashioned greeting card.

Happy Valentine's Day!
