    While we'd never complain (too loudly) about receiving flowers for Valentine's Day, there's also really nothing that says "lack of imagination" quite like a dozen long-stemmed red roses, most likely bought at the corner store on the way home. Of course, we all know by now that sometimes to get what you really want, you have to do some of the research for your sweetie, which is precisely what we've done right here.
