Valentine's Day is only a week or so away, dudes. Your restaurant reservations should be made. Your flowers ordered.
Or, more likely, it's going to take you by surprise again this year, and you won't act until you wonder why there's all these people pulling up to a tent in a Kroger's parking lot buying flowers.
All we can tell you is, don't panic too much. In other words, don't get anything from our collection of the 14 Lamest Valentine's Day gifts.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
