Valentine’s Day is marked by the increase in hues of pink and red, soppy heart-shaped treats, and believe it or not, break-ups. According to a Facebook study conducted by David McCandless and a report by Tres Sugar, each year the number of break-ups spikes from January all the way to Spring. To help you avoid getting kicked to the curb on cupid’s big day, we’ve taken the liberty of compiling a list of eGift cards to print that should ensure lovers’ bliss.
3 Gift Cards That Won’t Get You Dumped
1. Spa Gift Certificate
Every girl needs a little R&R once in a while. (Okay, maybe once than ONCE in a while!), so Health & Wellness Gift Cards by SpaWeek should be received well. Services include manicures, pedicures, massages, facials, massages, and more.

3. Event Tickets
There’s nothing a gal loves more than getting dolled up or down to hit up a concert, Broadway play, or sporting event. A night out on the town or day at the stadium is the ideal gift for someone who enjoys spending time with you (We’re assuming they think you’re okay since you’ve nabbed them as your Valentine.). Choose from plays, sporting events, comedians, concerts, and more. Although giving a gift certificate to TicketsNow runs the risk of seeming impersonal, you can make it more unique by printing out the events you had considered and circling the ones you thought looked the most interesting. Tell your gal you wanted to decide together which event would be the most enoyable for you both.
3 Gift Certificates That You Should Avoid at All Costs
Tired of being tied down? Want to live the single life on the soppiest Hallmark holiday of the year? Well, then we’ve got the cure for your cabin fever that will leave you doing cupid’s shuffle all the way to the dog house. Check out our 3 Gift Certificates that will pretty much guarantee a strained relationship.
1. A Diet System or Weight Loss Plan Gift Certificate
I don’t think we need to explain this one.
2. A Gym Membership
Nothing says “You Are Special” like letting your honey know you feel as though it would be in their best interest to hit the gym. You may just think you are urging your lady to live a healthy lifestyle, but Valentine’s Day is not the optimal time to go all Livestrong on her butt.
3. A Gift Certificate to that Shady Looking Chinese Restaurant Down The Street
Mur. This illustrates a lack of effort. She doesn’t even like Chinese that much and even if she did, she doesn’t want to eat at that one star joint. Steer clear of giving gifts that make it appear as though you forgot her or didn’t put much thought into picking something out. If her idea of “camping” is staying at a Holiday Inn or if she’d rather hunt for a killer pair of Mary-janes than hike up a mountain, Valentine’s Day is not the time to try to lobby for your hobbies.
