The big day is getting near

A gentle reminder to all male readers of (female readers rarely need reminding about such things!), it is Valentine's day on Tuesday. So get your cards, flowers etc all ready for the big day.

All this avoids having to confess to not getting a card and others will be amazed by your popularity. It also has the great benefit of boosting local businesses!
