Great ideas. I think I'll by the memo board for myself though. ;-)

Helen said...

That is awesome! That memo/picture/thingy is the best thing I have ever seen... I might get that just because it would make a perfect little reminder!

Supposing, of course, that I can convince hubby to check it every time he comes home o.o

And you know, you're right. I work at Hallmark and besides cards, there is pretty much NOTHING to get a guy for V-Day, unless he likes stuffed animals and candy. The way to a man's heart is through his electronics!
