From a sewing machine to a can of air, women have received all kinds of bad gifts.
Depending on your view, Valentine's Day is either a fun holiday to show someone how much you care about them, or a Hallmark holiday created to increase card sales. Whatever you think of the holiday, don't forget to give something to your loved ones. But be careful: you don't want your gift to end up on the receiver's "worst gift list." A story posted on iVillage includes "worst" gifts such as a sewing machine, tickets to a death metal concert and even a poinsettia. I even know someone who had to talk their friend out of buying a lamp for his sweetie for Valentine's Day. So on this Feb. 14, we want to know what was the worst gift you ever received on Valentine's Day? Tell us in the comments. What could have made it better?
Pucker up, lovebirds, and head to Qdoba on Valentine's Day for a free entree.
Customers at the Qdoba restaurant on Mishawum Road can get free food today—if they don't mind a little PDA. The nationwide restaurant chain is now in its third year of a special Valentine's Day promotion: "Buy one entree, share a smooch with someone special -- or someone willing -- and get a second entree for free," says Qdoba. All kissing has to happen at the cash register, and no coupon is necessary. The promotion is happening nationwide. And this year, there's even a new twist to the promotion -- the Qdoba Kiss Cam. Snap a pic of the moment and share it via Instagram, Twitter or Facebook and you'll have a shot at winning one of three prizes, including free burritos for a year. The deadline to submit your photo is midnight on Feb. 17. …

Head downtown this morning as soon as the stores open and net a perfect, one-of-a-kind gift for your Valentine. GIFTS FOR HIM 1. SOMETHING TO WARM UP HIS COLD WINTER NIGHTS Consider a fine sipping liquor for your gentleman.
