I'm of the mind to avoid manufactured holidays at all costs (Boss's Day, I'm looking in your direction) as I don't believe true appreciation or thanks should ever be reduced to obligation. But even a grizzled Old Trapper, such as myself, still has a soft spot for Valentine's Day. I guess when all the cards are on the table, I'm just as sappy as an old Oak Tree and I'm pretty okay with that.
Now ladies often approach me, unsolicited, in search of Valentine gift advice for the mountain men in their lives. I do understand their dilemma. Society often overlooks men on this most special of days, even though every man I know greatly appreciates overtures of love and affection. And even when men are remembered, what do you buy them? Chocolate? Too sugary... Lingerie? Impractical for most applications... Cologne? Alerts apex predators... A new car? Absolutely, but also impractical... What's a rugged man loving woman to do?
Beef Jerky to the Rescue
The solution is simple: buy your man delicious Old Trapper Beef Jerky. It fits every possible romantic scenario. Is your love passionate and intense? Then Hot & Spicy
is your flavor. Is your love exotic and new? Teriyaki
to the rescue. Is your relationship painful at times but always worth the effort in the end? Peppered Beef Jerky
is your game. Or maybe your man is just Mr. Reliable who always gets your oil changed every 3-5,000 miles, fixes the toilet when it sings, and falls asleep in front of the TV at 9:30 every night. That kind of old fashioned love deserves and Old Fashioned Beef Jerky
So this Valentine's Day, get your man what he really wants: beef jerky
. And while you're at it... get a little for yourself.
All My Best,
