[twitter]The countdown is on, gentlemen. We have just days left to sort out the Valentine’s Day surprise.

Trust me, even if she says “don’t worry about Valentine’s Day”, she expects you to worry about it. My wife insists all she ever wants is “a card,” but I know better.

This year, I’m getting everything done quickly and easily online via PayPal and you can too with a chance to win $100 from PayPal to get your shopping done.

Need some ideas? There are millions of places you can shop online with PayPal.

logo_paypalNot a fan of the lingerie store experience? Shuffle through her ‘niceties’ drawer while she’s in the shower, get the exact and perfect size, and then click through LaSenza‘s site. No awkward encounter with the clerk, and you get the right size.

My wife loves diamonds. I bought her engagement ring online via BlueNile and she absolutely loves it. It was cheaper, and the diamond was better than any of the other places I looked. Maybe you wandered the mall and she saw the perfect one at People’s (The Diamond Store). You can buy it online with PayPal without her around.

Sensual gifts like a personalized perfume from Aromachology, or some relaxing bath bombs from LUSH would be perfect.

PayPal even works for a Valentine’s Date Night as you can use PayPal to buy your movie tickets in advance using the Cineplex mobile app. A few clicks and your tickets are purchased and you cruise right into the theatre.

If you’re totally stuck, there is a PayPal gift finder to help you discover more places you can pay with PayPal.

Honestly? I have used PayPal for my person-to-person purchasing through eBay and etsy, but had never thought about using it for business purchases.

I like to shop online and using PayPal proves check out is faster because you don’t need to enter payment and shipping info (it’s already in your PayPal profile). You can keep your financial details away from the various sites you’re shopping with (PayPal does the transaction). When you pay online you can do it with your PayPal balance, bank account, or credit card.


Now here’s your chance to win $100 for your PayPal account for Valentine’s Day.

    I would absolutely love to surprise my boyfriend with a Nintendo 3DS – he’s a huge gamer and has been wanting it for months, I’m pretty sure I would get major points for this one! They’re expensive, so $100 from PayPal would be a big help!

    Tweeted too! Thanks for the fantastic giveaway, really hope I win! Keep up the great work. ๐Ÿ™‚

    With a $100, would probably buy a massage. Ideal gift (will definitely cost more than $100) would be dinner on a private jet, night in a different city and lunch back at home.
