DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – One might expect a celebrity like Khloe Kardashian Odom to make a really big deal out of a special occasion like Valentine’s Day. Fancy restaurants. Expensive gifts. Wild night out on the town.
Adoring callers phoned in to Khloe’s Dallas radio show on Tuesday to ask what nighttime plans she had with basketball player husband Lamar. Turns out, their evening is going to be rather uneventful. “We’re actually going to, all day, we’re going to be hanging out,” she said, “taking it easy, relaxing. He obviously has practice for the Mavs. The rest of the day, we’re just going to be relaxing.”
Meanwhile, other guys across the Metroplex will be dishing out big bucks to shower their sweethearts with gifts, fretting over reservations at busy restaurants and working hard to create an unforgettable night.
Why can Lamar get away with such peaceful plans at home? “Everyday, Lamar treats me like it’s Valentine’s Day,” Khloe said.
Of course, it probably also helps that Khloe doesn’t really enjoy the whole Valentine’s Day ritual. “It’s just a weird holiday. I don’t really get it,” she explained, noting that people put too much emphasis on the day. It makes singles feel lonely and those in relationships feel pressured. “It’s just so stupid.”
“We don’t do gifts on Valentine’s Day,” Khloe added. “Treat her good all the time.” But for the record, Khloe said that her favorite flowers are hydrangeas, in case any fans wanted to send their own presents.
What does Khloe like to give people on holidays? Again, you might think that she orders a high-priced item from a fancy boutique, but nothing could be further from the truth. “I love to make gifts,” she said. “Like for Easter or for Valentine’s Day, I make my own presents.”
Khloe picks themes – like hearts – and creates a collection of gifts related to that concept, though she refused to say what presents she made for her sisters. “They can be, like, $20 and you make them yourself,” Khloe said. “It’s fun!”
