What are you giving/getting for Valentines?

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Well i didn't see a thread for this (unless my eyes are not working) but what are you guys planning to give to your loved ones for Valentines, or do you know what they are giving you?

I found one of those romantic novelty voucher books. It has about 30 ripout vouchers for romantic dinners, masssages, doing certain things in a place of their choice etc. And they are valid for a lifetime. If you get handed one you can't say no lol

I bought Dorian some cat treats. He's my valentine! Of course, all the girls will get cat treats from me, too.

Normally choccy for DH - we are trying to not spend too much this year, so rather than filling the pockets of the greeting card people, we are having a competion to see who can find the cheapest, grottiest, cheesiest Valentines card!!!!

Actually, it is a bit of a sore point this year - he is working nights, so will be sleeping most of the day............and I shall be 50 miles away on a management training course!!

I bought DH a card that sings "Wild Thang" and a funny looking kitten on the front. I love it! We normally don't buy gifts just enjoy a dinner out.

It's just an excuse for greeting card companies to make an awful lot of money. In the original Roman fertility festival around this date (Lupercalia) the women wanting to conceive would whip the priest of the Lupercal with bloody strips of goatskin while he ran down the street naked, this was done as a fertility blessing. Now it's an excuse to spend money in card shops and florists. How times change.

Obviousely you share love everyday with your partner and gifts are given randomly. But i do like just having this extra special day. As i'd spent every valentines alone before i met Tristan it is very important to me. This is only our second one together. I dont spend an arm and a leg but it is nice getting a little card and present and a great excuse for more chocolate

I agree with you there. That was an interesting story on that!

That gives me some new ideas on what to do for Valentines Day!

Just whatever you do, don't post photos! That would be too much information

Don't worry, I think!

I completely agree it's another Hallmark kind of day but so what. Any excuse for candy and/or flowers is okay in my book! (I just can't stand the mushy cards.)

He's taking me to Disney World so I made reservations for dinner at the France pavilion in Epcot.

Well- i'm a florist- so as usual....i will probably be up to my ears in roses all day long....so that's not really too exciting

I do however try to make a nice day of it when work is done (which on Valentines day can be LONG- so sometimes we celebrate the day after)

I got Colin an awesome green Brusco travel mug and a really nice card for Valentines day. Right now he has crummy coffee mugs and they spill all the time. Brusco mugs don't tip/spill, they keep the drinks warm (not cold or scalding) and they're just AWESOME!!! Totally worth the money. So i'm really excited to give this to him. I'm also going to go to the grocery store and pick up several tiny little bags of coffee and fix it all up for him. He's working the C shift right now (10:30-6:30am ) and he is a morning person- so needless to say he's having it really rough trying to stay awake through this shift for right now. It's supposed to be temporary- but they haven't said for how long- so i thought a nice coffee mug and some yummy coffees would be perfect His mug is this deep green/turquoise color, but manly. His last name is Green so we're always getting green things

For my mom- who has always been and will always be my number one valentine- i got her a Hallmark Wish Sister- the "comfort" one. She has always adored them every time we go in there- that one in particular, but never got one for herself- so i thought it would be really nice to give her The last time i went to Hallmark- they actually had it marked down to $4.99!! They're normally around $20 and up, so i picked it up early for her! I got her a cute card to go with it. If i'm not too busy right before Valentines day (Yea Right!!) I might wrap her present and braid it with flowers to make the package nice.

We don't really do gifts...I've made him something every year, though. And then he takes me out for dinner!

My boyfriend and I go out of town for a few nights every Valentines Day. It will be his first day off in over 3 weeks, he has been stuck with overtime on all his days off. So it will be nice to get away and spend some time together! We got into a cheesy little trend of getting matching PJ's for all the holidays when we first got together 2 years ago, so I got us some valentines PJ's, I will get him some chocolate, a card...the usual generic stuff lol, gotta find some kind of present still though. He says he has some stuff planned I don't know about, so we will see, I am just looking forward to getting away for a few days and relaxing!

I'll be giving Rich a kitchen utensil again When we started dating, he didn't have a vegetable peeler, which drove me mad if we were cooking at his place. So I bought him one and as it happened to be Valentine's Day when I handed it over, he thought it was his gift So now it's become a tradition. Over the years he has had the veggie peeler, a potato masher and an ice-cream scooper!
