You are lucky your SO will celebrate, mine won’t celebrate Valentines day πŸ™

 

If I was though, I would probably cook him dinner and hopefully we would go out to see a movie, or even do some sort of activity together!

 

The one Valentines day that I did have, the guy I was dating at the time took me out to dinner and got me flowers and a teddy bear. It was so sweet!

@ForeverBirds:  For Valentine’s Day my FI usually takes me out to a nice dinner, and then I’ll make him a fancy dessert at home.  Something typical I might make for a light/cool dessert would be a creme brulee, or my FI’s favorite, a blueberry custard pie (I make this with pastry cream).  Eclairs and cream puffs are also a nice cooling dessert, and the pate a choux is really easy to make.

I planned a surprise trip to a B&B on the coast with a wine tasting and a beer tasting tour for our valentines day/engage-aversary/relax before the wedding.  SO is always the Vday planner and I never do anything, so figured I’d switch it up this year!  It will be nice to get away just the two of us and relax a few weeks before the wedding.

I’ve been thinking of valentines day too, not sure what I’m going to do but the dinner idea sounds good. I have been thinking of doing a chocolate fondue as a dessert as it doesn’t require much prep. We haven’t celebrated it very much in the past, but this is our first valentines as a married couple and I want to do something special.

I’ll be a 12 hour flight away on business come V-day πŸ™ but planning to a arrange a special delivery of a love letter, his favourite chocolates and an iPod with a specially made playlist just for him πŸ™‚

Its a fairly new relationship and our first Vday, I didn’t want it to slip by completely unnoticed. Of course, he won’t be able to do anything for me given I’ll be somewhere in Africa, which works in my favour because i will have the element of surprise on my side! He won’t be expecting anything πŸ˜‰

@ForeverBirds:  what about a chocolate mousse if you want something light? I like housebee’s eclair idea…

My SO will be 3,000 miles away on Valentine’s Day this year πŸ™  But I’m planning to send him a care package with some cute things in it – not sure what yet, but probably some stuff you can only get in our city plus some homemade cookies.

I’m hoping we’ll get to have a skype date that night, too, but since it’s a Thursday and there’s a 3-hour time difference… not holding my breath :/

@ForeverBirds:  That sounds delicious!! I am planning on doing “14 days of February” sort of thing. From February 1st to the 14th, I am going to give him a very small gift with a short note in the morning. I’m thinking things like his favorite candy, a $5 giftcard, socks…etc. Just little things πŸ˜‰ 

As for Valentine’s Day, I’m trying to leave it up to him to do the romance piece on the actual day. I always do things for him and I think he’s gotten used to that, so I’m just going to tell him to worry about the night of. I am definetly going to get him a gift. Probably a new video game and a bottle of his favorite whiskey πŸ™‚

@ForeverBirds:  My FI is the first person I have been with that will actually “celebrate” it. For the first time, we made dinner reservations at a Brazilian rodizio style restaurant. I’m thinking about surprising him with a gift. He has wanted a GoPro video camera for months now. I looked at them and decided I will get it bc he can also use it during our honeymoon for excursions. LOL

 

I think your meal sounds great. THe dessert wouldnt be bad as long as you have a gap so he can eat it. What about homemade ice cream as the dessert or some type of mousse that’s lighter if you think something baked is too heavy.

@ForeverBirds:  That’s kind of what he says. Basically what he told me was that we should show love all year round. Well that’s great, but he has never gotten me flowers. We have dated for over 2 years now. We rarely go on romantic dates, I think maybe we have gone on one. Not that I am complaining, I love going to see movies. But a nice dinner once in a while would be nice too!
