My FI ALWAYS, and I mean always does almost the same exact thing every valentines day. It’s predictable, but at least I know he’ll do something!

He always gets me a dozen high quality roses, a bunch of balloons, some type of stuffed animal w/ jewelry, and we go out for a nice dinner.

He does the same thing for my birthday. [Which is 1 month, 2 days later!].

Your plans sound so sweet! I definitely think homemade wins over a material gift, and I am sure he’ll appreciate the extra effort.  FI and I had our first date on Valentine’s Day, so we always just go back to the same restaurant we ate at and do a casual V-Day.  It lessens the pressure since we tend to go all-out for Christmas.

I would think that’d your BF would be more prepared this year, and you suprising him will be a cute romantic touch for that day.  I totally agree about something homemade, especially if you’re a good cook.  My FI prefers my cooking to dining out, but he always takes me out on Valentines Day so I can have a “day off” as he puts it (I don’t work).  He even gets up early so he can leave me little notes around the house that I can find throughout the day.  I usually end up making his favorite dessert at home though (he refuses to eat purchased baked goods lol).

my Fi and I didnt do anything in 2011 in 2012 we tried to do something but it just didnt work out =c sad to say.. However before I met my FI I HATED valentines day. I had bf’s most of the time and they gave me gifts, took me out but i never really enjoyed all that. Until i met my FI, now im really excited to valenitnes every time it comes around and ive just recently been disapointed with it. He asked me out on valentines so i guess thats why I value it more than I use to. When he asked me out he gave me chocolates( the really good ones that come in those velvet box’s!), a david bowie vynal record, 11 rozes( earlier in the day he stopped by my work and gave me one of the roses and asked me to come over after work, he said it was a promise of more to com =D i thought it was SO cute) and a pair of giant fuzzy dice haha I still have the dice rolling around somewhere.. so i know hes capable of romantic gestures.. there just hasnt been time. I love him regardless =D

@lsimpson:  I think your plan sounds awesome! 

Last year for V-day, I don’t even know what we did.  I think we got Chinese and watched movies.  I’m not a big fan of the day.  It’s a Hallmark Holiday.  DH goes all out for my birthday, and I don’t think he needs to do that for V-day too.

This year, we will probably get Chinese and watch movies.  I’ll try to remember to pick up some champagne.  πŸ™‚  I will definitely get him a nice card, though.

Nah, I wouldn’t be mad. Valentine’s day is sort of a silly day IMO. It’s fun and cute, but to me, it’s mostly for kids and teens, not so much adults. We usually exchange cards, but don’t do gifts or a big to-do about it.

This is my first Valentine’s I’ll be without an SO to spend it with in 5 years. My new SO is moving to California for 4 months tomorrow so we’ll be apart on Feb. 14 – but he says he’s got something planned for me, which I’m excited about! I’m going to send him a care package with volume 2 of a mix I’ve been working on for him (gave him volume 1 yesterday as a going away gift), some homemade cookies and a few other little things.

I love Valentine’s Day, too. It’s silly and fun, but I don’t take it too seriously. People usually get all shocked when I tell them that we never do anything super special for Valentine’s Day, but I do not care.

Anyway. I think your plan sounds very sweet, but unless you TELL HIM that you want him to do something for you…he probably won’t.

I love Valentine’s Day, but that’s DH & my’s “first” anniversary. Its our dating anniversary and when we got engaged, so we always do something. We won’t do anything big-just dinner & cards, but this is our last V-Day with just the 2 of us! πŸ™‚

If I was in your position and had made it clear to my boyfriend that it was important (which you did, I think), then I would be disappointed if he didn’t make plans to celebrate it.

Personally speaking, DH and I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day, so I don’t expect anything, nor does he. I get excited about all the candy on sale the day after, though! πŸ™‚
