We’ve been dating for 5 years. Our dating anniversary and Valentine’s day are about a month and a half apart, so each year we flip flop paying and doing something special. Last year I had our 4 year dating anniversary, and now I have valentine’s this year. I know its about a month away, but I like planning early!
We’ve been dating for so long now that I feel all my ideas are out… I’ve made fncy homemade meals a few times, taken him out to fancy schmany resturants, took him to see Les Miserables last year.
What could be a cute/romantic UNIQUE date?
Also.. what should I get him!? I feel like I failed miserably for Christmas, and now I need to get him something meaningful… lol
( He’s mid-twenties, loves video games and movies…but I don’t know which movies or games he had right now, we don’t live together, He’s more of a nerdy, fun, sweet guy.. not so much jock or such. lol) I only got him nice work clothes and such for Christmas.

I have no idea. I’m trying to figure out the same thing- what to do for Valentines day??
We have decided not to get each other presents anymore, but we still like surprises, good meals and fun activities to celebrate birthdays, holidays and anniversaries.

GO ZIP LINING! I was in the same position as you last year for FI’s birthday (in mid-March, so I feel your pain). Then I saw a GroupOn for zip lining and it was SO MUCH FUN!

Zip lining would be fun… but I live in Michigan. It’s like 20 degrees outside right now, with 30mph winds. Maybe for his b-day in the summer!

It may be too obvious, but you could get lingerie…
What kind of video games does he like? Do you two ever play any video games together? My Fiance and I sometimes play strip Mario Kart. Basically you compete against each other and whoever loses the race needs to take one item of clothing off.

Our Valentine’s Day tradition is to…ehmm…buy a new toy for the bedroom. LOL We didn’t do it last year because we were recovering financially from the wedding, Christmas, honeymoon, etc and we both missed it. DH keeps saying “One month to the new toy!” He’s pretty excited. lol

@Lemma: LOL I never thought of that! That does sounds like fun!
@LizLemon: I like the idea though! I’ll tuck it away for the summer 🙂
@ArwenBride: That’s pretty funny! Sounds like a fun tradition.
Fiance and I are trying not to be physical though.. until the wedding. These are some really good ideas for next year though 😉
I was thinking of a gift idea… and he just bought some really nice Express dress shirts, and he’s beginning out in the career world. So I thought I could get him some personalized collar stays.
There are some on Etsy for around $15 or so. What do you bees think?

I bought my SO tickets to see John Pinette. Check your local theatres to see if there’s any good comedians coming to town!

@mandigrl04: Umm….this is freaky. We do the exact same thing. When we started 9 years ago, I told him I didn’t want a gift, I just wanted him to plan the date–since I was always the planner! Then i took our anniversary that year. Its his turn for Valentine’s Day this year.
One year I asked him whether he would ever like a bouquet and he said no. So I made him a “bouquet” of socks, which he loves–funky ones especially–folded the socks into flower shapes and stuck them on craft sticks. He loved it!

I think I’m gonna get him a couple of nice ties. He’s just starting off in the business world and I love watching him try and match shirts/ties – so cute after 5 years of seeing him in nothing but jeans and old T-shirts!
We’re trying to stay low-budget this year and next to save for the wedding, but hey, he needs ties.

@Roe: Hhaha! That’s awesome! I really like the bouquet of socks! He’s been saying that he wants some argyle fun colored dress socks. 🙂
@MissCalifornia: My guy needs some ties too.. he’s student teaching right now. I agree it’s fun watching him dress up after looking so scrubby in comic tees and such lol
