    We do small gifts at random points and enjoy experiences more for special occasions. We will probably get a room, a nice dinner, maybe see a show or go to a casino. A couple years ago we went to a strip club, had bottle service and a fun sexy night out. 

    What does your husband like? Hobbies, interests, how does he like to be spoiled?

    We really never do anything. We’re always up for an excuse to go out to eat, but for Valentine’s Day it’s just not worth it. Way too crowded everywhere! We don’t exchange gifts either… it just has always been a commercial thing to us… and he’s impossible to shop for. haha. It seems weird to follow a “make this random day special for your relationship/love!” day to us. =\ Sorry!

    Take something you guys really enjoy together and elevate it or make it unique somehow that’s more geared towards his preferences/likes/enjoyments. Without knowing either if you, giving you any options that aren’t cliche/typical/lame are kind of difficult! 😉

    We tell each other happy Valentine’s Day, but that’s about it. Neither of us think of it as a very important holiday.

    mrshomemaker:  Do you have an observatory where you live? He might like a night to go and see an event or show.

    A nice bag? Perfect!

    We exchange cards. That’s about it.

    Walking dead is my only concern on Valentine’s.

    My fiance and I celebrate Valentines day.  We may go out for a nice dinner,  last year we went for a mini vacation for two nights. We exchange gifts but nothing extravagant.  

     We also take turns planning our “romantic” holidays.  One year I’ll plan Valentines day and he’ll plan our anniversary.  The next year we switch.

    I voted “other” because we usually go out to a nice dinner. The only catch about ours is that we go the day after Valentine’s Day because it’s always so packed on V-Day. Some people might think “what’s the point if it’s not on the actual day” but it’s become a little tradition for us.

    Our anniversary is Valentine’s Day which we chose because of the history of the day.  This is our first anniversary so we are taking a vacation together for a week and I am getting a small one tier cake made before we go. He said he’s planning something nice during our trip as my gift. 

    Before we were married we would go to dinner and he would get me flowers.

    We have a nice dinner out or make one at home depending on what day it falls. He’ll give me flowers and I’ll give him a card. Past that, no gifts. I mean between Christmas, anniversaries and bdays, it’s just too much!

    Fiance and I both get something small for each other and I’m sure we’ll do something fun on Valentine’s Day. Maybe go bowling.
