My FH is currently living 1000 miles away, and I’m struggling a lot with ideas for what to do for Valentine’s Day. My biggest problem is I have literally NO money to spare until I get paid Friday, which is a bit late for mailing anything. He said both his mom and stepmom are sending him cookies soon, so he thinks he’ll be cookied out. He doesn’t like frivolous (sp?) things, thinks cards are a waste of time/money (for himself, he gets them for me ^_^), etc. His “love language” is acts of service, but what can I DO for him from so far away? He wants some stuff for his office, so I was thinking about a framed picture of us, but even that costs money and runs the risk of being broken in shipping. I might do something small now, then get him some office stuff to give him when he comes in town in March, but what do I do for the something small now? Help!

How about some dedicated romantic phone or internet/video cam time? Spend this time and then let him know that he will also have a special surprise in March. Keep in mind that you love him everyday, not just Valentines day, and that doing something special does not have to be on that special day. Save your pennies to get him the framed photo (and other goodies) in March, but give him the gift of you and your time on the actual day 🙂

Can you send him a gift online that he can use when you’re together again? I am taking my fiance to a hotel for the night. Could you send yours a gift card to a restaurant you both love, or a itinerary to an overnight trip that you’ve planned for the next time you see him? When I am broke and need a last minute gift, I always order something online and give the shipping info as the gift!

Does he like chocolate? I seen this M&M website where you can personalize them with words or pics of you guys together!!! It costs $38, dont know what your budget is, but its different and cuteIf this is too expensive, maybe make him a love song cd with old school love jams and songs you’ve shared together, that way everytime he listens to the cd he will think of you and what you dedicate to him
Nevermind, didnt realize how old this thread was, haha
