bump, dammit! I want some ideas. 🙂
Personally, I think what you have planned sounds perfect. He won’t be thinking about an actual gift once he walks into the bedroom…he’ll have something else on his mind… 😉
Maybe some edible body frosting or something to exchange and then lead him to the bedroom after you give it to him? I think Victoria Secret, Spencer’s, or Walgreens has edible body frosting.
OMG You’re a deviant!
J/k, though now I am wondering what your plans were.
I already gave Fiance his Valentines gift (a new record player so he could finally listen to his vinyl records again) but for the actual night….. not sure yet.
I’ll make a nice dinner like lobster and steak with asparagus and mashed potatoes or something.
Then it’s upstairs for a little alone time, just him and I and some champagne and chocolates.
I just hope that we don’t collapse into bed and fall asleep exhausted like we have been these past few weeks. Work has been really hectic for both of us lately.
I was just gonna get a sexy nighty or something since we are broke right now paying for all the wedding stuff! lol
@Otaqueen: Haha, your response made me giggle. All right, I’ll repost since this is actually getting some traffic now.
My plan, as I see it is to give my Darling Husband a special little get-away without even leaving the house. We have a completely empty room in our house that we were saving for a baby if we choose to in the future. So, I’m treating it like a blank canvas.
I’ve put up our wedding day chuppah on the ceiling like a canopy, and from it I’m going to stream some fabric hearts, which will softly billow towards the floor, and skirt the perimeter of a cozy set up (either our air mattress, or an envelopment of extra down comforters we have). I’m going to put linen on the walls to soften the space, and I have two pillar candle holders that I’ll use for ambient lighting. I’ll have mood-music playing in the background of course, and the room will be complete with a couple of wine glasses and light snacks– I’m thinking some grapes, maybe some whipped cream & chocolate covered strawberries. We also have the kama sutra board game that we haven’t played in ages. It might be a good time to set that up on our little enclosure too.
I was asking other bees if there should be a gift aside from me all dolled up for the occasion. I was thinking maybe I could make him a nice dinner, and take him upstairs and blind-fold him, spin him around a couple of times, and lead him into the room for the reveal. It’s no fun if he sees where we’re going. I want to knock his socks off with the transformation. What do you think? 🙂
@StuporDuck: Wow that sounds so great!
I wish I could do something like that. Hmmm, maybe I’ll buy some new lingerie or something.
Is there anything he needs? I mean my Valentines gift wasn’t really romantic but he needed a new record player.
Though from the sounds of all the work you’re going to to make it a surprise, that might be gift eough.
@Otaqueen: I’ve been thinking about that too, but I can’t come up with anything other than a paper shredder– not the most romantic piece of equipment ever.
I did ask him if he could go anywhere in the world, where would it be (his answer: San Diego– BORING), so I’ve been thinking about adding a California flare to my room. Not sure how to do that though.
I just wanted something to take away from the potential cheesiness of my idea. I’m a little self-concious over whether he’ll appreciate all the effort I’m expending. I hope so!
@StuporDuck: Ok so I got an idea, a few of them actually.
How you are going to bring a California feel to the room, I’m not to sure. You can have like an ipod playing ocean sounds like waves crashing or something.
I do have ideas for food though!
So San Diego is very well known for it’s Mexican food so if you both like Mexican how about that for dinner? For instance a California burrito maybe
It’s basically cheese, grilled meat and french fries. Never had one but I know they were created in San Diego.
Fo desert: Extraordinary deserts is a fmous desert place in San Diego. There is always a line out the door. A friend of mine who lived inSan Diego knew how much I love popcorn and chocolate covered espresso beans, so when he came up he brought me caramel popcorn and dark chocolate espresso beans.
Now that he no longer lives in San DIego, I order them online.
Maybe you can find something you both will enjoy and order it from them.
@Otaqueen: yay! Thanks! The ocean sounds I had thought of, but food escaped me. Unfortunately he isn’t one for mexican food, so it’d be me on that venture only, but I love the dessert idea.
I’m not sure how to pull off the other sights and smells of S.D.— I thought maybe one corner could be sea world and I’d have little fish hanging from the ceiling against a blue backdrop, and another corner could be the zoo for which san diego is famous and have a collection of zoo appropriate stuffed animals (I don’t hve to go too far for that) and the opposite corner could be dedicated to the Chargers football team since he’s such a sports nut, but I’m not sure how to pull that one off. I wish he would have chosen Paris or something more fun.
@StuporDuck: You could dress up like a chargers cheerleader, lol.
Their outfit is pretty easy. Just a short pleated white skirt, a blue bikini top and some white sleeves, You could add some pom poms and do a little cheer or dance for him.
Maybe as a gift you can get him a tshirt or a jersey. You can find a sports team logo on everything from blankets to pens to shorts and mugs.
Paris would have been easier, but when do they ever make it easy for us..
