Or What would you like to receive/hope to not get!
I love the cheesy obvious gifts, like flowers, chocolates, jewelry, ect!
But I do not want a stuffed animal this year. My husband gets me one every year, last year he got me a pretty big one though (not huge or anything) but it takes up to much room! This is our second Valentines day in our own home & married so all of the other vday stuffed animals was in a pile at my mom’s house in my old room there & was not a big bother.
My “I don’t hate but just don’t want because they get in the way”:

Hahaha I’d like to get anything! 🙂 Fiance thinks valentines day is a hallmark holiday so we really dont do much for it. I can’t really complain as he buys me random “I love you” gifts throughout the year, so yeah.
Since I’m on a diet, I would not be pleased if he bought chocolate and stuffed animals just lay around. My fav would be jewelry

Flowers, yes please! Jewelery, OF COURSE!
After adopting a healthier lifestyle over two years ago I have tried to avoid candy and it bothers me greatly when people know this about me and yet still give me bucket loads (case in point my FMIL). It is a sweet guesture but wasted money as I just have to give it all away.

I hate stuffed animals. Darling Husband has gotten me 2 in the 4 V-days we’ve been together. I still have them but they do get in the way and honestly I think they’re a little juvenile. In his defense, they were included in the flowers he got me, so what can a girl do? 🙂
The sweetest thing he’s done was make me a hand made card with a picture of us on it. It’s turning yellow on the edges and getting a little crispy, but I still have it hanging up beside my computer. Things from the heart mean more than the candy/flowers/stuffed bears.
I wouldn’t exactly flush jewlery down the toilet tho… just so we’re clear! haahaa!

I voted for all the do not like options. It’s a commercialized holiday. I’d rather have Fiance surprise me on a random day to “show” that he loves me though he does every single day. =)

I basically don’t like any of the traditional gifts. I told Fiance that I don’t like flowers the first year we were together (because they die and it’s sad to throw them out). Instead, he sent me a gift package of fancy pants gourmet CHEESES. It was the best Valentine’s gift ever. Cheese is way better than flowers, and it was so delicious.
We don’t do gifts for Valentine’s Day now, but last year he did get me roses, which I ended up thinking was very sweet and they did look beautiful on the table with the fancy meal I cooked.

I’m on a very low-sugar diet for health reasons, so no candy (DH is COMPLETELY supportive on this). Flowers and jewelry? Yes. Stuffed animals are a no, because I have severe dust mite allergies.
Geez, I just vetoed 50% of the “usual” gifts citing health reasons…such a dork.
Side note: Darling Husband admitted he almost ordered these as my gift… https://www.orderhotbooties.com/
SO GLAD he didn’t.
