Mr. DDW needs some help. Let’s just say (since wife is reading over shoulder) that he’s already bought her a present/made plans for the day. However, for practicality and for other various unsaid reasons, I’d like to get your input. So, vote away!

Hi Mr. DDW!! *waves*
Personally, I’m over the flowers and the chocolates and the stuffed animals. Although, giving me flowers randomly would be a really nice surprise.
But to answer your question, it would be great if he made me something special… like cook! I do 95% of the cooking in our house and it would be a nice break for me.

I’d like to go on a little fun/adventurous/romantic getaway! That would be my favorite thing to get for Valentine’s Day

I like food, so my #1 choice is fine dining. Give me an excuse to dress up.
#2 would be good chocolates. Since we both like good chocolate w/ tea or wine, it’s a gift that both of us can enjoy.

JEWELRY, Mr. DDW.
Just kidding, I don’t care about it, but some women might prefer that and it was not one of the choices. Though I see pork chops made it on the list!
I would just like a nice card, maybe some flowers, and a nice dinner. No need to go crazy for V-Day, but a gesture is nice.

I picked pork chops, meaning I’d like a nice dinner. Preferably out, where I don’t have to cook or help clean up. He’ll get me flowers anyway though, because he always does. I just feel bad that they’re so expensive that week!

I do like receiving lingerie. Im not likely to buy it for myself and my husband will give me exactly what he likes so I think its a win win situation. Chocolates are nice but Im trying to be healthy. Flowers are nice too but we have 2 cats so they are always eating them!

My favorite thing is when he takes time to write out a nice card that says all sorts of mushy stuff :). Another favorite is when he actually watches a romantic comedy with me. Since we typically watch stuff that we both enjoy, we don’t watch them very often.
From the ‘typical’ gifts, I love the Russel Stover chocolates and corny stuffed animals :).

I’m going to vote to coming home to a perfectly clean house with dinner cooked and a back rub. Otherwise, I always love me some chocolate.

Oh yeah, like Jo.lee suggested… seeing a romantic comedy would be very nice and with no whining or making fun of it, too! 🙂

I voted for pork chops because it’s always a treat when Fiance cooks dinner for me for a change.

@ttn133: Haha, thanks for adding that on there! My dad is fifty something, and he still makes loud kissing noises at romantic movies :).

I don’t think it’s fair to force me to choose between a stuffed fire-breathing dragon or “other”, but I went with the latter. For Christmas, the only thing I wanted was for my husband to plan an activity that we’d never done before. It could be sky-diving, taking a wine tasting class, going on some sort of trip, whatever – I just wanted him to come up with an idea, conquer the logistics, and make it happen. So, once the weather cooperates, we’re going on a hot-air balloon trip 🙂

The BEST V Day gift I ever received from my now fiance’ was a CD made by him that had songs on it that reminded him of me. This was our first V day together and it was just awesome to listen to the words and know that he actually thought those awesome things about me. It has remained #6 in my disc changer in every car I’ve had since then and when I am feeling down or have a bad day, I always listen to it.
Good luck with your decision! and welcome BTW!~
