(Closed) What is your ideal gift for Valentine’s Day?

  • poll: What would you like to receive from your DH, FI, SO?

    Fresh Flowers. The kind that last more than 3 days.

    Chocolates. The expensive kind. Not those cheap Russell Stover craps.

    Stuffed animal. Preferably some sort of vicious creature, like a fire breathing dragon.

    Lingerie. Hmm. Not sure what to put here.

    Pork chops. Delicious AND nutritious.

    Other. Please explain below.

    I asked him for an electric toothbrush, but I’m really hoping for jewelry! There are a couple of rings I’ve had my eye on that I’ve pointed out to him…

    I picked other and am explaining: NOTHING.  πŸ™‚  My sweetie shows me how very special I am everyday and a manufactured day on the calendar isn’t important to me.  If I had to choose something, I’d love for him to make a donation for Best Friends Ranch in our name…

    I wish Sushi dinner was on the list of choices…

    And a relaxation massage!

    I’d pass up all that other stuff for these πŸ™‚

    A love letter or a homemade card. Hope I don’t put you on the spot, but it truly is what I want more than anything. And I’m not talking about something all long and rhyming poetry and mushy an impossible to write, but seriously it is so nice to hear the things he loves about me and how he feels about our future together. Good luck!!!

    @Miichelle: we’re getting Sushi on friday with a bunch of friends, so I’d be surprised if he pulls that one out of the hat for V-Day πŸ™‚

    @ddw: You have the cutest husband ever.

    @Mr. DDW: Can I say all of the above? I’d love to just really be spoiled for a day. DH is thoughtful but I’m not sure he’s ever gone all out for me before. Something that shows a lot of forethought and isn’t done with an “*sigh* do I have to??” would be amazing πŸ˜‰

    I picked ‘flowers’ but I rather have just ONE red rose. That’s it. And I want him to spend as much of the evening/day with me as possible. We do tend to do these romantic type things regularly so V-day doesn’t seem all too extra special other than that one rose which I don’t get on other days.

    I’d like to start the day with a nice hot-yoga session. Then have a light breakfast. Sit at the cafe and have coffee, read the paper, general chatter.

    Go home, watch a movie, take a nap. Get up in the evening, get dressed, go out for dinner and drinks. I don’t usually have dessert so I would like to have it on this day. Spend time talking to each other. Come home, watch another movie, relax, have coffee maybe and fall asleep in my honey’s arms.

    But really, I’m not expecting anything for V-day.

    Last year my husband got me a couples massage. It was great b/c it was right before the wedding so we were both stressed, and it was nice to share that time with him.

    I’m pretty sure we aren’t doing anything for Valentine’s Day this year. We’re broke and Valentine’s Day is on a school night (lame!) so meh. BUT that doesn’t mean a girl can dream, right? The perfect gift for me for Valentine’s Day this year is a pair of footie pajamas! To make it even more perfect, DH would also get a pair for himself (not gonna happen), and we’d cuddle up on the couch watching a movie (LOTR maybe) and drink hot cocoa πŸ™‚ Poifect! I’m pretty low key.

    Not that I’d complain about a vacation or something, but we both have classes and no long break in the near future, so I have to be realistic :p

     

    Oh, and for the record, I usually do the cooking and would LOVE LOVE LOVE if DH made something nice as a special surprise one night.

    I’d like a nice dinner, flowers (that aren’t roses!), and a massage from my husband.

    I like flowers. I think they’re nice to have around the house.

    Lingerie would be terrible right now since my abs have dissapeared under a baby bump. πŸ™

    I think I’m just going to ask him to go with me to register for baby stuff and pick out some nursery furniture since I don’t really want anything.
