Valentine’s Day can go one of two drastically different directions: 1) Execute it perfectly and you will be basking in adoration for the next 365
days; or 2) Drop the ball and you spend the next 365 days trying to correct the error of your ways. Don’t fret, though, making your partner’s day
is easier than it seems. Case in point: These can’t-fail gifts that let her know she’s the center of your world.
Valentines day is coming up . What will you be doing for your dear darling ? This thread is for men , who want to do something special for their
partners. Not for the anti-valentine people , who think its just another marketing ploy lol.
This day is for her , sure you should love her unconditionally everyday , but v-day is when all her gf's are going to be showing off what they got ,
women are fierce competitors , thats why its important she doesn't feel left out. Its just a gentlemen thing to do , for your partner on a day of
"hearts" . She deserves it no ? she puts up with you all year long , its the least one can do !
You don't have to buy anything , but remember its the thought that counts. Your actions speak much louder then words. You could do very simple things
to make her day memorable , and your night magical
That's right , give her a gift she can eat after , and i'm sure we all know how a women's chemistry changes when she gets some of that mmmm
chocolate to melt in her mouth ! These gifts sure do give back ! lol
But what if you wanna go past that ? something more thoughtful.
Make up a batch of heart-shaped pancakes for a yummy Valentine's breakfast or brunch. Just pour the batter in the frying pan in a free-form heart
shape and serve with strawberries and whipped cream.
Each of you can create individual notes, say 4 or 6 each, to describe a special surprise - a back rub, a bubble bath, kisses from head to toe, a
special meal - fold up the notes and toss them into a jar. You can take turns having fun plucking a coupon from the jar and doing what it says
Visit a hospital or chronic care home to pass out small Valentine surprises to the residents. They will enjoy the care and attention from something so
Make sure you wear old clothes for this one and plan this escapade where cleanup will be easy (no carpets, please!) Make up a batch of chocolate
pudding. Feed each other and wind up
having a food fight! Ideally, this is more fun in your birthday suits, then the pudding won't go to waste where it lands! Guaranteed for loads of
giggles between the two of you - take a shower-for-two after this one and wash each other's chocolate-flavored hair!
The thing is that women are all different. Well with the exception of chocolate. You can't go wrong there. Belgian is the way to go. And there
HAS to be a card. And not a funny one. Getting the right gift entails actually listening to your woman. I know, funny concept. You can play it
safe with the chocolates, flowers, etc but if you ARE listening you can do better. One year her computer wouldn't work with our wifi and I bought 50
feet of cable and hardwired her computer. She was ecstatic. There was a card too.
Well since I can't get anything physically, I opted for an e-card with an image of our favourite band (Metallica) and a short but sweet (and
hopefully amusing) message.
I'm worried though because neither of us have traditionally liked Valentine's Day because of being single for most of them before we got it together
and she's already pissed at havign to work tuesday in a place that will have cards, flowers, candy and balloons for a block at least.
I dont know what more I can do but I am taking my girlfriend for a 6 day vacation to Goa this Sunday. As we both are working tomorrow so we cant do
much tomorrow but I hope the beach and warm sun in a luxury resort will make it up.
Name a star after her. There are lots of directory services where you can do this, ranging from free, to quite pricey. While nobody can technically
name a star, it's named within that database, and it's more of the thought, than anything official.
I've also got an Edible Arrangement set up to be delivered to her at work for Valentine's Day though, and a nice card, and a box of her favorite
Dove truffle hearts. Got her some nice jewelry too.
I know this is a commercial holiday only, designed to make money for these industries, but that said, if your girl is the only one not getting
something...neither are you. (getting something).
I can't stress this enough.
DELIVERING THINGS TO YOUR GAL AT WORK IS ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA!
When they can "show off" at work, it's a knock out of the park. They feel loved and appreciated.
We're doing kind of a mini-vacation this weekend..ing to Islands of Adventure/Universal in Orlando. Kelly Clarkson will be in concert there also,
so my wife is looking forward to that. The vacation is kind of a combination Anniversary and Valentines present to ourselves.
