Oh, and if you are still in doubt, heed Oscar Wilde's words:

'I have the simplest tastes - I am ALWAYS satisfied with the best'

I don't want anything for Valentine day. Too generic!

I am enough spoiled the rest of the year, no need of a day to tell me what I already know!

Re: Present - Valentine's Day (13th Feb)

I have the same problem every year. MG's son-in-law thinks it is all about making money and he refuses to take part in that. Now that's almost as romantic as buying a transmission LOL

How can I get it to him that just a cute little card with some nice words would do without having to spell it out for him?

..first of all you start by not trying to get him do anything...he's not a dog....and second of all it's your MG's son-in-law and technically none of your busines I'd say....but that's just me.

Re: Present - Valentine's Day (13th Feb)

Back to the real topic - a guy who cooks me a really nice meal AND cleans the kitchen afterwards without ever asking for help. That would be Valentines!!

Variations on that - a guy who takes the day off secretly to clean the house from top to bottom, before cooking dinner, while the wife is at work all day. And arranges a babysitter for the kids (if applicable) would be a HERO
