Present - Valentine's Day (13th Feb)

Hi all,

Valentine's Day is approaching and I would like to buy something new for my wife.

Guys: Which gift will you buy this year to your girl?
Girls: What do you want this year???

Cheers
marmsg

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

Yes - I definitely wouldn't want anything on the 13th!

However, on the 14th I would like: a nice bunch of flowers. Yes, really, I know it seems old fashioned and predictable, but I just love flowers and I love to receive them. Don't have to be roses (in fact I'm not that keen on roses) doesn't have to be gigantic or anything, but a lovely bunch, with cellophane and bows and not delivered, given in person by my loved one.

I absolutely hate hate hate getting underwear. I always would rather choose my own and try it on. Always. (Even the sexy stuff .)

I would love to have a nice, cheery rag rug - for the living room.

I don't do Valentine's Day presents ... sometimes she gets breakfast in bed or (if she's really lucky!) a sleep-in.

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

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!
