Not feeling romantic this year. Got any ideas for Valentine's day gifts?

Usually I already have some jewelry or scanties to give Mrs. Pusser for Valentine's Day but this year I just haven't been motivated to go shopping.

What can I get fast? What are you getting your loved one(s)?

I heard somewhere that Teddy Bears holding hearts are popular and easy to find.

A nice dinner out, bottle of expensive wine at home, and a movie of your woman's choice to snuggle up to would probably be good. That's what I'm doing.

I got my wife an original movie poster (via ebay) to one of her favorite movies - "Before Sunrise". Along with a nice frame to put it in. I'll get some flowers to go with it. (She buys lots of DVDs, she's the real movie buff).

Normally I go a little more typical - last year it was a relatively cheap diamond heart pendant ($250). But I'm trying to keep her guessing. Can't be too predictable.

Both me and my wife work a lot and never can seem to find the time to be together. So that is what I'm getting her this year. We have reservations for dinner at a local steakhouse, then a movie, followed by a night at a 5 star hotel that is complete with a jacuzzi As far as possessions, she has pretty much anything she could want, so I figure giving her something like this would be a real nice getaway for us.

Make a reservation for her at a nice bed & breakfast.

After she leaves, you can head to Vegas baby

A day at a spa, for both of you, or just for her

Hmmmm. Thanks for the ideas thus far.




A women's group she's involved with is having a Valentine's dinner event on the 17th that we have to attend. So that's probably partly why I haven't been thinking too much about dinner out with just the two of us.

A surprise diner at a special restaurant. Maybe a restaurant that's special to the both of you because of your first date (like I'm doing). Or a romantic restaurant.

Do exactly the things you did on your most special date/day together. Make it even more unforgettable.

Buy a whole bunch of roses, hide in couples around the house. So she finds a few all the time. Then keep some to let them dry (hang them on the wall upside down).

Ice skating, even if you can't do it, it's out of the ordinary, so it'll be fun.

You can surprise her with tickets to something at a later date (best done at diner).

I've tons more
(I've the tendency to make my girlfriend's friends jealous for the things I do for her, and it doesn't even have to cost anything, use your imagination)

Most of us used to be like that too. Then we got married.

Lets see how you are doing after you're with her for 14 Valentine's Days.

For me, I loved it when my husband told me to dress up but wouldn't tell me anything more.

He took me to Morton's and then we went to see a play.

but what was her reaction ? - if I were a woman I'd personally be offended. I don't know, that's just my take on a present like this - it just doesn't seem very romantic.

Bring her a bunch of red roses, a heart-shaped box of chocolates and a piece of jewelry that you think she'd like. Shoot, if you shop at the right place, they may even gift wrap it for you.

Are you sure that's the sort of "dressing up" he meant?

I like the spa idea.

I'm in the same boat. Sometimes you just aren't into it. I feel like we just got off Christmas, then her birthday is two weeks after Valentines, then our anniversary is not to far off. I'm scratching my head this year for what to do for all these special days.
