What are you guys getting your significant other for Valentines Day?
So far I've come up with nothing. My wife and I are at a point where we don't want useless items sitting around anymore than we already have, and she's always watching her weight and diet, so getting candy/junk food is out of the question. She did tell me about something she's been eyeing, but even she said "what would I do with it? It would be another "thing" just sitting around."
I'm a terrible person to ask, as we don't really do v-day in the traditional sense. Plus, my wife is super practical, so she doesn't want me to waste money on flowers that are just going to die in a few days. She just requests a mushy card.
On a related note, really I need to stop somewhere and find a mushy card.
Typically nothing. We're both quite practical. I mean, if there is something that we know each other wants or needs and it happens to fall near V-day, we'll use it as an excuse. But we're not at all into obligation gifting.
Not having kids, we go out to eat every weekend twice. That's our celebration of events.
The wife and I had our Valentines dinner out last Friday while our son was at the movies. I also spotted her some cash and a coupon to get some clothes. We're also having an informal pot luck kind of gathering with friends on Saturday, so I'm pretty much done for this year. It's been crazy with her family in, and heading back and my travel so it's been whatever we could squeeze in.
I really should go the gift card route when I do buy her something. Yeah, they're impersonal, but when I do attempt a clothing gift, I can tell she doesn't like it. I may as well be buying her the flowers that will die.
I hate V day, so I've decided I will hide behind the kid, He gets her a small gift & card While evil Dad got her nothing wink wink. We will probably go out to eat this weekend. But my general philosophy is that I rather do the celebration any other time of the year, when the prices aren't jacked up.
I was kidding, well, half, but yeah, I am. Her major one is the acts of service one with sprinkles of the others. I don't remember how I acquired that book so long ago, but I am very thankful that I did.
I was gonna say, you guys got all the time in the world for making "whoopie" with no kids to take up all your time or keep you from "expressing yourselves" as loudly and proudly as you please. Y'all should be at level 1000 by now...
