Now as for me, Valentine's Day is usally something of a let down. The media (florists, candy makers, and greeting card companies) build up Valentine's Day so that we all expect a dozen long stemmed red roses, a sappy card, and a heart shaped box full od soft centers. But really...what are we after? Just the thought that they thought of you enough to find something you could brag to your girlfriends about.
Last year I had this theory that I would do for my Hubba Bubba what I'd like for him to do for me. I sent him a dozen cards (one for every year we'd been together) that were postmarked from sappy places like Love, Valentine, and Sweetheart. Fresh flowers on the table. We went to a chocolate festival. He...paid for the chocolates the kids and I ate at the festival. It's just not his thing.
I think that creative gifts are the best. The chocolates and roses are great, but the inventive stuff scores more points. (Yes, I know no one is keeping score). Here are some fun ideas for your special someone ::
Bubble bath with a dozen rubber ducks, locket key chain, movie night with all the treats, dinner for two.
Now it's time for you to share your woes or brag about your man! What did you get for Valentine's Day?
