I always leave my husband notes in his lunches. He says even though it's not surprising anymore it's still a special part of his day he knows he gets to smile no matter what kind of day it is! I am the one who always buys the long mushy cards, but this time I got him one that says "do I want you to have a nice Valentines day.... Sex, please I mean yes please!" It kept him smiling for hours!!
My husband and I do celebrate Valentine's day between the kids basketball games and homework. We celebrate without spending a lot of money -- we usually exchange cards/candy. This year I made him a slide show on the computer re-stating all the reasons why I love him (this was huge for me as I am not too good with technology and I had to sync music to the slide show). My husband always surprises me with flowers throughout the year - I have never sent him flowers because he works at a secure building and flower deliveries can't be made there.
I've always bought df a card but this year I wrote a letter and made a "book" of love poems. He's gotten me flowers in the past but I don't like him spending the money on them on a holiday like this. Way overpriced. Lol
He sent me flowers once after we started dating but I screwed up and got mad because he didn't have s card or anything before I left for work. An hour after I got to work flowers were delivered which was way to quick to be last minute. Sigh. That night I was told never again would I get flowers again on Valentines day. I have learned to be more patient and wait until the holiday is over before I bitch. Hard lesson. LOL.
He just brought me home the Dunkin Donuts heart shaped donuts and coffee....
When we first got together he told me he has never gotten flowers before so I sent him a cake made out of flowers for his Birthday.
I bought him a card and explain why I fell for him in the beginning because sometimes I still wonder how I go so lucky with him. He's been wanting a cd so I got that for him from the kids and his other gift he'll get soon. Which is a new gun
I leave notes in my DH suitcase or backpack when he goes out of town which unfortunately is quite often. We always go out to eat and alternate who picks up the tab for V day. Instead if flowers he loves the fruit bouquets. They are yummy!
