I bought my own present.

I bought my own present for Valentine's Day! Hubby and I share all of our finances anyways. So I just picked out the cell phone I wanted and ordered it. I bought him a new Xbox 360 but I knew he would love that. I would rather pick out something I know I will love then let him pick something I might not like! He took the kids to the store and let them each pick something for me, one got me a stuffed animal and one got me some chocolates. That effort makes me happy, so I would rather order a present I love and will use than have him waste $200 on something I hate! He was OK with this too, because he hates shopping for me. He's good with the little sweet stuff like flowers and candy, but not expensive purchases.

    I totally get doing what you did - especially if it makes things easier on him :)

    We don't buy gifts on V-day for each other; we usually just stay cozy at home, but HE wanted to 'mix it up' this year so we're going out to my favorite restaurant for sushi and I did make chocolate-covered strawberries this morning before heading to work.

    I think it's sweet he took the kids out to get you something.

     Lol. We just go shopping together. He sometimes will pick up a surprise for me on his way home from work, and I make him whatever he wants for dinner. This weekend, we'll be getting a sitter and going to the mall and out for dinner :)

    Shopping together is a good idea too. Maybe we will do that for our anniversary lol We went to the kids' favorite restaurant tonight, and we will also be getting a sitter Saturday and going out to dinner and to the hot tubs alone. We only get to go out alone twice a year, Valentine's Day and our anniversary.
