Valentine's Day is a holiday for couples and every year ladies usually get flowers and chocolates on this day. For me that is nice and I am sue that woman like it. I was thinking about how just about every year its the same thing. Chocolates,flowers,dinner a movie,teddy and a gift. The only thing that changes is the gift. We set a small budget for hoiday gifts/birthday's etc. It is $20 per person. It isn't much but it is enough for someone to get something decent. As many if you know I think when you buy a gift the goal is to get something that is useful this way you get your money's worth and they get something good. My wife one year got me art supplies. I sometimes like to draw it's not often but when I do I do it for hours. Another year I got fishing gear and I want to keep up with her as far as thinking outside the box. So this year I know she has been wanting to get some computer speakers the last ones died and they took up a lot of space on her desk. A few days ago our youngest accidentally broke her earphones. that she uses instead of speakers. So my plan is to get her the speakers and a new headset with a built in microphone.She is going to love it nothing makes her happier than things she can actually use. What if any Valentine's Day plans do you have? Do you do anything that isn't so traditional. Maybe something you and someone you do something different with or special to you both?

That's a very nice way to celebrate Valentines Day. Since I am a singlemom, I think me and the kids will go on a picnic.

Picnic with the kids is good too we always have the kids no sitters Its hard including them in everything and still trying to make it adult enough for us.

@lokisdad I think if you are married, it's better to have a real date with your spouse without the kids. But sometimes it can be impossible to do.

@cherriefic yes there sadly is no such thing for us no sitters that we could leave the kids with that we would feel comfortable with. Some too old would only do so in an emergency,others not good with kids and we don't want strangers, so we go nowhere without them and if we do its one at a time.

Flowers really are a waste of money they die fast. Maybe a potted flower.I gave my wife one of the fake bendable flowers we thought it was a good compromise. She gets a flower and I don't give her something that is going to die fast and waste my money,

@salonga that's the best way to give flowers they last way longer i think its a bummer to watch them wilt before your eyes.

I don't currently have a husband or boyfriend but when I did, we usually went out to dinner and maybe a movie or go out dancing.
