    rnch you're too funny. It takes a man to be touchy-feely-mushy and mean it while contained in a man's perspective and expression of it.

    Ok, so how about some reasonably priced valentine's day gift ideas?

    About the only suggestion so far that I can afford is BodyWork4's.
    Except that my partner doesn't like bourbon or chocolate. If I go with that gift, he's going to wonder what the gift was, compared to any other night.

    Hmmm. Well if I was in a relationship with someone I would get them something useful yet thoughtful, pleasureable yet reasonable. Something they can could enjoy more then just once because of this pressuring day known as Valentine's Day.

    I say get him a card with some money in and plan a weekend getaway.

    So, I'm pretty universally awful at nearly all gifting occasions. My best ideas are stolen from others and used over and over (though with different people) until burned out.

    This year, I'm going to see a guy I have started to date in his home town (he's been to mine a few times). He's a really sweet guy and I want to do something, even though I am generally not a believer in Valentines day (my ex and I never did anything -- after the first 3 years together -- because we both couldn't stand "hallmark holidays").

    He has often said he likes a certain picture of me he has in his iPhone, so I was going to get that printed professionally and framed. Then I thought instead, since I have the picture on my computer, I'd get him a digital picture frame and put that pic and a pic of us on it and promise to take a picture of us each time we meet and add it to the frame.

    Then, for the sweet/corny/traditionalist in me, I went to a local chocolate place (that makes them on site) and got a small fuzzy heart shaped box full of things I know he likes. Yeah, it's almost cliche, but it's good stuff and falls into my "a few small cute gifts" approach.

    Fortunately, he knows I'm a dope in these areas, so I'm hoping that even if this comes across as colossally lame, he'll smile. Worst case, we'll take turns eating the chocolates off each other.

    Call me selfish but I like to give gifts that I would like my man to have.

    For example, specific colognes that I like which he wears, or should wear. This year I bought him a few pairs of Diesel underwear. I know how good he will look in them!

    Am I so wrong?

    Of course I get the usually stuff also; candy, cards, flowers, sex. Ya know!

    For Valentines, I will give my man a portrait of me. His never seen my artwork so this is a great opportunity to give him a gift of not only my artwork, but me smiling.

    Believe me, when I smile its forced. I have to take a staple to my face to keep it up.

    he's not really into sweets or chocolates.

    perhaps a bottle of stoli and a fresh bottle of jungle juice poppers. icon_cool.gif

    we both could enjoy that gift. icon_lol.gif

    Nothing. Neither of us are into valentines day. We did it last year because it was our first. We are just going to put the money we would spend towards any trips we plan to go on this summer.
