Karan, I've been asked that question so many times, I'm thinking he could at least charge for "training" other guys to be more like him.

My husband gave me a documentary last year- about poverty in pre-WWII Ireland. How romantic.

And the year before, he got me Godiva chocolates, very nice. But he also bought our 5 year old daughter Godivas as well!! I was astonished that he would get a child $30 worth of fine chocolates when I'm sure she would've loved a Hershey bar just as well.

Last year, my boyfriend got me a a couple of cans of an energy drink, two cans of chunk chicken breast and a small stuffed puppy. I thought that he must have lost his mind, but I didn't say anything since he was cooking me dinner. He later gave me a gold bracelet and laughed about me giving him the evil eye when I opened the other gifts. As it turns out, he got the stuffed puppy from the jewelry store, and the other stuff was just supposed to be funny. Gee, I wonder what mirth awaits me this year.

I'm hoping hubby will keep up his romantic streak. For Christmas, he bought a little photo album and took all the pictures that people had taken at our wedding and given us doubles of and put them in. He said he had to move them several times to put them in chronological order!

I'll try to think back for the weird ones, but I think I erased them all out of my memory.

This morning, before he slipped out to take the train, my hubby placed a red gift bag next to my coffee cup. Imagine my suprise when I opened the box inside, and found diamond earrings!

Later in the day, I got a delivery of beautiful flowers in a gorgeous planter that he picked out himself! He sure has come a long way.

Not sure I have ever gotten anything but a card from my DH. My birthday is right before V day, so getting flowers twice in one month is not something he would do. Plus he only gets the flowers at Aldis, so I guess I am not worth the $4.50 twice in the same month. Maybe this year will be better.

When we were dating my husband gave me a key for Valentine's Day. He said it signified that I had the key to his heart. Then he pulled out the actual keys to his Miata, and said that since I had the key to his heart, I might as well have the keys to the car I loved. After that he proposed. aaaahh!

I had been dating a guy for a few years, and Valentine's Day was fast approaching. He said he had something really wonderful, that I would love! Ooooooh, the anticipation of waiting for an engagement ring.
So he brings me this pretty big box. What was it? A talking GLOBE!

Call me crazy, but I LOVE resets!
Yes, even cosmetic resets.

Wow Jan, any guy who would give the keys to his car to his girlfriend was in it for the long haul!! How very romantic.

Since I have been married twice, I want to show you all a comparison between my first hubby on Valentine's Day and my second, current hubby of 15 years. For our first VDay after marriage, hubby #1 gave me an iron skillet. I could have hit him in the head with it, but I didn't!! He even told me how useful it would be when we went camping out...CAMPING OUT!!! I knew immediately he had married the wrong Hilton girl!!

On our first VDay with my dear sweet hubby #2, I was on a business trip in Nashville. He sent two dozen roses to my hotel PLUS silk PJs to die for. When my flight arrived that evening at DFW, he met the plane and took me to the French restaurant where we married. When desert arrived, they placed a box next to my cheesecake. The box contained the most beautiful diamond watch I had ever seen. The guy is a keeper and it just got better from there!!!

Hehehe...Nora, I really can't remember the cheesecake, but I do remember how in love I was with this old guy!!! The first was a really BIG mistake, but I do remember feeling how great it felt to finally be married to a great guy who understood I would never go CAMPING.

A guy I was just getting to know came out of the bathroom wearing a pair of tiny pair of underwear that said..."Home of the WHOPPER"
I told him to get his Little Crystal back in his pants.
He left...what a gift...I never saw him again.

Actually, Ashley, that probably was a great gift. You found out early what he was like, and you didn't waste another minute of your life on him. Many women wish they could say that!

I don't recall ever receiving a Valentine's gift from my ex-husband. And he pretty much sucked at birthday, anniversary, and Christmas gifts, too. Once when I was recovering from surgery and still in the hospital I complained that my feet were always cold. he brought me a pair of vinyl mules with heels (that I couldn't keep on my feet) and bragged they had only been $1 at Big Lots. Don't know why I didn't divorce him sooner.

Now, the last two Valentine's Days I have received gorgeous bouquets at work from a guy that I have only met in person once. We've been exchanging e-mails daily for almost two years, since his sister introduced us. Too bad we live half-way across the country from each other. We may never discover if we'd really like each other's company as much as we enjoy the e-mails.

Jnanne, the guy should jump on a plane and bring you some flowers in person!

Jnanne, this guy would jump on the next plane to bring you flowers if you would send him one of your baked goods packages. You know what they say about the way to a man's heart!!

I regularly send him baked goods. So far he's gotten brownies, cookies (chocolate chip, sugar decorated by Olivia, peanutbutter, chocolate oatmeal no-bake, etc.), banana bread, sourdough bread, chocolate dessert bread, pumpkin bread, spice cake in heart shapes--thanks, Laura for the pans, and I don't remember what else. Guess he doesn't feel he needs to come and get it!!

He tapes sci-fi for me since I don't have TV at my house, and sends a package every few weeks. He always includes something special for Olivia, whether a snack, books, DVD's or pink cowgirl boots. He sure seems like the perfect guy to me.

Hmmmmm...I think we need to work on the sister who introduced you. Does she live near you? Perhaps you could make her a goody box?

If you don't have a TV, how do you watch the tapes and DVDs he sends?

Any guy who would send your daughter pink cowgirl boots is worth the trouble to "tie" down!!! If he sends Olivia a pony to go with those boots, you need to propose to HIM!!!!

The sister, a good friend from church, is applying for jobs in Houston (where they grew up)! If she and/or her husband find jobs there I will certainly miss them and the kids.

I have a TV, I just have no reception. I live in the middle of nowhere and can't get anything without cable, but since I switched to a job with a $4000 paycut, I dropped cable, cell phone, etc. to make ends meet. He keeps my sci-fi fix out of the withdrawal stage. When it is between seasons he sends me tapes of his favorite shows that I never watched when they were new, like Firefly and Farscape.

And my dad runs the midwestern region of the save the mustang program. He owns about 18 mustangs and has about 150 at the facility. Please--no pony for my child!! She has good enough access as it is.
