"If your man loves you, he'd buy you expensive jewelry. If you're not getting something expensive for valentine's day, maybe you should start looking for a man who will buy you things!"

The funniest tie-ins for valentine's day I've heard this year were:
1. Tanning salon: "Getting a tan for valentines day??" WHY????
2. Puppy store. "This puppy is the best valentines day gift I could have received!!!"

$14 for 2 dozen roses at Sam'sClub.

Bought them last Friday and they still look fine. (friday before last I bought 2 doz for the same price, which lasted a week before droopin so since the 3rd of Feb, my sweetie has been oohing and ahhhhing over her flowers all at a total cost of $28)

YMMV, but I'd sooner shoot the bastard attempting to rape me over the V-Day cost of a few roses, than pay'em.....

A couple dozen chocolate covered strawberries in an arrangement from Edible Arrangements. About $55 out the door and she'll be pissed I spent that much.

I don't celebrate it at all. Church pulled the feast day in '69, so there's nothing to celebrate for me.


I don't do Hallmark Holidays. "Buy stuff becuase we want you to buy our stuff!" Blech.

Haven't had a female to leech off for Valentine's Day yet.


I still don't get how a Roman teacher who got executed and had a student write him a letter started a crass commercial holiday around Hollywood romance.
Link Posted: 2/13/2006 9:30:34 AM EDT
We went to a formal dinner Saturday night. Cost was about $80. Other than cards, we agreed that that would be our celebration for this holiday.
Link Posted: 2/13/2006 9:31:20 AM EDT
For my wife and daughter, between the jewelry, cards, dinner and whatnot, it'll set me back $300.

They're worth it.

I made 50 cents!

We're having a singles/we hate V-day party with a $5 white elephant gift. Bought a Chipotle gift card for $5 and they had a promo going on where you can bring the receipt back for a free burrito ($5.50), which I'll be cashing in tonight.
Link Posted: 2/13/2006 9:34:15 AM EDT
$0 so far..

My gf made the idea that we wouldnt buy anything for each other this holiday, but instead we may go out to dinner and pay for each others meals... Of course I said sure


I got off EASY

My wife fobids the purchase of 50.00 a dozen roses on valentines. That said she does request that the same 50.00 is spread out through the year on roses. No Jewlery either, "They jack up the prices for valentines day".
Link Posted: 2/13/2006 9:36:50 AM EDT
2 doz roses and a card purchased last sat.

Gave her 1 doz sat. night and the others in the refig outside for tomorrow.

24.59

I spend more on lunch somedays.

She doesn't expect you to watch it with her, does she? I know the kind of movies my girl likes are a tax on my sanity that can't be measured in monetary value.he
Even if she tells you she doesn't want anything for Valentines day, you should get her a bouquet anyway and send it into her place of work so she will feel appreciated in front of her girlfriends. Trust me, speaking from experience, it works wonders. She won't be able to wait to pay you back. hty.gif

$45 in food supplies

It's the latest Zorro movie. We saw it together and we both liked it. So if she expects me to watch it with her again that would be fine with me. I don't mind at all looking at Cathrine Zeta-Jones for a couple hours.

When is Valentine's Day anyway... I gotta get my wife something.

The usual $3.99 for a card and a rose from the front yard. Oh yeah, I also write her a love poem every year... after 16 years I'm getting pretty good at it. I'll also make breakfast for her in the morning.

I think its neat you guys are buying your honey's something special. Things have been hectic around my house so it won't be too romantic but I'm making my husband BBQ steaks and shrimp [his request], toss salad, home made rolls and pie for desert.

No gifts.

About $50 total.

$35 flowers for my mom
$15 flowers/candy for my 3 nieces

$70 plus tax for severed vegetable reproductive organs and whatever it costs for some decent chocolate.

The sad part? Pie is not in this equation
Link Posted: 2/13/2006 11:32:16 AM EDT
My wife worked at a florist's for several years and saw the light...

So, I will be spending 0.00

She gets a kiss, a hug, a love letter, and she prefers it that way!
