I have no idea what I'll be receiving...

...but I'll probably get my boyfriend a box of candy. I'm also planning on giving him a framed photo of him, me and my son all together that was taken not long ago. He's not my son's biological father, but he's been in his life since before he was born. They're crazy about each other, lol.

Oh goodness! I haven't even thought of Valentine's Day yet. lol DH and I usually just have a nicer meal at home or do take-out Chinese food. We don't buy each other presents or cards.

I'm sure your girlfriend will love anything you send her. Packages in the mailbox are always so much fun! :vibes:

We dont do anything. Never have. Its Christmas then his bday is in January and mine is in March so we just kind of ignore Valentines Day. I do buy the kids a little trinket though. We celebrate the anniversary of our first date though in August with a nice dinner.

We aren't going to get each other anything. Except I might get him a small box of candy. And make a yummy dinner.

For the kids, I'll get them each a small stuffed animal and for Wesley...a small box of candy.

I really don't like valentines day, my grandfather passed away on that day when I was in highschool.
My mom passed away on Valentines day too so I totally understand how you feel.

Not sure whats going to happen on V day this year with me. I've been seeing a guy I work with on and off for almost a year and its mostly been off, just recently started to be on again. So I'm guessing nothing but will be pleasantly surprised if I get anything. Likewise, I haven't decided if I'm going to get him anything or not, if I do, it will just be a card.

I love to give presents even if I don’t receive anything. It can be bought or done by myself or combined. Even if we agree not to get each other anything, I know he’ll buy me something (at least a card). So I do the same)):flowers:
Usually I like to buy unique presents. This year I’ve bought one of the best valentines day gifts for him online. He likes travelling so I’ve found a nice Message in a Bottle. It looks amazingly!

We don't buy each other gifts but we do have a quirky tradition I love: we go out for ice cream at the one DQ that's open year round, and we eat our soft-serve in the car like it's mid-july even though it's freezing outside! I love love love our V-day tradition!

Since it falls on a Monday this year, he will be working. I will make him a card and give it to him that day. Diva gets a small box of chocolates.

The Saturday before, OldMan and I will go to Sonics (finally got one near us!) and get shakes, sit in the car, listen to the radio and act like teenagers :hubba:

I usually make him a card, he usually buys me one and we have a nice dinner together at home and make googly eyes at each other from across the table. If anything changed this usual scenario I'd be shocked, lol. Go ahead, shock me with some flowers or a plant & see if I can take it. :D

That's the spirit V!

I'm not sure yet exactly what will go down here. Some years we celebrate it and some years we just say Happy Valentine's Day and go on with our day as our anniversary is just a couple of weeks away.

School is closed here this year. Not sure why. So I am thinking of maybe just doing a special breakfast with the kids (shape the pancakes like hearts or dye the oatmeal red or carve we love you in the butter ect.). We'll do the whole set the table and take our time thing.

I may write the kids and hubby personal letters letting them know how special they are to me as well and mail them or put them by thier plates at dinner. After dinner hubby and I will probably retreat to our room.

I have personal issues with the holiday but I give my daughters a little something each year and I enjoy that our town, Loveland, decorates. They have these wooden hearts that people can pay to have personalized and then they are posted all over the city. Its fun to read them.

I usually make a "red" breakfast. Last year it was cinnamon rolls. This year, I think I'll make red pancakes and then use my metal cookie cutters to make them heart shape.

I also got them all (kids and DH) a small heart shape box of chocolates. It's like 99cents a box.
