    When the wife says she dosen't want anything special for valentines day next Tuesday,you better run to the nearest Flower shop,jewelry store,or gourmet chocolate store.Wal-mart doesn't count.

    Who invented it anyways??
    I thought that was what anniverserays were for?

    Nope, Anniversaries are for making sure you don't forget about the ball and chain attatched to your ankle and showing them how much they are worth.

    Valentines day is to make sure that they get their chocolate fixes and quota of flowers.

    Couple of ideas for ya

    Vermont Teddy Bears
    Day of Beauty at a Spa
    Gift Basket of favorite Items

    things that are NOT good ideas

    lingerie *(they want to try it on to make sure it fits/looks good on them)*
    household appliances

    I saw on the Simpsons where Homer bought Marge a Bowling Ball with his name on it for Valentines day once...that probably isnt one of the better choices either;)
    Sounds crazy, but Im getting my wife some redoing of one of our rooms with hardwood flooring...trust me, she hates that room and it will go over well.

    You guys are kidding right. I hope so cause if your not, you just throw another iron in the fire for me.
    I thought V-Day was so the girl could give something to the guy.
    Every year my wife gives me something. Now your telling me I have to give her
    something back. I thought all this time she was mad on V-Day cause she couldn't afford an expensive gift for me. I guess this year I will share my box of chocolates with her. :sad:

    Simple solution to a simple problem. This can be used on any and all occasions where gift giving is expected.
    Go to the local store/mall and buy an expensive anything in a super small size (OK, not a bra) and give it to her with a heart felt card. She will love the fact that you remembered in the first place AND got her a card AND thought she was that small and dainty. It gets better, now she can return it guilt free for what she really wanted in the first place AND she has to leave the house to exchange it so you get a little alone time with your real good buddies, Mr. TV and Mr. Remote. Inviting Mr. Beer is optional.

    MAN! I feel sorry for you guys!
    Have yall been married too long or don't care. I evjoy getting things for Tammy. She rarely asks for anything other than me to re-do a room or something.
    I'll be getting her something totally frivalous. Just so she knows I didn't forget.
    I kinda feel sorry for you. Only time she really "gets on me" is when I've screwed up.

    Not being married, I guess i don't have all of the same worries. All I've ever been asked is just to be there, and to make a fantastic dinner. No fancy gifts, no flowers, nothing out of the ordinary.

    I am glad there is a day specially set aside to show her I love her! She shows me everyday! Heck she will most likely tell me I should go fishing after the brunch we traditionally do!

    Well, I got my husband a SwissCard (it's like a Swiss Army knife, but is actually a plastic card, about the size of a credit card, that he can keep in his wallet. I'm hoping for a silver bracelet I saw in a boutique here in town.;)

    ray dude your being subjected to the oldest trick in the book!

    take my word for it

    flowers jewelry a nice restaraunt and a big box of chocalates
    switch the order around but those are definently what its gonna take to get you MARRIED.

    then after she marrys you then the REAL fun begins .

    :p
