Glancing Blow: If by this time in your relationship you need the help of others to tell you what would make her happy, then your relationship lacks intimacy. Something simple and lasting is best. A pair of earrings that you like is perfect. Women like talking with their friends and will enjoy say that you bought them for her.
ModernPrimitive01: get her involved with one billion rising the women against violence campaign. They big world wide get together is Valentine's day. She feels empowered and you look good for supporting her
Heist: Malcolm_Sex: There is no excuse for a grown man to not have the 20$ it costs for flowers.No, there is not. However, the "traditional" dozen roses on Valentine's day will run about $75. While I could easily afford $75 for flowers, I don't want to. You could find 1,000 more meaningful ways to spend that money. You could go out to dinner, or buy some nice wine, or that's gas money for a day trip to the beach on a warm weekend, or a couples massage; something actually romantic. My wife likes flowers, but she is mercifully practical enough to be just as outraged at V-Day price gouging as I am.
Private_Citizen: Coupons are fun, and a home cooked dinner can be romantic, but nothing gets more tail than diamonds.
Prevailing Wind: Have a page of make me a better man items
Malcolm_Sex: There is no excuse for a grown man to not have the 20$ it costs for flowers.
Kristoph57: Post it notes. Put them in places she'll discover later. Hand write sexy things about how she smells, looks, makes you feel.Do something romantic for the evening, & let her find the notes. Then reap the long term benefits of a little effort.
StreetlightInTheGhetto: ModernPrimitive01: get her involved with one billion rising the women against violence campaign. They big world wide get together is Valentine's day. She feels empowered and you look good for supporting herThat... could actually be a good idea. Especially if you pack a picnic lunch and go somewhere nice and free before or after./spent a Valentine's Day 4 years ago with my boyfriend above a Vagina Monologue performance (he volunteered to run the lighting)//we're still together///still not really the biggest VM fan, but some friends of his were really passionate about putting on the production so he volunteered, only guy in the cast or crew... that was pretty damn attractive in and of itself
StaleCoffee: a bit more creative than cheap jewelry or a singing hallmark card
Lando Lincoln: Malcolm_Sex: There is no excuse for a grown man to not have the 20$ it costs for flowers.What's the excuse to use '20$' instead of '$20?'
Naesen: Get her favorite chocolate flavor, and some berries and bananas and pineapples. Seen an edible arrangement? That's what you're doing, and you're going to spend no more than ten bucks doing it. Get some lettuce, a cheap vase, a box of strawberries, chocolate (I found that Hershey's dark, milk chocolate, and cookies and cream work real well), two pots that nest inside each other, a stove, water, and kebab sticks. Clear some space in your freezer.Clean fruits, put water in lower pot, medium heat. Place upper pot in lower pot so that water is at least touching the bottom of the upper pot. Grab a fork and stick the berries, and kebab berry on the end. Melt chocolate in upper pot, dip and roll berries USING FORK, and then set berries in freezer using kebab as a brace against other things (you don't want the berries to touch your freezer or you'll get a funny flat side that looks bad). Once you've done enough berries and chocolate to your liking, repeat with other fruits. NOTE: IF THE CHOCOLATE STARTS TO "CAKE": you need to turn down the heat a tad and clean out the chocolate pan and just use new chocolate. At that phase it has begun to dehydrate and really is too much of a pain in the ass to save.Next, as berries are cooling (don't let them freeze...) put filler, beit small beads or gravel or whatever the hell you want about halfway up your vase. Take lettuce and neatly form it in the upper third. You need a little space to allow for lettuce compression from placing in sticks. Once berries are cooled, arrange in whatever you think looks pretty (if you're not going to be fancy, arrange strawberries to look like a bouquet of roses, and insert different colored fruits in between bunches of 3-5 strawberries). Flare the lettuce around the edges of the vase to make it prettier, and take a small ribbon (optional) and tie to vase. Insert sappy card or note, and BAM! You've now got a decent Edible Arrangement knockoff for about $10. (~$13 if you get pineapples or marshmallows) ...
Uniquely Common: Blow Job/why does valentines day just have to be about the girl?
mrswood: Sure, I would encourage my husband to give me a homemade gift if he didn't like bj's. But he likes them and I like jewelry.
Arthurgoboom: Hand-drawn valentine card and oral until she passes out.
Nurglitch: LadySusan: God Is My Co-Pirate: Sure it's the thought that counts. And the thought in this case was to ask Fark in the hopes that you'd get an answer other than "buttsex?"I'm sure that all answers will be thoughtful and so romantic we'll all die from the cuteness.You're doing it wrong. First, find out what she wants. Then give it to her, you broke-ass cheapskate.
