    What type of Valentines gifts have you ever given, and received?

    What are you giving out this year? What are you hoping to receive?

    mommytotwp, I think we're very traditional. Most of what we've shared have been books, chocolates, and flowers. I'm the sentimental one, I usually write him a "state of the union" letter as a Valentine. He's the practical (when it comes to romance) one, so he usually gets inspired to cook or bake something special.

    I'd love it if a little of my sentimental side would rub off on my husband. I'm a sucker for things like slippers, scarves, gloves, and nightgowns. He happens to be a talented craftsman, and I'd love a piece of jewelry he made. At least he lavishes his attentions and talents on the little ones, on that much we're agreed.

    Well I don't have a girlfriend this year but I usually buy them roses and Jewelry. I have found that you usually can't go wrong buying jewelry.

    My Hubby usually gets me some flowers and sometimes he will pick me out a sweater/shirt or some chocolate (my favorite cheesy). This year I bought my Hubby a few shirts (he has lost about 30 pounds over the past year) and a new frying pan lol he loves to cook! I buy my kiddies some little chocolates and we always get an ice cream cake to have on Valentines Day!

    My wife always gets...roses, cards, balloons, stuffed animal, chocolates, a piece of jewelry, and a poem written by me. I generally have the roses sent to her at work.

    My little girl (now little girls since we have a new addition) gets flowers (the oldest likes sunflowers and carnations), cards, balloons, stuffed animal, chocolates, and a piece of jewelry.

    Then i either make a spacial candle light meal (depends on day of week) or i take them all out to someplace nice.

    I couldn't resist when I saw this thread....
    I don't really go for flowers, and I'm on a diet so the chocolate is out for right now. But I do love animals. So my sweet Hubby took me to the All Maryland Reptile Expo for a Valentine's Day treat, and bought me two corn snakes. It's even nicer of him, because he doesn't really like reptiles that much.

    The kids will each get a small boc of chocolates and maybe a new dvd. Hubby and I were not going to do anything but last night he surprised me with dinner reservations aboard the boat Philadelphia Belle for Monday night. I am excited... I will get him a card but not sure what else.
