Hey everybody, I'm sure this could be a thread that could help some people out, including myself. What are some good, original ideas for gifts and dates on Valentines day? <BR> <BR>I'm trying to come up with things that can last a little longer than flowers and chocolate. My girl really likes incense sticks to burn and coffee, so I may try and get some stuff like that.

If you don't have someone that cleans your(her) home....that.... <BR> <BR>Set up someone to come into her house/apartment and clean once a week(every 2 weeks, whatever) for the next year.... Best gift you could ever give her...

I had to laugh about this very subject. My daughter was watching the morning news with me looking for school closings due to snow. While we were watching the news, a Walgreens ad came on advertising a Valentines personnal shopper. Follow the link - <a href="http://www.walgreens.com/valentines" target="_blank">www.walgreens.com/valentines</a> <BR> <BR>Now you can shop for her on your drive home from work. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by flackpack on February 11, 2010)

His/Her massage at some spa or other massage place.

EJ, that's a great idea...how much would something like that cost?

bendow 02-11-2010 9:00 AM

what the hell guys? I need ideas too, but how about some ideas for guys who aren't highrollers and don't want to spend over $100 on a gift. I called about the maid service...that was $530 for 6 months. Adam's link didn't have anything in San Antonio I can't afford to throw down $1000+ for those vacations.

Ben - Just do a one time maid service. If she is like most women she would really benefit from and enjoy that.

psudy 02-11-2010 9:09 AM

Ben, you live in San Antonio? Just go to home depot. There should be a large group hanging around the front. Ask them if there wives need any work.

I don't know.. I would hate something like that. I would much rather that money be used for a vacation, a concert, etc. <BR> <BR>A massage is a good idea, if she's into that sort of thing. <BR> <BR>I've, in the past, framed pictures for valentines day, given tickets to an event, bought a massage (probably his favorite).. <BR> <BR>What about a manicure/pedicure?

bendow 02-11-2010 9:11 AM

That's an idea Eubanks. <BR> <BR>Paul, I would like them to clean the house, not clean out her jewlery box

psudy 02-11-2010 9:15 AM

lol, yeah I hear ya.

dixiebmxer 02-11-2010 6:19 PM

^^^I hate you... <BR> <BR>and I hate Valentine's day...it's a giant marketing scam

My husband is normally on a guys trip to Big Sur for camping and surfing this weekend and I can't remember the last time we celebrated V-day. This year we will be in Fresno with family and may give the 3-year old some candy. Romantic, eh? Yeah we are not so much the commercial holiday couple so no help there.

wakeboardingdad 02-12-2010 1:31 PM

It is a marketing scam ben. I'll boycott it if you will. :P <BR> <BR>(I am going by Walgreens on the way home though. Just in case you bail.)

brettw 02-15-2010 8:57 AM

Wifey got a fancy new mixer for V-day.<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/4387/775082.jpg" alt="Upload">
