Valentines Day

I've been with my SO going on 3 years! We've talked many times about taking our relationship to the next level, and I'd like to get him something special for Valentines Day. Nothing to corny though, he isn't that type of guy. I asked him what he wanted and he said the game Mag for his PS3. If thats really what he wants then okay, but I thought I'd ask if anyone had some ideas that I could get him. Just to give you a little info about him; He is 21 years old, likes playing PS3 games, works all the time, and spends the rest of it at home. So ya he doesn't do much, neither do I lol

  • get him the mag and one of those cordless controllers or if her has one a rechargable docking station to go with the game mag. My DH is a gamer. lol

  • He told you what he wants (and will use). Why try to find something else to get him and waste your money? He might think you don't listen and may reconsider taking it to the next level. Guys hate women who don't listen when they ask a question and a man answers.

  • Definitely get him the game! He will use it over and over again, and he will truly love it. My SO is a gamer, too. I agree with the charging dock too, it's a pain in the butt to charge the controllers without one.

  • Not all guys are like that. getting something a little extra with what he said he wanted doesnt mean you didnt lesten. to my DH some to go with it (in the same spectrum, like gaming) just shows that little extra effort that I love him. And he has said that. i "am the only person that get me just want I want and puts that extra something special on it, I love you" Thats what my DH told me during x mas.

  • I agree with the other responders I would get him what He asked for. Remember Valentines Day is just a Holiday and even though Us women see it as a loving, compassionate and romantic day, does not mean that We need to be expecting such huge, collaborate things given to Us from our spouses! We do however need to appreciate what they give us, and not take for granted our lovers! So I would get him what He asked for and a nice simple card that say's I love you, and am very thankful to have you in My life! Will make your man very honorable and will give him good confidence in himself and in your relationship as well. I would even think about making a nice dinner for him as well, maybe one of his favorite dishes.

  • A little idea FYI You might want to consider the fact that most men wont tell you what they want for any Holiday or even birthday. They are very simple and down to earth and never do ask for much so I would definitely get him what He asked for since majority of men don't say. They like pretty much whatever they get from their significant other. Good luck and I know He will love your gift.

  • Thanks everyone!!! I think I'll go with the game, and throw in a few extra things I know he'll like as well.
