Do men get Valentine's Day gifts?

Posted by   + Show Post
Seems to me like it's mainly a woman's holiday or for lovers, I don't know any men who go gaga for gifts. Am I wrong? Do you get your man gifts?

He usually doesn't get me a gift. I always get him one.
This year its candy, a t-shirt, and a gift card to a book store.

  Of course. Men love Gifts and to be remembered just like women do.  I even buy My DH Flowers, I have several times ( Big Birthdays) First time I bought him 2 dozen red Roses( years ago) He said, None of his friends ever received flowers. He knows he's special :-)  But I've never bought them on Valentines day, Not yet. Now we both prefer a rose bush for our yard then cut flowers. And he knows this, I want to see it all the time, not for a few days at the cost.  Pro Flowers online is good, I've used them several times very reasonable.

So ladies, if you want to surprise him some time, buy him flowers ( even walmart  sells reasonable bouquets under 6.00 I think)

And IF he doesn't buy you red roses. Buy them for yourself, and tell him they were delivered, from a secret admirer LOL That will make him THINK.

 I got him some sexy boxers, massage oils (we're low) so need to stock up whats a better time to do it.  And I'm making some Choc covered strawberries, choc popcorn ( for me ) and choc pretzels sticks.He just bought his New truck last week. I found him a USB and ipad holder for the truck.and a Gift card. He wants these special chrome exhaust pipes, but doesn't want to pay the price. He deserves them.

Plus, he gets "ME"  the full Detail in the Bedroom all night .. My DH is a romantic. Will have a romantic dinner with the works, and dance too. And some type of surprise, he knows I love surprises.

I got him a card from me, and one from the kids. I'm baking three of his favorites, putting them in containers and in a gift bag LOL. He'll like it...

 well even though it seems like im the only one who cares about getting a gift on valentines day...i still think that even though my hubb doesnt show it, he also wants to be recognized as my husband and my valentine...so thats why i get him something ....always to remind him that i may be his wife but he plays an important role as being my husband.......after all valentines day is about two people as a couple.....not only one person.......

DH doesn't want gifts.  But I do special things for him.  Like keeping the kids off him so he can play a video game for hours un-interrupted.  Or getting a sitter so he and I can spend some quality time in our new basement bar playing pool. 

Then again, I don't get big gifts, either.  We were married Feb 7.  So we do dinner on Feb 7, have a week of random fun nights, hang out Feb 14th, then go out Feb 15th and buy our favorite holiday themed candies on sale!
