What is everyone getting or doing for their SO/DH/BF for Valentines day?

Mine is planning a surprise for me and I'm limited on money since I've been unemployeed for two months. He has told me he wants nothing but I wanna do something.

Any your ideas?

 I am limited on funds also and have a boyfriend that is impossible to shop for. Cook him a meal, or bake something that will keep in the refridgerator so there could be a slim chance of hiding it.  That way all shopping is done at the grocery store and that can be his "surprise".

I heard from my boyfriend two weeks ago this very quote: "I wish that I had atleast 30 pairs of underwear so I wouldn't have to do laundry as much."... if I lived with him, I'd do his laundry.. but I'll do what's second best and buy him his treasured underwear and bake him a pecan pie. *Shrug*

Good luck!

I was just asking another mommy if she had any advice because I'm clueless!!! Usually I do a picture of me but I can only give him so many pics of me! haha

Not to mention he is absolutely impossible to shop for (I think that speaks for a lot of men though). They're not easy like us where they can get us chocolates and flowers or take us out to a restaurant or something. So I'm curious to find out what everyone is going to do for their hubby's!

For Veteran's day, I dressed the kids up in my hubby's Marine uniform and took their pics on front of a flag.  I printed them up and put them in a matted frame with 3 slots (one for each boy).  The frame cost me like $8 and then like $.50 to print the pics.  He told my mom it was the best gift he has ever gotten.

Dress your kid/kids up in something he likes (ex. teams, hunting clothes, fishing clothes, etc) and take their pics and frame them.

LOL! That's awesome. I thought about making him a strawberry cheese cake since that's his favorite desert. And maybe some trashy lingerie.

I was literally just going to go to the lingerie place, and get some skanky outfit.  Plus we have this sexual type board game that we've NEVER played, so I figure, what better time, lol!  Oh, accompanied by some of Wal-Mart's good ol fake rose petals, lol!  I'm too tired to be creative.

We love being corny so I'm thinking trashy lingerie, homemade coupon book and I got these plastic red with hearts wine glasses. I know he wants to take me out to dinner and I have to dress up. So I figure my corny valentine for him will happen when we get home. I'm also going to make him a strawberry cheese cake.
