I know I should be happy but...

DH and I used to NEVER get each other anything for Valentine's Day - it just wasn't our thing.

Then last year he ended up getting me some gifts - and I had gotten him nothing.  Felt like a schmuck and I *thought* we had agreed no gifts this year.

But, he just mentioned in a text that he needs to stop by the store to pick up a few more things for tomorrow - I asked if he bought me stuff and he said "a few things".

GRRRR.  I have NOTHING for him, and no time to go get him anything.

Suggestions?  I know many folks say coupons - like for 'private time', etc., but I'm not wanting to go that route.  Any ideas?

Do a goodie basket.  Go to the store and get a masculine basket, bucket, toolbox, whatever suits him.  Good for reusing as storage if he wants.  Fill it with his favorite candies, maybe a sappy movie he wouldn't mind, and some other things he enjoys (got a Victoria's Secret around you? Put some lingerie for you in the basket, and he will likely want to see it on and OFF of you!)

A great idea - now to find time to get to the store :(  I could go late tonight after kids are in bed.

I was thinking I could maybe get up SUPER early (he gets up at 3:00am and leaves at 4:00am for work) and make him a VERY early breakfast...?  Or is that totally stupid?

I am making a goody for tomorrow morning- found the recipe on CafeMom.  Strawberry Cream Cheese Crescents.  Sounds yummy.  I know some places you can shop online and have your order waiting when you go in.  All you have to do is pick it up and pay.

If there's a florist around you, they may have some manly things put together already - or you could do a balloon and candy bouquet, something like that?? Have them deliver it, if that would work with his job?

Probably corny, but I picked up Sky Fall Blue Ray and some of his favorite candies to make a small gift bag for DH. We aren't that big into Valentines.
