Massages are good.
Especially yummy smelling ones. Mmm.
For valentine's both my boy of 8 months (9 just after valentine's!! eek!) and I are fairly broke. I'm taking him to a Valentine's Banquet, a vegetarian dinner party event held here in town (they do something every month, this month is valentine's, with entertainment and everything!) .. it's a potluck so I am sorta making him dinner and sorta treating him to dinner... and then we are going to a play called The Bacchae which a friend of mine is in.. which is $12 for the both of us.. so yay... That's all happening on the 8th though due to timing of both events..
On the 13th is a Con-Version (local sci-fi/fantasy convention) Valentine's dance that we'll probably go to if we can afford it.
On the actual 14th I'm hoping to go to a movie.. 50 First Dates looks cute... I have discount coupons that make movies cheap too.. yay.. *laugh* ... so we've got DATE stuff... The 14th night is a game night for HIS game, so I think that's what we're doing (we LARP and are addicts and stuff) that night.
I'm not too worried about actual gifts.. I think going out and having fun is a good time. If we had the evening free I'd want to do something sweet like make dinner together, and cuddle up and watch some of our favorite movies together, perhaps infront of the fireplace at my house..
I mean stuff is always fun to get, but I am with him because I adore him and not cos he can get me stuff... and I love doing stuff with him, making dinner together, etc etc etc..
If you want an idea of something to get, I saw a cute heart-shaped pillow with a pocket. I thought it was sweet cos you can put a vday card in it.. and after vday, slip cute little notes or pics of you (like budoir pics or whatever they are? ie naked you in a sheet type of thing? lol) or something in it. It was at Safeway and was like $7 here in Calgary but I dunno about where you are... but something like that is always cute. Or little toys or things like that. I dunno what your bf likes though.. mine has toys that now live under his bed because he babysat my ferret for 6 weeks during my Australia trip and he lost all his toys..
but he likes toys.
Dunno if any of that helps.. lol.. I'd say find something you guys enjoy doing together and spend the night that way, without too much worry of actual gifts, if you aren't sure what to get him. Or maybe go with like a phrase shirt or things like Thundercats or Transformer shirts if he likes those kinds of things. I know most of my guy friends do and my boy does so could be a good gift.
