Valentines Day Gifts

I need ideas people, I got her flowers, perfume and took her out for a meal last year. It's not going to cut it this year if i buy and do the same this year.

£50 is the limit (me being a tight fisted scotsman and all that)

why not think outside the "orange (or even pink) box".

to be honest chocolates , wine etc, anyone can do them...and to be fair theres very little thought in them.

try and do something different....something off the cuff.

do something seemingly cheesy but with thought,

make her a card......sounds crap, but works a treat....

have your place tidy and filled with nice aroma's and have the bath run and nicely laid out...

buy her a nice gift, but set her up a treasure hunt with romantic notes.. etc

valentines day is marketing tosh for buy as much as you can otherwise you dont love them.

I suppose the true spirit of valenties is to do something that she knows you took the time and effort to do and with a lot of thought.

then its GAMEON,

I agree with what coolio said the less money more effort is always a winner. Simple but romantic!

As mentioned before the simple things are what matters.
Such as last year for me, I bought her favourite bottle of wine, Laid out a feast of steak and everything that she wasn't allowed because of her Mum putting her on a diet, and bought her favourite ice cream. After we watched movies and played computer games, and she loved it. oh... a single rose does the trick...
Talking of tricks... try this:

1 x Fake Rose
1 x Speech

Method of Madness:

Give her the fake rose
Give her this speech:
For as long as this rose lives (looks alive) I shall love you!

It worked for me, I assure you

I usually don't give her anything. She diets and is allergic to flowers so that makes it easy and I learned from the time I stupidly made little love coupons for cuddling and such. She horded those and would pull them out at the worst times (when I was having fun...heaven forbid!).

If the weather is decent I might take her to movies but it will probably be crowded with teens there. I might postpone the celebration for the weekend and then take her to a place she likes to walk.
