I got a box of pretty pink macarons in assorted flavours. Waiting for DS to be asleep so we can share them.

We don't normally do anything for Valentine's Day so it was a nice surprise.

I got some red roses and some little love duck figurines, which sit nicely next to our handmade birds nest cake topper that was on our wedding cake a week or so back original.gif

Umm nothing.  Not even a kiss or a 'Happy Valentine's'

We don't really do the Hallmark holidays.

He is away from home at the moment but sent a text message with a phrase that means absolutely nothing to anyone but us. It made me smile and go a bit mushy inside. blush.gif  wub.gif

I got a bottle of wine and I got him some chocolates. We don't normally celebrate it so it was a nice surprise to both of us.

Another in the nothing camp. We don't celebrate it and DH only just arrived home tonight after a week away so we've barely had a chance to speak to each other yet.

Well, that's passion...of a different kind I guess, but still....there's always make up sex!

I got a hand made card...from my son! Yes I know...lame.....but I liked it...

I wasn't expecting DH to get/make me anything but he made me a card + bought me heart shaped macaroons... and I didn't have ANYTHING ready to give him! So I made him his favourite dinner lol

#18 ~THE~MAGICIAN~

Posted 14 February 2013 - 08:36 PM

I dropped my DH off at 4am at the airport (he is FIFO) neither of us remembered at that time of day. We don't celebrate it anyway, with 2 kids birthdays either side this month, it's expensive enough without bowing to commercialism.

When he phones tonight we might not remember then either LOL

A beautiful set of royal blue sheets. They go fabulously with our  blue and gold silk bed spread from Thailand.

And he will be getting a special dinner when he gets home from work at about 11.30 tonight lol

I scored some roses that were delivered this morning wub.gif I am very spoilt by DH, and I usually get breakfast in bed every day. I got up early though this morning and made him heart shaped pancakes for breakfast laughing2.gif

Cup of tea in bed and a box of chocolates, my kinda breakfast lol

#23 Feral Grey Mare

We don't celebrate Valentine's Day.

#24 Jupiter123

Posted 14 February 2013 - 08:41 PM

I got spoilt  biggrin.gif

A single red rose, a big box of Ferrero's, a bottle of wine and a plush teddy bear. (All of which but the wine DD is trying to pinch lol)

We are also going jewellery shopping on the weekend but I am not sure if that's for my birthday next month or just cause he loves me.

For him, he got a roasted pork belly with crackling and roasted veg.

This is splurging for us as usually its just a kiss on the cheek and be done with it.

Don't let the pressure of a Hallmark day get to you. For me, the stuff that matters is the every day tiny little ways of showing the person loves you and wants to make you happy. Making a big gesture because it's Valentines Day doesn't seem as real to me.

My DH put the chickens away for me tonight. I thought that was romantic (because I'm lazy and really didn't feel like going downstairs in the dark)  wink.gif
