Default "Don't buy me anything for V-Day."

If you tell your husband/SO/Whomever to not get you anything for Valentine's Day, do you mean it? Do you expect NOTHING - like even a card? Or do still still expect SOMETHING just not anything expensive?

I meant it this year because S/O had a minor car accident and just payed out for a weekly rental. I just told him that I wanted a card, which will actually suffice for me as long as he writes a nice note in it.

I mean it. But I always say what I mean. If he asks me what's wrong and I say nothing, I mean nothing. I don't like games.

I mean it, but you know what he does, he buys me something anyhow, & since he told me not to buy him anything either, I didn't!

Here is what you do. Buy a box of good chocolates and hide them. If he gets you something you pull them out as a gift. If her doesn't get you anything you get to eat them yourself. It's a win-win.

If I say it, I mean it. I don't think it's fair to say "don't get me anything" but then still expect SOMETHING.

Then again, I don't expect much for Valentines day anyway. I think it's pretty much reserved for people who are in the early parts of dating, and need to be reminded that someone cares about them. My husband busts his a$$ at work every day so that I can stay home with our daughter. He takes care of me when I'm sick, and cooks me dinner when I'm too tired to do it myself. Those things tell me more about how he feels about me than flowers and candy.

That being said, I DO tell him to get something for his daughter for V-day. I think it's cute, and the responsibility of a dad to make his daughter feel important and know she has a valentine.

I mean it. We do special things for eachother all the time, so there's no need to buy something just because it's for Valentine's Day. It's funny because I have to stop him from buying me things. I think he appreciates the fact that I don't expect/need him to buy me anything, so he WANTS to spend money on me.

AND he is paying for our trip to Puerto Rico next month, so I think it would be pretty selfish of me to expect/want anything. He already does SO much for me during the other 364 1/4 days out of the year.

I mean it. SO and I agreed not to get each other anything for Valentine's Day. We've done this before so I'm not worried he's going to actually get me something and then I will be stuck with no gift for him.

Yes, I mean it. Hubby has bad taste in jewelry and I don't do chocolate.

I also don't want a card. Two years ago, my husband got me a card and I made the fatal error or just reading his message. Apparently, he spent a lot of time picking out the card that best expressed his feelings and he was crushed when I didn't read it.

Me too. So is my husband. We do cards, but that's it. We're trying to conjure up some V-Day love from now on though, considering it's Z's birthday and all. We don't feel right h8ing it anymore.

That's really sweet. My dad got me a beautiful bracelet for Valentine's Day a few years ago and it was really touching.

I mean it. I assume he will still get me a card, but don't care if he doesn't. In december, he gave me a ring. Last week I got a dozen roses. God knows I don't need the chocolate. I think he's relieved to be off the hook

I mean it. And then he always gets me a card, which makes me mad, because I always forget to get him one. I should stock up, so I have one for every occasion, because I have the same problem with our anniversary.

Guanoing my own thread, but your avatar is gorgeous!!!

We usually get each other something small, but I am thinking this year, just cards. Hubby usually picks out some good cards, and I like getting them.

A lady called into the radio station and said that she told her husband not to get her anythihng and then was totally shocked and pissed off when he, DIDN'T GET HER ANYTHING. The radio people were like, "DUH."

i say it and mean it...

This christmas, I told him i didn;t want anything...i told him we could fill eachothers stocking with little things and then i got him a christmas gift from Steven that was it..

he ended up with bathroom stuff like razor heads and whatnot in the stocking and some OSU stuff from Steven, i did not spend more that $50...and i would have had to buy him most the stocking stuff within the month anyways..

He got me a massaging pillow thing, bath and body works stuff for the stocking and from Steven...a freakin caret diamond necklace...did i like it YES, was i kind of pissed YES. His excuse was that he is a jeweler and cannot not buy me jewelry b/c it is just what he does..

i told him i didn't want anything for V-day...just for him to plan the night out for once so i didn't have to worry about anything but looking pretty...he never wants to paln anything, hell i even decided what we did on my birthday last yaer so this will be gift enough (even though he is predictable so i pretty much can figure it out)
