    Valentine's ideas... for MEN??? 27th Jan 07 at 6:02 PM
    It's pretty easy to buy for women... roses, teddies, perfume, chococlates, jewellery, etc.

    However, what is there to give to men? Has anyone got any ideas for stuff for men that aren't too wussy? I'm looking for 'token' ideas, not weekend's away, etc.

    I could get away with it.... OH's b'day is 3 days after Valentine's Day...

    So far his blimmin b'day and V's Day have cost me 125 quid!!!!

    I asked why the heck did he have to be born three days after Valentine's Day?! Now thats just awkward.

    I've bought him the Father Ted DVD box-set and done one of those free name-a-star things for him for V'day, and I've bought him a new electric razor as a joint b'day/V Day pressie...

    And he's bought me something really romantic :rolleyes: 2 games for my Wii!! Who said romance was dead??? I asked him if he would get me some white roses (my fave flower) and he wants to buy them the week before so he doesnt have to pay the inflated prices they're charging on Valentines Day!!!

    Sheesh. Does anyone else have a really unromantic OH or is it just me???!!!

    ive been married 15 years so this wont be good for everyone but i got a red organza gift bag the drawstring kind and filled it with red paper hearts , 365 , one for every day of the year and wrote resons why i loved him on every single one,, i hit the pain barrier around the 200 mark lol and finished the last 50 odd with quotes on love by famous people like Shakespeare, poetry etc , my husband was / is not very soppy but he was just gobsmacked really, he says he will never forget it and keeps them in his car and reads one every day , haha he probably throws one away every day lol i dunno

    Caz.. thats a beautiful idea!
    I know I'd be thrilled with a thoughtful gift like that, so I imagine most men would appreciate it too

    I might have a go, and add it to my box of heart cookies i'm making

    Great Gift Ideas for Men
    Men are notoriously difficult to buy for and like things you would never understand. This also applies to birthdays, Christmas or any other event - not just V - Day. Try not to buy him something you want him to have. There are some great gift sites now for men. My personal fave is Hope this helps.

    as this is money saving
    My husband and I have been together 44 years & married for 42. In all that time a card, present or meal out has never been exchanged. That doesn't mean we don't love each other because we do, we just think it all a waste of money.

    Therefore just using an average of 10 per VT day spent, probably much more but we are going back a long way, 4,400 at least saved.........result.
