    I'm not a fan sorry. I just think it is way to commercialised and to be honest I much prefer it when my OH buys me a little pressie on a different day because he has been thinking about me as opposed to a overpriced pressie and card saying he loves me as that is what he should be doing on valentine's day.

    I like it just to uy something stupid, I get giant miillys cookies with something embarrasing writen on, or a box of helium ballons, or erotic soft toy and chocs delivered to OH at work so his co-workers can take the piss!

    I dont ever buy 'proper' presents cause I buy presents randomly throughout the year for my OH so I dont need a day to tell me too. Ijust use valentines to humiliate him. Imight get him a blow up sheep delivered this time or something!

    that always cracks me up - but it is also sad that they feel they have to do that to show their love. Why not get a big bunch on a random day when she's not expecting it. Much more romantic.
