The How Are You Gonna Waste Money This Valentine's Day Thread
 
Anyone got any good ideas? I've been toying around with a few, but i think i've settled on what i'm doing. Every female wants flowers valentine's day but i think it's a god damn scam (as if everything else wasn't, right?), a dozen roses is ~$70 on vday, so **** everything about that. If i'm gonna waste that kind of coin, i'm gonna get her a "flower" arrangement, but of fruit!

These things are the bomb, my sister gets them often and they're delicious.

Might make some chocolate dipped fruit or something else cliche. What are the enslaved, err, married, men doing for their old ladies?

Drinking......excessively.....alone. For now at least, I'll probably buy my BFF/Valentine some cheap, beautiful boutique jewelry

My wife is not big on flowers or candy. A night away from the kids by going out to a movie and a nice dinner suits her just fine.

Forever alone... so probably playing madden

Sadly for my wallet, i have a very girly/romantic gf that loves all that sappy stuff. We're gonna skip dinner since all restaurants will be jam packed and she works all day, so i'll just use that for whatever i'm getting her.

Edible Arrangements is always good... For everyone. Some M&M's too. And that's it.

fischbowl 02-01-2012 10:54 PM

Also, this is planned:



How happy is the blameless vestals lot!
The world forgetting, by the world forgot
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind!
Each prayer accepted, and each wish resigned.....

This ... except we always plow before going back home.

bantx 02-02-2012 01:02 AM

just open the door naked when she gets home, maybe wear some cupid wings to make yourself look less cheap.

Going to the bars and creepily hitting on lonely single college girls out for "girls night."

Ngatachance92 02-02-2012 01:32 AM

Getting a prostitute and role playing like we are college sweethearts destined to be together forever. Dinner... Dancing... Sweet sweet love making... Than chopping her body up and arranging the pieces in a heart shaped pattern only recognizable from an aerial view. You know, the usual.

The_Dude 02-02-2012 05:48 AM

buying a card. that's it.

eaglesalltheway 02-02-2012 07:13 AM

Haven't decided yet, might get some flowers, but I was also thinking about an edible arrangement, and will probably end up choosing one of those as long as they aren't too ridiculously priced, as well as dinner.

If you get her an edible arrangment beef is what's for dinner.

Most flower arrangements go a long way to resulting in beef dinner, I've never bought one of those edible ones, but yeah, I do think it will result in some serious brownie points on my end, lol.

I thought about a card, but decided against it. First of all its kinda cheap (and I'll probably leave some sort of note in the edible thing I get her), second, and any of them are either cheesy or overly romantic, and since we just went out once so far, neither type of sentiment would really be appropriate, IMO. This way I can write what I want, which is a huge plus for me.

BeerBaron 02-02-2012 08:56 AM

I'll just be treating it like it's any old Tuesday. I used to piss and moan about it, but like so many other things in life, I'm starting to just not give a damn anymore.

Unfortunately my Valentine's Day has turned into Valentine's Days. I'm taking my wife to a Rascal Flatts concert on Friday, so that is expensive. But we are also going to a nice dinner on Valentine's Day. And concert tickets, even though they are expensive, don't count as a gift because women need something tangible so I'm getting my wife a ring too. Probably some flowers too. Although $70 for a dozen is pretty ridiculous. I can easily get nice roses for between $30-40. All in all, I'm probably going to end up spending about $450.

I took my wife to a Rascal Flatts concert a few years ago. It was great; you'll enjoy it.
