    all great ideas! thanks everyone! I know it's such a commercial thing but I also think he'd be put out if I didn't do ANYTHING! I love the picnic on the living room floor idea! :-)

    Right....next question.....Mother's day present?

    I'm so incredibly gutted! I had a really cute plan of little edible things for my boyfriend for Valentine's day as part of his present and it was going to be so nice (well, I thought so) and I just got an email from the place I was buying them from saying they can't get them made and delivered in time, or any time before.

    Proper gutted and I don't know what else I can get now :sad:

    Hi TSR

    well, I managed to land the girl of my dreams wednesday evening after seeing her on a quiet night together. Unfortunately, Im working on valentines day...typical..and I cant get the day off due to short staff and a recent employee being fired.

    We are gonna go for a quiet meal on the saturday instead.
    My problem is, what to get for her?

    Ie, she told me to get her nothing. Is that her way of saying "Get me something" and what should I get if so. She doesnt like a lot of fuss, but she does enjoy the time we have together.

    Thanks in advance, and hope this helps anyone else in a similar situation

    I'm going to buy the most erotic meal for one from Tesco (value range) and light a single candle, set a solitary place at the table and sit upon a single chair. Open a bottle of white lightning, get drunk beyond comprehension, open the valentines card i send to myself and then fap myself to sleep.

    Maybe if i wash the dishes i'll treat myself and pay for a night of high quality porn since i'll deserve it.

    I personally would get her nothing but pay for the dinner and whereever you choose to go that day. It's abit full-on to get her all the cliche valentine stuff.

    I'm a girl btw.

    I can't spend time with my boyfriend on 'V' day either, as I'm working But anyways, on our first v day, I bought him a little teddy with a heart saying 'I love you' on (we had been going out since the September though) and a card. Sweet and simple. He gave me a picture of us both in a frame, and a litlle magnet of a Me to You bear, with a litlle love type verse on.

    If she doesn't like a fuss, I would buy her something similar. Yes, she said don't buy her anything, but she won't be embarrased by something small all the same. A box of chocolates, a teddy or a single rose flower, with a card should be fine. As you haven't been together too long, you don't want something too expensive.

    Hope you have a great time

    Hmm well since this seems to be a first date, I would just take her somewhere really nice (btw, book a table NOW) and pay for it. Maybe a single rose if you see someone selling them on your way round?

    andygcfc - you could get her a framed picture of the two of you - thoughtful yet frugal! Valentines day shouldn't be about the spending it's about the sentiment.

    I was asking for tips earlier in this thread and someone suggested a picnic on the living room floor which I thought sounded mega romantic. Get a few candles going on.... obviously you HAVE to get her a card but flowers are a rip off on valentines and will die within 24 hours so don't bother.

    Hope this helps x

    or...me again andyfc. You could get her tickets to see Love Never Dies....it's an Andrew Lloyd Webber show that follows on from the Phantom of the Opera story! It's the only charity gala performance and all proceeds go to Great Ormond Street....see romantic gift as well as charitable! do it. Here's the link http://www.gosh.org/theatres-for-the...ver-dies-gala/
