    last year by valentine's day i'd been going out with my boyfriend for 4 and a half months. and i've have felt awkward if he'd given me something that was £50+. to be honest if he did that NOW i'd feel awkward, i don't want him spending loads of money on me, on a random day of the year. it's not as important as birthdays/anniversary. he's picking me up from work, and buying pancake toppings. and that's enough
    This matches my feelings on gifts/v day exactly. OP its too much, save your money.

    Op i forgot to ask, do you know if she's getting you anything and also how much she is prepared to spend? Wouldn't you be a little miffed if you went through all this thought and spent so much to only find she got you a card and a box of chocs for a fiver?

    Going up north to stay at my bf's, no idea what we're actually doing yet though seeing as plans have been left to him and we haven't talked about it. Going for lunch or dinner would be nice though last year we went for dinner then to Revolution for cocktails with one of my flatmates and her bf.

    She's still alive. What do you think the knocking in the cellar is? The other hoes are asking about that tbh.
    The hoes are daring to question now? :judge: We've got to keep those *****es on lock down! :whip2:

    Get her whatever you want as long as you genuinely don't expect anything in return - gifts should be given unconditionally!

    My ex-boyfriend spent lots of money on jewelry and things for me for Christmas and got really angry when I only spent around half as much on things for him.

    Me too! It's almost 2 and a half years since I first went out with my boyfriend - I'd still feel awkward if I knew a gift was £50+.


    OP, the card and roses are a lovely gesture - If you really want to give her the spa vouchers on top of that, go for it, it is definitely a lovely thought. Just be aware that regardless how well off you are, she might not have that kind of money to spend on you and it could make her feel a bit awkward...

    Ultimately, girls love getting gifts - Every relationship is different, as to how much the gift should be, that's unique to the couple, so if you think you can afford it and that she is worth it, go for it

    Alright Yessir!
    :sogood: I was thinking maybe get the bus to Port Erin and have a picnic on the beach? It's pretty down there and we've had good weather recently. If it's cold we can cuddle in a blanket or something :hugs:

    Aww that would be good. Or if it gets too windy (as it tends to) then you could go get a hot chocolate and waffles from Robertos! Those waffles are AMAZING. I used to work there... oh I miss the isle!
