    Get her wooden roses. My boyfriend got me some a year ago, and I put them in a really nice, vintage-y wine bottle as a kind of vase, and they're beautiful. Only a quid each, and they last basically forever. They're sold at those little stalls in town centres, or online: here, they're so so much cheaper.

    Otherwise, I think your idea sounds good. Most girls do actually like the whole valentine gift clichés. I'd love to get some chocolates I loved - make sure she likes them... - a soppy card, and some flowers.

    Take her to do something fun like paintballing or white water rafting! That's what i'd enjoy.


    TBH you've only been going out for 2 months so overly romanctic gestures are a bit OTT, i'd be a bit embaressed if a bf spent £40 on flowers for me..

    What about a small bunch of flowers? like

    Would probably cost less than £20 from Interflora or similar florists

    Much nicer plus it shows that have put more thought into it.

    am I the only person who doesnt want anything for valentines day? I find it all a bit cringey :/
    (Not saying there's anything wrong with other people enjoying it)
    No I agree, but my boyfriend wants to get me something :rolleyes:

    Also i'd rather have a single rose than a maHooosive bunch!

    ROSES ARE WICKED MON get her roses!
    it's so daft to think she won't want to be indulged :/
    Ok, valentine's day is cheesy as and pointless as, but every girl loves being spoiled, everyONE loves being spoiled. It's undeniable!
    Plus roses are lovely :heart:

    It's a bit OTT imo. Just get her something smaller. Valentines day is way too overcommercialised. Go out for a nice meal instead?

    If my boyfriend spent £40 on flowers for me I'd be going mental!!!!!! What a waste of money!!! I'd much rather a nice bag, a day out, or something worth it.

    I'd get freaked out if a guy got me all that after two months, my boyfriend doent acknowledge valentines day so i have never got anything. i tend to get him the bare minimum, a card and some chocolate, one year i got him ones of those cute M&S cube cakes. £40 could be so much better spent, you could take her out for a nice meal for that, or buy her something that lasts.

    That £40 could be used on a game. Much more important. Buy her just the card. Its the thought that counts right?

    Make her something. So much more personal than shop-bought stuff. Or better yet, write her a good old fashioned love letter, or even a poem (Lol, a bit cliche-d there.) Making a mix cd of her favourite songs sounds good.

    If you're gonna get her shop-bought stuff worth £40, just give her the money and let her go shopping instead.

    You shouldn't get her anything. She should be cooking and cleaning for you, end of.

    I've been with my girlfriend for over 9 months. We won't be getting each other anything.
    **** Valentines Day.
    :top:

    Valentines day is just an excuse for shops & restaurants to rip you off. If you really want to get her a gift make it something a bit more personal. I still don't see the appeal though, you can have a special night in any day of the year - why is valentines day special?
