    If thats what she'll like then it's great- I'm not convinced by flowers/chocolates etc on valentines day- no thought at all needs to go into it. Not that i'm that interesting, I got my boyfriend a wallet!

    Well, she is quite gothic and she loves all things celtic, so a skull seemed a good thing to get.
    perhaps for a birthday pressie or something like that...but a Valentines gift is supposed to be romantic...

    but if she's into that stuff i'm sure she'll love it...

    Its a great present, hell if its what she wants then it is romantic, no?? My flatmate has bought her boyfriend a goldfish. I have no idea. I'm just going the usual way as its my first valentines day with a girlfriend, you know, meal, flowers, museum visits (she wants us to do something cultural), oh and of course as usual there is also ... I think you can guess!! :rolleyes:

    A lot of thought went into this, I was in the shop for almost an hour looking at various things, including a cerimonial sythe.

    What kind of shops do you go to?? I swear I have never found a shop with this sort of stuff in!! Which is probably a good thing as I would by all their stock!

    That is incredibly romantic, although it would be funny if you weren't in.

    Valentine by Carol Ann Duffy

    Not a red rose or a satin heart.

    I give you an onion.
    It is a moon wrapped in brown paper.
    It promises light
    like the careful undressing of love.

    Here.
    It will blind you with tears
    like a lover.
    It will make your reflection
    a wobbling photo of grief.

    I am trying to be truthful.

    Not a cute card or a kissogram.

    I give you an onion.
    Its fierce kiss will stay on your lips,
    possessive and faithful
    as we are,
    for as long as we are.

    Take it.
    Its platinum loops shrink to a wedding-ring,
    if you like.

    Lethal.
    Its scent will cling to your fingers,
    cling to your knife.



    That says it all - who gives their valentine an onion??? :eek:

    although I do love this poem...but still...an onion :eek: ??!?!?!?!?!
