Flowers Make Great Valentines Gifts

Posted on February 9, 2008 by under Life, Sponsored Post.    

When Brian and I first got together many, many years ago we used to really look forward to Valentines Day. It was probably the biggest holiday of the year for us, second only to Christmas.

We would make a really big deal out of it. We would get each other extravagant gifts (remember that this was before we had our financial epiphany) besides going out to a special dinner date and all of that. He would get me valentines gifts and I would get stuff for myself, too. Most of the time it was lingerie to wear on our special date. Valentines is one of those events where the women really making a killing. LOL!

These days Brian and I don’t really get it each other anything. Normally, we will go out to dinner and then maybe schedule a couples massage for the weekend. That’s pretty much it. If I’m lucky, maybe I’ll get flowers delivered to work. I remember I did that one year for him, back when he worked for Intrust Bank. I had it delivered to their office downtown. It really took him by surprise. Only a handful of people got flowers delivered that day, and the only other guy to receive flowers was gay. He didn’t even get a dozen like Brian did. LOL.

I really splurged that year because I did some other things besides the flowers, which back then cost me $80. When you’re getting paid less than $8 an hour, that’s a full days worth of work. It was worth it, though, because it made him feel special (and a little gay). That’s okay, though. We have always been somewhat unconventional.

I hope you all have a wonderful Valentines Day!
