I can't think what I would like. I've never had a Valentine's gift and nor I have given one.

My daddy used to give both my sister and I, along with my mom, a heart-shaped box of chocolates for Valentines Day. They were hand-made at a local chocolate and ice-cream shop in downtown Napa and covered in the most beautiful satin with extravagant embellishments. Every year he would choose a different box color for each of us, and made sure my candies did not have nuts, as I am allergic. Mom always got the biggest box, of course. It was always thrilling to get mine. We lived very simple lives with few extravagances, so these boxes were cherished. I continued the tradition with my own children, getting them each a box of chocolates for Valentines day.

I just like a kiss and a hug. No gift necessary. We are going out to dinner to a vegetarian restaurant tonight.

Leslie, I like going out to dinner too!! Your pewter rosebud with stem sounds lovely - a unique and lasting gift!

My favourite gift was always going out for dinner! emoticon One year, my husband gave me a sort of pewter rosebud with a stem - I have it propped in the large cup that holds kitchen utensils, so I see it pretty much every day.

I really like the Galentine's celebrations - they sound like an emoticon idea!!

I've read on Spark and on Facebook the past couple of days that some women are now celebrating "GALentine's Day" on February 13th. A day when women can get together with each other for a celebration... I think that's a neat idea. I know my eldest sister sometimes felt left out on occasions like Valentine's Day, so I used to give her a small box of candy to help her feel loved and included. I think Valentine's Day can be for any kind of love... not just romantic, but friends, family, etc.

Which Valentine's gift would you rather receive... chocolates, flowers, a card with a personal message? Or something non-traditional?



I always like receiving chocolates because chocolate is one of my very favorite foods!!!
