My wife gets madder than a wet hen if I buy her flowers. She says they are a waste of $. We just go out to dinner.

I will stop at one of those over charging tent places typically in front of grocery stores that opens up on valentines day and give them my money. I have never gone wrong doing that.

It is not a holiday- its just a day to go out of your way to make your wife or significant other know they are special. If you do or don't up to you. I got tickets to Cirque du Soleil Crystal - looking forward to it.

And there is no waste of money when it comes to time spent with your family. Granted true some things are expensive but many times if you can afford it- it is well worth it.

It's also Ash Wednesday this year. Take her to a catholic church, get ashes put on your forehead together, say a hail Mary and tell her you should both be focused more on your faith and that you are giving up gift giving for Lent.

That should do the trick.

If not and you get a dirty look after that, tell her your gift is to take her shopping and you'll walk behind her and call her pretty.

Good luck!

If more women knew the origination of Valentines Day was a Roman festival where women were auctioned off to single men as erotic slaves for the duration of the festival we would have a lot less of this flowers, candy and cards crap!

They would probably change it to #MeToo Day and we wouldn’t even have to talk to them for the entire day!

Go to the grocery store on the 15th. Arrangements that were $100 on Valentines Day will be marked down to $25. Get your wife way more flowers for the same money and come home a winner

If you buy flowers on the 15th you get a hell of a discount.

Wife is 7mo pregnant, 2/14 is the final sonogram in the morning. Then noon Ash Wednesday service. Just making a good dinner at home. She is too tired by the end of the day to go out.

I’ll grab some flowers and a card from somewhere after mass tomorrow afternoon

I wish mine was that way. But she used to be a florist, so flowers are her thing.
I hate spending $$ on something that wilts in a few days. But it makes her happy. Happy wife, happy life.

My wife hates Valentines day. She thinks it is ridiculous. We have been together since 1992 and celebrated it twice and she made the decision to not waste money on it ever again. I am not complaining because I feel the same way about it.

I’m glad I don’t ignore or look for reasons not to do anything for Valentine’s Day. Wife always acts like a teenager again which was not a bad thing this morning. I made evening plans- she makes morning and night plans

Jennie is gonna get a slap on the *** and a nice dinner out at our favorite restaurant. Valentines Day is stupid, a waste of money and time. I treat her like I love her everyday. If that ain't good enough, I doubt that flowers and candy on February 14th is gonna make a difference.

I looked at doing the same, for much of the same reason. But Sherrie wanted about $50 to deliver the $30 worth of berries that I tried to buy. I told Sherrie to keep her berries.

I used to send Lisa flowers ever year and she liked them like most women do except she doesn't have an office full of cackling hens to show them off too. She came home one Valentines about 6-7 years ago and said I love the flowers honey but how about in lieu of flowers, will you take the $80 and get me an Amazon gift certificate for books so I can enjoy them all year if you feel like you need to do something. The girl likes flowers but she loves books so I figured being the gentleman and awesome husband that I am, I'd oblige.. Sooooo...Valentines is an Amazon gift card, a good steak dinner and a small box of her favorite chocolates. Yes its a Hallmark Holiday but she's a happy camper...and I like to do things for her throughout the year. This is good timing for the early part of the year...

interesting.. i used the codes that popped up all over the place and got a dozen choc berries, and 10 cherrys delivered for under $30... quite reasonable and better than flowers.

be better if she was actually going to be there when they get there..but oh well..

Whatever makes her happy is what you gotta do. My wife likes lots of things better than flowers too.


I save flowers for when I really **** her off. The lady at the florist loves it when she has to write, "Sorry I'm an *****hole" on the little card that goes with the flowers....or my personal best, "You were still wrong, but I overreacted".
