I don't have to get my wife a gift this year because two years ago I gave her a pair of 5 buckle overshoes and they are the same as new. Buy good quality the first time and you save money in the long run.
Of course nothing says lovin like a new pair of mud and snow tires for her old pickup!
If you wake up dead Sunday morning, can I have your target gun?
Hi Pat. I am a lady and I am here to help you. Give her 25 Gold Medal Papers and 25 roses. She can enjoy the smell of the roses and then after you shoot the papers, enjoy the smell of the empties and the guy that shot them. Or, give her a 25 pound bag of shot and a 25 pound box of chocolates. See which one she opens first, then you can have what she doesn't want. Remember, it's the thought that counts, just don't tell her what you were thinking when you get all of this stuff. Enjoy your Valentine.
Pat, maybe a new fishing rod? I don't really listen to music but my wife got me a stereo for our first Christmas. Unfortunately, we did not have enough money for speakers so we got the old ones out of my buddies pickup when he put in good ones. I learned and she got a new fishing rod for Valentines Day and we had a discussion. If you want it for us or yourself, buy it, just don't try to give me a gift and then expect to use it. On the other hand, no matter what I buy it is not the right color, size, etc. I go with flowers an a large box of chocolates (so I can sneak a few or tear up the box and tell her the dog ate them). GOOD LUCK
Our valentine's days are always a surprise...Leo tried to be sweet and use our anniversary date as the house security code, only he used the wrong date! When we are in Tucson over Feb 14, there is a rose grower who pulls in a semi-tractor trailer full of fresh roses (along a street near the airport)and Leo always stops and buys several dozen. This year we will be going to Sarah's basketball game, way more fun than dinner and a movie. So, some years are more romantic than others, but I guess that comes with the marriage certificate.
Pat, I'm gonna guess you messed this up from the get-go.
See, I married my fine wife michelle (like most of us, I'm way over my head in terms of quality, here) fairly close to valentines day - march 20th.
But I PROPOSED to her on Valentines day. And I told her that the ring was going to be her present for the next ten years. It was a modest ring - $2,500 or so back then.
But over 10 years, hey, that's $250 PER YEAR for a valentines gift.
Now, what kind of woman wouldn't be happy with a $250 present?????
This sort of thing also works if you happen to buy her a birthday or christmas present that might cost a bit more than you intended to spend. You buy her a half ton of shot for a birthday present - that's almost $1,200 right there - and you tell her that this is her present for her birthday, memorial day, 4th of july, labor day, halloween and thanksgiving.
That way, your little lady can say to her friends "that Pat, he's thoughtful....never misses even the most minor of holidays. Always gets me something." That's the kind of PR everyone needs....and it will have you spending more time at the club before you know it.
Yours in shooting (hey, I just saved you so much in presents you can afford to come up to Alaska now)
