My wife and I don’t celebrate V-Day either, I always tell her that if she needs me to show her I love her on that specific day then I am doing something wrong the rest of the year.

Same thing here. My wife sees flowers as a waste of money, they'll just die in a few days anyways.

“But Lord,” asked Gabriel, “Is this not too generous to these Canadians?”

And God replied, “Just wait and see the neighbors I shall inflict upon them.”

I found roses on 1800 flowers that you can plant, and they'll return each year. I can totally get behind that.

I've bought tulips and roses before that we planted. It's a better deal.

It's a TRAP! Buy the standard stuff everyone else does! Send the stupid cards! It's what they WANT us to do. The media says we HAVE too, or we don't love them. Fail to at least go with the norm and you lose! For the love of all that is holy, or at least the woman dumb enough to put up with you, buy her some cheap crap! Now Bellicose my friend, you have reached out to us for advice... take it for what it is worth (nothing) and go above and beyond the norm. You've done it before, Upgraded the bar for everyone else with that confetti thing... Now go further... you know what she wants. Breakfast? Smiley-faced pancakes? Chocolates, with personalized wrappers? A blubbery note about how you cannot imagine life without her? Cringe... poetry? (Houseman is your friend here, "from far, from eve and morning, and yon twelve winded sky"). These other schmucks who think their woman is ok without it are 100% wrong... Sure they say they are, but deep down, when the other women are complaining about how lame their partner is for getting them roses or some other schmatshy crap, they got nothing... nothing... and they remember it. Kudos for wanting to go over and above, because they are the reason we go out in the cold dark night to do the things we have to.
