Aloha Friday: A Valentine’s Gift
On Monday, couples all over will celebrate Valentine’s Day. They will surprise the ones they love with flowers, chocolate, and jewelry. These may be the traditional Valentine’s Day gifts, but they aren’t ones I can rely on.
Flowers are nice, but B doesn’t like them. She has said on multiple occasions that she doesn’t like watching them die. Chocolate’s out too. While I’m chronicling my weight loss attempt, B is also attempting to lose weight. Giving her a large box of chocolates doesn’t seem very supportive of her efforts. In the case of jewelry, there is a money issue. Every time we turn around, it seems like we need to spend more money on something (the house, for instance), so it seems frivolous to toss a few hundred dollars on a piece of jewelry that B may or may not like. (I have a bad track record with jewelry gifts. There’s a good reason why we picked out B’s engagement ring together.)
Then again, we do have a trip to Disney World coming soon. There are plenty of things there that could catch B’s eye. So this year, I’ll likely get B an IOU for one gift at Disney.
My Aloha Friday question for today is: What did you get the one you love for Valentine’s Day?
Thanks to Kailani at An Island Life for starting this fun for Friday. Please be sure to head over to her blog to say hello and sign the McLinky there if you are participating.
I’m getting my man a new backpack camera case! ;D

My love and I agreed to stop giving V-day gifts and instead showing love all year long. With that said, I would love jewelry (nothing expensive) and my love prefers techy gifts.
Happy Aloha Friday!

Well, I got him a bonsai tree for his office. I will be getting him something else not sure a the present time. I have to listen carefully to his wish.

My husband and I don’t get each other Valentine’s Day gifts. We get a little something to give our kids but not for each other.

I think your plan is perfect! Have fun at Disney.
We aren’t Valentine’s Day celebrators anymore. Which is fine. I make treats for the kids and decorate inside for the kids. I do love the day and think it is a great pop of pink and red in an otherwise dull month of dirty snow.
