What type of Valentine gifter are you? This question has been on my mind for the past week or so. I’m not a big gift giver on Valentine’s Day. Never really have been. I hate receiving flowers on this day because I know they are outrageously overpriced, and that really bothers me.
I guess I would prefer to get a gift “just because” instead of on Valentine’s Day. Heck, we just had Christmas 6 weeks ago – and my birthday isn’t until September, so the gift giving gets kind of dry for the next few months. I think I would prefer a gift in May or June over today. A little something is nice, and my latest yarn goodies are actually my Valentine’s Day gift (hey, I got something I really wanted!), and Mike got a Chemex coffee pot, and that is enough. No jewelry, nothing too over the top – I’m all about the little things. We had a nice dinner at home and we’re going to watch “Under the Tuscan Sun” and maybe “Love Actually” if we have time. Nice and quiet.
Am I the only one? How do you feel when it comes to Valentine’s Day?
