    I got my girlfriend:

    - a diamond ring (shut up, it's small, it's not an engagement ring)
    - a huge boquet of flowers to be delivered to her on V-day
    - a little decorated cookie (inside joke)
    - a CD of various songs (delayed xmas gift)
    - a scrapbook-ish thing with pictures of all the moments together (the places) where things happened (ie: first kiss, etc.)

    She decided to get me something ... I'm not entirely sure ... but I'm pretty sure it's an expensive watch >_< Oi vey.

    It really depends on the dude, but I'd say make it something meaningful.

    I forgot to mention ... I'd be more than okay with the watch, but I expect absolutely nothing. It's an excuse to go really over the top for me for my girlfriend ... she doesn't have to get me anything, because I don't expect anything.

    All I want for Valentine's is my girlfriend in sexy lingerie.

    My wife's getting poetry, artwork, roses, chocolates, fancy lingerie and a romantic dinner from me on the fourteenth.

    As for guys not liking flowers and chocolates, that doesn't always hold true - I'd love flowers and chocolates for Valentine's. And lots of kinky sex, too, but that's besides the point.

    I'm really hard to shop for. My wife has me give her a list of things I want but promise not to buy until after our anniversary :p  (my birthday is 3 days after Valentines and our anniversary is in April)..after that I can make a new list and buy a few things on the old one or let it stay so she always has a 'just in case she wants to surprise me' moment :) 

    I do my shopping by looking over her shoulder constantly, then sneaking back later and buying it...so far I've got her taken care of until Christmas, and since it's stashed for months at a time she forgets that she was looking at it in front of me :p  For Valentines she's getting taken out for sushi at her favorite place, a DVD of the movie Time After Time which she thinks is long out of print, the graphic novel 1000 Ways To Die (she loves the show) and a new pet....a ball python!

    Honestly, I'd be perfectly happy with a worthwhile conversation & the simple sense that neither of us are dull enough in our every day lives to rely on days like this to sustain our relationship.

    Well, sex & transformers too, but those should go without saying.

    I would say just go for the cutest girl you've ever met, give her candy and ask her to be your girlfriend. I'm sure Dragonclaw knows that's what I do.

    - Hell I like chocolates, what's wrong with that? Maybe not a heart box, but a nice box of choccy is always appreciated by me.

    - Instead of flowers, why not a cactus? I used to get those every year for a while and I loved 'em.

    - What's his favourite animal? Maybe a card which has a picture of it or a small toy of it would be good.

    - A watch. I hate watches in general, but most chaps seem to like 'em.

    - Tickets to an event or a concert for the both of you.

    As for what I'm doing for the missus this year, we're just doing something at home. I'll be making her heart-shaped pancakes for breakfast before she gets her presents (Godiva chocolate and a bear in a cute bag) and card. In the card I've written "I love you" in fifty languages. Cheap and easy romantic gestures ftw.

    - Sex is always good. Lingerie is even better. Normally that's covered along with the other gifts "for the wife".
    - Steak dinner or maybe eat at Le Milsa and good wine.
    - I don't mind flowers and chocolate but you have to know what to do with it.
    - Trip to nice beach resort

    I really don't know. Romantic = Sex

    As you can see, not all guys like the same thing. That's the problem with these hallmark holidays, you actually have to know your recipient and not get lazy and do cliche. What does YOUR guy like?

    Me, I like a bj, maybe a day off to go to the gun range or skiing, go get bottomless buffalo wings or Jamacian jerk chicken. Relaxing things.

    Nothing good ever happens on Valentine's Day. Something wrong that goes awful eventually happens. A Valentine's Day card is good enough for me.

    A Harley Davidson or a custom chopper would make my knees weak.

    But like the guy above, I don't really expect anything much on that day. I get a TF and I'm happy. Does the hubby have any hobbies?

    Nothing. I do not want anything on Valentine's day and if you insist on getting me something, please do not send it to my office. It is a chick holiday and the ladies should get something sweet and romantic, but I think many guys want nothing. Frankly, treating your girl right usually gets you a reward in the bedroom anyway.

    Personally, I don't care about Valentine's day at all. I could not care less if my wife got me nothing on this fake ass holiday. However, I always get her flowers and we go to dinner. But if I were forced to ask for something it would agree with the guys that said lingerie and sex.
