Because my mom sure seems to think so.

I say it's mostly a celebration between couples but my mom says it's a celebration of love all together and wants me to buy her earrings. I'm not opposed, but I don't think it's traditional. Or am I wrong?

I can understand easy gifts like a card and some money or chocolates, but earrings?

Also worth noting, my mom was the one who told me to ask people just because she was so sure everyone does it.

If so yes.

I remember back in the day where valentines was about giving a girl you fancy a card without signing your name
You hit 'em and they get back up
I hit 'em and they stay down

who asks someone to buy them earrings
when that person isn't their significant other, anyway
and even then

Your mum has valentine's day and mother's day confused

Unless her name is Valentine and she's trying to milk it for all it's worth
I have nothing important to say

holiday edict and gift figuring is such a weird, quizzical pain in the ass. I just don't really buy much stuff for anyone anymore. something for mom at Christmas is about all.
#25
Earrings are a normal gift too. Go to Claire's or something


I get my mom stuff all the time but if it's near a holiday with gifts I give it to her then so yeah I have gotten her things for valentine's day before.

My mom used to do the same thing and I always thought it was weird. I would always get her perfume or jewelry or something and she would get me something lame. Then my family stopped buying presents for each other for everything except birthdays.

who asks someone to buy them earrings
Technically, she didn't ask. She left a magazine on my desk and circled some earrings on sale. In fairness, I think they're only like $30. I tried explaining to her that she should be telling my dad to get her these things though.

play mind games with yr bf/gf if you want
but unless it's a Birthday/Christmas and I've not got any ideas, any other family pulls that shit and they can fuck off

Are you implying I am? Because I already gave her the money to buy them herself.

My point in making this thread wasn't if I should or not, but if it's normal. Which, as I thought, is not.

No, but I will give YOUR mum a present for Valentine's day
Come back if you want to
And remember who you are
‘Cause there's nothing here for you my dear
And everything must pass
