As an 18 yr old male i think i know just about everything about life, but this one has me stumped.

Valentines day, the day of love and passion has never been....well, filled with love and pasion. Far from it, i have never been dating someone during valentines day so have never EVER bought a Valentines day gift. But this year is different, ive met the woman i want to be with for the rest of my life and after 10 months of dating, 6 months living together, i now have to find the perfect Valentines day gift.

BUT WHAT DO I GET? Do i go for something practical? Clothing perhaps, or an ironing board cover? Or should i go all lovey dovey and get one of those cute bears that scream needless consumerism? Perhaps a gesture of love is the best, something like roses spread over the bed when she wakes in the morning?

I really don't know how it all works, which is why im turning to the good people of UG. I know for sure that lots of you have had valentines day gifts fail, and others succeed wth flying colours...So what works?

Thanks to anyone who helps in advance

write her a song or perform a song that fits. For me i'll be playing my girl vermilion parts 1 and 2 by slipknot because they're love songs.

No offence dude but you may have misinterpretted those songs.

To Aussie, I like the flowers on the bed idea, Ive come to believe that girls like that sort of romantic stuff...ofcourse roses are expensive...hmmm

Take her out to dinner somewhere and make her feel special, also try to work out what she is getting you so you know what bar to aim at. It might ruin the surprise but at least that way you don't go overboard...or under

take her out to a place she likes to eat...think of something casual...maybe a park or near a lake. cook for her.

I cant believe no one has said buttsecks. Thats a record. Sadly though, Im not going to say it, Ill leave that up to someone else.

But something romantic is the way to go. The roses would be sweet, or dinner at somewhere fancy would make her feel like a princess, which is the way women like to feel. Men like sex. Women like to be wisked away by their knight in shinging armour. That is actually true, so make this memorable for her.

justin, that was easily the most inspiring, helpful piece of advice anyone has ever given me in regards to my musical pursuits.

If you buy flowers, I suggest you don't go at the end of the day. There will be 37 other guys with you fighting for the last good looking flowers.
#13
Buttsecks?

Nah - flowers are good.. I'm in a similar position. Just I'm 16, heh. I don't know what to do either.. I think I'm gonna scream 'hopeless consumerism'. I like that

buy her flowers, posh chocolates and a butterfly crotchless panty.

and go to a restaurant.

you're a bloke, and therefore can't cook for shit. Bad food is a turnoff.

Wow only 18 and already living together :O

I was still a kid at 18.

Im in a similar situation though, identical actually. I have never had a lover on Valentine's day, but now I too have the love of my life to buy for.

I was thinking of a night out in Paris or something. I just got a new job, so hopefully the money wont be an issue

Can I ask how you are affording to live together when you're only 18? You earning mega bucks already?

Dishwasher detergent. Or laundry detergent. She'll love you forever.

But seriously, get her a Christmas card. That'll scream "WTF?" and "LOL" both at the same time.

Definitely take her out for a meal and flowers are probably a nice touch as well.

Also, try and get her some little things, maybe a tiny cute little bear and then a bunch of other little things that reflect things she likes or reference things that she's said to you that you might remember.

Give her fart on a bottle. Or make her cook for you.
