How Can I Make Valentine's Day Special for My Husband
Hello all! I have a delimma this year with Valentine's Day. My husband and I have been together for 6 years and we have never really done anything for each other for Valentines Day. This year I want to change all of that. Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas on how to make this Valentine's Day special for us? Thanks for your help!

I recommend the husband project.
It is fun, cute and helps spice things up.

Send the twins to Grandma's and meet him at the door wrapped in saran wrap! LOL Either that... or just make him a nice dinner and have a sweet card at his spot that you made from scratch. Have fun!
Moms recommend the following deals from Mamapedia:

I'm with Diane.
Yes, the sex is going on already, but probably at a much diminished rate, with a pair of 5 yr olds in the house.... am I right? Send the kiddos to grandma's (it is on a Saturday this year, right?) and do things your husband will love. New lingerie. Sex. Some kind of manly food. Most men aren't that into salads and champagne... but a big juicy burger and an ice-cold beer are right up their alley...
Go do something physical with him (that doesn't involve sex)... not a womanly walk on the beach.. but a bike ride on a bike trail! My man likes a good workout... can't stand the idle stuff. But he will, on occasion, pen song lyrics for me... :)

Make him a special dinner, then feed it to him. Make it even more fun by either blindfolding him, or being naked! I love the idea of ordering pizza, then eating by candlelight, maybe put Coke in champagne glasses. Make brownies and cut them out with a heart-shaped cookie cutter for dessert. I think if you do anything 'special' related to food or sex, you're good!

You can be as extravagant or as simple as you want.
You can give him a gift card to his favorite store and take him shopping there. Then, go for Starbucks afterwards.
You can book a nice hotel for one night that is within driving distance and a nice restaurant nearby. Then, surprise him by having everything ready to go when he arrives home from work. Order chocolate covered strawberries for the room ahead of time and plan to give him a full body massage when you arrive in your room. After dinner, take him to the hot tub and then go back to the room and relax together and enjoy each other. In the morning, take him to breakfast and let him choose from 3 different activities that you have already researched. Take him home and thank him for being such a wonderful husband!
You could get a sitter for the night and plan a candlelit, music filled, dinner at home with his favorite foods and his favorite movie. Make sure to be creative and feed his dessert to him...
PS. I do agree that as long as sex is involved, he will be happy, but although some men are basic about it, there are many men that enjoy fine things in the mix every now and then. Afterall, the raw sex should be going on already anyway.

me & my husband have a'tradition' of making each other home-made cards (so the holiday isn't all 'Hallmark' and 'fake')
it's fun and let's us be creative- neither one of us (especially him, LOL!) is very 'artistic', but it's fun to see what he comes up with! he surprises me every year by what he comes up with!!! (me, I do more 'traditional' kid type ones with lace doilies and foil & glitter- his are made fro wheat he finds around the house and aren't always red or pink LOL!)

I know I will not be looked upon favorably for this response and I mean no disrespect, nor do I mean to insult anyone. I see these posts all the time and the responses are always the same "Take him out for a romantic dinner, a picnic, a special day" HE IS A MAN. You ask any man to answer honestly what they want from their woman for Valentines, their anniversary, for whatever and the honest answer will be SEX. They dont want romance and the beach, they want to know you want them in a sexual way and they want to feel like if you had a choice between anything and their manly genitals you would choose their genitals. why do you think men love strip clubs. Its all about them and their desires. Men do not desire romantic walks on the beach and candlelight dinners. They do those things in hopes that they will have sex. Get rid of the kids for a night, remember what it was like right before you got married and have lots of sex. He will know you think he is the "best man" in the world. Sorry girls. Ask any and all men in your lives, brothers, brother in laws, co-workers, friends and ask them to answer HONESTLY- Candle lit dinner or oral sex in the morning? 99% will say oral sex in the AM, the other 1% are in the closet.
