Needing Ideas for Valentine's Day for My Hubby
Ok Ladies, I haven't been married very long, but I've run out of ideas to surprise my hubby with. We are very busy people and don't get to be or do romantic things often. However, my hubby is a sweetheart and is always doing kind things for me. How can I spice things up for us for Valentine's day. (or any other day for that matter)

Most men enjoy gifts of the heart more than items they probably will buy themselves. I did this for our 1st v-day. A photo album of our lives milestones, first date, first kiss, etc. I put a photo or graphic on each page with a caption with a date. Pic of us on first date with date below. I put the past, the present and also the future. Like a picture of our dream house and a date below it (our goal date) and Debt free graphic with a goal date below it, our kids graduation pics and date below, the birth of our grandchildren and date below... all estimated of coarse since we had only been together one year thus far. and the last page I put our 75th anniversay with the date below it. He could not believe I put down our hopes and dreams into a photo album. He felt bad that he BOUGHT me some silly gift when I put so much thought into my gift.. it took me an hour or so to assemble but he keeps it in his top dresser drawer. Just an idea I had!

after my husband and i got married we rented the honey moon suite at a local hotel. the room was decorated in white rose petals and hershey kisses just scattered about the room. there was also a bottle of sparkling grape juice on each bedstand and a bouquet of red roses laying on the bed. when i got home from work one day, my husband had arranged for my mom to watch the kids and he had decorated our bedroom to look just like the honey moon suite. it was the sweetest and most romantic thing he has ever done for me. he also had a nice candlelit dinner ready. we had a great night in and it didn't cost as much as going out would have so it was perfect!

You could prepare a treasure map with hints to a suprise location of a treasure, only the gift will be YOU waiting for him at a romantic hotel with you waiting in the jacuzzi. Leave a hotel key in the trunk of his car with a note. Have the treasure map lead him to the trunk of his car somehow to find the key. A friend of mine did this for her husband and it was the most romantic weekend they ever had.

Approach your husband with nothing but a big red bow on. It will get his attention, and definatly spice things up a bit.

Okay, this is a little over the top... My hubby came home one night - before kids - to find a note tape to the door. "Your presence is requested in the upstairs bath." I was dressed like a bath house madame. Candles lighted. We did a little role playing... I welcomed him to my bath house and asked him if the roads were very dusty and if his journey was hard. "Can I run you a bath, sir?" I bathed him, the areas that were okay with him, and let him soak a bit. Dried him with a large towel and asked him if he required a massage. Did the whole body massage and then asked if he required any of my other "services." It was quite fun!

Wow a lot of the advice you got seems really out there! I myself don't know that I could pull many of them off so I was just thinking since you say you are both pretty busy people and busy with work why not surprise him with something simple like a special lunch. Can you call his work and arrange for him to have extra time off for lunch? You can feed him chocolate covered strawberries for dessert. I thought something like this would be simple while still special since you can both take time out of your busy day to spend with each other. Then after work you can do some of the other suggestions!

My husband and I always go to a nice for dinner as our Valentine's present. We usually try to avoid eating out on the actual Valentine's day, so we can find a more intimate setting (less crowd). Also, my husband enjoys a good back rub. Maybe you could buy some lingerie to wear for him? Or eat-in and make him his favorite meal (maybe ask his mom for one of her recipes he loves). Or write him a 'love note' with all the cute little things you love about him. Also, you can put personal "coupons" in the love note like: One Free Backrub, One Free Night out with the boys, or get creative ;)
