Help with Valentines gift ladies!!! Sorry for busting in your thread!

Ok sorry for coming into your thread like this but I need help!
I want to do something or get something great for V-Day for my wife. I will be honest I slack in this department, mainly cause I have been soo busy the last years and 2 I never knwo what to get her. She is not a big fan of roses, but likes other flowers, she loves Saphora's (spelling?) makeup, etc. and jewelry, but I am not sure what. We have a 8 month old and I want to get her a rose or something to start a tradition... So what would you guys love to get for V-day? What would make your day/year? here are some pics so you can kind of see what she may like... Ill throw in a pic of my daughter too just cause I am proud pay no attention to the ugly guy in the one family pic!


THANK YOU!!!!!!! HAPPY VALENTINES to you all!!!

Well, first off: Its Sephora.

Secondly, does she like perfume? Sephora has this gift-type-thing that you buy a 'perfume gift card' for X amount of money and it comes with 12 or 14 samples of perfume. She can try them allllll and then use the gift card to get her favorite!

Another thing, since shes a new mom, you could always give her a 'coupon' to watch the baby all day and get her a spa package at a local place. Go all out, pedicure and manicure and all that. That would be nice.

I'll keep thinking. Good luck!

IMO she shouldn't need to use a coupon for him to watch the baby if she wants a day to herself. he should do that anyway.

beyondink, what is your budget? if you can be sneaky about it, check her makeup collection to see what colors she wears and get her some higher end things that are in those colors. bobbi brown, dior, and chanel are my favorite higher end makeup brands. eyeshadows are a little more expensive than the drug store brands but to be honest, its worth it. my bobbi brown eyeshadows don't crease and they stay put until i use makeup remover to take the color off.

as far as jewelry what about mother rings?

each stone is the birthstone of each family member. she can even keep adding stones if your family gets bigger or the stackable rings, each ring has the birthstone of a family member and they're small so she can wear 2 or 3 on a finger.

I'm sure those shops have gift bags specifically designed for Valentine's Day. A Spa day is always nice too.

Re: Help with Valentines gift ladies!!! Sorry for busting in your thread!

no she definitely doesn't need a coupon.. I watch the little one all the time for her. She works 4 evenings a week and I have her all those nights alone.. and when she isnt working on the weekends and wants to do something I gladly watch Landry. I got her a mom ring for Christmas that had our daughter's name and birthday on it... I think I am going to check her makeup tonight while shes at work and get her some nice makeup.. but honestly I know she is always on Saphora... I might sneak on her computer and see if I can see what she looks at on Saphora.. i bet she has it bookmarked I definitely need to do something spa wise though too I knwo she will love that... but not sure how to find out if she has plans in the morning so I can make an appointment for her..

Just something sweet and simple. I'm one of those girls who doesn't ask for much. All I would ask of my bf this weekend is maybe some white roses (my favorite next to daffodils) and simple day of just being together. But he's already planning something really special lol.
Or you can get creative and do the mani/pedi that was mentioned

Re: Help with Valentines gift ladies!!! Sorry for busting in your thread!

my boyfriend and I work such long hours that I'm really just looking forward to valentine's day being an excuse to spend some good quality time enjoying each other's company alone. That's why I'm happy we are staying in. honestly that means more to me than any present he may get me. I've realized lately i have a tendency to complain that we don't get to spend enough time together, so I waste the time we do have together by complaining. I'm trying to change that and enjoy what we do have and know that it will only be another couple of years until we are done with grad school

Re: Help with Valentines gift ladies!!! Sorry for busting in your thread!

Ok, here's my take and slight novel. I married a pretty insensitive guy who really tried hard at "doing the right thing" when it came to holidays...lol. So hopefully my suggestions will help you

You know, I think it's great you are asking us, a bunch of chicks, our opinion about what you should do for YOUR lady, but it's your lady. My meaning: you would know if she likes to be wine & fine-dined at a quiet dinner, or if she prefers to just stay in, or if she would think it's endearing to get "honey-do coupons," or a maid-service for a few months (like Molly Maid or Merry Maids), or if the ideal gift would just be a Swedish massage and mani/pedi... you know what I mean? We don't know your lovely wife - we are all suggesting things that we would like - but you know the saying "someone's trash is another [wo]man's treasure."

You said she has the following likes/wants:
Sephora
jewelry
mani/pedi
day spa

And given your timeframe of roughly 2 days.... #1: A card would be nice! I would say, you would have to get on the ball quick to get something. Since she is a nurse, and needing some serious R+R, I think you are on the right track! (I work as a recruiter for a health system hiring nurses!) A gift certificate is not insensitive from Sephora or a day spa. Then she can choose what she wants - especially if the day spa has options of packages like adding hot stone therapy or paraffin wax. Just remember - these places will be most likedly BOOKED up for the weekend. You might be able to get a mani/pedi for her though at an independent Nail Salon (you know, the Asian ones - my people will hook her up! hehe j/k! I kid, I kid! You ever seen comedian Angela Johnson? hilarious!)

I know women are very particular in what brands/lines they use and color they use if you go and buy her makeup and body products - unless it's something you are replacing for her or wanting to suggest something for her to try because you "fancy" it (for instance - as a guy you would replace your fave deodorant or toothpaste, we do the same with our fave lipsticks, eyeliner/mascaras, body lotion, body washes, etc.)

Anyhoo, you are awesome for just trying to make her happy on this day...it's a "Hallmark Holiday"... it's the thought that counts. You totally get an A+++++ for effort!
