Chocolate covered strawberries, a couple dozen Milky Way Dark (her favorite), a dozen roses (I'm on a government salary so I can't go big time like Jay).  And I took her out for a meal that was supposed to be nice, but ended up being horrible.  The night still ended very nicely!   ;D

Got her the "new" saddlebags she wanted for the Boulevard. Well, actually she found them on Ebay and bought them and said "you just bought me my Valentines gift". We went out to dinner together.

Well, Conrad, my wife chose me over you.  :)   

Gave my wife a handmade card at dinner the night before SVD and that's was it.  But then, I surprised her with Roses at the Breakfast table.


And, when she said she missed getting peanut M&Ms this year, I smiled to myself because I had slipped them into her lunch.

Over dinner last night she said that she spotted the M&Ms in the bag when she had her morning snack.  Due to 'evaporation' all the M&Ms were gone by the end of the day.  I don't know why...  :)

Yep, those M&Ms have a high vapor pressure for sure.

I'm thinking all restraunts were totally packed last night, we stayed in and had a nice dinner and drinks at home because I hate crowds like that and so does mama...

Both!  I felt compelled to let everyone else know what I thought of the experience.  You can read about it here.  The place wasn't even that busy, there were at least 10 empty tables out of the 25 tables or so.

Valentine card #35 in a row (includes dating years) and coffee in bed before I left.  She brought me a card, chocolate truffles, and made me an outstanding dinner of salmon, wild rice, spinach salad with sweet warm dressing, and fresh strawberry shortcake. You can tell she's a keeper.

I did not get her anything ,I realy do not fall for that  money trap,after 35 years together my wife is used to it .
I buy her surprises all the time like special cheeses, flowers, perfume etc . When we were dating I used to buy Flowers once or twice a week .
Now what did she give  me  :)

+1 to this. I've known my wife since 1975 and been married to her since 1977. We still love each other and more importantly, we still like each other and enjoy each other's company.

Like Graham, I got her nothing and she got me nothing. We treat each other the same every single day of the year and theres no reason for us to have to have a day to tell each other what we already know and feel about each other. Married since 1992.
