    The names of the innocent have been changed to protect the guilty...

    I was 19, in Uni and life was good. I was seeing a girl (Girlfriend B) and we'd been together for a few months and of course being all romantic I bought her roses, some chocolate and a card. A week or so previously I'd bumped into an old flame (Girlfriend A), and we had a chat and that was that. We met up again at house party, one thing lead to another... and I'm sure you can fill in the blanks.

    Basically, I had both young ladies in tow the same time and before anyone says anything, yes, I know thats not a good thing to be doing! So, Girlfriend A, mentions valentines, I go buy a card etc... To cut a long story short, I put the wrong card in the wrong envelope. I gave Girlfriend A (who was allergic to chocolate), the chocolate (I'd forgotten this) and the card for Girlfriend B. Girlfriend B got the roses and the card for Girlfriend A. Needless to say, I had a very, very quiet valentines day.

    All I can say is that Girlfriend A had many wide and varied interested. Crosswords were most certainly not one of them!

    Not so much a gift but...

    Our first wedding anniversary was in December last year, the day before we both realised we hadn't got gifts or cards for each other. We decided that we didn't need/couldn't really afford gifts, but bought each other a card whilst in Asda shopping (cards placed face down in trolley so we couldn't see the other's card). They're still some where in the house, unwritten and ungiven, but at least we've got cards for next year!

    Yes I'm an account holder.

    I don't normally do Valentines day, but a few years ago now, I thought for once I'll make a nice romantic gesture and make my wife breakfast in bed, you know, full works with a glass of champagne, single rose, etc. Got it all done, really pleased with it sneaked upstairs walked in bedroom and tripped over the dog. All went everywhere, followed by the mrs jumping out of bed, foot straight on the champagne glass. The rest of the morning was spent in A&E.

    Thanks, oh and to top it all, the dog ate the breakfast and I had to clean up a bedroom that looked like I'd tried to murder the mrs ;-)

    I once gave a GF my last rolo for valentines day. All was well until she realised I'd ate the rest of the packet and not saved her any.

    I once did the cheap Valentines present, well cheap as I made something. I bought a heart shaped cake tin, made a cake, iced it, put hearts on top and gave it to her. She was impressed.
    normally its the card/chocs route, not really sure what to do this year, as have no card, cake, present so might be a rush to Tesco later.
