    Generally speaking; Do women (really) want lingerie for a Valentine's Day gift?

    I can't imagine there are too many women hoping to get a pair of thong underwear for Valentine's Day. Aside from the usual roses, candy, and stuffed animals along with dinner...etc What are some of the gifts women (really) want that most men never think to give them on Valentine's Day?

    I personally think if I were to receive lingerie for Valentine's, there would be an expectation that goes along with it.  I would rather receive appreciation. 

    Before I had children, I enjoyed a romantic dinner out planned by the gentleman.  I enjoyed dressing up for the night out. Perhaps followed by a show.  I had all the time in the world and no one else to worry about but myself.

    After having children, I just want to feel appreciated.  I don't need to dress up to have a good time.  Although having the TIME to doll myself up, that sort of thing, along with time to relax is precious to me.

    NO! I would rather have a heartfelt trip from my husband to do some of the things I've been begging him to do all year long, like going for a walk at the lake with the puppies, going to get ice cream together, visiting a bookstore and coming home with s load of books (even if it's just the thrift store), and finishing the day with some great Mexican food. I'm a quality time kinda girl though! smile

    It is the thoughtfulness of the gift that counts. The gift  should show that the man really knows his lady (does he get her the chocolate cherries she loves best, for example or a generic box of candy). They say, "it is the thought that counts", so a man should put some thought into his gift. The gift might be the man making dinner and making her favourite dish or taking her to her favourite restaurant. And a nice card of course (something that tells her again that he knows her well; it can be a homemade card or store bought).

    If she is me, she enjoys a relaxing evening, which begins with good champagne and great music on the Bose stereo. Meanwhile, my man is cooking a rosemary chicken and a gourmet salad--all by himself. He has also taken the time to purchase a decadent dessert, which will remain a surprise. On the coffee table is a sweet bouquet of flowers he has thoughtfully chosen. The bouquet contains her favorite colors. Her feet are propped up as she sips champagne, takes in the beautiful music and the scent of rosemary herbs, as the votives burn softly on the fireplace mantle. Upon that mantle is a small, beautifully wrapped package, along with a card. Turns out, the card iis sexy and oh so funny. And the gift? Jewelery, of course. Something that sparkles. After dinner, they talk, he rubs her feet, they laugh. They go to bed holding each other all night long, and awake the next morning to make delicious, langorous love... after he serves her some hot, rich coffee.
    Works for me, anyway. The lingerie?...not so much, but it's a great stocking stuffer for Xmas..

    I love getting lingerie from my husband. I will say, however, that lingerie speaks more of "I want you" rather than "I love you", so I would hope if my hubby gifts me with lingerie this year there may be a flower in there, too, as flowers seem to naturally express "love".
    As for other gifts, an evening away from the kids is always nice. Or doing a fix-it-up chore that's been put off. The most romantic thing my husband did was to have a star named for me - that was awesome smile
