    I actually spend about $20 on Valentine's Day. But I spend those 20 bucks on really good things. I bought a collectible of something my BFF likes and a card.

    ...maybe more than $500. I have a standing order to send my wife flowers to her office the first of each month. So Valentine's day adds to the count. But, who's counting?

    Actually, corporate or non corporate is an irrelevent issue for me,
    in this case. The main reason that I'm not spending a dime on
    Valentine's day, is I don't have a significant female in my life at
    the present time, and as such, it's illogical for me to spend any
    money on Valentine's day, before my luck in love improves, and
    I do get myself a significant female to share my life with.

    It's just another corporate holiday that with all the advertising has made them rich.

    The question is insulting on several levels and seems to be a thinly disguised ad for a party store that stands to benefit by guilting people into spending money on the upcoming corporate holiday.

    Women who make a big deal out of Valentine Day tend to be insecure, high-maintenance, or petty. Valentine Day used to have a sweet quality to it. Now it seems more of a non-descript obligatory function that has no meaning other than $$$ for corporate America.

    I use to spend plenty on my girlfriend. But I don't have a girlfriend today so i won't be spending a dime, Lol.

    I remember 7 years ago on V-day (my gift to her) I picked my girlfriend up and drove to the airport, we flew to Las Vegas for dinner and a show........... gambled some, then returned to the air port to go home, and at the air port slot machine she won 5000 dollars 10 minutes before we had to board the aircraft, Lol, so she took me to Vegas the next weekend, lol.

    And it's not really what you spend, it's how you spend your time together showing each other how much you care................. I mean that is the point!

    Actually, $20 is enough for a single long-stem rose and a bottle of Tosti Asti 'sparkling wine.'

    A bouquet of roses -
    Only I would never throw away the exorbitant 80$ for a bouquet that lasts 1 week,
    25$ will be more like it.
    Wouldn't mind paying 500$ or even a 1000$ but not for a corporate holiday...
    It must be a more meaningful event.

    I do celebrate corporate holidays I just hat valentines day. What's the freaking point of valentines day? There's already birthdays, aniverseries, honey moons, marriage, dating/ date nights, family nights. Practicaly everyday's a valentines day what the hell's so special about Febuary the 14th? In my perspective it's a Waste-your-money-tines Day, which I have no interest in participating in.

    Something personal that says “I Love YOU” can be put together for less than $100 if you take the time and put the gift together yourself. The knowledge that YOU took the time and care to do something personal and sweet will mean more than the price tag.
