One rather chauvinistic man has made a list for Valentine’s Day that will put a smile on your face we hope.  A little bit of light entertainment for a laugh.  Is it worth sharing – only you can tell us! 

My dearest wife is always going on and on and ON about NOT making a fuss over her on Valentine’s Day.  She repeats that it’s the thought that counts.

Well, I put a lot of thought into the gifts from previous February 14ths but she didn’t quite take to any of them like I assumed she would. Here’s my list – see what you think:

  • A bag and a belt

Now our vacuum cleaner will work better I hope when she pushes it around.

  • Brand new mop and bucket.

I was thinking it would be fun to see what colour the floor was because I couldn’t remember.

  • Romantic dinner at fast food restaurant.

I was thinking that she might like to go inside for a change and sit in, instead of fetching dinner at the drive through.

  • Chocolates left-over from last year’s candy box.

I was thinking of how proud she’d be of me for not wasting food. She’s been nagging me for years to recycle.

  • Midnight moped ride through the park.

I was thinking that I’m getting too old to be peddling on the bike.

  • Dozen roses printed on high quality photo paper.

One of my favourites this –  I was thinking these would last a lifetime instead of just a week.  I could even give her colouring in paper – she could appreciate selecting her favourite colour.

  • 45 second back massage.

I was thinking any longer and she might think I was interested in something else.

Did this put a smile on your face for Valentine’s Day?  


  1. In my opinion the whole Valentine’s Day thing is just another way to make you spend money. Have never given or received a gift or flowers or a card on February 14 ever! When I was very young it was supposed to be from a secret admirer, now they want everybody exchanging gifts. Just another American idea we’ve embraced.

    • Totally agree and yes back in the good ole days, it was a card from a secret admirer. You usually hoped it was from someone you had a crush on lol. My husband is my valentine every day not just one day. The sheep just follow sadly 🙁

    • This is so true. I think the young ones are hooked on it though. Even yr 7 grandson wanted to give gift. He wasn’t allowed though.

  2. Very funny. I gave my hubby a nice card and cooked a special lunch. You don’t have to spend a lot of money.

  3. Very funny.Me i would have a giggle and for the roses i would break out my pencils and colour in.Lol.

  4. 2 sons, 2 daughter inlaw, 2 grand kids, I got heart shape t lights , card hand written letter, cuddles, and love from all of them. Just for being there, for them.they told me it a love day and they loved me.

  5. I think he brought along a sense of humour, but not a very good sense of his wife.

  6. It’s not really an Australian event. I am sure retailers are promoting the hell out it for the monetary benefits… Very happy for America to keep it..
    Not interested…

  7. It was me Owen .. I was hoping it would be reciprocal. 🌹. 😂
