Don’t Ask Me What I Want for Valentine’s Day

ValentineDear Husband,

Please don’t ask me what I want for Valentine’s Day, but take the initiative to figure it out on your own. It is not romantic for me to pick out my own gift. Nor are the following gifts romantic for ANY wife or girfriend to receive:


  • Vacuum cleaner or other housework items
  • Money (this really takes no thought and unless you have specifically asked your mate for money it is a cop out)
  • Socks
  • Lawn Mower or Power Tools
  • Membership to a Fitness Club (this one is just insulting really)
  • A pet (yes, please give me one more thing to take care of in my already busy life)
  • Kitchen appliances

I’m sure there are others and please feel free to add your own unromantic gift stories. Any husbands out there reading Crabby Housewives, do yourselves a favor at at the very minimum take the time to choose a really sweet and romantic card and buy a bouquet of flowers. It is Valentine’s Day, not Get Me Something Practical Day.
