    I have a boyfriend of 6 1/2 months, he's 40 years old ( I like older men!!) muscular and tone (no fibbing) not a bandsman, but I just don't know what to get him for Valentines day. All the shops stock chocs in a heart shape and general over price tat. What do you get a man for valentines day, I'm just clueless on these things! :confused:

    I've always wondered that! Not that it matters for me this year :)

    So I'm going to be no help whatsoever. I want to know the answers though, for future reference (hopefully)!

    I'm an older man. Buy me something too please. Nice bottle of malt whisky will do nicely thanks. :)

    Aye, go down the Malt Whisky route. After 11 years of marriage, my missus usually asks what I want! Romantic, I know....

    Doesn't do malt whisky? Dump him, immediately, sounds like a football hooligan.

    If he's not a brassie, what sort of music does he like? CDs or Itunes vouchers is always a winner for a bloke.

    I will have to remember it is a family forum(!) but maybe get a bit personal?

    Breakfast in bed, luxurious massage, waited on hand and foot, use of the remote control, any takeaway he desires etc etc.
    Treat him like a King for a day - but pray he doesn't get used to it!

    I think Stella was wanting something special for her bloke, not the samo-samo we get every day ;)

    My partner and I keep a document on our Desktop with our "wish list" which we add to as we think of things we'd like/need. It means that we generally get each other the right things for Birthdays/Christmas/Valentines/Anniversaries etc.
    Not the most romantic way to go about it but it does save a lot of wasted money...

    A bloke once bought me a music stand.

    I was less than impressed, which must have been apparent.

    ''Well, you do need a new one''!

    How romantic.

    Did he go down on one knee when he gave it to you and say that you made beautiful music together and he wanted to play a permanent duet with you through life? No? Ah, well!

    Think Essex Elvis might disagree with you there - tech is NOT his thing ;)

    Although he does love his iPod I bought him from Christmas, after I had filled it up with lots of brass band choons for him!

    He's reasonably easy to buy for, but as he is a regular to this forum I cannot reveal what he will be receiving on the 14th of Feb!!
