Dads Talk: Favorite Valentine’s Day Gifts

Author GreatDad Writers
Submitted 08-04-2009

Valentine’s Day is the perfect occasion for wives and kids to show their love and appreciation for dads. Fortunately many dads receive and cherish the gifts and memories which make this day extra special for them.  Here are some of our readers who have mentioned their favorite Valentine’s Day gifts that they have received over the years.

“The best Valentine’s Day gift I ever received was this past Valentine’s Day! My daughter and wife made me a batch of red velvet (yum! my absolute favorite!) cupcakes and hand-delivered them to my office; along with a Valentine’s Day card hand-written by the both of them! Also, my six year-old daughter, gave me her best five-minute rendition of Whitney Houston’s ‘I Will Always Love You’ in front of all my co-workers! It was the ‘sweetest thing’ I’ve ever witnessed!”
-LeAndrew, Dallas, TX

“My wife had been saving (behind my back) and surprised me with a 55″ wide screen television. It was awesome!!! Of course we both are enjoying it. She’s an awesome woman!”
-Kevin, Blue Springs, MO

“My wife treated me to a trip to a day spa. It was the best because it made me feel special.”
-Buddy, Jefferson, ME

“My wife made me a great meal this past Valentine’s Day.”
-Gus, El Paso, TX

“The best gift I received was my blackberry. Can’t live without it now, and have been wanting it forever.”
-David, Largo, FL

“I would say my best gift was a trip to Disneyland!”
-James, Anaheim, CA

“Best Valentine’s gift was a card from my wife. What she wrote meant a lot to me.”
-Timothy, Lexington, MA

“My wife gave me a very loving hug, and said ‘I LOVE YOU’.”
-Morgan, Salem, MA

“Can’t beat a simple kiss”
-Jacob, Helena, MT

“Every year my wife buys me a box of dark chocolate raspberry jellies from our hometown candy shop. I could buy them myself but somehow they taste better knowing she bought them for me.”
-Robert, Manahawkin

On a lighter note:
“A Ukulele from my girl friend. Then I had to play it for her.”
-Robby, Charlotte

“Come on, I’m a guy. I don’t remember these things all the time. So I’d probably say the best gift was a home cooked meal.”
-Jim, Nashua

“The best Valentines Day gift I ever received was getting dumped! Hard to believe, but it was the best gift because I got my freedom back and stopped trying to please a girl who was totally wrong for me.”
-Bruce, Laguna Niguel
