What's your favorite Valentine's Day oblation?

It's getting near the middle of February, a time when those of us who are single bemoan this fact and those of you who aren't are expected to produce an offering to remain that way. So what's your ritual sacrifice of choice? Candy? Jewelry? Flowers? Or do you rail against the commercially imposed standards of society and get your significant other something more out of the ordinary? Ladies, do you often get your gentlemen presents, or is it mostly a one-way street? Personally, I'm in favor of composing sonnets. It's inexpensive, about as old-school as you can get, and doesn't put money in the pocket of De Beers. When e'er I see you after lab is done, You make me wish that zero could divide If only so our 2 could equal 1, Such that our theories could be unified, You move like music set to calculus, A SIN-curve body makes sin seem divine, Curves like space-time but oh so sinuous, That make me wish that I were your COS, But TAN to this topic, I do feel Some measure of quantum uncertainty, What your superposition might reveal, Should I ask you, what you might say to me, So 'til I feel that I could stand the shock, I think I'll leave that cat inside the box.

I tend to do as the whim takes me.

In the past, it's been poetry, chocolates, breakfast in bed, once I got her flowers delivered at work.

Last year, I carved a pair of entwined wooden hearts.

I'm making again this year, but it's proving fiddlier than I planned. It should be ready to be installed while she sleeps on Saturday morning.

Wow, the entwined hearts thing is radical. Despite my boyscout background, whittling has never been my forte...
I need more practice - those hearts took me a full week of evenings carving.

Do i want to know? and do you think it might be best to have a first aid kit on hand..

Haha, no, I just want it to be ready when she comes down in the morning. I have a horrible feeling I may have to beat the Sun up on Saturday...

I'm under strict orders NOT to buy anything for the boss this year. She's not material ;)
I've never really gotten much for Valentine's, and I don't really expect it. :) My birthday is two days after anyway, so it seems weird to celebrate such a weird corporate holiday right before.
