We don't do chocolates, champagne - she doesn't drink alcohol and I don't like champagne - and what we have done for the last 10 years is make each other a valentine that is an art project. This year I have been making a mobile made out of three hearts, each connected one above the other by red wire to small fishing swivels that rotate 360 degrees. The top heart is connected to an aluminum computer silver, heat sink that is connected to the wall. This is one of the better projects I have made over the years. We won't exchange them till tonight, so I don't know what I will get just yet.
See you say its overrated, but you and your other half are actually making even more of a song and dance about it than people who just send cards and flowers and crap like that! At least your fuss is original and personal though. I quite like what you do - definitely couldn't be bothered to do it myself though.
