Need Help - Valentine's or Birthday?

weather: sunny
outside: 8°C
mood: torn
[This post was originally Friends Only.]

I ordered userinfoHusband Guy a gift from Amazon: SSX 3 Soundtrack. He has SSX 3 for the Playstation 2 and loves it, so I thought he might like to have the music tracks too =)

I had it sent to me at work, but I honestly didn't think it would arrive in time for Valentine's Day, so I had it in mind to give it to him for his birthday (in June). Well, Office Manager Lady dropped off a huge box for me just now — it's the CD. My god, they ship CDs in the most gigantasmic boxes. =D

So, now I don't know when to give it to him: Valentine's or Birthday?

I can wait five months without blowing my cover, that's no problem. I got last year's birthday gift for him in March and kept it hidden until June.

We've never done anything for Valentine's anyway and I'm not sure I want to start now. I really don't want to feel like I'm feeding the Retail Stupidity™. I also don't want him to think that he has to do something for me. I've seen so much psychosis about gifts: remembering, forgetting, how big, not enough, timing and all that drama. I hate it and avoid it like the plague.

But there's a certain amount of *SQUEE* in wanting to give him something that I know he'd like and seeing him happy.

Maybe I've answered my own question, but what do you all think?

[Update - February 14, 2004]

I ended up giving it to him for Valentine's. I couldn't bear to make him wait until June. =}

Happy Valentine's, Sweetheart. =)

give it to him now! Sounds like something he'd think about getting himself, so you might as well eliminate the chance of that.

I totally know what you mean about the certain amount of *SQUEE* :) I got Robin (or rather, made for Robin) an awesome gift while I was working in the framing store. I basically redid a huge photocollage of panoramics and other assorted photos from our camping trips with his family, and made a new one from our trip to Hawaii. Nice mat background and huge ass frame, everything. But I made it before I started my new job... back in December.

I already had his holiday gift, so I figured I'd wait till Valentine's day. But I almost gave it to him on our half year anniversary cause I was just so darned excited.
