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?

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

Happy Valentine's, Sweetheart. =)

Wow. I seem to be the only one...
... who would advocate giving it to him tomorrow. Huh.

Why? Well, because it'd be nice. You might not like Retail Stupidity™ but maybe -he- does... and even if he didn't, it's one other day to celebrate your togetherness.

Some people think that every day for married couples can be Valentine's Day. But why not celebrate on the official day too? Couldn't hurt.
