MyLoveBook - Why My Valentine's Gift Was Better Than Yours

As mentioned in an earlier post, I decided to buck tradition and write my girlfriend a book for Valentine's Day.

Flowers?  Kid's Stuff.

Chocolates?  Sooooo last century.

Yep, the newest thing is getting a published book for your sweetheart.

The earlier post went over the process of making the book, options, shipping speed, and all that jazz.  This post will cover the delivery and the reaction.

Within 24 hours of finalizing the book, it was shipped and on it's way.  It arrived well before V-Day, which made things difficult for me.

You see, this is an awesome gift, and I couldn't wait to see the reaction I'd get for it.

I decided to celebrate Valentine's Day early this year.  Since I travel a lot, I wasn't sure if I'd be around on Tuesday, so we took time Saturday to spend time together.

I told her to close her eyes, and then I slipped the book into her hands.

Seriously.  Raptor eyes on a hot chick?  Uber sexy...
She was floored.  The book is 36 pages long, and the snippet you see to the left was one of the 36 pages.  It was only 600-700 words in all, but it took her nearly an hour to get through every page.

She kept melting, and tearing up.  She couldn't stop smiling.

If I had thought things through, I would have saved this idea for when if if/when I propose another time.

As I mentioned before, this book is your words.  You put it together, page by page, so it really means something.  It's heartfelt, and at an extremely reasonable price.  I may write another book like this for Mother's Day and give it to my mom.

If you're looking to earn some major points, or just have your better half fall deeper in love with you, I highly recommend MyLoveBook to anyone and everyone.  This was BY FAR the best gift she's received.  (How do I know?  She's told me so about six times since Saturday...)

Speaking of major points, this V-Day was a good one for me.  I am now over half-way to having enough points for my goal!!

Just over 3 years, and I'm almost at 60%!  Wooo!!!
(At this rate, I'll be able to cash in while I can still get it up!)


Happy Valentine's Day to you all.
Please Share it! :)

Great going, man. Awesome thing to do! :D

Ellen Lloyd said...

I've done something similar, but simpler and homemade. My bf and I are exchanging lists of what makes the other person wonderful/amazing...

...and although he doesn't follow all the blogs I follow, he has a tendedncy to visit my blog at random times and click through on links. I can't 100% guarantee that he won't see this comment. Dang.

So although I would like to describe what I made in more detail, it will have to wait! I'll come back tomorrow if I remember. =P

According to Jewels said...

That is an incredibly sweet Valentine's Day gift, even if the motivation behind it was getting another dude in bed with you two. That is the kind of threesome you wanted, right? ;)

I am sure she loved the book and will treasure it. That is a very romantic gesture...now if only you had shared that idea early enough for other guys to score off of it. lol

Happy Valentine's Day

This.is.me said...

aww that's really sweet!

I wish giving a man a Valentine gift was easier... Since I couldn't come up with anything this year, I surprised him with the possibility of me being pregnant. How cool is that?

Workingdan said...

My wife and I don't really observe Valentines day but this book looks like a thoughtful gift! Well played, sir! Well played!

Now go get that threesome!

Funny bugger...

Happy Valentines Day.

Katsidhe said...

This post MIGHT have made my stone-cold icy bitch heart twinge a bit.

I'm going to (just this once!) forgo my usual inclination to say something filthy and instead say that this was a really sweet gift, Tater-man.~ =)

Just Keepin It Real, Folks! said...

I'm sure you got enough action after giving her that book that you can barely walk. Major points dude!!!!!!

Bozo said...

I bet she kept tearing up! I did just reading this post! What a sweet guy you are. Happy Valentine's Day to you both.

Random Girl said...

I love this idea! This would really be the perfect gift, not just for Vday, but for any time you wanted someone to know that you really are thinking of them and all the things you love about them. That's awesome! Second best gift ever, after the 3some of course because that's the gift that keeps giving...am I right??

Lady Estrogen said...

6 times 'a thank you! Whoa! Good one.
Love love love your Threesomometer.

Zombie said...

Youre more than half way there! :D

Haven said...

Crazy but true female tip: If you get something uber special for your significant other, don't give it to anyone else. Even your mom. She'll recognize it as sweet, but secretly be slightly crusehd that some of the unique specialness is now shared with someone else.

This is a really sweet gift. I'd probably be insanely embarassed hahah. I don't know how to deal with true affection well. Your girlfriend is uber lucky.

Hey Monkey Butt said...

Happy V-Day. That's a really awesome idea. I'm diggn the mothers day idea book, Mom would love that! :) thanks!

Gaping Mind said...

Awhh! That's an amazing present to give! And if you can think of something so unique for Valentine's day, I'm certain that you will find something better for (when/if/when you propose) another time.

Dude, right on. Congrats on the perfect gift. :)

Nicky said...

That gift was so awesome, I'm going to add 3 points to my man's threesome-o-meter. For a grand total of 3 points. He thanks you, man.

The Reckmonster said...

BOWCHICKAWOWOW! That's a total "Gettin' Laid Tonight" kind of gift if I ever saw one! (AND a BJ, too) LOL. Seriously - that was a very thoughtful gift. You closet sap, you!!!

~Jazz said...

GREAT gift!! While the man in my life probably wouldn't appreciate it, it's definitely a good idea for my mom. :)

Shutterbug said...

such a nice, thoughtful gift! didn't think you had it in you... kidding! hope that you had a great valentine's night! ;)

Amy said...

Excellent idea, except that I am totally incapable of being mushy. Maybe if I start now I'll have enough thoughts to fill a book by 2020....

Thank, Q said...

Thanks for the idea when it's too late to get one myself! LOL!

I think it's pretty cool. I'm going to look into that since I have a 10th anniversary coming in April.

Good luck on that menage!

The Offended Blogger said...

Aww!!

My hubs asked me for a threesome once when we were still dating. I agreed but for some reason he didn't want to go through with it.

I guess he didn't like Fernando as much as I did... ;)
