3. A massage gift certificate. OR Write a note that says, “I Knead You” and give them a massage.

4. Pizza. Valentine’s Day is Friday. Many runners do their long run on Saturday morning, so this would be a great time for the carb-loaded meal of their choice!

Question: What’s on your wish list?


  1. says

    Great list! I am sure my valentine will be waiting to shop until Friday. When he buys me a massage gift certificate or anything of that nature he literally tries to change the date purchased because it’s always the day of! :)

  2. says

    My husband made it 100% clear before we even started dating that he absolutely does not do Valentines Day, so my wishlist is totally blank.

    On the other hand, our tax return should roll in that day, so I may be my own Valentine 😉

  3. says

    Chocolate covered strawberries from Shari’s berries (energy for running). Seriously, I don’t eat chocolate except for these yummy berries and cherries too.

  4. Rebecca says

    I love #10 because I spent all day yesterday begging the bf to let me take in a foster puppy for awhile. And by the time I make the drive to get him and return Thursday night it’ll be Friday. The bf is probably patting himself on the back because he just realized we won’t be going out to dinner due to puppy arrival.

  5. says

    Love this. I just bought the book you recommended as a little Valentine’s Day present….to myself!

    (Also, totally agree with the Edible Arrangements! My sis got me one after my last marathon and it was PERFECT.)
