What do I get him for Valentine's day?

Basics: two gay dudes. 3 months duration so far. Going well. I'm going to visit him because he's out of town right now.

So he's at a writer's residency. Maybe something cozy for that? But what???

Posted:Hmmm... Are you going for cheesy, romantic, useful, funny or insert appropriate style of gift here? smile


Ooh! Ooh! He's a writer, so get him a Feather Quill pen type thing... One of the really big fluffy ones, like the plumes that were worn in Hats many many many years ago...

That's topical, AND can be used for other things as well!! wink

You can get a really classy ink well to go with it, so it can be an ornament too...

Or am I way off the Mark?

Posted:Hi Doc. How about a really nice bound journal for him to carry with him and write down his ideas on the move? A nice blank book is also inspiring.
Or how about massage oil and a massage session? Also goes down well with writers who sit for hours slumped over a keyboard - rub away his aches and pains....? wink

If it costs "a penny for your thoughts", but people give you their "two-pence worth", who is getting the extra penny?
