The most unusual gift I ever received on Valentines Day was a box of Cracker Jacks. My husband, which at the time was my boyfriend, had brought me a box of candy, made me some brownies and given me a box of Cracker Jacks.
My niece who at the time was about 4 years old, ask me to please open the box so she could have some. When I opened the box there was an engagement ring stuck right in the top. It was then that I had remembered Jim asking me at one time, what kind of ring I wanted. Since I was not a person that really liked jewelry that much and didn't wear much, I had told him that I didn't care if it came out of a Cracker Jack Box.

Roses, Roses, Roses
Last Valentines Day, my fiancé' gave me the sweetest gift imaginable. He woke me up that morning with a lovely breakfast and a rose. The rose was not yet fully bloomed, it was a beautiful red, and smelled divine.
As I took the rose to my nose to smell it something tickled my nose. I looked down and pulled out a small ribbon that had been placed inside the rose, the ribbon had small gold printing on it that read: "Happy Valentines Day".
Later that day he gave me another rose this time pink, and yet again it had another ribbon. This one read: "I Love You with all my heart and soul". Throughout the day I was given eight different roses, each one with a special message. The last rose had a ribbon with a diamond ring attached and read: "Will You Marry Me"

The best Valentine I have received was when my boyfriend gave me a journal on our days together. He included funny stories, special notes and his thoughts about me on that day. He included things I didn't even remember like what I was wearing and more.
Then on Valentine's Day, he gave me the journal and I paged through it. I wanted to read it but he was there so I went to put it down and he said "there's more" so I keep paging through it and on the last page it read, "when I write the story of my life could I include you in it?"
At first, I didn't get it but when he got down on one knee and proposed I was literally swept off my feet.

One Ring, Two Ring
When I was preparing to ask my wife to marry me. I was trying to decide how to ask her. I was being a little devil. I was asking her when she was going to ask me to marry her and teasing her for 2 weeks. It was driving her nuts.
I had purchased 2 rings, one with a nice diamond and another that was black and white and looked like a cow.
I finally took her to a nice eatery to give her rock (COW Ring). I had bought a nice case. It was perfect. I told her I want you to have this. She opened it up and I mean to tell you, I had never seen that expression before or since. She was laughing so hard. I still made her wait another week before I gave her the real diamond. I told her all along, I was waiting for her to ask, but finally I did ask her to marry me.

On Valentine's Day 48 years ago, my boyfriend gave me a pretty red satin heart shaped box of candy. I was thrilled, as I had never received such a gift before.
I was even more thrilled upon opening it and my eyes were drawn to one of the pieces of candy with a sparkle. Imbedded in the top of one of the center pieces of candy was an engagement ring.
