    I’d get Cat some erm.. props 😉 to assist her in playing with Bones. If I don’t get to have him, at least I can live vicariously through her. 😉

      I would give Vlad a signed set of the Night Huntress books, and a scrapbook of all public mentions of Dracula or vampires that he is behind, since he is such a publicity hog 🙂

    I would buy Tate a secret Valentines mini vacation. I would have picked Bones but Cat might break me. 😉
    Poor Tate is so uptight it might just help him a little.

    I’d get Bones one of those naughty coupon use on Cat, of course! Or on me…with Cat’s permission. Which I’d never get, of course. lol ;-P

    For Valentine’s day, I think I’d give Cat a bunch of little things that she could take home to Bones and laugh about with him. The gift would contain things like vampire tv shows on DVD (Blood Ties, Buffy, True Blood, etc.), some of that blood packet drink stuff you can get at Hot Topic, and at least a couple of “vampire” stuffed animals. Of course, then I’d give her some godiva chocolate because I don’t know anyone who can say no to godiva. 🙂

    Hmmm for valentines day I would give Cat a vampire Teddy bear ( look ’em up they’re so cute!) so she has something fluffy and fangy to cuddle with when Bones isn’t there. 🙂

    I would give Ian a puppy to keep him company when, um, I couldn’t be around. I think he’s actually very lonely and a dog would be a great companion.

    I’d get Cat a blood vial necklace (–BV–Blood-Vial-Celtic-Knots–Lovers-Vampire-Gift-Set-Chains.htm) so she can keep a bit of Bone’s blood in it in case he’s not around and she wants a snack. I’d special order it so it’s not silver. And I’d also give her a bloody Gloomy Bear ( because I think she’d get a kick out of it.

  22. Bakin_Goddess

    February 2, 2011

    I would give a gift of a “blood-chocolate”……edible body paint for bones to paint on Kitty’s neck……just so when he’s finished smacking on her and licks her neck he’ll get an extra.little treat…..and so would she…

  26. winterwaltz6

    February 2, 2011

    I’d take Ian as my Valentine. I’d probably attempt to find him some antique artifact for his collection, fail miserably and then just go with a large quantity of alcohol and a home cooked meal.

  27. midnite2232

    February 2, 2011

    I would take Spade as my Valentine…… I would tie myself up with a big red bow with a glass of wiskie in hand waiting in his bed.

  28. Ebbs

    I would give Bones a heart necklace, which you can open and in there you can find two pictures, one of him and one of me. <3

  29. jovialvampyre

    I would give to C&B the opportunity to relive their first kiss, since all lovers would like to make it !

  31. uapeople

    February 3, 2011

    Since Bones is taken and Vlad not yet, I think I’d buy Vlad a Netflix subscription and a flatscreen TV with Netflix and internet. Then we could watch all his favorite movies at his place together, since he’s such a movie buff. And he can quote any lines he wants or act out any scenes with me. LOL

  32. taradlp

    February 3, 2011

    I would love to share Valentines Day with Ian. I would give him a special chocolate stud to replace his special down under piercing for one editable delicious night.

  33. Ashkins529

    February 3, 2011

  36. kalynnick

    February 3, 2011

  37. rssteven10

    February 3, 2011

    I would arrange it so Bones could take Cat on a week getaway so they can spend some uninterupted time together. =] God knows they need it!

  38. Manx357

    February 3, 2011

  39. quimbayai

  40. RedReaper

    February 3, 2011

    I’d give Vlad a set of all the Dracula movies that have been made. And then I’d watch them with him so A) he could point out the inaccuracies and B) he wouldn’t be alone on Valentine’s Day

  41. rocastille

    February 3, 2011

    I would give Tate a love all his own.

  42. Rachel23

    February 3, 2011

    I’d give Ian a trip to anywhere in the world he wants to go. And I’d come along, of course…

  44. Sim Sim

    February 3, 2011

    So many good gifts already. Ok, to be slightly different, other than my undying love, I would give Cat & Bones my computer skills to use as needed when needed.

  48. Redcandy

    February 3, 2011

    I would get Ian a simple “Bite Me Valentine” card. He is that kind of one time fling guy that is going to show you a good time. I never had that. He has a lot of potential though, I mean over 200 years old he will grow up sometime 🙂

  49. drea268

    February 3, 2011

    OK to keep it PG….I would give Spade (my favorite!) a gift card to Bath & Body Works so we could go buy some fun shower stuff to lather up with!
