My mom sends me cards and sometimes candy for all the holidays and sometimes just because. She sent me *2* get well cards last week. I think it is sweet and just reminds you that no matter what you mom is always going to be there.

In my heart, i knew it was a good thing. 
It is!  It shows love.  It says "You're special."  It says you're thinking of them.  It's one of those "little things" that individually hold more meaning than all the big things put together. 

I'm an anti-Valentine's Day person.  I've always had bad luck on that day, romantically-wise.  Even when I was married, my husband would disappoint me.  (He went out of his way to disappoint me on holidays, one of the many reasons he's now an ex  Wink  )  But even though I don't like the day romantically.. I always get my sons a little something.  They're now 24 and 19.  The 19 yr old is now living out of state, and I'm mailing a package to him of little nothings.  A small heart shaped box of Russel Stover candies.. I think they've got like 4 candies in them.  That's what I usually get each of them, but this year, because he's out of state, I'm throwing a bunch of other little things in there too.  Nothing extravagant, all things he doesn't need.. but hopefully will give him a smile. 

Basically, the day is supposed to be a romantic holiday, but I prefer to think of it as a day to show love, especially the non-romantic kind!

Just so you know, I got a Valentine's card yesterday from my mom. And when I called her to say thanks, she said "I'm sending another one because it was funny."

The thing you have to ask yourself is, do they enjoy it ? Because if they do, then there's no need to stop.

My father & step mum have always given me presents & candy on Valentines Day.

No, I don't think it's weird at all!  My family still celebrates and I'll be getting my daughter a few little valentine things and mailing my parents a card (sheesh, I better do that today!).  I'm making valentine goody bags for all the children of my co-workers, too - and let me assure you, I don't have romantic feelings for my coworkers children.   Roll Eyes

Maybe you need to get your friend a little something, too, so she feels what it's like to get a little unexpected present letting her know someone is thinking of her.  Maybe then she'll understand why you do it!  Smiley

I agree, I'm 32... my parents are divorced and I still get cards from both mom and dad for v-tine's day.  I think it so sweet.  Carry on darling   Grin

Oh my goodness no don't stop! If it makes you happy, then go on doing it.  My mom claims that "Cupid Angel" (along with the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus, depending on the holiday) still visits me and my siblings and we're in our 20s.
I think it's sweet and I love getting her things too!
