ARDMORE, OK - Plenty of husbands and boyfriends were shopping for their sweethearts on Tuesday evening.
Cecil Doss was looking for a card for his wife of 57 years. "I want to make her feel good when she reads it, and I like it too," Doss said.
We also found one husband planning to bake a cake. "I'm just trying to be creative and to do something a little bit different," S.S. Fields said. "I'm always trying to. You know you don't just tell them on Valentine's, you tell them all the time."
Brad Pletcher said he traded in for a new car for his wife last week, but he still wanted to get her something for Valentine's Day, so he picked up a card and bath products.
While looking at flowers, Bob Edinger noted that waiting until Valentine's Day gets you the freshest flowers.
Chris McDonald had a big red bear as he waited in the checkout line.
"I've spent a lot of money on her. I bought new furniture, a refrigerator and all. She should be happy," McDonald said. "She's a good wife, she deserves whatever I give her."
Meanwhile, one wife who runs the finances at home was waiting for a gift from her husband.
"I''m expecting it by in the morning, because he's already asked me for the money," Dawn Andrews said.
Cards for relatives were still in stock but those for spouses were running low at one store after a busy day on Monday.
"They've bought all of our cards and all of our chocolates are nearly gone," Hallmark store manager Denise Coffey said.
