I picked up Plants v Zombies for my Steam gift basket - might be nice to give to someone later, or play myself.

Also, Valentines bundle from these guys just started too:

Do like I did. if unsure whether you'll play,just put it in your gift inventory.

Same here. That's why I tried to reduce my spending last year, and did it with reasonable success, even though I still bought tons of games. Unfortunately I discovered Steam Gifts and since I enjoy giving away stuff this adds an incentive to buy more games. If I don't play them I can always give them away.

As for Plants vs. Zombies, I have both the PC and Android versions and I played it more on my phone, because it's a more accessible device and the game is really suited to touch control. So I'd recommend going with that version of the game (which costs $3) if you have a suitable device.

I would have bought Mass Effect 2 but it was just for N America and i'm in europe. I'll wait for steam to make the same offer.
