The worst Valentine gifts that I have come across are –
1 A musical chicken
2 A new set of teeth – removable or otherwise, I’m not sure.
3 A pack of four blank videos (admittedly this was some time ago)
4 A wheelbarrow – yes, really.
5 A ‘coin token’ for a shopping trolley (you know the kind that you need in Carrefour but NEVER in Waitrose)
Thankfully I didn’t receive (or give) any of these but hey, who says romance is dead?
So what treat will it be for your loved one this year? Something a little more special than these pitiful offerings it’s to be hoped.
A single red rose?
A dozen red roses?
A bunch of flowers? … from the petrol station … surely not?
Maybe a sentimental card?
Maybe a card overflowing with wit and humour?
Perhaps a diamond is on the cards … Or several.
What about something fragrant or something sweet and calorific and chocolatey?
Possibly all (or none) of the above….
