Valentines Day. Love it or hate it, once February hits you can't escape it. Shops everywhere bombard you with images of cupid, love-struck couples and cards featuring admittedly nauseatingly cute kittens mewing "I love you" whilst the question on everybody's lips is "What are you doing for Valentines Day?"
I once worked with a girl who, when a stunning Valentine's bouquet was delivered for her, remained unmoved. I asked why, only to be told she'd let her suitor know exactly what she wanted, most importantly that the flowers be delivered so the entire office got a good look at them. She might as well have kicked romance up the arse.
As a soppy old romantic I absolutely love Valentine's Day. It's the most wonderful opportunity to show someone you love them through thoughtful actions, kind words and, of course, gifts. Whether you're looking to say 'I love you', want to ask her to move in or if you're about to pop the question, this weekend I've come up with a few gift ideas to hopefully make your girl smile.
