We don’t really ‘do’ Valentines, but that doesn’t stop me thinking about what might be on the cards if we did. Last year I got to live vicariously through the flower delivery for next door as I had to take them in and stare at them all day until they came to retrieve them. This year I’m unlikely to even get that!
But if there is someone slightly geeky in your life that you do want to give a token of your affection, then here are some great gift ideas:
Great if you’ve got kids in the house, have a tendency to forget to blow candles out or are quite clumsy – these 3 remote control candles look convincingly real (mainly because they actually are made from beeswax) and can be easily turned on or off from the comfort of your bed, bath or sofa.
Who doesn’t love Toothless? Build-a-bear have a special Toothless Valentines edition that you can stuff for your love, complete with a rose.
Record a special message to put inside him, or just fill him with a ROARRRRR.
Cadbury’s Roses Puzzle
The same great sweets in less fattening, more absorbing form. With 500 Cadbury’s Roses puzzle pieces that all look remarkably similar, it might actually be a labour of love to complete.
And unlike actual Cadbury’s Roses, you probably won’t be left with a box containing the last few bits that no-one likes.
Never be lost for some loving words, with a Love Hearts tube necklace hanging around. Be constantly reminded of short, random love orientated phrases to say to your valentine – HOLD ME, BE MINE or even FUN GUY.
Or get some matching jammy dodger keyrings! They’re pretty good too…
