There will always be, let’s say, the ‘classic route’ into Valentines. Red roses, diamond rings and chocolates and smellies delivered in heart-shaped boxes and for some recipients, that will hit the er, sweet spot.
Aside from the obvious expense of some of these tokens of love, isn’t there another question that lovers need to ask themselves? How can I show how much I love them by getting them something they really, really want? And given the current economic climate, the caveat is: ‘within budget’.
Finding a more meaningful gift doesn’t have to cost the earth – small, affordable presents letting your loved ones appreciate that you ‘know them’ makes them valued and means so much more.
