Over-commericalised? Yes. Over-Sentimentalised? Yes. But, woe betide any poor fella who fails to adequately spoil the lady in their his on Valentines Day. If your man somehow failed to see TLC’s Valentines Gift Guide last year (here) and you were presented with some, albeit quiiiiite nice, supermarket flowers and a box of Dairy Milk, you clearly need to take a more direct approach this February. Perhaps email this webpage of flirtatious and fashionable fancies to your darling, wonderful, love-of-your-life, sweetheart alongside some mild, yet supremely accurate and detailed, threats of your choice… That ought to help. If not, I’ve always found self-gifting particularly rewarding.
