Valentine's day- whether you think it's an over commercialised pile of hooey, a day to celebrate the depth and breadth of your love or a sad day to be a singleton, it is approaching and even Covid can't stop the love on February 14th. Whatever your relationship status we have some ideas for you.
The traditional approach, the mystery..
The best thing about a Valentine's Day is when the card is signed with an X, is unknown and the mystery of your admirer is withheld and you can let your fantasy run away with you. For this level of secrecy we suggest disguising your handwriting by writing with your opposite hand – however, no adult wants the card to look like it illegible, so practice to maintain an air of sophistication. We also suggest sending the card or gift via post so no camera doorbells pick up the drop off! Perhaps send your loved ones, our door step cheese selection boxes and with a bit of luck you might be asked to share it! A relaxing bath package pre-date could be just what the love of your life is after, filled with everything to get in the mood.
