Unless you’ve been living in a hole the last few weeks, you’ll have noticed it’s Valentine’s Day next week.
But if your amour is on a diet (so no chocolates); is allergic to flowers (so no red roses); and hates cheese/tackiness (that’ll be a ‘no’ to teddies, satin hearts, etc etc), what on earth can you buy them?
My solution? A great big heart-shaped umbrella, £9.99, in red, fuchsia or pale pink, from www.find-me-a-gift.co.uk (or £19.99 from Implivia at www.amazon.co.uk in red, pink, white, black, navy or silver). It’s unusual, slightly kooky, and if it’s chucking it down with rain, as it usually does mid-February, you can shelter underneath it together, all romantic-like.
