I’ve seen so many sweet and poetic products on the market lately that I thought Valentine’s day would be a great time to make use of them. Often Valentine’s day turns out to be an odd sort of event where supermarkets and shops sell some truly awful and overpriced stuff, which we end up buying at a loss for any better ideas. So why not put a bit of thought behind your choice this year – it doesn’t have to be particularly red or heart shaped, it just has to radiate love : ) [feel free to forward this link onto anyone special!].
