With only two sleeps to go until Valentine's Day, we’re just grateful the holiday falls on a weekend. V-day on a work day is just plain hideous: shops full of confetti and glitter, heart-shaped balloons on the underground, the excitement of an unexpected card (not that we believe in the contrived, hallmark holiday…), and let-down when you recognise your mothers handwriting.
If you’re card-less this V-day rest assured you’re not alone. A new survey has revealed almost half of UK couples will boycott Valentine's Day because they think it’s too commercial and want to save money.
Still there’s always one, isn’t there, who goes over the top. A dozen red roses – every day for a week. Or a singing cupidogram (true story! The poor girl in question dumped the sender shortly after). But this is nothing compared to some A-list romantics.
