Valentine’s Day is not a day me and The Man have ever celebrated in our 22 years together.
Neither of us like being told to be romantic and buy stuff by the powers that be.
Our idea of romance is more around the little things – a cute note of love or encouragement left around the house, someone making a beautiful dinner midweek without the usual negotiations about who is making dinner, a spontaneous lie-in at weekends and a small gift out of the blue.
Talking of gifts – after this long together I do not do hints.
It always ends badly.
I collate a list for him across a year of things I have seen and am not adverse to receiving whether it be birthday .. soon (hint hint) Christmas or random ” You are an amazing wife and mother and I am so lucky to have you in my life” present.
So whether you need to tag the loved one or you want to #Treatyoself here are 4 fun presents that I would be happy to receive any day of the week and wouldn’t even care if they arrived on time for V day or not.
Fuck chocolate, uggs, beauty products and crap trashy lingerie ..
