I was wondering what to do for Valentines Day, and although girlfriend has passed comment several times about how she hates the commercialisation of Valentines and how it is such a rip off etc etc I am not so naive as to NOT go out and spend money for it, simply because I'm assured it would be a waste of money. You might believe that when you are told it once, but the result of not buying flowers, card etc is the romantic equivalent of letting loose the four horsemen of the apocalypse at the same time as getting a bit nosey about the contents of the box that Pandora left in your care.
A quick visit to the Interflora website will give you an indication of just how much money people are prepared to spend on impressing their other half (or someone they would like to be their other half).
A dozen red roses starts at £40, you then have the option of adding chocolates and champagne to it too. For the serious romantic though, you can send 100 red roses, a snip at only £500! Excellent value for money given that they come with a full 5 day guarantee. You can also top that with a helium filled 'love balloon' for that extra special touch.
I'll have to think carefully about this one.
