Ah, Valentines Day! A topic which divides many of us.
Personally, I sit somewhere in the middle. Of course, it goes without saying that you should and can show someone you love and care for them any day of the year. But we all know how easy it is to take our loved ones for granted amongst the day-to-day comings and goings of life, and Valentines Day is what I like to think of as a reminder. And you know what? Some people do need that reminder. If you don’t want to ‘celebrate’, then don’t! But then don’t take it upon yourself criticise those who do like to acknowledge the day whether it be with a silly card, bunch of flowers, a romantic dinner or thoughtful gift. It’s simple, really.
When Queensgate Shopping Centre got in touch with a Valentines challenge for me to take part in, I was more than up for the job. My task was simple, hunt out the best Valentines gifts available at Queensgate’s many shops for a variety of budgets.
