Valentine’s Day: Last-minute gift ideas

vday hello.jpg
Valentine’s Day is a holiday that can drive fear into the hearts of men around the world. What do you buy the woman you love to show her how much you care? What is too little? What is too much? Is this the year you buy a ring? Is this the year you sweep her off to Barbados?

All of those, of course, require extensive planning. So if you aren’t the type to have been preparing for the big V-day (no, men I don’t mean V for Vendetta) then I have a few suggestions for you. Above are fool-proof gifts that any woman would absolutely love to receive on the day we all know was created by greeting card companies to make more money.

But who cares why the day is celebrated? The bottom line is to tell the one you’re with that you love them with all your heart. Embrace it – though don’t forget to whip out your credit card at the same time!

All ten gifts are easily available, so rush out and pick one up before it’s too late and the shops are closed. And for the ultimate, buy the lot, get a hotel room for the night and create a giant gift bed for her to fall into!
