Ben Affleck famously gave J-Lo a $105,000 diamond-encrusted toilet seat and this was recently voted the least romantic gesture of all time. In recognition of a day about as romantic as the marketing initiatives that keep it alive, The Guardian has compiled some of the worst ever ideas for Valentine. These include:
- Morrison’s “Valentines £8 Meal Deal” – A starter + Main + Side + Dessert + Bottle of wine. Your choice from selected products. Prosecco and roses also available. Offer ends 14th February.
- If you’re going out, JD Wetherspoon offer a Valentine’s weekend special – two steaks and a bottle of wine for £14.99.
- The British Lung Foundation has just published a leaflet on sex and breathlessness.
- If money’s a real issue, Poundland offer a range of Valentine’s goodies, including fluffy dice and a Hot Stuff Teddy Bear, both for a quid.
