We all know that feeling…

You’re walking through the shopping mall and you’re suddenly surrounded by a sea of red and pink, rows and rows of chocolates and what seems like every teddy bear under the sun…

You know, that sinking feeling when you realise that Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and you haven’t planned anything further than tonight’s dinner, let alone a box of chocolates for your special someone.

It’s at this moment that, aside from the sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach, a host of questions start running through your mind like:

  1. What do I even get for my sweetheart aside from Lindt or Ferrero Rocher?
  2. Do I go with the old faithful bunch of roses?
  3. Do I break the bank with dinner at a fancy shmancy restaurant and then suffer through beans on toast until month end?
