Yup, it's that time of year, Valentine's Day is nearly upon us again… and I've been inundated with press releases for any number of loosely affiliated products for weeks on end. Here, then, is my round up of some gift ideas… although I'd like to add that my favourite gifts are usually home made. Call me odd, but I like the thought that someone has put time into creating something - shopping does of course take time as well, but you could always put those hands to use instead of those legs. And if there's time for neither there's always the mouse to hand…. As to what to do on the big night: why not read my round up of Valentine's related events (including classes where you can make your loved a little special something).
