Best not to steal Valentine flowers from graves, say women
Valentine’s Day flowers bought at the last minute from a petrol station forecourt are better received by a beloved than flowers stolen in a panic from a graveyard, according to a survey by Bride magazine. However, the latter might be acceptable as long as they are red roses and the ‘In Sympathy’ card had been sensitively amended or better still removed.
Most Bride readers added that they preferred to receive a Valentine card with the correct postage on it, but a minority said they didn’t mind visiting their local Royal Mail Sorting Office to pay the surcharge ‘just to let people know’ they had received a Valentine card.
Last in the list of popular Valentine gifts, according to the magazine’s readership, is a box of Thornton’s chocolates wrapped by a Thornton’s shop assistant.
