Valentines Day...

On February 14th every year, gifts and gestures of love are exchanged across the globe in celebration of St.Valentine. 

St. Valentine comes from the legend that he served as a priest in Rome in the 3rd century. When Emperor Claudius 2nd outlawed marriage for young men as when single they made better soldiers, St Valentine saw this as a great injustice and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. When his actions were uncovered, the Emperor ordered him to death... not the cheeriest of legends we must admit!

So if your celebrating Valentines this year with your partners, why not ditch the chocs and flowers and go alternative - we've put together the perfect list of unusual gifts for you to give this year!
