    Valentines Day Freebie

    Once again it's that time of year when romantics, hopeless or otherwise find themselves ambling around certain shops and outlets searching for inspiration for that special gift.

    If you're anything like the majority of us at CP, this can be a monumental nuisance...and our experience has shown us that petrol station flowers and a transit-damaged Chocolate Orange certainly aren't Cupid's weapon of choice.

    So we've teamed up with fxnailz.co.uk to offer our account holders a Valentine's Day olive branch.

    Every email/text/webform we receive between now and 2pm Fri 11th Feb with a brief description of the worst gift you've given (Valenine's or otherwise) will be rewarded with a freebie from the site.

    As a starter for 10..mine was an ill thought 'gift' as a 17 yr old, handing my then gf a ring box with a 2p piece inside.Haplessly caught up in how the joke would have us both in fits of laughter. I neglected to buy an actual present.
    She freaked.We split soon after

    Fail

    Can I post here and still be eligible for a freebie? I am an account holder

    The worst gift that I have ever given was a holiday to Corfu and an engagement ring. Yep, that's the best present I've given too, but I've only ever done the whole valentine's thing for the OH's engagement as I don't believe in the whole thing so naturally because I have only done it once it is both the best and the worst.

    Nice work, I popped the question in Crete last year.Freebie winging its way to you.
    Did you find concealing an engagement ring abroad as difficult as I?

    worst valentine gift given - A work out dvd she said she wanted, so I got it for her, she then flipped at me for getting it, so I decided to take her out to do her fav things (bowling, a meal, then a drink) and got an ear bashing for not being spontanious or romantic...we soon split

    I am an account holder too.

    Worst Valentine's Day - the one 8 days after I'd had my wisdom teeth out when I looked like I'd lost in a fight with Mike Tyson. Then boyfriend (now husband of over 20 years) took me out to dinner, but only after hunting down the dingiest restaurant he could find because he thought everyone would think he'd been beating me up!

    Feb 14th is my birthday, but as husband is in Sydney, I shall be spending the evening without him... at my eldest's consultation evening! So romantic! I doubt the teachers are greatly impressed either!

    I don't have a lot to say because mrwITch doesnt buy me anything for Valentines day except a card..
    EVERY year I buy him a chocolate heart or similar, and EVERY year I watch him eat it..
    It has seemingly never occured to him to buy me something...
    *sigh*
