Plastic roses, marshmallows with Pat Kenny’s face printed onto them, and being dumped have been revealed as some of the worst gifts people have received on Valentine’s Day.
According to a survey carried out by Aldi, some of the below-par gifts that people have received on the most romantic day of the year include a saucepan, marshmallows with the radio host’s face on them, a giant teddy, being dumped and, of course, nothing whatsoever.
For all of you men out there wondering what to get your wife, girlfriend or mistress this year – jewellery, perfume, weekends away and a proposal were listed as some of the more popular choices.
25% of the survey’s respondents said that they were planning on spending less than €20 on a Valentine’s Day gift this year, with 27% saying that they would be spending between €20 and €40 for their other half and 14% of people plan on spending over €80 on a gift.
Meanwhile, 72% of people said that getting a Valentine’s Day card from their other half on Valentine’s Day is more important than them spending their money on an expensive gift.
