What’s The Point?
So with Valentine’s Day not far away some of you may be approaching this random celebration with sceptisim, at Crimson Tiger we see it as a gentle nudge to remind us to let those we love know how much we appreciate them and we are not alone. A survey in 2016 by Chillisauce showed that 51% of women and 29% of men they questioned believed it was a day to show how much you care. 25% of men, 8% of women felt the point was to get laid and a whopping 59% of men don’t beleive in it so we are going to ignore them!
So how do you go about showing someone you care? By spending vast sums of money on them? Big gestures? Filling their house with flowers? To be honest, most people just want a sign that you are willing to spend a little time and thought on them.

Christmas Has Left Me Broke!
Okay, okay, we’ve been there so here are our very random ideas to try and inspire you if you have no money in the wallet but still want to show some affection.
- Bake some biscuits and ice them with messages like you find on love heart sweets just don’t let your partner serve them when unexpected friends drop in like mine did. Watching his friend eat a biscuit with a very explicit message on was mortifying.
- Make them breakfast in bed, do the chores they hate for the day
- Rub their smellie feet
- Photocopy you favourite photographs of each other, cut out a large heart on a piece of paper and create a photo montage with the photocopies on to the heart, cutting them to fit. Mount the heart on a painted canvas or on coloured card and frame
- Get a large piece of card, and write your dating story using chocolate bars and sweets. Yes, I really did this one year for he who buys grapefruit knives as an anniversary gift. It went down a treat
