Why showing your love is not just for Valentine's Day, but for every day of the year

In case it had skipped you by somehow, I feel it's my public duty to point out that tomorrow is Valentine's Day. I know some of you will have been planning your romantic surprises for weeks and have your heartfelt, personalised cards and pressies tucked away in a secret corner of your house, ready to pull out for the big reveal tomorrow.

But, for those of you who've been preoccupied with work, worry or the dreaded, never-ending demands of home schooling, this is your last minute warning to scoot down to the garage to grab a card and a big bar of chocolate for the love of your life. Why not chuck in a car air freshener or a spare bottle of ready mixed screen wash if you really want to push the boat out?

They may not seem like the most romantic presents but actually, if you think about it, those gifts from the garage are much more thoughtful in the long run. If your car is anything like mine and regularly infested with small people who, despite being told not to eat in the car or drop their litter, seem to behave like chimps at a particularly raucous tea party, a car air freshener is a lovely gift.
