Where did you first meet your best beloved? Was it wonderful? I bet it was.
Even for those of us that found love whilst somewhat intoxicated - we may be a little sketchy on the details, but it's still special. It doesn't have to be all running through the rain/getting off a plane/drinking fine Champagne for it to mean something.
Take The Boy and I, for instance. The location of our first kiss is nothing to be proud of - in the queue for the skankiest club in town whilst on a very messy work night, OH THE ROMANCE - but it's the little details that matter. Like the fact I remember it was bitterly cold and snowing, and he'd given me his coat to wear.
This is why I'm so soppy about gifts like the We First Met Here postcode puzzle I've just found. I don't even like puzzles, but if someone bought me this I'd be totally smitten.
You just have to enter the postcode of where you met, and they'll make a jigsaw with the location either in aerial photography or ordnance survey landranger mapping. The exact location of your meeting on the map is encased in a special heart-shaped piece of puzzle. How sickeningly lovely.
If you're as soppy as me you can get one from Firebox for £29.99.
If you like your whimsy with a great big portion of WINE then the nice Firebox folks cater for that too: they also do We First Met Here maps as a personalised label on a bottle of wine, Prosecco or Champagne. Okay, so the wine itself is definitely not worth the £29.99 and up price tag, but it would still be a bloody smashing addition to my wine rack.
Are you as daft as me? What would your ideal Valentine's gift be?
