Tomorrow (February 14th) isn't just St Valentine's Day, it's also International Book Giving Day. Give a book to your beloved instead of a bunch of roses!
Though Valentine's Day has never been a particularly big deal in New Zealand, there are quite a few romantics out there. Florists love Valentine's Day, not surprising when the cost of a single red rose can set you back as much as $45. Frankly, I'd rather get an edible bouquet.
A beetroot heart, or a bouquet of peppers! Hot stuff!
Or some bacon roses?
