A free spoon and a competition. 

Valentine's Day is coming up - love it or loathe it, you won't be able to escape the tide of soppy lurve come February 14th


 
We think Valentine's Day is time to get a bit silly, which is why we have come up with 'Come Spoon with Us'. In ode to the traditional Welsh love spoon we'll be handing out wooden spoons in our shops for you to decorate and give to the one you love most.
 
There's a chance to win an amazing prize too. Once you've decorated your spoon, upload a picture of your design to Facebook. The best spoon will win a romantic weekend prize courtesy of Virgin Experience Days. 

Traditionally, love spoons were decoratively carved and presented as a romantic gift. The symbols carved into the spoons had different meanings (click here for some ideas). What symbol will you decorate your spoon with?



Single? Why  not dedicate it to your favourite leading man? Favourites in the office include Gerard Butler, Eddie Redmayne and Cliff Richard. We've met Gerard Butler. Think we mentioned that already though ;-)





Spoons will be available in our shops from Monday 4th February. If you can’t get to a shop to pick up a free spoon then an entry on any type of wooden spoon will be accepted. 
 
Call us bonkers but we think it will be rather nice. What better way to express your love than with a personalised wooden spoon? Who needs flowers anyway?

For Valentine's gift ideas take a look at our gift guide here.
The competition closes on Thursday 14th February.
