So it’s Valentine’s Day, and you’ve found yourself involved with someone who has an immense dislike for the holiday. Maybe they believe it’s a sham designed to sell cards and overpriced set menus in restaurants, or maybe they dislike the societal expectation that a big romantic gesture has to happen. It is kind of expected that you do something, regardless of their personal feeling towards the day. To make things a little bit easier, we have a few ideas of what you can buy that won’t set them off on a night-long anti-Valentine’s rant.
Fondue Set, £35
The idea of eating food on long forks and dipping it into a shared vat of hot cheese does have some semi-romantic overtones, and it’s one of those things that you are likely to have on offer if you were to go out for dinner on Valentine’s Day. But, why should you have to pay extra just to go out on one specific nigh in February? Avoid all that and buy a home fondue set so that you can do it at home. Sharing is good, sharing is nice, and fondue is bloody delicious.
