Giveaway: win a gorgeous Valentine’s bouquet (and more) from Prestige Flowers

prestige-flowers-bannerPeople seem to be really torn about Valentine’s Day.  There are definitely those who see it as a cynical marketing ploy dreamed up by greeting card companies and florists (or is it restauranteurs and wine retailers?), but I personally think it’s no bad thing to remind your loved one how much you care once in a while.

Dozen red roses

With this in mind, I’ve teamed up with the lovely bunch (geddit?) from Prestige Flowers to help you spoil your valentine.  Just comment below and tell me who you’d treat and why, and we’ll arrange for a gorgeous bouquet of red roses, a bottle of wine, a teddy bear and a box of chocolates to be delivered to the object of one lucky winner’s affection in time for Valentine’s day.

And hey, if you’re not lucky enough to win, you’ll find loads of perfect Valentine’s Day flowers at Prestige.

Usual English Mum competition rules apply.  Prize will consist of one dozen roses, one bottle of red wine, Belgian chocolates and a cuddly bear.  Competition closes 11th Feb 2013.

    I’d like to send this to my best friend, who is having a hard time at the moment and is feeling very alone and unwanted after her boyfriend broke up with her. I would like to send this to let her know that even though she may be single, she is loved by all her friends and I just want her to be happy again.

    My fiancee,I’ve kind of messed up last Valentines for her last year, I came home with nothing and she’d made such an effort. Romantic steak dinner and champagne, I’ve never felt so guilty even though she assured me that it was fine. This year I’ve spent most of my budget on a ring to ask her to spend her life with me. I am rubbish with presents and think this would be perfect for her, she certainly deserves it!

    My Mum, who is enduring chemo at the moment. She didn’t even know she had cancer, she was admitted to hospital with a chest infection on 30th August last year. Her consultant kept digging and digging, test after test with nothing concrete. He didn’t give up and after 6 weeks she diagnosed peritoneal cancer. Mum started chemo on my birthday at the end of October and is still having her weekly treatment. The malignant cells have now reduced from 400 to 25 and she has been told that this is technically but not clinically clear, which is great news, but she is still having treatment to try and reduce it further. She still has some hair and for her 79th birthday in January she went to the hairdressers and had what little hair she has styled and her nails manicured. She is coping really well and I would love to surprise her with this wonderful gift.

    I split with my partner Christmas due to me drinking too much. I have since sought help and am no longer drink dependant. She is now giving me a chance to prove my worth to he. I do love her immensely and deeply regret everything I have put her through.
    This gift would go a short way in proving I am a better person. Even though I know I still have many challenges ahead

    When I was little I thought, on Valentine’s day, you gave a card to whoever you loved, so I always gave my mum a valentine’s card. Now, 40-something years later, I don’t buy her cards any more but I’d love to treat her to these goodies. I don’t think anyone’s ever given her red roses in her life. It would make her day.. week, month.. year!!! It would make her (and me) very happy.

    I’d like to nominate my good friends June and Dave. They have been together through thick and thin for 26 years ( even though when they married her mother said ‘I give it 6 months’). They have had a tough time recently and I know they can’t afford to spend money on Valentines day. This would be a wonderful surprise for them both.

    My husband Aaron. He’s in the process of leaving the army after 10 years hard service.
    We met just before his last tour – few days before Valentines day. 4 years ago and got married 3 months ago.
    I’d love something special to thank him for his amazing dedication to me and the army.

  41. kate goodall
    kate goodall says:

    I would like to nominate two of life’s truly lovely people for this. Nina and Gareth – colleagues of mine. Gareth has terminal cancer, but is so far exceeding the expiry date he was given, and continues to live life to the full where possible. When having treatment and constrained in isolation in a London hospital bed, far away from Nina and their two young sons, Gareth just can’t stop working. He’s an old-fashioned parkie at heart but these days manages the improvement of parks. He’ll often be checking documents at daft o’clock when poor Nina wants some love. I know this because it’s taken her forever to work out private messages on Facebook!

    They’re as crazy in love as they ever were and, although knowing life is tenuous, they continue to love and live and refuse to give in. And how can they when number 3 is due very shortly now? Who knew that lots of chemo etc doesn’t necessarily a Jaffa make?

    They’ve been busy raising funds for young people with cancer, they deal with two young kids, and another on the way,they deal with Gareth’s illness, they do their work and yet they still have the sparkliest eyes ever.

    I would give them to my wife. I didn’t get her a very good Christmas present so maybe this might help her forgive me.

    My super husband did not even bat an eyelid , when I suggested I would like to go do some Humanatarian Work in Haiti. He took off work (self employed) and looked after our 3 young boys. With men like this, it makes the World a Better Place. He is selfless and I need to spoil him.

    Trenton says:

    For my boyfriend of 10 years… Still waiting for marriage equality and fed up with most valentines cards having male/female illustrations, or being pink/floral/covered in red love hearts… It’s not all about girls, Men fall in love too!
