Stop that.

Dancing with the Stars sweethearts Jake Carter and Karen Byrne reminding you to buy a bouquet from Aldi and revealing research that shows 60% of men purchase flowers after 5.30pm on Valentine’s Day.

The absolute rotters.

With a dozen roses available from €3.79 to the Premium Naomi Roses Showstopper Bouquet at €49.99 everyone is catered for at Aldi, even the cheap bum.

    What is wrong with buying flowers after 5:30 pm? Likely this is on the way home from work, so the flowers are fresh and not wilted after languishing in an office all day. Our local florist told me they have a surprising number of orders, most of them with late collection for exactly this reason.

      Exactly. Unfortunately expectations have grown to such as scale that a bunch of €2 stargazing lilies from Aldi isn’t enough – we’re talking city breaks, Moet and Michelin star restaurants. Commercial racket and you’ve all been had.

    The Carters always remind me of the old anecdote about Mike and Bernie Winters…

    “An oft-quoted story told of Bernie following his brother on stage at the notorious Glasgow Empire, to be greeted by a voice from the stalls: “Good God, there’s two of them!”

    I don’t think Himself has ever bought me a valentines present. A card (which he usually forgets to write) yes, but not a present. It’s an annual tradition I look forward to every year :)

    ‘er indoors and myself usually exchange a modest pressie; book, bottle of wine etc:

    I’ve (almost) managed to eradicate schmaltzy, tacky cards; written and mass-produced in another time-zone by some prole who knows nothing of the very special bond that exists between myself and my long-suffering missus. I’ve even been known to pen a verse myself; peppered with specific and personal references – some not fit for repeating in a chaste organ such as Broadsheet.

    So much for Brisdsheet’s campaign to promote small Irish businesses, at no charge. Thanks for nothing.
