    It's Valentine's Day soon, so some people are probably rushing around buying expensive chocolates and roses to woo their loved ones. :love:

    However, would you pay £17 for a single strawberry in a box as a gift for your loved one?

    A supermarket in Hong Kong is selling the ‘Kotoka strawberry gift box’: an single, wrapped strawberry on a bed of synthetic straw and styrofoam, the single fruit is imported ‘fresh by air’ from Japan, and is said to be hand-picked.

    This is hilarious. :rofl: And possibly the weirdest Valentine's Day gift ever.

    Has anyone here got any better ideas for Valentine's Day gifts?

        That is only a good idea and for that sum of money you may buy a kilo of strawberries, put them in a nice box and wrap with the silk ribbon.

        I think it would be weirder if it were a single sachet of strawberry lube, but everything else the same.

        I think buying like a few strawberries and melting some chocolate to dip them into is cute and I would be fine with that.
        I love strawberries, personally (especially if they are nice and sweet) :love::mmm:
        Tbh, Valentine's shouldn't just be about the gifts.
