Give the gift of love (and these presents) on Valentine's Day

It’s a well-known fact that team Now have the fine art of subtle hinting nailed. And when we say subtle, we mean lead balloons, elephants on ice and blinged up phone cases kinda subtle.

With Valentine’s Day tomorrow – expecting lots of snogging selfies from the like of Ferne McCann and boyfriend Charlie Sims et al – there’s no better time to start putting these hinting techniques into practice with a few *gentle* nudges to point our other halves in the right direction.

Well, these boys can’t read minds after all, and they’ve probably left it to the last minute anyway. Typical!

Well never fear, as Now‘s fash desk has come to the recue and cherry picked the best 17 gifts to hint for this Val-Day. Just leave this page open on your browser for full effect. Or just print it out and leave it stuck on the fridge. No excuses now, lads. So long, service station flowers!
