Valentine’s Day is here and most of you are expecting your Valentines to shower you with gifts. And who doesn’t like chocolates on the day of love, after all chocolate is to V Day what Shah Rukh Khan is to romance.


Yash Das Sharma, 17, knows very well that chocolate has a batting average of about 1,000 when it comes to V Day presents.
But to avoid the throngs of couples out on the town sharing chocolate cakes, the class 11 student from Apeejay School plans to stock up on Cadbury’s Silk and give one to his Valentine every hour of the day!

And if you too don’t want to wait until nighttime to celebrate, then shell out between R175- 350, and surprise your Valentine with a cute chocolate hamper from chocolate boutique, Krazy for Chocolates. Or try heart-shaped ‘love donuts’ from D-Oh! Boy donut chain at R45 a piece to rub off some sweetness into your day.

For Sohini Roy of St Xavier’s College, flowers will always be on top of her Valentine’s Day wish list.“Flowers are a great way of making someone feel special and am expecting my favorite yellow roses from friends,” the commerce student said.

While it’s not necessary that romance cost a fortune, a little splurging on the special day is a given.
