Not so lame gift ideas for Valentine’s Day

Most people still seem to love all the fuss about Valentine’s Day: heart-shaped boxes of chocolate, flowers and teddy bears delivered to your work, followed by a romantic dinner in an Italian restaurant seated very cosily next to other couples in flickering candlelight.. But there are still a few of us who couldn’t think of anything worse, although you always kind of feel slightly compelled to do something. In Finland, instead of being all lovey-dovey, we have named the day Friend’s Day (Ystävänpäivä), and instead of romantic dinners, we go out to share a drink or two with a group of friends.

Here’s some boozy gift ideas from a friend to another with a hint of love.
