PLANTS ARE THE WAY FORWARD FOR LOVERS THIS VALENTINES

Press Release: February 03, 2010

A plant to keep forever, a romantic meal and jewellery are the top three Valentines gifts to win over your loved one this February 14th.

According to a recent survey by Festival Place shopping centre in Basingstoke, those three gifts along with red roses and chocolate will make hearts skip a beat. However, receiving nothing is just not acceptable, there is no excuse for not getting a card for your loved one this year.

This year Festival Place is offering lovers an alternative way to profess their everlasting love. The rare Hoya plant, commonly known as the sweetheart plant, will be on sale in Porchester Square on Saturday 6th and Sunday the 7th February for £3.99 with a percentage of the sale being donated to the British Heart Foundation. Lovers, when purchasing, will also be asked to leave a love note that will be posted on the Festival Place website.

Steve Connolly, centre director at Festival Place said: We wanted to be able to offer our romantically inclined customer the opportunity to buy their lover something special this year so opted for the unique plant. We are expecting shoppers to see this as the added extra that will earn them brownie points with their partner until next February.

The restaurant offering at Festival Place is also gearing up for a busy Valentines weekend as the hearts of the majority of shoppers surveyed lies in their stomachs. More than 70% confirmed that the romance is well and truly alive and will be looking forward to a romantic meal for two at the shopping centre.

For those who arent sure what to buy their partner David Domoney will be at the shopping centre on the 13th and 14th, showcasing everything Festival Place has to offer from perfume and jewellery, to chocolates and lingerie.
