IT’S VALENTINE’S DAY tomorrow.

There’s no escaping it.

Restaurants will be booked-out, florists will be sold-out, and jewellers will be doing a roaring trade all day today as people snatch up last-minute gifts.

But should men expect to receive gifts from their wives and girlfriends today – or should all of the traffic be going in the other direction?

We had a (slightly) heated debate in the office – and there was no clear consensus.
