Woman Expects Boyfriend To Spend £2,500 On Her For Valentine's Day

Woman Expects Boyfriend To Spend £2,500 On Her For Valentine's Day

While many people enjoy the novelty of Valentine's Day, I can almost guarantee none of you are as into it as 22-year-old Chantal Blakey, who makes sure her other half well and truly spoils her as 14 February rolls around.

Chantal, from Blackpool, is such a fan of the annual holiday that she draws up a list totalling £2,500 for her fiancé Joe Kyles, and expects celebrations to last a week.

In fact, she even admitted she's actually dumped boyfriends in the past for not quite cutting the mustard on Valentine's Day.

Saying she's always found the idea of Valentine's Day 'magical' and she loves 'traditional romance', mortgage advisor Chantal told The Sun: "When I was 13 I was dating a boy called Jack*. I was so excited for my first Valentine's Day, so when he gave me some fake flowers I was devastated.

"Aged 17, my boyfriend Tom* told me he was taking me out for dinner, then pulled up at a KFC.

"I couldn't understand why he thought KFC was romantic.

"He said he'd got a voucher for a free meal. I ended it over chicken wings.

"Then I dated Brad*. He made an effort to take me out for a lovely meal and gave me flowers.

"But the next day I looked at the chocolates he'd given me and they were out of date. He'd bought them from the reduced rack.

"I had no choice but to end it."

Chantal, who has featured on Channel 5's Undercover Girlfriends with Joe, explained she gets as excited by the lead-up to 14 February as others tend to feel about Christmas.

As for what's on the agenda this year, Chantal's wish list features diamond jewellery, lingerie, designer shoes, a home-cooked three-course meal and a weekend away at a five-star hotel - and that's just to name a few.

"I start listening to my favourite love songs, watch my favourite rom-coms and start decorating the house with balloons, red hearts and pink love signs," she said.

"In my eyes, nothing is more important than celebrating love."

Chantal's fiancé Joe, who she met in 2015, used to tease her about her obsession with Valentine's Day, but now lavishes her with expensive treats as the big day comes.

Personal trainer Joe has been saving up for months, and has even taken on extra shifts to make Chantal's dreams a reality.

Chantal said: "I start making lists for Valentine's Day 11 months beforehand. It's so important that it goes exactly right.

"This year my list tops £2,500 ($3,200). A big trend now is 'flower bombing'. You get multiple bouquets of all different types sent throughout the day so your desk is 'bombed' with flowers.

"My list details the whole day and starts with rose petals on the bed and flowers when I wake up.

"I always want breakfast in bed - last year he made my favourite, pancakes with bacon and syrup.

"I always want a Valentine's card in the morning and it has to have a long message in it.

"If it just says, 'To Chantal, love Joe', then I'd make him rewrite it."

Chantal continued: "On the lead-up to the day I like to be taken out for romantic dinners. But on the day I want a three-course meal prepared by him.

"Last year he followed my gift list to the letter and I opened a £400 pair of Christian Louboutin shoes, sexy lingerie, a £350 dress, £200 earrings, champagne, make-up, designer bath products and perfume.

"He booked a luxury meal and treated me to a five-star hotel spa weekend.

"He even arranged to have a fresh flower wall for us to have pictures taken in front of.

"I know people think I'm over the top but it's important to me."

She added: "I do get him gifts. I've bought him a designer shirt and a watch, but I think the emphasis is on the woman to get spoilt."

*Names have been changed.
