When it comes to declarations of love , there are several routes you could go down.
There are big, fancy gestures. Think flash mobs, an airplane spelling out “I LOVE YOU” with its contrail or a pack of 1000 Labrador puppies each bearing a single, red rose.
These obviously require a lot of money and a project management qualification. Luckily there are Hallmark cards, garage flowers and access to every love poem ever written, thanks to the internet.
But, sometimes you might want to think outside the box – and without breaking the bank. How can you declare your love in a resounding fashion without having to take out a bank loan?
Well, you could root around your house for old electronic devices, like this thoroughly modern romantic.
Roses wilt, a Nokia 3310 is for life

After all, as the author points out, roses – as do all flowers – wilt and die eventually. Even in today’s ‘swipe left’ disposable society, is this the sort of legacy you want for your own love?
If not, then you could do worse than compare your strength of feeling to a Nokia 3310.
If you’re of a certain age, you’ll remember how amazing this model of phone was.
Yes, you could only ever have ten messages in your inbox at a time but the battery lasted forever, it was virtually indestructible and it had SNAKE.
Simple, sturdy and reliable – exactly how love should be.
