Sometimes it's easy to forget to tell your nearest and dearest just how much they mean to you; we're all so caught up in the busy-ness of life. Valentine's Day works to give us all a gentle nudge to focus on who is important in our lives. Here at Viva we like the unexpected when it comes to gift-giving - it shows thought and originality - so we've collated some ideas to inspire you. And make sure you read our interview with model and writer Paloma Elsesser, who is championing the message of self-love as the star of Lonely's latest campaign.
Plus, this week Jesse Mulligan reviews new Italian eatery Spacca in Remuera, which would make a perfect date destination, and we're also sampling as many different flavours as we can at the brand new Moustache Milk & Cookie Bus.
