can't quite afford an impressive bunch of flowers from some posho florists?
never fear ...
buy three much cheaper bunches of flowers from a leading supermarket
release them from their nasty plastic packaging
de-leaf them a bit
arrange them in a nice fashion
pick up a free newspaper and use a page to wrap them up
fasten with a nice bit of gold ribbon hanging from your bookshelf
hey presto, Bob is actually your uncle:
a lovely gift (if I do say so myself)
total cost: six of your gold coins
