ROMANTIC shoppers can take a leaf out of Cupid’s book and tell the world who their Valentine is by hanging a note on a specially-created Love Tree.

They’re being encouraged to write a Valentine’s message to their loved one on a leaf made of card and then hang it on the branches of the Love Tree, at the intu Braehead shopping and leisure destination.

There will be a Love Tree in the shopping mall and another in Soar at intu Braehead and it could also be a unique way to make a marriage proposal to a loved one with a ‘Will you marry me?’ message written on a leaf.

People can write their messages and see them hung on the Love Tree between noon and 5pm on Saturday and Sunday, February 11 and 12, in the shopping centre’s upper mall between Thornton’s and Pandora and at the entrance to Soar at intu Braehead.

Everyone writing a Valentine message on a leaf also has the chance to win £500 to spend on a holiday of their choice from Barrhead Travel. There will also be free gifts, like meal vouchers and chocolates also being handed out.

Marketing manager for intu Braehead, Christine Macdonald said: “We just love this time of year seeing shoppers in the malls carrying their heart-shaped balloons around and buying Valentine’s Day gifts.
“We thought we’d make this year’s Valentine’s Day that bit more special at intu Braehead by creating a Love Tree giving everyone the chance to say how much they love that special person in their life.
“And who knows, we might even get someone popping the question on one of the leaves on our Love Tree!”
