Saira Khan and Steve Hyde

Former Loose Women star Saira Khan created a very thoughtful homemade gift for her husband Steve Hyde. She shared a peek of several envelopes with red and pink writing and said: "My hubby has been my Valentine for 24 years this year.

"Celebrating moments like this helps create a little bit of magic in our lives, memories to cherish and now, also showing the kids the importance of celebrations and creating magic for yourself. Of course you don’t need to give anything to someone to show you love them - but I’ve enjoyed every moment of choosing a card, buying a small but thoughtful gift and then wrapping it up in my home-made wrapping paper. It’s the thought that counts and shows the other person you care."

She continued: "It’s not about how much you spend, it’s about how much you care and make the effort. To all the lovers - enjoy the LOVE."
