Michelle Obama made Barack’s Valentine’s present this year

And it’s perfect.

Whether you’re married or in a casual relationship, Valentine’s gift shopping is an absolute minefield.

Should you go down the sentimental gift route, or prioritise the price tag? Is it better to take a risk or opt for something fail safe? And what on earth do you get the person who has everything?

No one knows this better than former First Lady Michelle Obama, who has to present hunt for Barack Obama every year. And we’re assuming that unless she managed to get him a resignation letter from Donald Trump, Barack probably already has everything he needs.

That’s why Michelle went down the sentimental route this year, making her husband of 25 years a playlist entitled ‘Forever Mine’ featuring 44 songs – perhaps a reference to his former position as 44th President of the United States.

‘Happy #ValentinesDay to my one and only, Barack Obama,’ Michelle posted to social media. ‘To celebrate the occasion, I’m dedicating a little Valentine’s Day playlist to you!’
