In some parts of Italy, basil was commonly given as a "token of love".

I second the cheap idea, works for me.

ugh... that's a smelly token of love... I prefer roses, methinks.

Basil is one of the most intriguing and intoxicating scents on the plant. I would love to get some Italian basil here in Mexico. Too scared to smuggle in the seeds.

I like warming up a tin of plum tomatoes and eating them on toast with basil leaves sprinkled on top. Basil and tined toms are the greatest flavour match ever.
