Bush heart-throb Gavin Rossdale once gave wife Gwen Stefani two sacks of potatoes as a Valentine's Day gift.

The British rocker admits that at the time he considered it to be a very thoughtful present, but things didn't exactly turn out as planned.

He explains, "There was a time I was writing a record in Ireland so I sent (Gwen) two sacks of potatoes - just something from where I was from, like I was thinking of her.

"But I think it kind of backfired because when they arrived they were from Oregon so I was a little unlucky. Bad idea... no one eats carbs these days."

This year (05), Rossdale treated the No Doubt frontwoman to an antique heart necklace, as they spent the day together in New York City.
