Valentine’s Gift Guide 2023

Say I love you with Sponge

Saint Valentine’s Day, is a day to celebrate the ones we love. No-one really knows who Saint Valentine really was, but what we do know is that they were celebrated for love and romance. And we celebrate the day every year on the 14th of February.

A lot of us, if we have a special someone, will celebrate Valentine’s Day. Perhaps we will go and do something as a couple, like going out for a meal, or doing an activity. Sometimes, we just want to have a romantic night in together, not doing anything lavish, but making sure you show your love for your other half.

Cooking a meal together, or surprising your partner with a home cooked meal is always a good choice. If they tend to do the cooking, it will show that you are really trying to push the boat out, and that you appreciate everything they do for you. You may not have time to cook everything you want to, so it’s okay to cheat a little and buy in certain things to keep the stress levels down so that you can enjoy your evening.

If you know what you are doing for the evening, that’s great! But what are you buying your partner as a gift this year? Buying the same thing isn’t ideal, it takes the surprise out of the gesture a bit, and it can make things feel a little less romantic. Flowers and chocolates are all well and good, but sometimes it better to get something that you can share together and enjoy.

We have a great range of gifts available for Valentine’s Day this year, and they are perfect for sending to your loved one when you can’t be with them or for sharing together as a couple. Here’s what’s available for Valentine’s Day 2023:

Chocolate and Strawberry Cake - Inspired by chocolate dipped strawberries our Chocolate and Strawberry cake has a deliciously rich chocolate sponge made using high quality cocoa, giving a big chocolate punch. The buttercream is made using freeze dried strawberries creating the ultimate dreamy strawberry buttercream which fills the middle of the cake and is spread on top, melted chocolate is then drizzled over to give a pretty lattice effect. Chocolate and strawberries are the perfectly matched in this LOVEly cake. Comes with 6 red foil-covered heart chocolates for you to decorate the top with! Also available as a gluten free cake.

Love Pinata Cake - Our romantic Love Pinata Cake has four layers of delicious and rich chocolate sponge which are sandwiched together with a velvety smooth chocolate buttercream.
