Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas: Flowers, Food, Fitspo or Flames

It’s St Valentine’s time of the year, when the little cherub shoots his arrows into the hearts of lovers, by way of encouraging lovers to spend up big to show how much they care. I’m such a romantic, that I couldn’t let this day go without a few ideas to say “I love you”.

Say it with Flowers

The first thing you think of for Valentine’s Day you think of red long stemmed roses, and on the day, these cost a small fortune, so if someone does give you long stemmed roses on Valentine’s Day they have paid a premium, so don’t be too hard on him/her for a lack of imagination.

There are so many beautiful flowers in season at this time of year, let’s have a look to see what you can purchase in place of the red rose.

Beyond Flowers

While saying I love you with flowers is absolutely extravagant and wonderful, there are other ways of showering your loved one with gifts to say you are smitten.

Rose Turkish Delight

With rose flavoured turkish delight, it’s like a bouquet in a delicious sweet. Every mouth watering taste of this exotic dessert is exqisite, and delights not just the nose, and sight but also taste.

I was sent this box to try and trust me, I was never going to make it till Valentine’s Day with this in the house. It was the most delicious, delectable and desirable dessert I have eaten. The rose flavour was initially a sweet, powdery texture, with such a creamy, soft rose and sweet gel that just melted in the mouth. I would have this over chocolate! And that is saying something. The vanilla was just as beautiful. I’d be as happy to have this as I would roses.
