It’s February already, which means the Valentine’s Day, holiday of love and all things pink but not only.

Here’s a great list of gift ideas bound to excite your sweetheart whether they are a sweet tooth or not. Starting from the classics – a variety of chocolate shaped hearts with a range of fillings by Farhi.

Farhi chocolate ganache

They’re available from large boxes for £55 for 475 grams to 365 grams for £35. For something smaller or to top up that large main gift Farhi also offers vegan heart shaped jellies presented in an environmentally friendly biodegradable gift bag tied with ribbon.

A luxury gift brand Farhi has tempting milk and white chocolate hearts filled with fruit ganaches including tangy grapefruit, sweet pear, pink rhubarb and zesty lime presented in a red gift box to match the occasion.

And for the chocolate and nut lovers combined there are rich hazelnut praline milk chocolate hearts for £8 for 300 grams. The chocolates come foil wrapped in a variety of colours packed in a biodegradable gift bag by Natureflex and of course the red ribbon.

sugar coated pink almonds

For those preferring nuts in a more pure form there’s also white and pink sugared almonds in a 220 gram gift tin at £12.50. The tin can be reused for storing something like tea for example.

Speaking of tea, chocolates and tea make a great pair. Bird and Blend Tea a sustainable tea company that pushes tea flavour boundaries has created Valentine’s special teas.

There’s a charming Love Potion, from £6.70. A magical blend of chocolate, rose & strawberry loose tea with added candy love hearts, the perfect cup of Valentine’s Tea.

And Red Velvet, classic Red Velvet Cake notes are recreated in a cup with Sri Lankan black tea, cocoa shells, sweet beetroot slices & Pomegranate flowers.

Sri Lankan black tea makes it quite strong with floral notes and subtle earthy sweet hints of beetroot, which also adds red colour to the brewed tea itself. It’s perfect for those looking for new black tea flavours.  

The Bird and Blend tea blends are available to purchase online, in Bird and Blend Tea stores including London, Glasgow, Brighton and Bristol. Or sipped in one of their cafeterias or should I say ‘tea’terias? Or even as a takeaway, perhaps you planned a great day out to explore the city by foot for Valentines.
