Spread The Love
We’re all in need of a bit of love this Valentine's Day! Take it as an opportunity to spread the love. Use the occasion to let family, friends and those in need know that you are thinking of them.
Send a thoughtful message on a chocolate heart from Chococo. These chocolate hearts weigh a generous 200g and your choice of message (up to 25 characters) is piped in white chocolate. Suggestions include 'Wish You Were Here!' and 'Thinking of You'. Chococo's online chocolate shop has many other fun chocolate gifts. These include Love Lobsters in gold chocolate, boxes of salted caramel hearts, and a Valentine giftbag that allows you to mix and match the contents to suit.
Unable to go out for dinner a deux? What about bringing the meal to you? Homemade afternoon teas cane be pre-ordered from St James Tavern in Winchester for Valentine Weekend. Or cook-up an entire Valentine Day Menu from a local restaurant or gastropub such as The Chesil Rectory or The Purefoy Arms.
Alternatively, celebrate your love with a bottle of Hampshire pink fizz! Raimes vineyard has paired up with Chocolate Craft (provider of bespoke chocolates and chocolate-making workshops) to offer a Valentine special of Vintage Rose, Blanc de Noirs and handmade truffles. Meanwhile, Hattingley Valley have given their award-winning 2017 Sparkling Rosé the Valentine’s Day treatment with a limited edition heart-shaped label and a gold heart card (they’ll write the message for you if you’re not with your loved one).
