How are you all? So sorry for the lack of posts recently but as you have gathered from my recent tweets….not been too well but I am back now and fighting fit! 🙂
Anyway…back to today…just wanted to say Happy Valentines to you all!
As you know, today is traditionally a day for you to show your love to your loved one by sending cards, flowers, chocolates and other gifts! However, my husband and I believe that you don’t actually need just the one day to show your love as you should be showing love to each other every single day! 🙂
Today’s post, I am going to show you some of the lovely gifts that you can get for your other half but these are also gifts that will last all year round…so you can feel the love everytime you see them – its always a Love Vintage Tea Favourite!
All you need is love especially when you have this beautiful wooden sign from Box Brownie Trading from NotOnTheHighStreet…I am still working on my husband for this for our house… hehe 🙂
You can never have too many hanging hearts around the house including these gorgeous wired love hearts from Live Laugh Love – perfect for hanging in a window, on a door knob or just on a row of hooks…beautiful!
Or these pretty padded lavender hearts also from Live Laugh Love – oh so cute! 🙂
If you are after a little sweet treat – see these gorgeous Aphrodisiac Cupcakes from Genii Cupcakes.
Here is a little bit from their press release:
Hampshire baking temptress, Genii Cupcakes has created a range of exclusive aphrodisiac cupcake to help lovers rise to the occasion this Valentine’s Day.
Genii Cupcakes has created three cupcake flavours for the romantic season:
After Dark Truffle Cupcake – sophisticated dark chocolate cake with baked raspberries, mild honey topped with bittersweet chocolate and honey buttercream. Ancient Aztec emperor Monteczuma drank 50 gold goblets of dark chocolate a day to enhance his sexual power, but you can eat just one rich satisfying chocolate cake with a raspberry and chocolate truffle centre and the hint of honey will help “sweeten” your evening.
Stimulating Fruit Cupcake – fresh strawberry and fragrant basil cake topped with balsamic frosting. Described in erotic literature as fruit nipples, strawberries are packed full of vitamin C combined with the aroma of sweet basil which is said to stimulate sex drive and boost fertility.
Hearts Desire Cupcake – dark chocolate and a hint of red wine topped with cream cheese frosting. Referred to as the ‘nourishment of the gods’ by the Aztecs and rumoured that the famous lover Casanova is said to have consumed chocolate before his conquests, chocolate is the perfect partner with red wine to stimulate the senses, increase stamina and start the dance of love.
“Foods are so much more than fuel and I wanted to create a range of cupcakes to pleasure not only the taste buds, but also contain a little something extra to help couples everywhere celebrate Valentine’s Day.” – said Laura Payne, chief baking temptress at Genii Cupcakes.
Cupcakes are available in boxes of 6 and 12 at £2.50 per cupcake and can be delivered directly to your someone special as a surprise Valentine’s Treat.
