Love is in the air, the food and at home, especially if the past couple of years has taught us anything, it’s to make sure that we treasure those close to us, as tomorrow is uncertain. We need to make sure that we love with all our hearts and give everything we can to the ones we love.

As we are now doing things and working differently, you need to think of some of the different ways to celebrate these special occasions and Valentine is one of mine.

A lot of people don’t really do much for valentines, maybe a card, maybe a gift, a lot of people don’t do either, well I’m hoping that by showing you some amazing gift ideas, you will change your made and spoil your partners.

I’m going to show you some wonderful gifts that you can get your other half and enjoy Valentine’s this year, here are some options to spoil the foodie in your life.

These candles are vegan, so they are made with soy wax and amazing aroma oils. They have gift sets and lots more to offer on there website, so go and check it out.

I’ve tried a few of the candles and it smells like something is always baking and makes me smile. This also works well for my partner who LOVES to bake too.

For me, when I think of Valentine’s Day, not only do I think about my other half, but I start to think about the spring and summer. I like to think about the better weather, I think about having a BBQ in the garden with family and friends. Having delicious BBQ food.

Now instead of a present that can be consumed, why not get a present that will keep on giving, That is where the Hot Smoked gift comes in.
