It is almost Valentines Day, and whether you love it or hate it, it is always nice to do something special with your other half, family member or friend! Celebrate in your own very special way with our range of affordable Valentines Day gifts and ideas of how to spend the day. 
Make Chocolate Covered Strawberries!
Chocolate Covered Strawberries
I know it may sound clique, but making chocolate covered strawberries with a loved one is truly one of the best things you can do, especially on Valentines Day! This super affordable and incredibly delicious activity only takes you going to your local shops and purchasing two ingredients. As long as you have a hob or a microwave, you're good to go! Simply choose your favourite chocolate, from milk, white or dark, and melt it to the perfect glossy consistency. Wash a punnet of strawberries and dunk them into the melted chocolate to create a hard shall over the juicy strawberries. Place them on a baking tray ( I have found that baking paper helps to get them off easier ) and place in the fridge until they have set. Once they are done you and your loved one can enjoy the crunch of biting into a mouth watering strawberry, covered in decedent chocolate. Now that is enough to get you excited for Valentines Day!
