If you are looking to add a personal touch to a classic romantic gift, then don’t just buy those ready-made, over-priced heart-shaped boxes, which usually have disappointingly few actual chocolates in them. Instead, buy regular packets of your beloved’s favourite truffles and decorate a heart-shaped box especially for her, to be filled to the brim with chocolate heaven.
Nothing says romance and real love like a box carefully decorated with photos or mementoes of your time together, or artfully collaged with tissue paper and lace. Best of all you can fit in far more chocolates than you’ll ever find in a standard branded Valentines heart box, and when it comes to truffles more is always more!
We suggest this Paper Mache Box-Heart 12″ from Darice via Amazon.com $8
To be filled with Lindt LINDOR Raspberry Dark Chocolate Truffles ,9.3 Ounce$5.43
For more than double the chocolate you’d get in a ready-packaged box and several dollars less in price.
Or go wild and get a whole box of Lindt LINDOR Milk Chocolate Truffles, 60 Count Box $19.99
I know that I’d go weak at the knees at the sight of so much chocolate, and even more so receiving a really thoughtful, personal gift and not something grabbed at the last minute from the store.
If you don’t have time to decorate a box, then what about a basket tied with ribbon and a hand-written label and photograph filled with chocolates? It’s the thought that counts and just a little care lavished on a special gift for a special person.
