Valentines day is just around the corner and for some couples this is the ultimate holiday, for others it goes by un noticed, I would say my husband and I are some where in the middle. We always acknowledge it, buy each other a card and a token gift or two and then usually have a nice meal at home with a movie and a bottle of wine once the kids are in bed. This is of course in part due to the fact getting a babysitter on a celebrated holiday is always tricky but more to do with the fact that I find the restaurants and pubs are too busty and commercalised on these days and I would rather go out on another, quieter, night.
The gifts we get for each other can range from a bunch or roses to a bottle of wine or perhaps some new perfume or aftershave, there is no hard or fast rule and we don’t have a set budget but we certainly don’t go mad. So when I was sent some of the Swizzels valentines gift ideas I thought they were perfect for marking the occasion in a fun way without breaking the bank.
Swizzels sweets are a well known brand that have been producing family favourites since 1928. If you are unsure of the name I bet you will still recognise some of their main sweets such as
