Godiva ‘Collection Précieuse’ 

Godiva, the five start chocolatiers, have created an eye-catching and delicious new collection of luxury chocolate for Valentine’s Day 2018.

Each of the jewel-shaped chocolate casings are filled with an exclusive recipe from the Godiva chefs, with innovative flavour combinations. Our particular favourites were the Zesty lemon ginger ganache combined with a creamy hazelnut praliné, decorated with a precious emerald. The balance of the lemon and ginger working perfectly. We also loved the pistachio gem, which oozes sumptuous pistachio flavour!

Maison Bruno Paillard Premiere Cuvee Rose

What better way to begin a romantic evening than with an elegant glass of pink bubbles? This Premiere Cuvee Rosé, named on account of its composition of only the first pressing, is an emphatic example of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay coming together in a perfect marriage. Aesthetically, this offering from Maison Bruno Paillard, is salmon pink in colour. There are notes of cranberry and raspberry. For us, this rosé matches well with lighter meats or it is simply fantastic to enjoy by itself.

A top end Champagne House, which makes a delicious Premiere Cuvee Rose (Multi Vintage).  It is available by the glass at a selection of London restaurants, such as Blandford Comptoir, Café Comptoir & SushiSamba (as part of a Valentine’s menu), as well as in Selfridges and Spirited Wines.

Ideal for Valentine’s Day, we particularly like this graceful and classic style oval cut, red pendant crystal with chain. A great piece, for under £100 this is a great value, yet luxurious gift for your loved one. There are also matching earrings available too.  Get yours here.
