Valentine’s Day Gift Guide
Love is in the air! The heart-shaped boxes of chocolate, bright bouquets and squeezable teddy bears are lining shelves. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we’ve created a gift guide to help you show your sweetheart you care. Gifts are better when they come with a story, so these ideas are a bit more meaningful than whatever you can grab while you’re out on your weekly shopping trip.
Box of Chocolates
When it comes to Valentine’s Day gifts, you can’t really go wrong with chocolate. While the drug-store box of chocolates will tick the box, go above and beyond this year with something special.
Allergen-Free Vegan Truffles
No Whey Foods has the perfect box of chocolate truffles for your vegan love. They steer clear of the following allergens: milk, tree nuts, peanuts, soy, wheat, sesame and eggs. No Whey Foods does not use artificial flavors or colors.
