Valentine’s Day? All You Need is Love Hearts
Ah, Valentine’s Day. Cupid’s arrows are flying, love is in the air, and new limited edition Love Hearts are about to hit the virtual shelves. What more could you possibly want? Inspiration? Here’s a few ideas on how to say it with Swizzels this February 14th.
Five Ways to Use Love Hearts this Valentine’s Day
The office flirtation
We’ve all been there at one time or another. Those cheeky smiles across the office. The shared jokes. The coincidentally timed tea breaks. If you have a soft spot for someone at work, wouldn’t Valentine’s Day just be the perfect time to come clean? And wouldn’t a roll of Love Hearts be just the job for letting them know? If they take the bait, then it’s a great story to tell the grandchildren! If not, well, you’ve only spent £0.30… And you have the luxury of being able to pretend that it was all just a light-hearted Valentine’s joke to avoid any awkwardness or embarrassment.
The first official Valentine’s Day
In the early days of a relationship, Valentine’s Day isn’t something you want to go overboard with. But you can’t just ignore it. A bag of 30 limited edition mini Valentine’s Day Love Hearts is a sweet compromise. It shows that you’ve made the effort. It’s fun. It shows that you care. And it shows that your relationship has potential… But that neither of you is quite ready for a February 14th proposal! (Although, you’ve potentially laid the foundations – imagine going back to your original gift, only personalised, with a hidden ring, on Valentine’s Day a few years down the line!)
Yes, this is the big one. Grand gestures or intimate moments, proposals are always special. But Valentine’s Day proposals do have a bit of an edge when it comes to memorability. And there are so many different things that you can do. But, in our humble opinion, the ring sitting within a bag or a tube of personalised Love Hearts is a great way to do it.
The established relationship
The sad fact is, as relationships progress and bills and kids and everything else take priority, Valentine’s Day often loses its importance for couples. Even still, no matter how much your other half professes to find Valentine’s gifts a waste of money, a little gesture will make them smile. And if you splash out £1.00 on a multi-pack of mini Love Hearts, you can hardly be accused of blowing the budget!
A growing number of people will be struggling with this one. Veganism has increased 7-fold in the last five years. In 2019 there were 600,000 vegans in Great Britain. When King chocolate is called for but decreed off-limits, what sweet treats can you give to your newly vegan girl or guy? Yes, there’s dark chocolate. But really, where’s the fun in that? Especially when you could make up a hamper of Love Hearts treats! Double Dips! Lipsticks! And, of course, the personalised rolls! They’re fun. They’re sweet. And they’re really good to eat! And totally vegan-friendly too.
Starting out, settled, or happily self-coupled (treat yourself, you know you want to!), whichever way you look at it, ‘tis the season for Love Hearts. So go on; share the Swizzels love this Valentine’s Day!
