There’s a tendency to take Valentine’s Day a little too seriously. Sure, chocolates and roses are always nice to receive, but we say why not add a touch of fun to your February 14 with these novelty treats for your special someone. You’ll thank us later!
1. Fancy Pink Champagne *Limited Edition*
Novelty in the sense that this gorgeously girly bottle of Perrier-Jouët Blason Rosé Champagne is limited edition, and what girl doesn’t love bubbly – especially when it’s pink! Win her over this Valentine’s Day with this sophisticated cuvée which comes complete with a lavishly illustrated floral gift box. Marrying the floral freshness of Chardonnay with the fruitiness of Pinot Noir to create intense aromas of pomegranate, blood orange and red fruit, this pretty bubbly is the perfect match for a romantic dinner at home or a fancy way to kick start a fun night together on the town. Give her this beauty and she’ll know you’re a keeper!
Available at Watson’s Wine until stocks last, $458

With more than a dozen gorgeous designs on offer, including this fabulous Be Mine Bouquet!, you’re sure to find the winning combination of chocolate-dipped strawberries, grapes, pineapple hearts, and Belgian chocolate lollipops to make your sweet-toothed lover go weak at the knees.
