A Gift for your Sweetheart on Valentine's Day

Friday, 8 February 2008

Are you struggling to come up with ideas for the perfect gift for your loved one this Valentines day? Graham Cruz is here with some super suggestions to ensure double brownie points this year!

Gift 1
Adam and Eve Chocolates

The gift of chocolate is always gratefully appreciated by women but now finally men can relish in the sweet sensation too...  Adam & Eve handmade Irish chocolates are specially tailored to the male and female chocoholic.  Encased in a classic black and gold snake-skin box, Adam chocolates will tell a lot about the man in your life.  Eve chocolates are encased in a decadent red, faux crocodile-skin box with chocolate flavours specially chosen for women.  But if that's not enough two lucky ladies and two lucky gentlemen, who find a 'diamond ticket' in their box of chocolates this Valentine's Day, will win a pair of diamond earrings or diamond cufflinks exclusively at Brown Thomas Dublin, Cork, Limerick & Galway.
This Valentine's Day Adam & Eve are running a competition exclusively in Brown Thomas stores where 2 lucky ladies and 2 gentlemen will be getting more than a box of chocolates when they find a silver ticket that entitles them to a pair of diamond earrings/cufflinks. I will courier the chocs to you this afternoon.

Adam & Eve chocolates cost €20 each.
