Valentine’s Day with romantic treats from Asda

Valentine's Day is my favourite day, I know have gone a little  bit gushing over it in previous years, but I adore the chance to tell Chris what he means to me. I have made up a little treat box for Chris this year. Its our 20th Valentine's Day the first was when he proposed to me in Paris.

This year Asda have kindly helped me out with a few goodies to spoil him with and one or two treats for me.

What's really great is that Asda's Valentine's Day range is affordable and still special. 

I love the cupcakes for two,  they are a lovely moist cupcake, really light and a lovely creamy topping,sprinkled with hearts, they are in Asda for £1 and well worth your money.The waffles are very cute and very tasty, with a little fruit puree a perfect breakfast for two.

I have squirrelled the single chocolate red rose away for Chris, it will be nice for him when he offers me flowers.
The heart shaped bath fizzers will be nice to relax in before we go out for dinner and the rose petals are coming with us for a break Chris and Paige have helped organise for him and I.

We are staying in on Valentine's Day night, Asda have some fab meal deals and wine offers.

In particular Asda's Valentine's Day wine and champagne offers are really good value. These promotions are running alongside their annual meal deal – main course, two side dishes and dessert for two for £10. So a meal for two with bubbly is from £15.
