Ah Valentine’s Day. The two words that strike absolute terror into most men’s minds. It’s always the day of. Through the door they come. Cold sweat. Pale as ghosts. Panic stricken. And then the inevitable question “Do you have anything for Valentine’s Day?.

I wish by way of writing this a few days prior to the big day I can help alleviate some of that panic. But I am not going to kid myself. After all I am the guy who goes Christmas shopping on December 24th at 3:30 in the afternoon. So of course normally I’m part of the great unwashed panic stricken last minute masses. But I have a get out jail free card; I help my wife make chocolates for Valentine’s.

So unless you have a golden ticket as well, I can offer a few tips. Yes you have come to the right place. We do have something for Valentine’s Day. In fact we have a whole bunch of things. A box of chocolates is a sure bet. But to make it even sweeter you might want to remember what chocolate is your partner’s favorite. Smoked Sea Salt or Maple Butter? Don’t know? Don’t panic. Do they like milk or dark chocolate. Not sure? Take a deep breath and buy an assorted box.

The only thing left to do now is to go and a bottle of bubble and a dozen roses.
