Still scratching your head over what to get your Valentine this weekend? Let me give you a hint: buy food. Everyone likes food. Giant teddy bears, while cute in the moment, present serious storage issues after Valentine's Day is over. I mean, where is your sweetie going to keep it, really? In the living room? It'll be like having a Christmas tree up in April. Just do the sane thing and buy food.
Luckily for you (and your boo), Caviar & Bananas in downtown Charleston has put together five affordable gift baskets that will set your Valentine's heart a-flutter and keep his or her tummy happy:
The Heart Melter, $69
Certain to melt any girl’s heart, this package features a bottle of L. Aubry Fils Premier Cru Champagne and Christophe Artisan Chocolate Truffles. Customers can substitute L. Aubry Champagne for Chandon Blanc de Noir Brut for package price of $49.
Boys Love Bourbon, $39
The best way to a man’s heart is bourbon of course! This delicious pair features Pappy Van Winkle handmade bourbon balls made with Old Rip Van Winkle 10 year and handcrafted chocolate along with Bittermilk’s Bourbon Barrel Aged Old Fashioned Cocktail Mixer.
Puppy Love, $23
Love at first bite, this collection is comprised of six of Caviar & Bananas’ delicious, house-made “giant” cookies, including dark chocolate chip and frosted heart-shaped sugar cookies.
