A second competition for you today, and unfortunately I’ve been remiss and it won’t end on time for you to win your prize in time for Valentines day – but I’ll still tell you about it, so you can still buy before the 8th – the final day for shipping – to receive your Valentine’s goodies from YourSurprise.com.
My husband has a rather sweet tooth, so I decided to order him a box of chocolates, but rather than buying something regular, I thought a personalised chocolate gift would go down a treat.
I chose the Chocolate Bonbons from your surprise, and we received a box with 15 heart shaped chocolates and a personalised greeting card.
Now, this is more expensive than your average box of Cadbury’s at Sainsbury’s – in fact the15 treats in this box will cost you £21 including delivery, but they do make a very unique gift.
Getting it personalised is very easy too – you upload your image, add your message and place your order… simple as.
I’ve written about Your Surprise’s chocolate before, so I’ll quote myself here:
“The top layer is always white chocolate, and you can choose plain white, milk or dark for the rest of the chocolate. I’m not a lover of white chocolate, so I was a bit concerned that it was going to ruin the yum for me, but it absolutely did not. It’s so hard in a sponsored blog post to convey sincerity, because you could just think I love the chocolate because I have to. And it’s true, I could. But behind closed doors, there are no secrets, and here’s the embarrassing truth: My husband and I shared the chocolate card while Ameli was sleeping so we didn’t have to share.”
Just one word of warning: when you upload a picture, make sure it’s a dark image. We used this one, and unfortunately Ameli isn’t very clear on the printed chocolates due to the white background. But then, it’s still a great gift.
By the way, PlayPennies have an exclusive discount code for 10% off any Valentines goodies from YourSurprise until the 14th of February.
So, it’s going to be too late for Valentines day, but then, is it ever too late for chocolate? To win a box of these chocolates, leave a comment below saying what picture you’d use to decorate them and why?
