Most people still seem to love all the fuss about Valentine’s Day: heart-shaped boxes of chocolate, flowers and teddy bears delivered to your work, followed by a romantic dinner in an Italian restaurant seated very cosily next to other couples in flickering candlelight…
But there are still a few of us who couldn’t think of anything worse, although you always kind of feel slightly compelled to do something. In Finland, instead of being all lovey-dovey, we have named the day Friend’s Day (Ystävänpäivä), and instead of romantic dinners, we go out to share a drink or two with a group of friends.
Here’s some boozy gift ideas from a friend to another with a hint of love.
2 360 Double Chocolate Vodka – Anyone else thinking of shots? They also do buttered popcorn and glazed doughnut flavours! And with a cherry on the top, they are eco-friendly!
3 Gin & Elderflower lollipops from Holly’s Lollies – Boozy sweets are totally in right now. You can choose heart shaped boozy lollies, should you feel more romantic!
4 Two Birds Spirits – remember your burd with some real spirits. Two Birds Spirits offer anything from gins to flavoured vodka to absinthe.
5 Unicorn Tears Gin Liqueur – Perfect for the glittery babes who seek the rainbows. Not sure why it is called liqueur as it is 40% ABV…
6 Gin and Tonic Chocolate Truffles – What did I say about boozy sweets…
8 Lanique Rose Petal Vodka – Forget about roses, show your love like the Polish.
