Whether you celebrate Valentine’s Day or not, at this time of year it’s hard to escape it! All the shops are filled with heart-shaped gifts, stuffed toys, balloons, and boxes of chocolates. I personally quite like Valentine’s Day – I enjoy all seasonal events to be honest.. especially ones that involve chocolate! For this blog post I’ve collaborated with Moonpig to share what I’m up to this Valentine’s Day as well as some Valentine’s gift ideas. I was provided with a voucher in order to pick my favourite gifts. Gavin and I don’t go OTT on Valentine’s Day but we…
