Yesterday we talked about staying in shape, which is very important. But a little indulgence can be good for you too! Especially this time of year, with Valentine’s Day looming around the corner. Which reminds us…when is the last time you got your loved one something extra special for Valentine’s Day? I usually opt for the heart shaped box of chocolate conveniently located near the toiletries at the Duane Reade. Luckily, this year we have gotten some sage wisdom — ahead of time — from our friend Rachel, whose awesome store Chocolate Works UES is tearing up the sweet scene uptown. In a good way.
Here’s Rachel’s take on some yummy, simple treats for your sweets:
We all know chocolate is a favorite Valentine’s Day gift but it can seem a little “tired” just to give (or get) the same old box of chocolates year after year. But with just a little touch of creativity, you can take your chocolate gift to the next level.
For your sweetheart:
4oz photo chocolate
For your kids’ class at school:
For your kids’ teachers or tutors:
For your mother:
5 long-stemmed strawberries in a macaron box
For your work colleagues:
Chocolate heart box with assorted chocolate-covered pretzels and Oreos
These are all great ideas. Thanks, Rachel! We also love the shot of you in HEUCY’s #HighSchoolReunion. Red is indeed a happy color. Have a great weekend, friends.
