Ok, first of all, when I received this from Hotel Chocolat, I opened the parcel and left it on the kitchen table, actual box unopened as I'd got in quite late. When I came home from work the following day, my boyfriend had actually opened it himself when he'd got in from work in the afternoon and ate a load of the chocolates...typical! Luckily he was wise enough to leave the pralines, but we'll talk about them later.
My first impression was that this looked absolutely gorgeous, I love the butterfly design on the front - I'm actually having a bit of a butterfly "thing" at the moment in our house and keep buying homewares with butterflies on, oops - and I think the mirror/drawers are so cute, you definately could use this as a jewellery box or storage after the chocolates are gone (which incidentally, is quite quickly in our house).
The chocolates that are included in this are (in order of my favourite):
- Dizzy Praline - Milk
- Billionaire Shortbread
- Berry Mousse
- Dizzy Praline - Dark
The Jewellery Box is available in store at Hotel Chocolat or from http://www.hotelchocolat.co.uk/ for £20, and I guarantee it would make a lovely gift if you're buying for someone on the 14th, or even a gorgeous treat if you're buying for yourself.
This box is part of Hotel Chocolat's Valentines range, and just in case you weren't drooling enough, here's some of the Valentines Chocolates range, which has something to suit every budget really:
