Perfect Valentines Presents | Roses and Doughnuts!

pink roses

As soon as it hits February, we are pretty much slapped in the face with all things Valentine’s! It can be quite depressing if you’re not in a relationship but I don’t mind it either way because my birthday is on Valentine’s Day so14th February has a completely different meaning to me. I’ve never been a fan of  lovey-dovey fluffy teddies and cuddly toys anyway, unless it’s a ridiculously cute bunny rabbit or Boo The Dog.

I do like flowers though – providing they’re not in plant pots – this is very important as I have a phobia of pot plants! I freeze up at the sight up of them! It’s a phobia I’ve had since I was little and I have no idea how it even started. Garden centres are my worst nightmare and eating outside at a BBQ is not my most favourite thing to do! I’m not a fan of those big tree things that are in Nandos, I can’t sit near them or have them in my sight, it makes me very uncomfortable! Most people don’t even notice these things but I really really hate it. Pot plants to me may as well be spiders, I find them both as scary as each other! I know it sounds absolutely stupid, but I think it’s the compost that makes me feel a bit sick. As long as I don’t see that bit, I’m ok! Otherwise I will just run away from it…

This year, a couple of Valentine’s Day gift arrived earlier courtesy of Interflora and Krispy Kreme*! The new doughnuts that has been added to the Krispy Kreme variety are chocolate truffle heart and red velvet cake. Both were very nice but I do still prefer Original Glaze! I was out when the couriers tried to deliver them and they left a note saying “the doughnuts are behind the bin”. Doughnut saboteur! The box of treats weren’t that close to the bin so I toddled back off inside and ate two for lunch! The chocolate truffle heart is very nice, I find the red velvet cake sightly too heavy. They are both yummy, I love Krispy Kreme!

If only every week started with a huge bouquet of roses* and some heart shaped food! I always go for bouquets without lillies in them because the pollen are toxic to cats. Our first cat died from lily poisoning 🙁 It was so sad. Whenever I received any with them in, I have to throw them out. Roses are good though, classic Valentine’s flowers! Interflora prides themselves in customer service and reliability, whenever I have used their services, flowers have always arrived on time and they are so well wrapped, you almost don’t want to cut it all up and put it in a vase. Interflora’s Valentine’s day flowers start from £19.99 (or how about this one for £499.99…wowzers!), some bouquets will come with the vase or a nice box of chocolates! Flowers and chocolate are such cliches, but really it is the PERFECT combo!

    I love their original doughnut but these are cute. Ha I'm single for the first time on Valentine's day for the past 9 years? Luckily it's a my parents anniversary so I don't have to be alone during all of this!

    Ha! I was looking at the options at work as I had to organise flowers for a colleague – but the £500 flowers are insane aren't they? Your flowers are gorgeous and I love that your birthday is the 14th Feb, how cute!! The pot plant phobia is indeed a unique phobia but I am glad that they didn't send you one!

    Your birthday is on Valentines? That's actually pretty cool (: I'm also not really one for fluffy, pretentious romance that they've turned Valentine's into either.

    Those doughnuts look scrumptious!

    There's a red velvet doughnut? Awesome 🙂 And I had no idea lillies were toxic to cats. They're my fav flower and I'm getting cats this year so thats good to know! 🙂 x
