The box must be pre-ordered by 10th February, and customers can choose to add a FLOWERBX bouquet to their dinner package for an additional £80.
BEST FOR STEAK & WINE: Pipers Farm
If you like traditional a Valentine’s Day – think steak, red wine and a cheeseboard – then take a look at Pipers Farm. The team has put together a dedicated romantic range to help couples celebrate at home, from show-stopping cote du boeuf to chateaubriand sharing steaks and award-winning heart shaped ‘I Love You’ Baron Bigod cheese. All meat comes from 100% grass-fed Red Ruby cattle native to Devon. We like the look of the cheese feast box, which comes with Swanaford brut rosé, three cheeses, pink peppercorn sourdough crispbread and spiced plum chutney – and the fact that wine and candles can be added too.
