Celebrate Valentine's Day with Home Bargains

I make no secret of my affection for Home Bargains, we have a branch near our home which I frequent regularly and I've found some terrific items in there over the years. From gardening, through health and beauty, to toys and food, there's always something to catch the eye and spend your pennies on! When Home Bargains got in touch to offer me the opportunity to review some of their Valentine's Day gifts I was really pleased to accept.

Celebrate Valentine's Day with Home Bargains

Home Bargains always have a great range to support holidays throughout the year and Valentine's Day is no exception. My local store currently has a large display with everything you could need to celebrate with your loved one. I was sent a selection of the range and received a teddy bear, chocolate rose, a net of foil covered heart-shaped chocolates, two crackers and a mini heart frying pan. They are all inexpensive items, with the most expensive item - the bear costing just £1:99 - clearly showing that you can celebrate on a budget!

Home Bargains Valentine's Teddy Bear and heart shaped frying pan

The first two items we looked at were the teddy bear and the heart shaped frying pan. The teddy bear is a lovely little chap with his red gingham ribbon and red gingham heart. He's beautifully soft and snuggly and is the perfect size to tuck into a gift bag. Little Miss is very taken with our new little bear and has stashed him in her toy pram, a position of high favour! He is lovely quality and a really sweet little gift, an absolute bargain at £1:99!

I've seen heart shaped frying pans on many online retailers and some of them cost a lot of money! The Home Bargains version is just £1:49 and comes packaged in red cardboard. I'm not sure it's actually something you would buy as a gift, you'd probably buy it and cook eggs, or pancakes in it as a surprise for your loved one. The pan is non stick and also has a heart embossed in the base of it which will add a little extra detail. I think that it is a really sweet way of making aValentine's Day breakfast very special. 

Home Bargains Valentine's Day Heart Shaped and Rose Chocolates

Our next two items were both sweet treats - a chocolate rose (79p) and a net of red foil covered chocolate hearts. Both of them show the Home Bargains Valentine's range packaging beautifully with their cute little messages. The rose is a hollow chocolate and, at first glance, you might take it as a fabric rose. It's presented in a plastic tube, just like a single red rose should be and you simply detach the rose's head and unwrap the foil to get to the chocolate. The net of chocolate hearts reminds me of the gold coins you get at Christmas, its a fun Valentine's take on that idea. The hearts are about the size of a ten pence coin and there are around twenty in each bag. You could share them with your loved one, or even use them to decorate a cake or a dessert, or just keep them all for yourself! 

Home Bargains Valentine's Day Kiss and Tell Crackers

The last item is really fun, two cardboard 'Kiss and Tell' crackers which contain a red paper hat, IOU coupon and some red foil hearts. If you were clever you could gently remove the coupon and fill it out before you give it to your loved one to pull the cracker. These are just 79p, and will add a touch of fun to your Valentine's Day.

I'm very impressed with the budget range of Valentine's gifts. I think that the teddy bear and chocolates would be great gifts for teenagers to buy for that special someone, just a sweet little way to say they are thinking of them. You could purchase any of these gifts and add them on to your Valentine's gift, or just pop a couple of them in a cute gift bag, perfect if you don't usually buy gifts or don't have much to spend. I've already spotted that there is a wider range in store, along side a selection of cards too. Home Bargains is definitely worth checking out this Valentine's Day!

We were sent these items in exchange for an honest review.
