Not only is North Wales a beautiful place to visit it is also a treasure trove of beautiful, bespoke and hand-crafted gifts. So if you are stuck on what to buy for your other half for Valentines Day? Don’t panic, Thornley Leisure Parks has produced a top 5 Valentines gift guide:
1. Welsh Lovespoon
A Lovespoon is a wooden spoon decoratively carved that was traditionally presented as a gift of romantic intent. The spoon is normally decorated with symbols of love and was intended to reflect the skill of the carver. Due to the intricate designs, lovespoons are no longer used as functioning spoons and are now decorative craft items.
2. Welsh Chocolate
Who doesn’t like Chocolate…? But have you tried Welsh Chocolate? We highly recommend the following:
Cathryn Cariad Chocolates: Cathryn Cariad Chocolates are luxury, award-winning chocolates handmade on Cathryn’s farm in Snowdonia using the finest quality chocolate and ingredients from local Welsh producers.
Gwynedd Chocolates: Gwynedd Confectioners is the largest independent chocolate manufacturer in Wales and is one of the UK’s leading designers of chocolate products. Situated near the shore of Bala Lake, within the lush surroundings of the Snowdonia National Park, North Wales, Gwynedd Confectioners have been making the finest confectionery products for over 20 years.
