Ideas for Valentine's Day

IF you are stumped for ideas on how to spoil your sweetheart on St Valentine’s Day tomorrow, take note.

You could take a drive to the Ulmarra newsagency this afternoon and pick up some handmade, Belgian chocolates with a huge variety of fillings.

There is everything from caramelised macadamia nuts to cointreau-filled balls. With the intention of appealing to your Valentine, there are peppermint and raspberry-filled hearts.

The newsagency also has a collection of Nicholson Fine Foods kits which include the decadent dark chocolate and white chocolate mousse, which is sure to impress even the fussiest of tastebuds.

If breakfast in bed is more your signature move, The Ulmarra Newsagency has Blue Berrylicious pancake mix and a whole host of jams and preserves to put on top.

Or you could take a trip out to Benefields Rose Farm at Halfway Creek and walk hand in hand through the perfumed fields.
