Hints for Making Valentine’s Day Even Sweeter
Skip Going Out for Dinner and Cook at Home
It’s always fun to take your special Valentine out to a nice dinner, but it can become a real nightmare when the restaurant is jam-packed and you have to wait for more than an hour to be seated. Plus, a noisy restaurant isn’t very romantic when it comes down to it. Why not skip eating out and instead, make your loved one a romantic dinner?
You can keep it simple with a one-course meal or go all out with a five-course feast. Need some recipe ideas? Visit our recipes page to find both sweet and savory recipes that feature one key ingredient: maple syrup. From Irish Apple Maple Pork Chops with Maple Candied Sweet Potatoes on the side to Steak Tip Salad with Maple-Mustard Salad Dressing followed by Maple Chocolate Chip Brownies for dessert, we’re sure you’ll find something to make your date. Pair your dinner with a delightful wine, refreshing beer, or craft cocktail.
Make Them Breakfast In Bed
One of the simplest ways to show someone you love them is to make them a cozy and delicious breakfast in bed. It’s a nice change of pace from the usual breakfast routine. Pancakes are one of the best meals for serving breakfast in bed and they’re easy to make! Simply order Ben’s premixed Blueberry Pancake Mix or classic Buttermilk Pancake Mix and a jar of New Hampshire maple syrup, mix it up, throw them on the griddle (or pan fry), and serve with orange juice, a side of fruit, or even a mimosa. And don’t forget to garnish the breakfast tray with a personalized gift like a card, flower, or silly toy to make them laugh. This is the perfect way to start Valentine’s Day off with a smile.
Shop Ben’s for Sweet GiftsIf you want to find gifts that are more unique than the standard box of chocolates and bouquet of flowers, we have a myriad of maple syrup products that make perfect Valentine’s gifts. For instance, our Pure Maple Candy Maple Hearts make a simple, yet delightfully sweet gift for any sweet tooth.
If you’re looking for a gift that is more personalized, we have a perfect idea. Build a gift basket full of yummy treats for your honey. This might include a mixture of Maple Kettle Corn, Maple Lollipops, Maple Taffy, and Maple Jelly Beans. Throw in a jar of Ben’s Wildflower Honey, some sweet pepper jelly, and, of course, a jar of Ben’s Pure Maple Syrup. You can even add a gift box that includes our maple syrup and pancake mix! Add a few personal touches like a card and a flower or two and you’ll have your partner melting with excitement!
