6 Romantic Gifts: For The Girl (Or Guy) Who Prefers Food To Flowers
1/6 Customisable Cheese Platters
Love comes in many forms: grated, grilled, griddled...
Ask someone to, "Brie mine," with Keju by Carmen's Valentine's Day cheese box. Founder Carmen has always had an eye for pretty things, from interior design to flower and table arrangements, brings that passion to her business. In 2019 alone, Keju arranged 78 grazing tables and assembled more than 150 cheese platters.
Her curated box for Valentine's Day encompasses a sweet and savoury mix of cheese, crackers, chocolate, fruit, and a drink (can be alcoholic or non-alcoholic).
ORDER: DM or WhatsApp +6012 605 5481 by February 11th or before stocks run out.
2/6 Single-Origin Malaysian Chocolate
Support Malaysian single-origin chocolate (which taste better than mass-produced sweets anyway) and introduce your sweetheart to Chocolate Concierge. Seasonal heart-shaped confections include the Strawberry Pink Pepper and Be My Date (pictured above), but don't overlook other fun flavours such as Sweet Laksa, Double Shot Cappuccino, and Mango Django.
Mix and match different bon bons for RM4.98 per piece, RM55 for a signature 6-piece box or RM250 for a heart-shaped 22-piece box.
ORDER: By emailing firstname.lastname@example.org (free shipping for orders above RM150 within the Klang Valley) or visiting Chocolate Concierge's counter at Jasons Food Hall in Bangsar Shopping Centre.
3/6 Local Figs
In 'Sex, Sensuality and Sin: Fruit Symbolism in Art' by Fruit Punch Mag, the writer delves into the sensual symbolism of various fruit, including ficus carica or the common fig: "In Greco-Roman culture, the fig is associated with female genitalia."
Mainly because figs split at the seam, are quite red and give off an overall vulvic vibe.
Whether or not you see it, fresh figs are fantastic, especially those grown by Mutiara Figs in Shah Alam. Opt for the rectangular box (400 grams for RM50), the marbled circlular box (800 grams for RM99) or the rectangular box with your choice of bottled fig products (2 jars of jam or sambal for RM45).
ORDER: DM or WhatsApp +6017 653 6977.
4/6 Edible Bouquets
Making traditional bouquets boring, Koffeeling.fefeeling applies flower arrangement skills to food instead. Bundling anything from fried chicken to Ferrero Rocher and doughnuts to assorted nuts, the company makes the ludicrous look quite lovely, actually. But it's the burger bouquet containing 10 McDonalds cheeseburgers that truly takes our breath away.
A minimum of three days notice is necessary for Koffeeling.fefeeling to assemble your order. Delivery areas cover Kuala Lumpur, Shah Alam, Bangi and Putrajaya.
