Even if your loved one does say ‘oh darling, it’s just over-commercialised, don’t worry about Valentine’s Day’, don’t be cupids devil Everyone seems to treat themselves on Valentine’s Day, well ok if you don't, u can't avoid the hype of it.
Here I want to show you where you can source the best of Jersey produce for that special day. So rather than buying a generic gift, support a local business.
Bubbles are a Girl’s Best Friend
