Valentine's Day Breakfast in Bed Tea and Biscuits
Wake up to proper English fare starting with Breakfast Tea, Bicuits and Wild Blueberry Preserve in this lovely keepsake gift tin from Crabtree & Evelyn! Something sweet to start your day and keep those memories there after.  Set contains: White Chocolate & Raspberry Biscuits, Lemon and White Chocolate Biscuits, English Breakfast Tea and Wild Blueberry Preserve.

Yummy delights to start your Valentine's Day morning.
Belgium Waffles
Buttermilk Belgium waffles (try this Cheese Pumpkin Weekend Waffle Recipe from are always so right for a fancy breakfast. Save some time and get the toaster or frozen variety. Serve them with butter and a touch of the C & E Wild Blueberry Preserve and the Breakfast Tea (of course). Set everything on a breakfast tray and enjoy everything in bed.

Sugar n' Spice
One of the most sensuous smells is that of vanilla and brown sugar. There's a reason why girls used to dab a little vanilla behind the ears. Amp up your breakfast-in-bed Belgium Waffles by adding Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract to the batter and by topping them with Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Sugar. This subtle layering of delicious, natural vanilla will warm up more than just the waffles. See more exclusive gourmet extracts at
