Seven Charming Confections That Say "I Heart You" This Valentine's

Not all sweet stuffs are created equal. Some are indeed more creative than others which may translate to being more expensive as well. But you can't really put a price tag on your significant other's blissful reaction while opening your Valentine's gift, can you?

In this regard, I've made a list of Seven Charming Confections that make for excellent gift suggestions this Valentine's.

Let's begin.

1.  Sinfully by Makati Shangri-la Pralines.

Decadent pralines beautifully crafted inside and out, top our list of great Valentine's gift choices. Choose from a plethora of bestselling flavors such as Salted CaramelMiel (Dark Choco with Honey); Peanut ButterViolette de Coco (Ube with Coconut in White Choco); Pistache (Dark Choco with Pistachio); Italian Kiss (Milk Choco with Amaretto & Coffee)---and get a taste of heaven in every bite.

Pralines also come in a Gorgeous Gift Box ( Php 60/ piece)
