____________
Looking to spice up Valentine’s Day? Premium hand-cooked English crisp brand Tyrrells is launching limited edition, Honey and Chilli, set to get pulses racing on February 14th, the most stimulating day of the year.

Tyrrells’ latest addition combines mellow, sweet honey with the fiery spice of chilli – guaranteeing to heat up any date night! Full of aphrodisiac properties, both honey and chilli can have provocative effects on the body – the first tinkering with hormone levels while the latter triggers nerve endings on the tongue – releasing endorphins and increasing heart rate.
We are all destined to fall in love at first bite!

Bestowing this ‘passionate’ addition with some extra love, Tyrrells will also be running competitions on social media. Followers will have a chance to win a bundle of tantalising crisps along with a selection of date night essentials, including wine, candles and a specially created treasure hunt game.

Sarah Lawson, Tyrrells Marketing Manager, said: “At Tyrrells, we’re always looking for ways to introduce new and different additions that bring our unique and often quirk personality to life. Our new Honey and Chilli variety has an extra special place in our hearts as it is the first crisp with aphrodisiac properties that’s ever been created!”

Tyrrells’ potato crisps are made in small batches from locally grown, seasonal varieties of potatoes at Tyrrells Court Farm in Herefordshire. Hand-cooked and seasoned to perfection with the finest, specially selected ingredients, the crisps boast a unique curl, signature crunch and superlative taste.

Valentine’s Day is dedicated to showing that special person in your life what they mean to you.

To help with this, you can get the typical “love gifts” such as flowers, chocolates, stuffed animals, cards, etc., but don’t expect the great reaction you’re hoping for. You’ll probably get a smile, hug and maybe even a stomach ache after you eat some of those chocolates.

Don’t get what’s expected. You can do better.

This year, surprise your loved one with something unique and from the heart. Songfinch creates one-of-a-kind personalized songs based on your stories and memories making the most emotion-packed gift you can give. The process can take as little as 15 minutes and within 7 days, you’ll have a gift that will crown you the “Valentine’s Day Gifting Champion.”

The process is super simple.

You kick off the process by telling us who the song is for, the occasion and how you would like them to react when they hear it. Next, share your favorite memories, stories and feelings to inspire the lyrical content. Lastly, select your preferred vocalist gender, song’s mood and genre to shape the style and tone of the song.

From there, we’ll use your selections to hand select the perfect professional musician from our Songwriting Community of over 350 members. Over the next 7 days, your songwriter uses your submission to write, record and mix a radio-quality song that brings everything to life like never before.

Once your song is finished, it lives on a private URL called your Story Homepage. On this page, you can listen to your song, download the MP3, read the lyrics, learn about your Songwriter and easily share your personalized song with family and friends.

With plenty of add-ons including a photo slideshow (included free with Song From Scratch), CDs, 7” custom pressed vinyl records, and sheet music, you can choose the best way to present your new favorite gift.

This year, win Valentine’s Day and #GiftBetter with Songfinch.

Use RUGBY20 at checkout for $20 off your Song From Scratch.

Not only does this make an incredible Valentine’s Day gift, but it also makes a great gift for a birthday, anniversary, wedding, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, newborns, memorials, soldier deployments and more.

Give your loved one “the world” this Valentine’s Day with a gift developed by NASA

www.ecospheres.co.uk

INSTAGRAM | FACEBOOK

This Valentine’s Day, most people will revert to the familiar tactic of buying chocolates, flowers or jewellery, but for those looking for something less mainstream, a gift now exists that allows you to literally give your loved one the world.

Pioneered by NASA, an Ecosphere is a self-contained ecosystem within hand-blown glass; essentially a mini world that you can hold in your hands and display in your home or office – perfect for someone wanting to make a big gesture on an earthly budget.

Originally developed by scientists and NASA as they studied how animal and plant life could be used to sustain humans in space exploration, by comparing open, balanced ecological systems with closed ecosystems, these intriguing little objects, up to 19 centimetres in height depending on the shape you choose, contain small marine shrimp, filtered sea water, algae, micro-organisms, artificial gorgonian (plant) and gravel.

While this might sound like the complete antithesis of a romantic gift, Ecospheres are actually very beautiful, calming to look at and popular with interior designers. And because they’re completely sealed, they do not require anything else apart from a source of indirect natural or artificial light to survive. The gorgonian, gravel and glass provide the ecosystem with everything the micro-organisms need to flourish, feed and sustain the life cycle that allows the Ecosphere to function.

This means that, unlike flowers, which may look their best for around a week after you’ve purchased them, Ecospheres have an average life expectancy of two to three years, although it isn’t uncommon for them to survive for over double this length of time. What, then, could be a better gift to show the enduring love for your partner?

Tammy Edwards, Operations Director for Ecosphere, said: “Just as everyone’s relationship is unique and special, so too is every Ecosphere. Because we hand cut the gorgonian branch for each individual one and offer a range of shapes and accessories – as well as the option to engrave the sphere – no two Ecospheres are ever the same, making them fantastic, personalised gifts for loved ones this Valentine’s Day.”

FertileCheck® Fertility Gel FOR USE WHEN TRYING TO CONCEIVE

Another Great Valentine’s Gift Idea! @ BOOTS !

FertileCheck Fertility Gel is currently available at:

 

Many couples fail to conceive when they unwittingly use lubricants that are counterproductive to sperm viability and motility. Out of 200 million sperm released in ejaculation, only 200 will make it to the egg! It is essential that optimum conditions be created to prolong sperm life and provide every opportunity for fertilization when a woman is most likely to conceive. FertileCheck Fertility Gel with hyaluronic acid is an advanced lubricant that helps create a sperm-friendly environment in the vagina by optimizing pH levels naturally to improve the chances of conception.
The Science
• Hyaluronic acid (HA) is an important lubricant our bodies produce, which is continually secreted and then sent throughout the bloodstream
• The vagina is a very hostile environment for sperm, and the presence of semen initially triggers an immune reaction. Once pH levels naturally adjust to the semen, HA has an important, positive influence on the viability and motility of sperm to help them fertilize the egg
• Using a fertility gel with an all-natural HA-rich formula enhances and preserves the reproductive environment for a couple trying to conceive. Ingredients in other lubricants can actually create a barrier for sperm
• Ingredients: Aqua, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Hyaluronate, Disodium Phosphate, Methylparaben, Citric Acid. FertileCheck does not contain hormones
• Biocompatibility-tested following EN ISO 10993
• Medical device class IIa / production following EN ISO 9001:2000 and EN ISO 13485:2003
How FertileCheck Compares to Other Gels
The Sperm Motility Index (SMI) is used to measure the performance of all fertility gels, calculated by dividing the percent of progressively motile sperm in a test solution by that in the control solution. Any gels with a value less or equal to 0.75 are predictive of poor-assisted reproduction outcomes and indicate sperm toxicity. Results of clinical trials* show:
• FertileCheck outperformed all other fertility gels currently available in the UK, with a SMI value of 0.99
• FertileCheck is 87% more effective than the previous fertility gel available in major UK retail stores (Replens), which had a SMI value of 0.12
• FertileCheck was directly tested in a 24-hour sperm-survival assay against Zestica, which only had a SMI value of 0.65
