For a missed anniversary

It might be that you forgot you and your partner’s big anniversary this year, and they’re not too pleased with you. If that’s the case, we have plenty of apology gifts for him as well as “I’m super sorry” gifts for her.

Did we mention that this blissful bundle comes complete with a bottle of crisp Sauvignon Blanc? Well, it’s included, and it’s perfect for sharing for when they accept your apology. There’s also a carton of our finest Butter Fudge in there. Although, it’s probably best to let them keep that treasured treat to themselves!
