If you’re looking for a gift this Valentine’s Day that’s an extra bit special, beautifully packaged and absolutely delicious, look no further than Biscuiteers*. Biscuiteers are an artisan biscuit boutique that specialises in creating elaborate hand-iced designs that elevate the simple shortbread biscuit into a luxury treat. You’ve probably already spotted some of their wonderful creations and London icing cafe’s across social media, it was their adorable Peter Rabbit collection that first sparked my curiosity in the brand…
The Vintage Love Letter Biscuit Tin* is full of designs inspired by old-fashioned romance. It contains nine biscuits, all wrapped up very carefully in a reusable keepsake box. The whimsical designs include a white love bird, letters of various sizes, postboxes, stamps and even a beautiful blue fountain pen. The attention detail really is breathtaking and they almost look too good to eat. You can also have your own message iced onto one of the ‘letters’ for a lovely personalised touch.
The biscuits themselves are handmade and contain the Biscuiteers own unique recipe, based upon a traditional twice baked English style biscuit. They taste like shortbread, very rich and buttery, but have a snap to them like a gingerbread man and also a chewiness to them. They contain Madagascan vanilla and have at least 1 month’s shelf life from the moment they leave the kitchen for delivery. I think they’re delicious and my husband and I devoured this entire tin at an alarmingly quick rate.
I can express enough how wonderful I think this biscuit tin is. I’ve never received, let alone seen, anything quite as special as it before. Their Valentine’s Day collection also includes smaller gifts such as the ‘You’re My Lobster’ Letterbox Biscuit, Cupid gingerbread man and a giant tin of personalised chocolates, all which can be found here. There is also the option to make your gift even more spectacular by also throwing in a bottle of sparkling rose or prosecco for an additional charge. There are cute bespoke creations suitable for every occasion and including birthdays, baby showers and weddings, plus there is also a selection of gluten-free treats available too.0
