Open Up A Different Kind of Box This Valentine’s Day

Open Up A Different Kind of Box This Valentine’s Day

February 05, 2020

Because who said boring chocolates are the only treat worth gifting?

 

There’s no doubt, tradition can be nice. Giving chocolates to your Valentine certainly checks the box, but, like everything in life, a little something unexpected is a great way to keep a loved one guessing!

If you’re looking to up your game this Valentine’s Day, think exotic and original, or simple and sweet. Make a gourmet meal, surprise them with a visit to a meaningful spot. It’s not about spending tons of money on jewelry or something extravagant. In fact, the most special gifts are all about being thoughtful. 

There’s a Japanese tradition when travelling to bring back special gifts -- often food -- known as Omiyage. These thoughtful gifts show your partner, friends or family that you love them. Little foods that are often colorful and carefully wrapped, are a way to say, “I know it’s not a lot, but I thought of you and how you might enjoy this.”

Mochi, a traditional Japanese dessert, can be the perfect example of this type of gift. And Mochi ice cream takes that traditional sweet treat a step further. While you may not have travelled to buy it, it’s still an adventure of a kind.

By gifting Mochidoki, you’re not only just breaking the mold, you’re also giving a present that’s decadent and fun to share. Share the story about Omiyage, imagine the adventures ahead and savor the experience in every bite!
