They say that it’s always 5 ‘o clock somewhere! Make a not-quite-naughty gin infused zesty doughnut muffin by substituting in our earth-loving Gooseberry, Gin & Lime jam in Jassy’s classic recipe.

MarmalAID Upside Down Cake
Made with the citrus-cardamom flavours of MarmalAID, this aromatic sticky cake is the perfect DIY dessert to finish any romantic meal. Each jar sold donates £1.50 to Syrian Refugee projects via the Hands Up Foundation. See our Sam’s gravity defying recipe here.
Sustainable Seed Gifts
We're buzzing to be offering a range of organic seeds that'll suit every gardener, no matter how green their thumb. They'd pair perfectly with a DIY planter marker. Just grab some stones from the garden, and get ready to release your inner artist with a lick of paint – it's a great activity for all ages! Wrap it all up with a planet-friendly flourish, using vintage doily (found in all the best local charity shops) or scrap fabric.
Pots of Love
Looking for Valentine's day dinner inspiration? Jassy's dark chocolate pots are seductively rich, made with intense dark chocolate, tangy Seville Orange & Cardamom MarmalAID, and a boozy splash of Kew Orangery Sec. Each jar sold donates £1.50 to Syrian Refugee projects via the Hands Up Foundation.
Peas and love from Abel & Cole this Valentine’s Day!
