5 Sophisticated Valentine’s Day Gifts

The Sweet Life

Everyone could use a little more sweetness in their life. Aja Horsley, Environmental Scientist turned Founder and Owner of Drizzle Honey, crafts unique, high quality, local creamed honey right here in Alberta.

Each individual jar of Drizzle Honey’s products which include the darker, richer and mid-sweet spring honeysummer honey which is lighter in colour and floral in taste, winter-spiced honey with notes of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg, and seasonal honeycombs, naturally vary from product to product in both texture and taste. These are variations are what make Drizzle Honey all the more unique a Valentine’s Day gift. Plus, Aja has created a Drizzle Honey recipe book that educates her growing cult fan base on all the wonderful ways honey can be used, with a range of recipes that include breakfast, cakes, drinks, and even charcuterie. Drizzle Honey products are available online and through a number of Calgary retailers such as Cafe Rosso, Amaranth Foods, and Crave Cookies and Cupcakes.
