Show Your Love From Abroad
by Sharma Taylor

Love is not on lockdown. If you are overseas and want to show your loved one in Barbados how much they mean to you, it’s as easy as the click of a button. Here are some awe-inspiring gift ideas that are perfect for spreading the love. 

Sweet and saucy

If your loved one has a sweet tooth, how about jams or candies? From Barley Sugar, Chocolate Plums, Coconut Minis, Fruit Drops, Ginger Bars to Fruit Mints, Golden Peanuts, Mango Melody, Paradise Plums and toffees, you’ll find it all on PriceWhirl’s online portal. And if your special someone is a bit more saucy, you’ll also find savoury or peppery treats. Pepper sauces, condiments, syrup concentrate, mauby syrup, cake mix/great cake, ginger beer, sauces, jams (fruit), chutneys and guava cheese make great presents.

Variety is the spice of life

We all know a foodie who appreciates edible surprises. Whether they enjoy baking, mixing different drinks, assorted spices can make a thoughtful gift. 

You can also turn up the heat with a fun foodie challenge. Each of you could try creating a unique cocktail from blending various syrups, local fruits and unusual flavours and give the mixtures a unique name. For another layer of fun, turn it into a game to name a feature or characteristic of the product that reminds you of each other.

Have you ever had a bake off? Try cooking together virtually and see who made it best. 

May the best virtual baker win.

Go Traditional

Chocolate is a gift-giving staple for a reason and if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Agapey Chocolate Factory specializes in dark chocolates in delectable flavours like toasted cashew, almond, espresso, coconut, salted caramel, nutmeg and rum and raisin. Agapey also has gourmet ice-cream in flavours such as mocha, strawberry, toasted almond and rum caramel. Don’t worry: it’s all natural, dairy-free, soya-free and gluten-free. What’s not to love? 

You’ll also find other Bajan favourites on PriceWhirl’s website, including BICO’s Double Delight Cherry Vanilla ice cream.’s that for a cherry on top?

Stan’ home and chill

Maybe your loved ones aren’t picky and would prefer having a drink while kicking his feet up and having a relaxing evening at home. Consider getting him Mount Gay rum, or maybe Banks beer, if that’s more his speed. You’ll also find a wide selection of wines on PriceWhirl’s website.
