Welcome to your ice cream paradise, we offer a variety of delicious flavors that will make your beloved’s heart melt for you. During Valentine’s week, every day is a new opportunity to express your love in different, creative ways and the effort it takes is worth it for the happiness our loved ones give us. At Big Bros Ice Cream Place in Chicago IL, we create a variety of flavor-rich ice creams with quality and fresh ingredients that make the experience delightful.

Day 1: Strawberry Rose Bouquet

On the first day of Valentine’s week, you can start by expressing your love with a beautiful bouquet of roses paired with our strawberry-flavored ice cream. Pair it with hot fudge, chocolate chips, or brownie chunks for a delicious blend of flavors or maybe you can try pairing it with cookies. You can put a card on your bouquet of roses and try writing cute poetry to show your affection.

Day 2: Twisted Delight

On the second day of the week, you can embrace the creativity of our Chocolate Vanilla Swirl or Strawberry Vanilla Swirl ice cream flavors and pair them with a Spotify playlist, made with all the songs that remind you of them. You can take them out on a simple date, perhaps a picnic, and listen to all those songs together while enjoying the delightful tastes of our swirls that mix together perfectly. Like every couple has “our song”, you can spend the evening watching the city lights with them, while listening to all the songs that express your love for each other.

Day 3: Jar of Love

This DIY gift idea needs some extra preparation but is definitely worth the effort. You can bring a jar filled with little notes that tell your beloved everything you love about them. This gift is special because whenever your beloved may feel lost or sad, they can open up the jar and immediately be filled with positivity. You can either write some motivational messages on those notes or you can write about every aspect of them, that makes you happy. You can pair this gift with our delicious Banana Split ice cream that we serve at our ice cream shop in Chicago IL, and complete it with hot fudge, sprinkles, and cookies.

Day 4: Caramel Sweetness

On day four you can surprise your beloved with delicious caramel-flavored ice cream, paired with a picture album of memories. In this digital age, all our pictures are on our phones but it can never replace the experience of going through a photo album together. You can take your beloved outside or maybe share an evening where you can gift them a custom photo album that has your pictures in chronological order. Walk through the memory lane together while you enjoy the sweetness of caramel.

DAY 5: A Game of Surprises!

Make the fifth day of your Valentine’s week a little exciting for you and your beloved with delicious Fudge and Brownies that we serve at our ice cream place in Chicago IL. Make your night delightful by playing a game of surprise notes where you both fill a box with dares that the other partner must do if they lose a game. Play any game of your choice, be it cards, computer games, ‘rock, paper, scissors’ or whatever makes it fun for you. The loser must pick up a dare from the winner’s box, leading to an exciting and fun-filled time while you enjoy the deliciousness of fudge and brownies.
