Romantic Valentine's Day ideas
4 February 2016
Valentine's Day is the perfect excuse to spoil your loved one. You can take the traditional route, wooing your partner with red roses and chocolates and we have the perfect choice of Valentine's gifts, from a single red rose through to a dozen roses with delicious chocolates.
And why not make it a day filled with romance!
Start with a hearty breakfast, by making heart-shaped poached or fried eggs on heart toast and shape tomato peel into a pretty rose.
Dot post-it notes with sweet nothings around the home and send romantic texts during the day.
Arrange to meet for a cosy lunch at a pub with a roaring fire or tuck into afternoon tea at a stately home and have a romantic stroll round the grounds.
Unique gifts are always appreciated, so get crafty and fill a scrap book or make a collage with shared moments, including photos, theatre tickets and cards. Make cookies, cupcakes or chocolate truffles and pop them in a pretty box. Use Pinterest for inspiration.
For a decadent dinner with fizz, indulge in a posh supermarket's Valentine's Day meal deal. Or better still, why not cook your partner's favourite dish at home, lighting candles and adding vase of spring flowers to your table to set the scene.
Then, snuggle up with your favourite movie and glass of bubbles on the sofa - Love Actually or Casablanca should do the trick! The rest is up to you...
Happy Valentine's Day!
