Valentine’s Day is supposed to be a relaxing holiday, filled with love and joy. However, as the days are counting down, one cannot ignore the overwhelming stress of choosing a gift for your partner.
So we have come up with 10 Valentine’s Day gift ideas your partner will surely LOVE:
1. A romantic getaway .
How long has it been since you and your SO have taken some time off just for the two of you? Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to pack your bags and run off to that exotic spot you’ve never had the time for. Check out this Day trip to the White Cliffs in down South.
2. A photo album.
What better way to remember all the fun times you both had together rather them printing and storing them in a cute photo album? This simple and cheap gift is a great bonding opportunity for the couple to relive the best times of their relationship.
3. A romantic dinner at home.
It is said that the best way to get to someone’s heart is through the stomach. Why not bust out that old recipe book and cook your sweetheart their favorite meal? What better way to spend your evening rather than accompanied by a warm home cooked meal, a bottle of wine and your partner? You can find plenty of recipes online or you can even cheat by ordering some proper cooked food but make sure you lay it out nicely before serving as if you cooked it. We tried it and it works magically. Also don't forget about wine, flowers and candles. Music can add too!
4. Or a romantic dinner out.
If you’re feeling like making it extra special, book a table for two at one of London’s most romantic restaurants. Have an unforgettable, Mexican experience at Ella Canta, Park Lane.
But if prices seem too spicy just go for number 3!
5. Tickets to a fun event.
We think that an experience weighs more than a material object. That is why getting your partner tickets to a fun event such as a beautiful concert or an amusing theatre play for Valentine’s day would make them remember that special holiday even more. For example a musical can be an amazing experience followed by a dinner out.
6. A romantic night under the stars.
If you live in London, you mustn’t miss the chance to spend Valentine’s day star gazing with your loved one. Check out Royal Observatory Greenwich's special Valentine's Evening with the Stars.
Of course we cannot forget about the symbol of love and the classic Valentine’s day gift: flowers. What a better way to surprise your loved one than with a beautiful bouquet of red roses? Or even better, why not buying some flowers in a beautiful pot.
Jewellery is thought to be one of the most popular Valentine’s day gifts as it is a sign of eternal commitment. It can be the perfect moment for an engagement ring, but it doesn't have to be so. A necklace can be a beautiful option too!
9. “Get a room!”
Not bold enough for an “outside of town” trip, but still tempted by the idea of a romantic getaway? Why not make a reservation at one of London’s most romantic hotels and get the experience of travelling while remaining in the comfort of your own town?
10. A romantic evening by boat.
Cruise down London’s Thames with your loved one in your arm on Valentine’s day. You will both spend a romantic quiet evening watching London’s moving landscape as you cruise down the river. There are some great options of restaurants on moored boats too, but cruising is always better!
