Valentine’s Day is just around the corner again and there seems to be an ever increasing compulsion to do something special, but that doesn’t mean it needs to be expensive. Valentine’s Day is all about celebrating your love for someone and showing them that you care and appreciate them, so you simply need to spend some quality time together.  Here are 5 of our favourite things to do:

Make Dinner Together

Where’s the fun in worrying about what to eat, where to eat and how much to spend? Let alone those over inflated restaurant prices. Make dinner more about the journey rather than the destination, find a new recipe and enjoy making it and devouring it together!

Take A Romantic Walk

Sometimes, a little stroll is all you need. Whether it be around your local area or if you travel a little distance to a special spot. Take the time out, wrap up and take a gentle stroll to enjoy each other’s company and make the most of the great British countryside.

Create Your Own Home Cinema

A trip to the cinema has now become an expensive excursion. This doesn’t mean a night watching a film has to, why not dig out an old DVD, and purchase a DVD or even use Netflix to choose a top watch for your night. You can even buy and/or bake a few treats to enjoy whilst you snuggle up and watch.

Love Vouchers

Rather than having to purchase expensive gifts, why not show your partner you care by creating your own little present. Get yourself some card and bring your creative side out to create little vouchers for cooking dinner, running a bath, a day out or even a massage.


Are you and you’re significant other devoted fans of Valentine’s Day? Why not spice it up and celebrate Valentine’s Day a day later.  If you celebrate on the 15th February instead, many shops will have slashed the prices on their Valentine’s stock. If you decide to go out, you also won’t find the same struggle to book a table as you would the day before.
