Valentines Day is just around the corner and if you still haven’t figured out what to gift your other half, not to worry! We have outlined the top 5 Valentines Day ideas which are sure to melt your valentine’s heart :)
1) Watch the Stars – Valentines Day at the Royal Observatory
We can all agree that there is nothing more romantic than gazing at the beauty of the night sky. This may not always be possible in London due to the great weather we have, however, this year you can enjoy a planetarium show featuring the most romantic sights in space at the Royal Observatory.
Valentines Day at Royal Observatory takes place on Friday 14th February 2014 from 5.30pm – 7.30pm and from 6.50pm – 8.50pm. Tickets cost £28.00. For more information, or to purchase tickets, please call the venue on 020 8312 6565.
2) Valentines Day Gifts
If you would rather spoil your valentine rotten, we have just the gifts for you.
It’s always easier to buy gifts for her than for him, we think. So we shall start with gifts for her. You could buy chocolates, flowers, soft toys, cards, jewellery, bags you name it! Here are a few special ideas:
- Red roses are a way to a girl’s heart. Give her a single red rose for that light-hearted romance, or a dozen red roses if you would like to get lucky.. Just kidding! :)
12 Red Roses with free chocolates from Debenhams for £24.99 http://www.debenhamsflowers.com/valentines-flowers/12-red-roses
- Chocolates are a way to anyone’s heart really. We came across this special Ferroro Rocher Chocolate arrangement which would be a truly adorable gift at £26.99
Or you could go for a more personalised touch with these humourous chocolate bars:
For only £5.99, this chocolate bar is sure to bring a smile to your Valentine’s face. Simply change the name to your Valentine’s name!
For a unique yet affordable necklace at £12.00, you could go for our designer infinity and forever love necklace.
The infinity sign signifies eternity and the delicate design keeps it simple and safe.. if you are not sure whether that is your Valentine’s style. A beautiful gift box is also included making it a perfect Valentine’s day gift.
- Personalised Cards
There are several stores where cards can be personalised but not like this. How about creating an edible Chocolate card for a little something different?
- Valentines Masculine Bouquet
Yes, we are sure they would love a bouquet if it was a bit more macho! For those ladies who love DIY, this is a great way to create a gift that your boyfriend will love and add your own personal touch to it.
What does he like? Cigars? Whisky? You could even add some cool gadgets to the bouquet.
-Tooks Beanie Hat with built-in speakers
How about a warm hat in this cold weather that has built-in speakers, allowing him to listen to his favourite music, whilst keeping warm and thinking of you? We think this is a very thoughtful gift:
- Superman Apron
Does he like cooking? Want to make him look macho while he does so? Just kidding! Just seeing a man at work in the kitchen gives us butterflies! This apron is a very thoughtful gift that will let your man know how super you think he is ;)
- Valentines Baking
Yes, we all know that food is a way to a man’s heart. A bit of valentines baking will show off your many talents and individuality. Here are a few baking ideas:
3) Georgian Valentines Ball at the British Library for £35
