Our Top 10 Love Tips

We’re not letting a little thing like lockdown stop cupid’s bow and arrow from shooting the power of love in your direction. We might be stuck at home but we’ve come up with a list of ideas and tips to still make Valentine’s Day just as fun and memorable.

We’ve also hand selected some of our favourite videos online offering tips, ideas and ways to look after yourself in lockdown.

1. Home Dining

You might not be able to make it to your favourite restaurant this year but why not bring the restaurant to you! Set-up a romantic space, throw in some candles, a bottle of wine and why not even dress up for the occasion. Then get relax and unwind while your gourmet meal arrives in style!

2. Home Spa Experience

What better way to relax and unwind than an at home spa experience. Grab the fluffy robes, slippers, cucumber slices and face masks and settle down for the night. Light some candles and grab your favourite chill-out tunes for a night of pampering. Make sure the Prosecco is chilled for a glass of bubbly and you could even run a hot bubble bath scattered with rose petals to enjoy together.

3.  Take your love outdoors

What’s more romantic than an evening under the stars? Grab some blankets and cushions, turn up the heat with a fire pit and roast some marshmallows while sipping on some fizz. Decorate your garden with candles and fairy lights to create a fairytale wonderland or consider hiring an outdoor hot tub for the evening.

4. Netflix and Chill

What better time to get in your comfies, grab some snacks and whack on a romantic movie… you never know where the night may take you!

5. Romantic walk

Wrap up warm and hit the road for a romantic walk. Pack a picnic basket filled with romantic treats and find a spot with a view where you can enjoy the scenery and each others company.

6. Love notes

Grab some post-its and write some romantic messages and place them around the house. Your Valentine will love discovering these sweet little messages in the strangest of places to show them just how much you love them. Or put pen to paper and write a love letter or poem –  a gift someone can treasure forever.

7.  Come dine with me

Have fun cooking up a storm in the kitchen and get creative with your dishes. You could each choose between a starter and a main to cook for each other and finish off with a sweet treat.

8. Do you like Piña coladas?

Grab your favourite ingredients, lots of ice, a cocktail shaker and shake it like a polaroid picture to whip up some delicious cocktails and make Valentine’s night one to remember.

9. Games night

Do you have a competitive streak? Enjoy challenging each other? Then grab the games and enjoy a games night. Whether it’s Scrabble, cards or even a computer duel, you’ll have fun together.

10. Separated this Valentine’s Day? We have you covered!

We know not everyone is able to be with the one they love this Valentine’s Day but there are ways around this. Why not order each of your favourite takeaways and arrange a time to get delivered, then head online for a virtual date night. Chat, eat and then see where the night takes you… there are lots of fun ways to get intimate together.
