Every year we get bombarded with a stream of emails regarding Valentines Day date offers or special Valentines Day packages where you go to a restaurant and get served a meal deal. We at Panache think its time that we ladies take the reins and plan for Valentines Day.
Before you plan for the big day make sure you read Huffington Post’s ‘Don’t do dinner’ article. Their list of do’s and don’ts for the special day will be sure that you and your date are ready for the 14th.
Now that you have the right frame of mind, check out The Evening Standard’s guide to alternative date ideas. We love all the original and wonderfully different options this list has, even if its not to your liking, we are sure their ideas will give you some date inspiration.
The UK has some of the most wonderful outdoor spots so if you have the weekend, why not take a romantic weekend Valentines trip to the coast line to soak up the fresh air. Alternatively towns such as Cambridge and Oxford play host to some of the most beautiful architecture and set the scene for a romantic getaway.
And if you are stuck on what to get your loved one for the special day, why not stay clear of the traditional flowers and opt for a beautiful candle that will last much longer and make their house smell delicious. For great chocolates take a trip to Hotel Chocolat, where a selection of chocolates can be bought in a variety of box sizes.
