All anyone wants this February 14th is to feel appreciated and loved – whether it’s an over-the-top gesture or a simple, subtle display of affection. Looking for some fun and romantic Valentine’s Day ideas? From a romantic weekend getaway to classic date ideas, we’ve got you covered.
#1 Get Physical
Get your heart racing – no, not that way – with some exercise. A bit of vigorous activity will get those endorphins flowing, so head out on a nature hike together, take a stroll by the river or try a spot of horse riding. Some fresh air will add some colour to your cheeks – and it’s sure to put you in a romantic mood.
#2 Pamper Yourselves
Treat your other half to an indulgent massage or book both of you in for a romantic couple’s massage. The soothing treatment, aromatic oils and calming environment will leave you both feeling relaxed and pampered.
#3 Get A Room
Booking a hotel room can add an exciting change to your daily routine; as a long-term couple it can be difficult to get away from work, chores and kids, so changing your surroundings can be the easiest way to make you feel like a brand new couple again. Some picturesque scenery, a bit of peace and quiet, and someone else does the dishes – that’s romance.
#4 Go Fancy
Dress up in your glad rags and make a reservation at a swanky restaurant. Make Valentine’s even more special by dressing up for the occasion and taking your significant other out for the evening. At The Kailyard by Nick Nairn we’ve got a Valentine’s weekend dinner that will wow your other half.
#5 Sweeten Things Up
Keep it simple with a huge box of chocolates this Valentine’s – you can’t go wrong with a box of their favourites. Or take it to the next level and book an afternoon tea experience with some bubbly and a range of sweet treats. It’s definitely not the day to be counting calories!
Want to treat your special someone? Buy them some gift vouchers to be spent on beauty treatments, a Valentine’s Dinner or Prosecco Afternoon Tea for Two.
