We’ve done all the hard work for you, and have rounded up some of the best Valentine’s day date ideas. Whether you’re a hopeless romantic or prefer doing something a bit different, there’s something for everyone. Keep reading to discover our top 10 unconventional and romantic ideas for Valentine’s day, and make magic happen!

1. Cook a Meal Together

Our first Valentine’s day date idea is a tried and true classic, but there’s a reason why it’s so popular. With your partner, consider what your dream 3-course meal would be, find a good recipe, and cook it yourself! A home-cooked meal is much more romantic than eating a busy restaurant right?

Not only will you be spending quality time together, but you can tuck into some great home-cooked food too – a dream combo in our opinion (even if you don’t have chef-worthy skills). Make a real night of it with your very own personalised aprons and wine glasses (with your name on!)

2. City Break

What could be more romantic than whisking your loved one away on a romantic break and enjoying a couple of nights in a top hotel? This valentine’s day, opt for a change of scenery and discover everything a European city has to offer – whether it be closer to home or further afield.

Trips abroad are exciting, but English breaks can be equally as fun – and they don’t have to break the bank either! Check out this incredible two-night stay for two , which is currently 50% off, priced at only £99.99.

Don’t forget your personalised luggage tags! When you get back, frame those special memories in one of our photo upload framed prints, which makes the perfect post-Valentine’s day gift!

3. Movie Marathon

For those of you who prefer a chilled night in rather than hitting the town, this one’s for you. Grab yourself a night in movie set, complete with two retro straw cups and a popcorn bucket.

Cosy up on the sofa, tuck into your favourite snack and binge watch your favourite movie series. After all, who doesn’t love Netflix and chill?!

4. Spa Experience

If you’re eager to escape the hustle and bustle of modern-day life, a luxurious spa day really is the Valentine’s date you’ve been dreaming of.

Choose from a variety of stunning locations with state-of-the-art facilities, and unwind in the company of your loved one with treatments that are sure to provide you with much deserved relaxation and rejuvenation.

5. Recreate your First Date

Transport yourselves back to where it all began and re-live the magic of your first date. Take a trip down memory lane and relight your romantic spark along the way.

To make it extra special, why not throw in a personalised gift? You can’t go wrong with one of our personalised bubble balloons.

6. Meet Wild Animals

Attention animal lovers! Go totally wild for this animal encounter experience for two. With this package, you can explore the exciting world of the animal kingdom.

Whether you choose to walk with llamas, meet the big cats, hike with huskies or even swim with crocodiles, this unconventional valentine’s day date is bound to be a roarsome one!

7. Helicopter Ride

Take your love to a new height and experience the thrill and excitement of a helicopter ride. On this once-in-a-lifetime date, the sky really is the limit!

You’ll soar to over 1,000 feet, swooping over beautiful landscapes and seeing some amazing sights that you’d never get to experience on the ground. Even the bumpy bits create romantic moments for some impromptu hand-squeezing.

8. Double-date Games Night

Valentine’s day isn’t for everyone, and you don’t need to go all out to show your partner just how much they’re loved.

Instead, why not keep it super chilled and invite some friends over for a takeaway and games night? It would make the perfect occasion to play our hilarious First Dates game, or if you think things will get more rowdy, booze and ‘Pong Wars’,must be on your shopping list!

9. Countryside Walk

For couples on a budget, head out to the countryside and take a romantic stroll. It won’t cost a thing! Enjoy the fresh air, and be happy that you’ve done some exercise on what is often a very indulgent day for the majority of us.

If you’re a proud puppy parent, make sure you bring your pooch along too, and don’t forget to treat them to a Valentine’s gift as well. After the walk, wipe those mucky paws down with a personalised towel, and let them relax in their very own pet bed

10. Take it to the Bedroom
