If you are anything like me, you’ll have been hiding your head under the covers and trying to avoid the hearts and flowers and teddy bears that have been lining the shelves since bloody Christmas.
It annoys me a little bit. I mean, if you’re going to be romantic, how about being romantic all year round?
Just a thought 🙂
But we all know that if boys proclaim that Valentines Day is just a money making scheme, their women will hit them round the head with their handbag. And I think it’s safe to say that the majority of girls would be secretly very happy to receive a gift or a card…even if they pretend they’re not expecting anything.
So here are some little last minute ideas to ease the burden. Even if you weren’t going to splash out on your loved one…why not change your mind and get ordering? And if you’re single and happy about it, why not splurge on yourself this weekend instead?!
Not necessarily the most original idea I know, but still always welcome. You can choose flowers at any budget, from a single red rose to 100 stunning Grand Prix Roses…for a whopping £500! Benefits are super quick delivery…and check out our London for Less page for a super discount code.
These uber-cool pendants from super stylist Nick Ede were only released last week, but I love them. Brilliant for Valentines Day or any occasion. Choose from Valentine, Love or Beautiful…or all three at these prices!
Book through Belaqua.co.uk and enjoy overnight accommodation, full English breakfast, a three course dinner, two course spa lunch, two 30 minute treatments and full use of facilities for just£99pp at Q Hotels. Available at 13 luxury spa venues nationwide through spa agents Belaqua, 7 days a week. Nice.
Drop in to Selfridges this weekend to pick up some gorgeous Fred & Ginger lingerie for your lady. You may usually hate buying underwear, but those lovely chaps at Selfridges are making it a little bit more pleasurable this weekend – a host of models will be strutting their stuff around the lingerie department in the “My Fair Lady” collection.
Treat your loved one to a romantic trip to London Zoo this weekend, for a fantastic bargain price of just £30 for 2, including a souvenir guidebook. This is one of my favourite places in London – visit & enjoy! Simply print off this voucher and present on arrival to take advantage of this fantasic offer. This voucher is valid on Valentine’s Day February 14th only.
If you don’t fancy braving the cold this weekend…or if you have kids and can’t get a babysitter…or if you just fancy staying in bed all day…why not just forget all the fuss, order in a pizza and celebrate with a nice bottle of wine or 2.
Whatever you get up to…whether you’re loved up or single…going out or staying in…enjoy it, big kisses & have a very happy weekend! x
