Valentine’s Day is almost upon us! If you haven’t made any plans yet, don’t stress – we’ve got you covered with our list of 14 last minute Valentine’s Day ideas.
1. Surprise your partner with a couple’s dance class
Picture you, your partner and a dance instructor teaching you how to rumba to sexy Latin beats. There’s a reason they call it the dance of love!
2. Wake up your loved one with breakfast in bed
Make them their favourite, whether it be pancakes, eggs, muesli, or fresh pastries. Be sure you include a latte and the papers, and your partner is guaranteed a great start to their day.
3. Pack a picnic, or let us pack one for you
Imagine you and your partner, a picnic blanket, a bottle of wine, a balmy February evening, and a gorgeous park (or beach. Or even backyard!). Fill your basket with cheese, a fresh baguette, charcuterie and antipasto. Or let us do the hard work and pack a picnic for you!
We’ve created a selection of picnic hampers to feed two. Call us on 9690 3024 if you’d like to order any (or all!) of the following:
Mediterranean Antipasto Hamper
4. Buy the classic, a bunch of flowers
Whether you have them delivered to your partner’s workplace, or waiting for them at home, they will make their day that much brighter.
5. Get tickets to an outdoor cinema
There’s something so romantic about spending an evening cuddled up outside, under the stars, watching a movie on the big screen. And bonus, they’ll often bring you champagne and snacks straight to your beanbag.
6. Make dinner reservations at your partner’s favourite restaurant
Let someone else do the cooking, while you gaze into each other’s eyes.
7. Or cook them dinner!
If your favourite restaurant is booked out, or you prefer to avoid the Valentine’s Day crowds, what better way to say I love you than by letting your partner put their feet up while you pour them a glass of wine and cook them dinner? Think hearty food, like our wagyu beef cheek served with cauliflower puree, honey roasted carrots and parsnips, Pedro Ximenez jus and crispy pancetta.
8. Book in for a couple’s massage
The perfect way to unwind together and let the stresses of your work day wash away.
9. Buy a delicious box of chocolates
Everyone loves chocolate! Buy your partner their favourite and you’re set for a sweet evening.
10. Go out for drinks
Return to the bar of your first date, or favourite date, sit close and enjoy a few drinks while you reminisce.
11. Book a weekend away
Give the gift of a weekend away in a few weeks’ time, so you can celebrate all over again.
12. Bake your loved one something sweet
Say I love you by baking a sweet treat like our raspberry and white chocolate cupcakes. Yum!
13. Tell them how much you love them, in a card
There are times when putting it in writing is much more meaningful, and a love note is something that can be kept forever.
14. Go all out!
With something crazy like a hot air balloon ride. An experience that you will both never forget.
