Craft a Perfect Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is the perfect occasion to show your significant other just how much they mean to you. This year, rather than gifting the classic box of chocolates and flowers, why not make it a personal, memorable one with more unique thoughtful touches?

We’re here to get you thinking with five enchanting ideas on how to fill the day with sweet surprises, warm smiles, and unforgettable moments.

1. Finding The Perfect Gift

What You Can Do

1. Finding The Perfect Gift

Finding a great gift is easier than it might seem at first! The best gifts usually fall under the title of functional, fun, or sentimental.

For fun gifts, think about things that would make them laugh, or maybe book something unique and exciting. Remember, the gift doesn’t have to be on Valentine’s Day (though bonus points if you do!), but a fun date out or mini-adventure might add something extra to look forward to in the year.

For functional gifts, look at their interests. Maybe they want to try something new and have been holding off for a while? Or maybe it’s a simple gift that makes the general day-to-day far easier.

For treasured gifts, look for something that would have extra meaning. Jewellery is a classic gift, but something that generates memories is perfect. A holiday away together can hold as many treasured memories as something shiny.

A great start leads to a great Valentine’s Day. Why not surprise your loved one with a breakfast in bed featuring their favourite lavish breakfast, complete with the Coffee or Tea they love?

Fluffy pancakes are a popular option, as is fresh fruit, fried breakfast, or simply a variety of little snacks to enjoy

Bonus points if you include extra lovey-dovey touches like heart-shaped pancakes or strawberries, and don’t forget a tray for crumbs or an accidental coffee spill!

The classic afternoon recharge is a great chance to make the day more special, especially for tea lovers.

Try creating an afternoon tea station with a variety of options – from classic black teas to herbal blends, to those unique picks from across the globe. Pair the teas with an assortment of biscuits, cookies, and pastries, and for an extra touch of elegance, arrange them on a tiered stand!

The one that always works!

If you decide to stay in, warm up the evening with a feast of hot chocolates set up with a variety of toppings. Start with a rich, high-quality hot chocolate base such as our luxury milk chocolate, and add a bonanza of marshmallows, whipped cream, chocolate shavings, caramel drizzle, and more. Why not see who can create the most fantastically over-the-top hot chocolate? 

It’s a great way to satisfy their sweet tooth but also to have a giggle together!

It pairs beautifully with our next idea too…

Snuggle up together with pillows, blankets (and your over-the-top hot chocolates) and enjoy a movie night together. Watch a collection of your favourites, watch something you haven’t had a chance to yet, or simply chill with a great film.
