Make this valentine’s weekend is one to remember

Valentine’s Day is a really special day of the year to a lot of couples. Whether you’ve been dating someone for a while, are in a long term relationship or are newly in love, you’re certain to be wondering about what to do to make valentine’s weekend special this year.

There are lots of different things you can do to make it one to remember, here’s some inspiration to get you feeling all romantic whatever type of couple you are:

A Romantic Dinner

A simple way to celebrate Valentine’s Day if you’re a couple not looking to make a fuss is to go for a romantic meal. If you’re planning on heading somewhere fancy, make sure that you make a reservation soon as with the special day being on a Sunday this year, Saturday night is bound to be busy. If you don’t want to go to a busy restaurant full of other couples you could even cook for your partner and make something extra special. Make sure that you’ve got a few candles lit, a lovely bunch of roses and something fizzy chilling in the fridge to make it super special.


A Weekend Away

If you’ve been together awhile and are looking to put a little bit of excitement back into your relationship or you’re in the honeymoon period and can’t wait to spend some alone time together then a weekend away is a great idea. Going on a city break or escaping to the countryside is a great way to spend some quality time together as a couple and get that romantic spark back. Complete with a gorgeous meal and beautiful hotel room, there’s no better way to spend Valentines. Take a look at the gorgeous weekend breaks at Classic British Hotels, which are sure to impress your loved one.


A City Break

If you’re really wanting to impress your loved one this year then the best way to do it is with a city break. Book tickets to a romantic destination and surprise them a few days before. Whether you head to Paris, Dublin, Amsterdam or further afield is up to you. Although a more expensive weekend, going abroad will certainly impress. Book a night at a famous restaurant or go sightseeing to make it extra special.

So, whatever type of couple you are, there’s definitely something you can do to make sure that this Valentine’s Day is one you won’t forget.

    We have celebrated V-day about twice in 14 years. This year we are going out for dinner at a local restaurant for a curry because it’s our absolute favourite!

      That’s sounds lovely, I love curry. We don’t usually celebrate V-day on the day itself for us it’s either the weekend before or after

    I love the city breaks idea – however we are not ones to celebrate valentines day usually. I guess we should make the effort more!

      Me too I love city breaks

    I dont know what we are doing, if anything, this year, it isnt something we tend to make a big deal of x

    • January 24, 2016 / 3:44 am

      I am one of those people that don’t usually make a big deal about it but I want to this year

    I have to admit we don’t really celebrate valentines – we are on holiday with the kids this year

    • January 22, 2016 / 2:49 pm

      Have a nice holiday

    We love the M&S two can dine in offer, as we never have time or the money for a romantic weekend break!

    • January 21, 2016 / 10:22 pm

      I love M&S but never tried it

  6. January 21, 2016 / 9:22 pm

    We don’t really do much on valentine’s day as it’s hubby’s bday on the 11th and our wedding anniversary on the 21st. I might cook a nice dinner though

    • January 21, 2016 / 10:18 pm

      Awwww that’s so cute, I would just cook too

  7. January 21, 2016 / 8:57 pm

    Some really great ideas here. We’ve never really celebrated valentines day, I usually buy my husband a card but that’s about it!

    • January 21, 2016 / 10:09 pm

      Thanks, a card is nice. We usually go for a meal but I want to cook something

  8. January 21, 2016 / 8:09 pm

    Nice ideas, I’d love a weekend away or a city break. Unfortunately we don’t have any spare money 🙁 Ray xx

    • January 21, 2016 / 8:11 pm

      Thanks. I think in that instance a romantic meal at home for two is a great idea

  9. January 21, 2016 / 8:07 pm

    I love the idea of a city break. Unfortunately though as we are now parents it just isn’t feasible! We will definitely be doing something romantic together though like going for a meal x

    • January 21, 2016 / 8:10 pm

      As much as I love city breaks I am more of a weekend getaway kind of girl

  10. January 21, 2016 / 6:54 pm

    I love your ideas. I really need to put more effort in this year, although I have no money so it will prob be a handmade card and a M&S dine for two deal!

    • January 21, 2016 / 6:56 pm

      Thanks, I think that sounds amazing too. What’s important is that you spend it together however you can

  11. January 21, 2016 / 5:29 pm

    Great ideas but with two under twos I think our Valentines Day will be a movie at home interrupted by calls of “a glass of water” and “I can’t sleep”. LOL.

    • January 21, 2016 / 6:12 pm

      Lol! Bless I am sure even that will still be very special
