With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, now is the time to start thinking about how to treat your loved one and make sure your Valentine’s is one to remember.
Here are our top 5 ways to say I love you this February 14th
Create a trail for their treats
Make more of the gift giving process this year by creating a fun treasure hunt for your loved one’s presents.
Leave little clues that lead the way – it’s easiest to start with your final present and work backwards, but you can include numerous treasure locations throughout your hunt.
Your clues could be handwritten, photographs or even small gifts such as heart shaped chocolates, which will lead your partner through the trail.
Do a test beforehand to make sure the treasure hunt has been planned to perfection and then sit back and watch as the fun begins!
Time out for two
If you’re both busy during the week, with little time to relax, then why not plan a day together which involves some TLC for the two of you. A spa day is a luxurious way to unwind and help you find your zen. Whether it’s a refreshing facial, deep tissue massage or exfoliating body scrub, you can find packages to suit your needs whilst spending some quality time together. They’ll love you for it!

A fun-fuelled day
Do something out of the ordinary and have a great laugh with your partner in the process by planning a triathlon of great activities they will love.
The adventurer – why not set off on a great adventure and book an activity such as kayaking, bouldering or zorbing. Spend the day competing and bonding on your great adventure.
The gamer – fill the day with some competitive gaming and see who comes out on top! It can be a great laugh getting involved in a partner’s hobby.
The romantic – for those with a romantic streak, why not spend the day taking a walk in the park, going to a pottery or cooking class and topping off the day ice-skating to get them swooning.
The historian – take a trip to your local art gallery or museum so you can both spend a day exploring and learning about the wonders history has to behold.
The home bird – if your keeping Valentine’s day to yourselves and staying home, why not find a board game which makes your partner laugh, try baking a new delicious dessert together and even finish the evening with a “how well do you know each other” quiz to get you both smiling.
