Things have been all go here for the last few weeks. We’re prepping for the arrival of our little one and working hard with new clients and a potential new venture.
It was just earlier today that I realised it’s Valentine’s Day tomorrow. How did that come around so quickly? It’s not long ’til Phil’s birthday either. So, I need to whip together a few little last minute treats for when he gets back from work tomorrow.
As I sit here making plans I thought I’d share some of my favourite last minute gift ideas with you. These are gifts you can order as e-vouchers, on Amazon Prime or in local shops.
Red Letter Days
An experience day always goes down a treat. I think these can be some of the best gifts to give. It allows you to spend time and unwind with your loved one.
Red Letter Days have many different experience days available. Think short breaks, spa days, cookery classes, afternoon tea and many more options. I think this gin tasting experience sounds fab as does a 3 course meal for 2 at Zizzi – they even do some fab vegan options.
What makes everything a little easier is that you can order any of the experience days as an e-gift voucher.
I’ll be collaborating with the brand later this month and I can’t wait to show you what Phil and I get up to.
It might sound a little boring and perhaps even obvious that it’s a last minute gift but a few bunches of cheap and cheerful daffodils will be sure to brighten up anyones day. They’re usually £1 a bunch from most local florists or supermarkets so you can grab a few on your lunch break. Easy and even better if you grab a couple of their favourite chocolate bars or a tub of ice cream for the evening.
This is one of my favourite things to do. Pick out the best bread, cheeses, meats, olives and other snacks to create an in-door evening picnic. It’s even better if you grab a bottle of your partner’s favourite drink. I already have Locksley Gin for Phil and for me, it will be a glass of Seedlip (alcohol free gin).
Make dinner or order a takeaway. I’d also suggest going out to a restaurant but frankly, they’re super busy on Valentine’s Day and you often have to book up ahead.
So, give your partner the chance to relax with a glass of their favourite tipple while you whip together something tasty for dinner or hit order on UberEats. Give them free reign of Netflix and spend the evening relaxing together. Don’t forget something tasty for dessert.
It doesn’t matter how you decide to spend Valentine’s Day, there are no rules. I like to use it as a way to remind me to tell friends and family I love and care for them.
