Valentine’s Day is a time for prosecco, chocolates, a drop more prosecco, and sharing moments with the ones you love, whether it’s your partner or your best mate. We’re counting down the top five things we LOVE about Valentine’s Day. Tell us yours in the comments and share the love!
1. Special Dinners
Who doesn’t love getting dressed up and going out for dinner? Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse for a candlelit dinner with a glass of wine or two and a dessert to share. Upgrade your date night with an overnight stay and breakfast in the morning and enjoy a relaxing romantic evening for two.
We may have said it (twice) already, but prosecco really is a favourite Valentine’s Day treat. Get the nice flutes out and join us in a toast to love all over the world!
3. Heart Shaped EVERYTHING
Chocolates. Cards. Cloud shapes. Everything takes on a heart shape in honour of Valentine’s Day, and the scones at Laura Ashley The Tea Room are no exception! Almost too pretty to eat, these sugar-dusted treats are the perfect addition to a Valentine’s Afternoon Tea (which, incidentally, is another absolute favourite thing about Valentine’s Day – sharing tea, cake and chatter with someone you love makes for a wonderful afternoon)…
4. Gifts with Meaning
It’s not just about stuffed teddies and bunches of roses – we love the thought of giving a small gift that means something big. It's a truly special and personal way to say ‘I love you’, whether it’s baking their favourite cake, giving a framed photograph of a happy time or spoiling them with a voucher to spend on an experience together and create new happy memories.
5. Time Spent
Our number one favourite thing about Valentine’s Day isn’t a material thing (even though we love the heart-shaped treats!). Making time to spend with the person or people (or pets!) you love is the most important thing you can do on Valentine’s Day to show someone you appreciate them every day of the year.
How will you be celebrating all things love this year? Whether you choose a springtime stroll in the park or a tower of heart shaped scones, we wish you a very happy Valentine’s Day from Corus Hotels.
