For some, Valentine’s Day is a day that involves smothering your loved one with expensive gifts and soppy cards and for others it’s a money-making commercial sell-out. Whether you’re a fan or a foe we’ve put together a list of ideas that will make your special someone feel appreciated regardless of your budget.
Free or Inexpensive: *Sunset picnic at a gorgeous outdoor location; laden with a comfy blanky and a basket full of scrumptious nibbles and drinks. (Pack some chilled fizz and real glasses to score extra points) *Spa treatment at home. Transform your bedroom into a tranquil environment with soft candlelight and relaxing music. (Get creative and Google recipes for massage oils, skin masks and body polishes)
Won’t Break the Bank: *Book at one of your favourite restaurants or one that you have both discussed but haven’t gotten around to visiting yet. Lots of restaurants offer a set menu so ask what your options are when making the booking. (Great tip: Book an Uber Black and travel to & from dinner safely and in luxury) *Go horse riding if it’s something you know your beloved will enjoy. A trot through the forest or on a beach is both fun and romantic. (Book a private ride so it’s just the two of you)
Go all out: *A helicopter trip around the peninsula or over the city for an absolute spoil. This is sure to be an unforgettable experience. (Pack a camera to capture the look on his/her face) *Wake up early and head off for a hot air balloon ride. This one is weather dependent but if you get it right it will be priceless.
