How to celebrate Valentine’s Day at home
20 January 2021 / Food /
Although you may not be able to organise your usual Valentine’s date night this year, it doesn’t mean it should be any less romantic. We’ve come up with the perfect itinerary for a very special lockdown Valentine’s Day.
Start the day with flowers
Start the day with a surprise, because – let’s face it – you can’t go wrong with flowers! Our florist, McQueen’s create beautiful bouquets for delivery, or make your own arrangement with Bloom & Wild’s carefully hand-packed letterbox flowers.
Not your usual brunch
You may not be able to leave your house, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be creative. Why not enjoy an indoor picnic? Find a giant blanket to sprawl out on, add cushions for comfort and some greenery to bring the outside in. To save you making the hamper, we recommend Pique’s Ultimate Brunch which includes blueberry pancakes with maple syrup and berries, mini pain au chocolat, pain au raisins and more!
Create an at home spa experience
Indulge in some self-care together and create an at home spa experience. Think candles, massages and essential oils to leave you fully relaxed. To help create a soothing atmosphere, we recommend investing in an ESPA diffuser.
Romantic Cocktail Making
Spend quality time together with Sipsmith’s Valentine’s Day Cocktail Masterclass. Ahead of the class, you’ll be sent a kit that includes ingredients to make two delicious cocktails which have been expertly designed for the occasion. As well as making these yourself, you’ll be guided through a tutored gin tasting and hear about how Sipsmith came to be and their influence in the recent Gin’aissance.
Dinner courtesy of a top chef
Make dinner extra special with the help of one of Britain’s top chefs! There are numerous restaurants creating delivery boxes that provide you with all the ingredients and instructions to make their meals easily at home. Our favourite has to be Jimmy Garcia’s!
Experience the theatre from home
If – like us – you’re missing a day or evening out at the theatre for special occasions, you’ll be pleased to learn that the National Theatre have introduced a streaming service whereby you can watch live recordings of plays from the comfort of your home. Why not dress up to make it feel as if you’re really there!
