A Night In:
We all want a bit of romance so here’s a few of our more risqué gifts.
What about something fun like a ‘Get Naked’ sign from Ladida, perfect for the bedroom or bathroom. You could get your evening going with a bottle of their special hibiscus and elderberry Gin and couple your tipple with some delightful handmade chocolates from Chocablock because let’s face it, who doesn’t like chocolates?!
And then, at Hannah’s Candles there’s a whole range of Valentine’s gifts including the beautifully scented massage candles – yes, that’s exactly what they are…hot wax that you massage one another with! Or maybe you want to create your own heat, if so you’ll find some Body Shop massage oils at Body Rocks that’ll help your evening go sensually smoothly
Sometimes it’s easier to show your love by doing something together like enjoying a couple’s photoshoot with Dave Dodge Photography or what about something to pamper your loved one, there’s plenty of choice with your My VIP Card. From Swan Nails Pamper Packages to Younique beauty products and Date Night pamper package vouchers from Jordan Kindersley Makeup and Lash Artist to name a few. You could even show your partner how much you love them by buying them some stress free home cleaning with The Cleaning Lady Fareham!
What if you want to feel great and swing from the chandeliers throughout the year? Body Image Movement Global Ambassador, Vie, at www.vieness.co.uk can offer with workshops or 1-2-1 sessions which help individuals embrace and love their bodies.
If traditional is what you’re after, Dinner is on the card too:
