So I will be spending Valentines without a bloke this year, however that doesn’t mean that I wont be making the most of the indulgence!
What better way to do that that a spa day! So I will be heading to Banatynes Spa in York thanks to Buyagift, although at the moment I have no idea who I will be taking with me. But who says you have to take a love interest.
There are so many things you could be doing this Valentines, so think outside the box. Somewhere like Buyagift is a great place to get a variety of treats. I have listed my Top 10, perfect if you are in a relationship or not!
Valentines Top 10 – first the 5 for couples, then the 5 for singles!
1 – What about a night away, somewhere unexpected and indulgent like say, a castle? A romantic dinner followed by a candle lit bath and a proper lie in. Whether you like the idea of sprawling country estates or the bright lights of the city, this is the treat for your loved one and you.
2 – Maybe you are a festival lover, then how about a night ‘glamping‘ not quite as grungy as a damp and grubby tent, ace voucher includes stays in camping pods, timber tents or wigwams at your choice of 11 beautiful locations across the UK. Whether you’re taking in the beauty of the Lake District or admiring rural Scotland. Perfect for couples who love to sleep all snuggled and warm.
3 – Why not treat your loved one to a present that will last longer than Valentines, this couples portrait is perfect! Fun and flirty day spent in front of the camera, something that will remind you for years to come of the fun you had!
4 – Sail along the Thames, the stars twinkling and the music softly floating in the distance, fill your tummies with gourmet courses and bubbles. Maybe the perfect setting for a proposal?
5 – Finally, want something really exhilarating How about a tandem bungee jump? A unique and exhilarating experience, you’ll be safely harnessed together before launching yourselves from the 160ft platform! This experience is a great way to enjoy an amazing adrenaline rush, and your hearts will race as you hurtle towards the ground
Now for those of you, like me spending Valentines single.
1 – Hurl yourself down the biggest hill you can find in these futuristic Zorbing rubber ball, you and your chosen victim are strapped facing each other in the harnesses inside the ball, before tearing off down a hill at speeds of up to 30mph. The general reaction is to laugh hysterically as you descend the hill, rolling and bouncing!
2 – Admit it, nothing is better on a single Valentines day than getting giddy with your best mate, so wine tasting is the perfect experience. You can start the evening nice and civilized and then hit the town and get up to some mischief.
3 – Love Louis Spence? Love Pinapple Dance Studio? How about an adult only dance class with a mate? But not just dance, how about singing and acting too? No matter what your level of experience the Sunday classes at Pineapple Performing Arts School will cater for you. They provide expert training and from experienced tutors that aim to improve every aspect of your performance. Your lesson will include one hour of singing, one hour of dancing and one hour of drama
4 – Do what I am doing and head to the Spa, nothing is more relaxing that a massage followed by a gossip round the pool! Feel yourself unwind and relax as you receive a reinvigorating and reviving 55 minute treatment each, choosing from a range of treatments including massages, facials and manicures. You’re then free to spend the rest of the day making use of the spa facilities including air conditioned gym, pool, Jacuzzi, steam room and sauna.
5 – Finally, how about a trip to Harrods for afternoon tea? The Georgian Restaurant has been one of the most refined places in London to take afternoon tea. In years gone by an afternoon visit to Harrods was not a mere shopping trip but a social highlight. Under the splendour of the original 1929 Art Nouveau skylight and elegant carved plaster ceiling
So this Valentines what will it be? You in need of a last minute present, did I mention you can have the voucher emailed to you in time, meaning you can keep it as a secret you are only just planning your Valentines day!
