With the January blues slowly disappearing that can only mean one thing; Valentines Day is just around the corner!
If you’re like the rest of us, the most romantic day of the year can creep up before we’ve even had a chance to catch our breath in the New Year. This usually leads to some unfortunate presents and, if we’re not careful, the odd fight and night on the sofa…
With that in mind we thought we’d steer you well away from some of the worst suggestions we’ve ever heard for Valentines Day 2017!
It’s safe to say that New Year resolutions are pretty hard to stick to. If, over the first six weeks of the year, you’ve noticed your partner slip with their “New Year New Me” promises we highly recommend you don’t choose Valentines Day as the moment to remind them!
Gym memberships are great but almost never as presents. Stick to something less critical…
If you’ve had a busy start to the year Valentines Day might not be top of your to-do list but avoid those last minute panic purchases at all costs. Especially if you look down to see your hands stuffing a scratch card into a hastily written card!
Many of us enjoy a little flutter on the races, football or lottery but £5 and £10 scratch cards have no place in a fun Valentines Day. Trust us!
If you’ve chosen Valentines Day as the day to pop the big question good for you!
We couldn’t be more excited but let’s leave the “funny” jokes for a less serious, life-defining moment, eh? Haribo gummy rings are brilliant when you’ve got a sweet tooth. Less so when your partner is expecting something big, sparkly and expensive.
Chances are you don’t like housework. Who really wants to wash the dishes or do the ironing when there are Netflix series to be binged and beautiful walks around our country to be had?
It’s also highly likely that your partner feels exactly the same way so presenting them with some Mr Muscle or new tea towels is unlikely to create the right kind of sparks…
Supermarket Brand Beer
Sometimes there’s nothing better than sharing a drink with your partner. Sitting back, relaxing and toasting another great year together can be the perfect end to a great Valentines Day.
Less so if all you’ve splurged out on is 12p cans of supermarket lager. Blow the cobwebs off that wallet or purse!
Hopefully these words of friendly warning will guide you in the right direction but, if you’re still searching for inspiration, why not treat your loved one to a night on the beautiful north coast of Northern Ireland?
When we fall down nature takes over and there’s nothing more breathtaking than the Causeway Coast in all her natural glory. Add to that the possibility of a romantic stroll on the beach, our fully stocked boutique gin bar and fresh, tasty local food and you’ve got a winner!
