Alternative Ideas For Valentine's Day

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, we got our heads together to figure out some quirky alternative options to spend the day with the one you love. So if you’re tired of candles, roses and heart-shaped chocolates, check out our suggestions below!

If they have a sweet tooth…

Forget the chocolates (they’ll only make you sick when you scoff the lot). Instead, try baking a cake together! Find a recipe you both love (these gorgeous red velvet cupcakes look like a good place to start) and have fun baking together.

If they like to get active…

Ditch the wine and get out and about – head to an ice rink for a chilly surprise, or pack a picnic and find a scenic cycle route (preferably leading somewhere warm and cosy)!

If they just want a chilled one…

Try cooking a nice meal and treating them to a relaxing night in, but with one caveat – they’re not allowed to lift a finger. You do the shop, set the menu, cook the meal and wash the dishes… Believe us, they’ll be grateful!

If they're a shopaholic...

Plan a day trip to their favourite shopping destination (near or far), and prepare yourself to be the designated bag-carrier for the day. Set time aside for coffees to take stock of what you've bought, and top it off with a personalised One4all Gift Card for a truly guilt-free shopping experience!

If they’re not a romantic…

Pick a vintage horror movie or an action-packed classic, snuggle up on the sofa and enjoy! Who needs romcoms when there are plenty of other movies to make your heart skip a beat?

If they live for Valentine’s Day…

Then maybe the alternative approach isn't the way to go! Candles, roses and chocolate might be the safest bet for the one who loves Valentine's, but don't let that stop you from branching out a little bit and personalising your gifts.

Of course, not all of us will be coupled up this Valentines! So, if you’re single…

Invite your friends over for a singles’ party night. Load up Netflix, share a bottle of wine and remember that while relationships can come and go, great friends are there for life.

Whatever you choose to do this Valentine's Day, have a great time!
