Some people love it, some people hate it but there’s no denying that Valentine’s Day is well on its way! Whether you’ll be spending this Valentine’s Day with your loved ones, your friends or if you’re simply planning on enjoying some time to yourself, today I’ll be sharing five fun things to do on Valentine’s Day.
I’ve also teamed up with Thorntons, who recently wrote an article on ‘How To Have A Happy Valentine’s Day‘, to give one of my readers the chance to win a yummy Valentine’s Day Box full of delicious Thorntons chocolate!
1. Bake something
I love baking cupcakes and cookies, especially at this time of year – and while I would normally do this alone, it’s so much fun to do this with your loved ones or your friends! I recently attempted to make some red, pink and white heart-shaped cookies which I found on YouTube, and they looked so cute! You can also bake something before Valentine’s Day itself to give to your loved ones as a gift.
2. Chocolate treasure hunt
Although we normally associate chocolate treasure hunts with Easter, you cannot go wrong with chocolate on Valentine’s Day! Who wouldn’t like to find a bunch of heart-shaped sweet treats hidden around their house?
3. Re-enact your first date
This one’s a great thing to do with your loved one on Valentine’s Day, and can be quite fun! My first date with my boyfriend was actually a trip to the Tower of London and to see Les Mis in London, and I’d love to do it all over again sometime!
4. Plan a weekend away
Check in to a hotel spa near you, or look for some cheap last minute flight deals online! Planning a fun weekend away can be a great way to spend Valentine’s Day, whether this is with your loved one or with your best girl friends.
5. Have a lazy day
If you love having lazy days, why not have a lazy Valentine’s Day? Fortunately, this year Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday – the perfect excuse for lazing around in your comfy PJs, ordering pizza and watching your favourite films on the TV!
Fancy winning some chocolate?
Thorntons are giving away a heart-shaped box full of Thortons classic chocolates to my readers. This giveaway is open to UK residents between 1st February and 7th February 2016. Good luck!
