What is the best way to say ‘I love you’? It’s the ‘L’ question we all start wondering about around Valentine’s Day. With 14th February looming, it’s time to make some plans with the special person in your life or pick up some presents to show your love for them.
Meal kits and food delivery services have really started wowing me during lockdown and many of them are offering special Valentine’s themed boxes to make the most romantic day of the year memorable. Maybe it’s time to impress your partner with your culinary skills or agree on something you can make together.
I’m also loving the heart decorations — especially the fairy lights — for bringing some romantic red and pink hues into the house. If there’s any excuse to add more red and pink into your decor, Valentine’s could be just the thing to upgrade your interiors.
Shopping for your galantine? I’ve popped some fashion and beauty recommendations on the list that I would absolutely love to receive on Valentine’s Day. For any fellas reading, these gifts will certainly go down well with your wife or girlfriend. Of course, I couldn’t leave off the Cupid’s classic gift of flowers, so I’ve suggested some fabulous florists too.
