I thought I’d put together a few unique gift ideas for Valentine’s Day. I’ve included options for couples and male/female friendly gifts for that special someone in your life!
Living Social are offering a spa day with a treatment from £39 Nationwide (UK). Spa with treatment for one (£39, or 2 £78)
Also on offer is a Brewery Tour and tasting day for 2 for only £12. This is in Durham, which is also a lovely old town where you can hire rowing boats or visit the cathedral. Brewery and tasting tour.
You can also buy your own kits from The Range for £19.99 to have a go at making your own beer/wine/cider.
If you’re more of a foodie and fancy a gorgeous meal served in an unusual way then visit Viva Brazil, they are offering a 2-4-1 discount on a Tastecard which means two people can eat at their full rodizio for less! Tastecard have a 90 day trial that you can try out for £1.
Another glorious day at the spa is Slaley Hall in Northumberland where you can use spa facilities with coffee and Danish pastries for 2 for only £25. This also gives you 20% off treatment prices. Ahhh luxury! Spa day with coffee and pastries
If you’re looking for somewhere to stay near to Slaley hall then you can hire a caravan from a small, peaceful site nestled in Slaley forest called Springhouse country park. This is an also an excellent base to explore Northumberland and has a straight road to Carlisle making it easy access to the Lake District. I recommend having a short drive into Hexham and Corbridge while you’re there, they’re such gorgeous country towns.
If your partner is a thrill seeker why not book them something memorable? A flying lesson is something out of the ordinary that they’ll never forget. With a flying taster session starting from £69 from Durham Aerosports the sky really is the limit!
A little bit of luxury for almost half the price with boots offer of Sanctuary spa with love gift set. A bargain at £22!
If you’d like a nice romantic candle lit night in then morrisons are offering a Valentine’s meal deal for two, which includes: 1 Main, 2 Sides and 1 Dessert & 1 Wine or Chocolates for £15.00.
How about a day handling cute little owls? For those animal lovers in your life, go for Owl Handling day rom £19 for a 2 hour handling experience.
You could also visit Alnwick castle and gardens to see where Harry Potter was filmed (speaking of owls!).
Maybe a 2-3 night glamping experience sounds like something dreams are made of? For £49 you can do just that! Northumberland wigwam glamping
Last, but not least how about a spot of afternoon tea? At the Royal hotel in Whitley Bay you can have tea by the sea for only £15! Afternoon tea for two. Finished off with a stroll on our beautiful coastline. Perfect!
