Valentine's Day Starts with Flowers

How to plan the perfect Valentine’s Day (version Omicron). It doesn't matter whether you have been a couple for a week or a decade, planning the perfect Valentine’s Day experience should always start with flowers!

Yes, we’re biased, but hear us out…

Whether you get flowers delivered a couple of days ahead of the big day (super important to arrange this ahead of Valentine’s Day to ensure that your flowers are of the best quality and that delivery is guaranteed) or you order ahead and have a flower arrangement ready for pick up on the day, you can’t go wrong with a bouquet of flowers to show your love.

Valentine’s Day - Planning Your Date

Planning the perfect date for Valentine’s Day is stressful! Some say it is even more stressful than planning a first date, and when you add the additional stress of Covid-19 restrictions that are in place at some venues, you have to plan ahead and get a little creative with your ideas for this special day.

V-Day Restaurants - Yes or No?

“Would you like the four-course Sweetheart’s Menu, or the eight-course Eternal Love?”

If you have not booked by mid-January, you may struggle to get a table at a popular restaurant. Many restaurants have specific time slots for meals on Valentine’s Day, so be aware that you might not be able to have a lingering long meal either. If food is the way to your true love’s heart, then consider a joint cooking class as an alternative to the Valentine’s Day crush at a restaurant.

What Can You Do on Valentine’s Day Besides Dinner?

Avoid the Netflix and takeout cliche or a prix-fixe dinner menu and plan something special and different for your love. A creative take on the cooking class idea is a Paint & Sip class. Get together with your love, or your friends this V-Day and join a paint-and-sip class where you get to be creative while sipping on your favorite cocktails. This is a great virtual date idea if you’re running into Covid-19 restrictions in your area.

Skating - ice or roller, take your pick. Head to your local rink and skate your way into love. More than likely that your local skating rink with have a themed evening for V-Day.

If you have been together for a while, what about a tour of your favorite places. It’s a great way to kindle the romance and relive some of the special memories while creating a new one for Valentine’s Day.

Hotel stay for two - if you want to splash out on love this year, and stay Covid-safe book a romantic weekend away at a cosy B & B or urban stay at a luxury hotel. With Valentine’s Day falling on Monday in 2022, you will have the whole weekend free for romance.

Whatever activity you choose for Valentine's Day weekend on 2022, whether you're staying in or going out, whether you're celebrating two decades or two weeks, whether you're celebrating Galentine's Day with friends, or just flying solo... EVERYTHING is more special with flowers!
