For me, Valentine’s day is a celebration of the love you have for someone special in your life; whether its your best friend who has kept you sane the last year and continuously made you smile with silly meme’s, or your beloved family who you may not have seen much of – if at all – in recent months, or your partner who no matter how many times you ask them not to, they still do that thing that really irritates you!
I have pulled together a list of ideas for you to treat your loved one(s) on February 14th. All budgets are catered for! Whether or not you can see them in person, there will be something you can find to treat them with; from food and drink sent straight to their door, to fun gift ideas!
