Whether it’s a cosy night in or a big night out, here’s everything you need for the perfect valentine’s date…
Date Night In
If you’re not really into the whole Valentine’s thing and you’d much prefer a night at home, you can still make an effort to make it a little more special than your usual night in. Set the mood – put on a fire, light a few candles and maybe a few cute valentine’s decorations. Tiger have literally hundred of cute Valentine’s products to decorate your love shack, they even have heart printed toilet roll! There’s 25% off selected valentine’s Yankee Candles in McGorisk’s at the moment that will really set the mood.
If you’re not heading out, you still both deserve the night of from cooking. M&S always do a great Dine In Deal for Valentines, complete with wine, so check that out from Thursday!
Grab a couple of DVDs from Golden Discs, it doesn’t have to be something soppy like the Notebook, The Martian is a new release and it’s very good, it’s got Matt Damon and it’s set in space so its winner all round!
You can’t watch a movie without treats. For the night that’s in it, Tiger have a great selection of Valentine’s sweets for you and your sweetheart; Heart shaped marshmallow, candy floss and chocolate of course.
If you want to go all out you can even make breakfast in bed the following morning, complete with heart shaped eggs! Heart shaped frying pan, €1.50 in Eurogiant
Date Night Out
Book in good time, it’s Valentine’s weekend, places book up really fast! The Fatted Calf are open on Sunday 14th, especially for valentine’s but spaces are limited, so hurry up!
Before the big date, how about buying them something to wear for it – a pair of shoes she’s had her eye on or a new shirt from his favourite brand. They’ll be seriously impressed because it shows you have been paying attention.(The gorgeous red dress we found is from Born)
If you really haven’t been paying attention, then how about an Athlone Towncentre gift card so they can get their hair done in Boston Belle or Boston Barbers, or they can pick up something nice to wear.
If you’re picking her up, or even if you live together, surprise her with some old school romance by bringing flowers or a single rose – M&S have a lovely selection!
Give them their gift before you go so you don’t have to be carrying it around all night. Perfume or aftershave might be a nice choice because they can open it and wear it that night too. McGorisks have 50% off selected fragrances and you can get 20% off your second item in The Perfume Shop right now too.
If you wan to get them something extra special, Fields Jewellers have the most amazing gifts for men and women, including diamond engagement rings, for every budget, and Bernard John Jewellers stock the popular Pandora and Alex and Ani collections.
