Whether you are looking to impress with valentines messages for her or looking for valentine’s gifts for men or after valentines box idea this should serve as some inspiration for picking the best Valentine’s Day gift for your partner. Yes, Valentines is upon us once again (well in 13 days time for those that need a reminder) and as commercial, as it is I am not a believer on handing each other empty gifts for the sake of Valentine’s day. Although I will gladly accept those 5-carat diamond studs if they were coming in my direction in perfectly wrapped up Valentines day boxes. For me valentines days is simply a day to appreciate your partner’s company and if under a romantic setting then all the better. So, I thought what better way than to inspire you with 10 Valentines gift for lovers of food and travel. This post is not just for the men to take their ladies out to these places. I am an equal opportunity kinda girl so that means its also open for you ladies to treat your men to a getaway much like these below.
1. Spitbank Fort [Portsmouth UK] – Ever dreamed of staying on an Island, without forking out a price with far too many zeros on the price tag? We all have, well now you can. Spitbank Fort is a man made island on the Solent in Hamphire, that used to be a Fort used in the World War II. There are 3 of these on the Solent. One is privately owned and 2 have now been renovated into Luxury hotels. You get there buy boat from Gosport in Portsmouth, not before you sip wine in the departure lounge. This is truly an experience you and your partner would remember. They also offer day experience on the fort or you can have dinner and a stay overnight. Just imagine waking up to those views. More pictures on this experience can be found here on my post on Spitbank Fort here.
5. Luxury Dining With A View [London, UK] – On top of the world with your partner. Well, not exactly on top of the world but definitely on top of London. Sipping champagne with views of London in your own corner of the Shard is one way to spoil your partner but you have to be quick to get a table as this place as dates sell out fast! The Shard has many restaurants to choose from so you will have plenty of choices to spoil a loved one with fine dining and London views to boot. Even better is staying in and waking up to these views. This is of course by way of staying at the Shangri-la at the Shard. Luxurious rooms with river and city views and perfect service. Bonus points if you treat your loved one to breakfast in bed or in room service as you watch the city life below.
6. Witchery By The Castle Edinburgh [Edinburgh, Scotsland] – Scotland might have cold weather but it’s just right for getting cosy with your lover. Throw in some wine and great food in a great setting then you are well in for an interesting evening. The Witchery is a little hidden Gem in Edinburgh and hidden under the nose of Edinburgh castle. You simply must experience the food here. While you are in the city be sure to spit on the monolithian heart, more details and top 10 things to do in Edinburgh.
