Valentines Dates

Valentines day isn’t usually a day I celebrate with my Fiancé. However, on the odd occasion after 6 1/2 years we have slightly celebrated it.

Here’s a few ideas of dates indoors and outdoors you may enjoy!

  • Romantic indoor picnic – Plenty of snacks, popcorn etc and maybe even a chocolate or cheese fondue!
  • Movie Night – if you have the props.. a cuddle fort may be fun! Lots of snacks and marathons of your favourite films.
  • Valentine’s Meal – pick a fancy restaurant or one you’ve never tried before.
  • Spa Day – A relaxing spa day together could be perfect if you both need to unwind.
  • Weekend Away – a luxury weekend away in a lodge with a hot tub, your favourite place or a new adventure for you both.
  • Activity Day – Bowling, Mini golf, Segway, Rock Climbing.

Manchester Ice Village

Over the Christmas period I bought tickets for the Manchester Ice Village.

It’s a little village where you can prebook for ice-skating and the ice village. They have some small stalls for Bratwurst and boozy hot chocolates, like a traditional Christmas Market.

The ice cavern which we had booked for, £9pp, was a tent with a temperature of -10! You really need that boozy hot chocolate when you come back out!

You can take your time walking through looking at all of the sculptures people had made. There were 12 different nods to Manchester within ice carvings for you to find throughout.

It’s one of the cutest places I’ve been to and would 100% recommend it to families and couples.
