Your Perfect, Inspirational Guide to Valentines Day

Struggling for something to do this Valentines Day? We get it! If you’ve been with your loved one for a while, sometimes it can be quite the task to come up with something innovative – even if it is only for one day! 

Thankfully for you, you needn’t look no further as our team at Affinity have come up with a few simple ways to treat your loved one this Valentines Day, without having to break the bank! 

Dinner for Two

Make dinner for two a fun experience this Valentines Day and cook your favourite dishes at home with a great selection of kitchen and tableware from our fantastic Procook and Denby Clearance stores.  Even if you’re not the cooking type, sometimes ordering a bottle of wine and a take out is a great way to get around treating your other half!

Failing that, why not set up a mini cocktail master class at home? Neither of you need be an expert when it comes to  creating the perfect cocktail, it can simply be a great bit of fun for you and your partner to experiment with. After all, they do say tequila makes you happy!

Soothing Home Spa

Sometimes all your partner needs is a little TLC and what better way to sooth the soul than a nice candlelit bath, a glass of bubbly – and if you’re feeling really smooth – maybe a massage with Holland & Barrett’s jojoba oil?
