Do you have any plans yet for Valentines Day? John and I do like to celebrate but it's very rare that we get to do something on the actual day. We tend to go out either before or after but I am hoping this year we can celebrate Valentines Day with all the other couples around the world on February 14th.

If I could choose where to go for Valentines Day I would choose either the theatre or the cinema. It's my favourite thing to do especially as a couple.

Remember This Day... 14th February

No comments
Happy Valentines Day. Today is the 14th February and traditionally on this day we celebrate with our loved ones and let them know just how much we love them. Typically roses are the flower of choice for your special someone or you can choose from a range of 'Valentines Day' gifts to show how much you care. 

Happy Valentines Day Image
The 14th February is not just a day of romance and love as it is also a day to remember some very important events, birthdays, deaths and even divorces, that have happened on this day. 

In 1929 the Valentines Massacre happened when 7 gangsters were killed.

In 1984 Torvill and Dean performed their Gold winning performance of the Bolero in the Winter Olympics. 

The 14th February is also the date of a few famous birthdays including Alan Parker, Tim Buckley, Stelios Haji-Ioannou and most recently Simon Pegg.

James Cook and Dolly the Sheep unfortunately died on this day back in 1779 and 2003.

Choosing to get married on Valentines Day is very romantic and there have been quite a few celebrity Valentines Day weddings over the years. 

In 1984 Elton John and Renate Blauel married in Sydney, Australia.

In 1991 Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid tied the knot. 

In the city of love Paris, Salma Hayek and Francois- Henri Pinault married in 2009.

Most recently in 2018 Amy Schumer and Chris Fischer married in Malibu. 

Valentines is not all about the romance for Robin Givens and Mike Tyson or Prince and Mayte Garcia as they were granted divorce on this day. 

No matter how you are spending your Valentines Day I hope you enjoy it.

If you are looking for some gift inspiration this Valentines Day then check out our Valentines Day Gift Guide.

Nanogen products
 Nanogen is a luxury hair thickening range which includes the famous Keratin Hair Fibres that create instant volume. The range also includes luxury shampoos, conditioners, a Root Boost and Hair Hydrator.

Raw Natural products
Raw Naturals is a men’s grooming range from Sweden.  It’s a natural, stylish range of body, skin and beard care products for men. Each formula combines caring ingredients of vegetable origin with natural oils from oats, coconut and olives, as well as natural honey extracts.

Coole Swan
Coole Swan gift set features a 700ml bottle of Coole Swan premium Irish cream liqueur along with two beautifully crafted glasses exclusively available to purchase from John Lewis. Why not make a Valentines cocktail together featuring a Coole Swan recipe

Mermaid Pink Gin
Perfectly balanced, subtle yet vibrant, Mermaid Pink is less sweet than most pink gins and has no added sugar. Distilled using strawberries from the island’s Arreton Valley - a rich and fertile place that receives some of the best sunshine levels in the UK - the gin has a gentle pink hue. To create it, the strawberries are steeped in the distillery’s signature gin for four days. Then, half is removed to be distilled and eventually added back to the remaining infusion - lending the gin a refreshing and intensely aromatic, strawberry flavour.

Guylian Chocolate
Made using only the finest, hand selected Mediterranean hazelnuts, which are roasted and caramelised to perfection before being blended with premium Belgian chocolate, Guylian’s famous Sea Shell chocolates are always a delight, and are sure to make life sweet for your loved one.

Disney planet pots
If flowers are not your thing then these cute artificial potted plants from Disney Store will be the perfect gift for you. The quirky designs features a plastic plant inside a pot inspired by Disney characters.

Princess PJs
In my opinion you can't go wrong with Pyjamas and they make a cute gift for Valentines Day. These Real Life Princess Disney Princess Jasmine PJ's will have you feeling like royalty. 

Odeon Gift Card
If you have a loved one that is impossible to buy for then why not treat them to a gift card. A cinema voucher is not only the perfect gift but it also doubles up as a date night too.

The Ultimate Gift Card is also a great gift as it can be spent in lots of retailers including JD Sports. 

Red Letter days Voucher
Red Letter Days have a huge range of experiences to choose from so no matter what your loved ones interests are you will find something they will enjoy.

Do you have any plans for this Valentines Day?
