With Valentine’s Day falling on a Thursday this year it means that John will be working and Erin will be at nursery so I’ll be spending the majority of the day on my own. So, when Buy A Gift got in touch to talk to us about their experiences perfect for Valentine’s Day we picked a three course meal at Prezzo to enjoy ourselves. My sister nicely offered to take Erin to the bowling alley in Norwich to play on the arcades while John and I shared our very first child free meal in two years! When you order an
Up until recently John and I have never been in a situation where we could go out together on our own without Erin. We don’t speak to the majority of John’s family and my family don’t live near us at all. Fortunately, my sister is living with us at the moment so we have had a bit more opportunity to have some time to ourselves. However, Valentine’s Day is not a thing for a husband and wife alone in our house but it’s a family affair. If you’re quite similar to us then there are plenty of ways that you
Now, if you’re spending Valentine’s Day with a loved one this year then a great way to do this is to curl up and watch a movie together.

Now that we have Erin to think about, bills to pay and nursery fees to find, we really don’t have much money to spend on each other or to go out and
Sometimes I think men can be really difficult to buy gifts for, no matter what the occasion. With Valentine’s Day being so close to Christmas ideas may be few and far between so here’s a few to give you some inspiration! John has a massive sweet tooth and he gets so excited whenever we find a big sweet shop somewhere. As soon as I saw the Love Lolly May Sweet Hamper on Giftpup.com I knew he would love it. The hamper comes absolutely filled to the brim with retro and romantic sweets from Flumps to Love Hearts to Drumstick Lollies!
It seems like only two minutes since it was Christmas but before you know it, Valentine’s Day will be here. For me, Valentine’s Day isn’t about finding the biggest or most extravagant present for your loved one but instead finding something that they will really love or something that will mean a lot to them. So, here are some ideas for Valentine’s Day Gifts for women. Really, this gift is a bit of a cheat as it’s really for a couple. People have been going mad for Beauty and the Beast related items since the release of the new film and
