Whether you are celebrating Valentine’s Day or Galentine’s Day, Rapid Agency has a few date ideas for you and your Valentine.
Valentine’s Day Activities
Even though we are in lockdown you can still make your Valentine’s Day special, here are some fun activities you can do… they also won’t break the bank £££
Take a romantic stroll
I know it feels like all we are doing these days is walking but what is more romantic than a stroll with your loved one surrounded by trees and nature, or pretty views of Belfast from the top of Cavehill.
Here are some Northern Ireland walks that you will not regret (just make sure you bring your raincoat)
- Belfast Castle
- Black Mountain
- Stormont Estate
- Lady Dixon Park
- Hazelbank Park
- Monkstown Wood
- Carnmoney Hill
- Antrim Loughshore
- Randalstown Forest
- Tardree Forest Walk
More Fun Activities
If going for a walk isn’t really your thing, or you are just fed-up walking… here are some more fun filled activities for you and your significant other.
Get your apron on and show off baking and decorating skills with your version of the Bake Off. The winner can pick the movie!
If you and your partner are the competitive type, why not challenge each other to a ‘games night’. Be careful not to get too competitive… it may not end well.
If enjoying nature appeals to you but walking doesn’t, why not go for a picnic? We know it is cold outside, but it is nothing a big warm blanket and a large flask of hot chocolate couldn’t fix!
Build A Movie Fort
Throw it back to your childhood and transform your living room into a fort fit for two! Add your favourite movie, snacks and a bottle of wine and there you have it… the perfect date!
Most importantly… The Food
A Valentines date night is not complete without tasty food and of course we are here to help with that too!
If you see yourself as the next Gordan Ramsey, then why not cook a delicious meal from many of Belfast restaurant’s ‘cooking at home’ menus.
Coppi Belfast has an ‘At Home with Coppi’ menu. Each menu is a three course meal offering a choice of your favorite Coppi classic dishes. Coppi prepare and cook everything for you, meaning you simply have to reheat at home!
Buba Belfast are offering a ‘Valentines at Home with Buba’. Similar to Coppi, they prepare and cook it all, so you simply reheat. What could go wrong?
SHU on the Lisburn Road are also offering a cooking from home menu, ‘SHU at Home’ brings you a delicious dining treat by recreating that restaurant experience at your own dining table. SHU’s meals come fully prepared ready for the oven or pan meaning you can enjoy the experience without any hassle.
Marks and Spencer’s Valentine’s Deal is a fuss-free and next-level-tasty dine for 2 meal deal. With a choice of starters, main courses, desserts and wine all for £20, you can’t go wrong!
…If snacking is more what you had in mind
Chocoa Chocolate has the perfect Fondue package for your sweet tooth! Chocoa’s chocolate fondue set, packaged up in a beautiful rose gold box, includes some very tasty treats for two. What’s more romantic than preparing a little liquid velvet, and dip dip dip all those yummy treats!
Or for a savoury option…
Sawers Belfast have put together a ‘Valentine’s Lockdown Box’ for all the cheeseboard lovers. The box includes a delicious selection of the finest Northern Irish cheese with olives, oatcakes, an array of chutneys and a free bottle of wine.
If these options haven’t got your mouth watering, I’m not sure what will.
