This year is a different kind of year in every aspect and Valentine’s Day is no exception, this does not mean you should skip it. In fact, quite the opposite. 

Rapid Agency is here with a guide to make your Valentine’s Day a special one!

Rules when choosing the perfect gift!

  • Do not overthink! You know your partner and know what they like so do not freak out
  • Set a budget! If you and your partner tend to overspend and neither of you know why, it is best to set a budget 
  • Be thoughtful – the simple yet thoughtful gifts are always the winners, keep that in mind
  • Have fun with your gift! Get them something they wouldn’t buy themselves

You can’t go wrong with a voucher

We know buying a voucher at the minute seems a little risky. Fortunately, most places have extended their expiration dates for their vouchers so you will still be able to use them when they reopen.

Why not treat them to a spa day with an Aura Day Spa voucher. Aura Day Spa is a spa clinic located on the Lisburn Road in Belfast. They specialise in top to toe indulgence that leaves you with a glow like never before.

Who doesn’t love a little pampering? Treat your loved one to a pre-lockdown make-over at Coco Rose Beauty. Coco Rose Beauty is a beauty, cosmetic and personal care salon based in the heart of Ballymena. Treat your significant other to a Coco Rose voucher and they can choose for themselves how they wish to be pampered.

Flowers

If your partner doesn’t have much of a sweet tooth but you are looking for a classic gift to show them you care, flowers are the perfect gift.

Picking their favourite flowers can be difficult. A few tips if you are not sure 

  1. Ask her friend or a family member 
  2. Think of her favourite colours
  3. Roses are your safety net.
