Now that winter wonderland is shut and the cold weather settles in even more, let’s talk about ways to spend time together and keep each other warm for everyone’s favourite commercial holiday, Valentines day. Below I list the top things to do on valentines day and thoughtful presents/experiences you can buy.

Make a photo book with Snapfish

Snapfish is one of the world’s largest companies for Online Photo Printing & personalised Photo Gifts. I’ve made a photobook with Snapfish and I was impressed with the pristine quality. What better way is there to say I love you or at least I’m thinking about you than making a personalised gift. Check out their reviews here.

Spa day/Weekend

Why not leave the stresses of London behind you and spend a few hours of even nights at a spa hotel. For spa weekends and spa days I would check,, the hotel website and TripAdvisor to ensure you’re getting the best deal. To ensure you don’t limit yourself, there are spas, all around the country so look far and wide, but don’t forget to incorporate travel costs and use promo codes.

Want Breathtaking views of London?

  • The Shard – The Shard is the tallest building in the UK and you can see most of London. It has three restaurants and one hotel: Aqua Shard, Oblix and Hutong and the Shangri- La
    1. I had cuttlefish for the first time at Hutong— it was delicious but very expensive though (as expected) £51 for a set menu with several different items that we couldn’t finish, bottled water and non-alcoholic cocktails.
  • Stay at the Novotel London Canary Wharf.
    1. I loved this hotel. I stayed in the first week of November 2017 and it was amazing, the views were stunning, I could see the shard, the cheesegrater building, the gherkin and all the canary wharf banks from my room and while eating at their 37th floor restaurant Bokan — London is magical at night.
      Word of warning, they charge a £50 deposit per person, per night, so be prepared. The hotel has several meeting rooms, a pool, sauna and fitness centre.
  • Sky Garden
  • Oxo Tower
  • Vertigo 42, A stylish resevations only bar in the city of London
  • Madison Rooftop Bar
  • Coppa Club, Tower Bridge
