This Valentine’s, me and my partner went away for the very first time! We’ve celebrated it, gone away near it, but never been away on the actual day ’til now. As we knew we’d be away, we decided to go (a bit) less crazy with the gifts. So here’s a look at what I got.
A Week Away in a Lodge
So this was a gift to each other, as we paid half each. We love the New Forest and we’ve been many times for Christmas and Easter breaks with my family.
We booked a new Zen lodge with a hot tub and it was super romantic and relaxing. The New Forest is not only one of my favourite places in the UK, but one of my favourite holiday destinations in general.
The day before Valentine’s, I went for a day of pampering at the on-site spa. I had a massage, facial and pedicure.
I love flowers and the brighter the better! I absolutely loved the ones my partner got from a cute little shop in the forest as they came in a beautiful vase that I’ve kept. He also bought me tulips to put on the dining table in the lodge.
Love Of My Life Card
We watched the Bohemian Rhapsody film last year and went to a special sing-a-long screening last month, so we’ve been listening to a lot of Queen songs the past few months. My partner often plays and sings ‘Love Of My Life’ to me, so he got this adorable Queen themed card with a cartoon Freddie Mercury on the front.
Fitbit Charge 3
I’d thought about getting a Fitbit for quite some time as I wanted to see how many steps I do per day, so I was delighted to get one as a gift. I’ve worn it non-stop and it’s been a great motivator for me to be extra active.
