30 Creative Date Ideas

As you may know, I write blog posts on the spot without too much forward planning. So when the lovely people at Prestige Flowers contacted me to review this beautiful Valentines Day Bundle, I thought oooh hello blog post inspiration! Firstly though, let’s talk about these gorgeous roses. I admit I don’t really have a clue about looking after flowers, so I was relieved when I noticed that within the big box there was a handy little Flower Care guide book. Phew.

I need not have worried though. It was all pretty easy stuff, even for a bouquet beginner like myself.

Look at these gorgeous flowers! Yes, that’s right, there is a cute little bear and tasty chocs included in the bundle.

Flowers, chocolates and a cuddly toy! Shaun, my valentines day expectations are now pretty high, ha ha.

Simba protecting his new Prestige box castle from Zazu…

Zazu isn’t bothered as he has more important matters to attend to.

I was more interested in these little chocolates. By the way there isn’t that many in the box anymore.

As Valentines Day and Mothers Day are both fast approaching, you may be considering buying your special people a lovely bunch of flowers. Before you head to the shops, why not check out what Prestige Flowers have to offer and grab yourself a £5 discount using the code: VIP7711 at the checkout.

If you are stuck for Valentines Day date ideas, pick up a pretty bunch of flowers and do something creative with your favourite person. Here are a few of my ideas:

recreate your first date

go to the beach and write your names in the sand

play mini golf

pick a random destination on the map and cook a themed dinner together

go for a walk and take some cute photos

go bowling

have afternoon tea

make some sandwiches and go for a picnic

jump on the next train and spend the day in a random town

play some board games

have a couples massage

go to a pub quiz

have a two person house party with your favourite tunes 

watch a live band

visit the local market

go shopping and do the £10 gift challenge

create a home spa

watch a panto at the theatre

go to an amusement arcade

make your own pizzas

go to the zoo

paint / create / craft

have a boxset or movie marathon with all the snacks

go on a spontaneous road trip

go play tennis, badminton, pool, snooker, ping pong, darts, anything!

read a book together

fly a kite

look through old photos 

have a no technology evening

plan an adventure! 

Thanks so much for the beautiful flowers, Prestige! As you can see both myself and the cats loved them. Hope you enjoyed my post! Have you got anything special planned for Valentines Day or Mothers Day? I would love to hear your ideas!

    Lovely photos and great list. We haven’t made pizzas in ages and another date we like is movie night. We make an effort to have meals together at a romantically set table and ban phones. Haven’t done a pub quiz in forever so that would be good fun and fancy a bowling date now, so thank you for the ideas.
