3 Steps to Plan an Unforgettable Date

Celebrating Valentine's Day is a wonderful opportunity to demonstrate your love and appreciation for your partner. However, creating an unforgettable experience may seem like a daunting task. Here are three steps to help you arrange a remarkable day for this special celebration.

1. Craft a Romantic Dinner at Home

Nothing expresses love quite like food, especially when it is prepared with care by someone close to you. So why not prepare some of your partner's favourite dishes? Set the right ambiance with candles and soft music playing in the background, ensuring that everything is arranged perfectly. Remember, presentation can be just as important as taste.

2. Embark on an Outdoor Adventure Together

If both you and your partner have adventurous spirits, consider spending time outdoors. Engaging in a shared experience such as hiking or cycling can strengthen your bond while creating lasting memories. Take lots of photos when you’re out on your Valentine’s adventure, it will help you to hold onto the memories for even longer, giving you something to look back on on quieter days. Our personalised photo keyrings are the perfect way to capture the memories of days spent together, and would double as a unique gift idea for next Valentine’s Day too!

3. Add Personal Touches With Custom Gifts

Giving gifts has long been a part of Valentine's Day celebrations, but adding a personal touch to these presents adds an extra layer of thoughtfulness. We have a huge selection of personalised Valentine’s Day gifts and keepsakes at Create Gift Love, from matching couples’ leather keyring sets to wooden coasters engraved with the day you met, and coordinate keepsakes which celebrate a significant place in your relationship.


Master the Art of Making a Special Meal

Facing the prospect of creating an unforgettable Valentine's Day meal can be intimidating, but it's actually quite simple to pull off. Here are some strategies you can adopt to avoid common pitfalls and ensure a memorable dining experience.

1. Discover the Pleasure of Cooking Together

Wondering how to transform kitchen duties into moments of connection? Or how to get your partner excited about joining in on cooking? The first step is making cooking together fun: an enjoyable, easy-to-repeat activity that strengthens your bond over time. These recipes designed for couples could be a good starting point. A well-planned candlelit dinner with their favourite dishes is not just food, it’s a representation of your thought, care and consideration.

2. Bring Their Favourite Restaurant Home

To make sure you're adding value to your special day, sometimes ordering in might be better than homemade. And yes, this option works perfectly fine too. You're absolutely capable of transforming takeaways into romantic meals at home. Just order from their favourite restaurant and focus more on setting up a cosy ambience with candles and flowers – turning ordinary into extraordinary.

3. Top It Off With Thoughtful Personalised Gifts

The cherry on top after all these efforts would undoubtedly be a thoughtful gift, chosen especially for your partner. But what makes one gift stand out among others?

  1. Add personal touches like engravings or custom messages that speak directly to them.
  2. Sourcing unique items like our bespoke wooden keepsakes or personalised leather gifts.
  3. Avoid clichéd presents; think outside-the-box when selecting Valentine’s presents.

Your choice will reflect the thoughtfulness behind it – elevating their overall Valentine’s Day experience beyond expectations.


Enjoy Quality Time Together

Quality time together is a priceless gift, especially on Valentine's Day. It goes beyond the physical gifts and focuses more on creating lasting memories. Ditching distractions for some good old-fashioned quality time can be a game-changer in your relationship. Switch off those phones, close the laptops, and give each other undivided attention.

A World of Shared Activities

Pick activities that both of you enjoy or venture into something new - there are no rules. Cooking up a storm at home, going for a long romantic walk, or even just cuddling up together with your favourite books could create moments to treasure forever. And remember: these moments aren't about perfection but rather about quality time and genuine interaction between two people who care deeply for one another.

The Magic of Personalised Gifts

In addition to shared experiences, thoughtful personalised gifts can add that unique touch to your special day. These presents show how much thought and effort you've put into finding something tailor-made for them. We have everything from engraved wooden photo frames capturing unforgettable moments to custom keyrings signifying personal milestones. Our carefully curated collection has been designed to be a blank canvas for your memories and experiences – no two pieces are the same because no two relationships are the same. We are here to help you create something special that tells your unique story.


Send Flowers & Cards: A Classic Valentine's Gesture

Aiming to express your affection this Valentine's Day? Look no further than the time-honoured combination of flowers and cards. They're not just symbols of love, but also a way to personalise your emotions.

Choosing Your Blooms Wisely

Did you know that each flower speaks its own language? Red roses convey deep passion, while pink ones whisper admiration and appreciation. This guide on rose meanings will help you select the perfect bouquet that reflects your heart's sentiments.

Making It Extra Special

To make these traditional gifts truly unforgettable, think creatively. Surprise deliveries at work or treasure hunts leading up to them at home can add an exciting twist. You could even add a personal surprise amongst the bouquet, like our photo bouquet charms, engraved with a personalised message. A beautiful keepsake to treasure long after the flowers have wilted.

  • An unforgettable date is another great way to celebrate the day of love.
  • Cooking or ordering in a meal adds an intimate touch to your celebrations.
