One of the most romantic days of the year is just a week away. If you’re still unsure of what’s really going to float their balloon, here’s our Valentine’s Day 2018 UK guide – just call us Cupid.

Valentine’s Day Gifts for Him

It’s easy to think practical and go for that aftershave he’s run out of or a new pair of jeans, but why not go a bit more out there with something that’s really going to blow him away?

Here are our top three unique choices:

  • Rock Climbing in Yorkshire
    • There are plenty of rock climbing courses across the UK (we’re just picking Yorkshire as it’s one of our favourite counties – plus you could treat yourself to a weekend away!). He’ll be able to learn a new skill and take in views across the stunning Yorkshire Dales at the same time.
  • Go See a Comedian on Tour
    • Find a comedian near you for a night of laughter or buy tickets to go see his favourite comedian further on in the year. A great way to forget about the daily grind and fun thing to do in the evening.
  • Personalised Pasty
    • Yep, we know the traditional saying is all about roses being red, and while you may think chocolates are slightly more luxurious, it is a well-known statement that a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, so why not personalise his favourite snack?

Valentine’s Day Gifts for Her:

While diamonds are lovely, for the best, you’re talking a lot of money. Again, flowers and chocolates are cute, but for a unique and unforgettable Valentine’s Day gift for her, it has to be an adventure and an experience she’ll never forget…

  • Flying Experience
    • For a unique Valentine’s Day gift and thing to do in the Lake District, why not take to the skies on a Gyrocopter Trial Flight? This is a great one to tick off her bucket list, or for a more serene flight, there’s, of course, our hot air balloon ride gift packages where you can take to the skies together.
  • Animal Experience Day
    • Why not go shark diving together at an aquarium near you? Or, for a more cuddly encounter, there’s sure to be a meerkat experience near you. Here at Virgin Balloon Flights HQ in Telford, we work closely with Exotic Zoo – a not-for-profit animal centre that offers a wide range of animal experience days.
  • Book a Short Break
    • If all else fails, you can never go wrong with a getaway. From stunning Devon, to incredible Scotland - beautiful Britain really does have so much to offer.
