A special day for every couple, Valentine’s Day this year needn’t follow the generic pattern of buying roses, weird socks and dinner at whichever restaurant has a reservation left. Why not do something unique and get some Valentine’s gifts that you’ll always remember.


First up is this great little Travelogue Holiday Memories Set – a journal that includes 64 pages of high quality paper, holiday tips and advice and 8 miniature scratch maps. The tick to this gift is that it is only the start. Why not pick up some cheap flights and spend the time together and record your memories to hold onto forever.

If going abroad isn’t your thing, or a bit beyond your post-Christmas budget, then why not take a short trip on the motorway to beautiful Oxford and try out this Oxford River Experience for two:


Head down the most attractive stretch of the Thames (or Isis, if you’re a local) and get a great view of Oxford, one of the country’s most beautiful and picturesque towns. You’ll follow a route that takes you past the University of Oxfords famous regatta course, under Folly Bridge and past Christchurch College and the Oxford rowing houses. This is one of the most unique ways to find out about the history of the town and see the city from a special perspective.

Finally if travelling to Oxford doesn’t seem like your thing, then why not spend the evening drinking the aperitif of all great lovers: wine.


By the end of one of our Wine Tasting Evenings you’ll find yourself transformed into a connoisseur. Settle down in a relaxed atmosphere and learn everything you could ever want to know about wine, with no prior experience needed. Learn to differentiate your Chianti from your decanter in a friendly and welcoming environment.

Whatever you decide to get for this Valentine’s Day, be it some gifts or experience days, make sure you do something you’ll always remember.
