Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and although we may not be able to indulge in a romantic meal in our favourite restaurant or spend a night on the tiles with the girls, there are still plenty of ways to make February 14th a special day full of love. Here are some ideas to make your Valentines Day memorable this year.

DIY Dining Sets 

As GB Shaw said, “There is no love sincerer than the love of food” and I wholeheartedly agree. We may not be able to attend a restaurant but we can do our best to create an authentic dining experience at home with these DIY dining sets. This could be a fun activity to do with the girls or your partner while also supporting local Galway businesses.

Plant a Bloomer

Surprise your loved ones with a nature inspired Valentines gift this year. This gorgeous little heart is made from unique seed paper. Handcrafted from recycled materials, the paper contains inclusions of petals and wildflower seeds. When ‘planted’ the paper breaks down into the soil – and the seeds germinate to produce beautiful seedlings! Ideal as a token of love or friendship. A little gift packed with love and thought.
