It’s February already, which can mean only one thing… Don’t tell me you’ve forgotten?! Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, so if you haven’t got anything planned already, you need to come up with something big. Something unforgettable. Something they’ll LOVE. Lucky for you, I’ve got a few options that might just help. Take a look below and choose the ultimate Valentine’s Day experience for your other half.
For her: a spa break
Now, I don’t want to stereotype, but men? You do tend to leave gift-buying until the last minute. Do things differently this year and get her something that she’ll really enjoy. How would she like the idea of being pampered from head to toe on a relaxing spa break? She’ll be able to pick a spa of her choosing at a time and date that suits her best, so she can really look forward to the whole experience. And all you need to do is buy a Thomas Cook Gift Card for her to use to book. Simple.
There’s a choice of different treatments to go for; everything from just a facial or a manicure, to a full body massage. It’s entirely her choice. And what’s more? Spa break packages include accommodation, so your gift becomes a full weekend away. They often also include a meal and use of the on-site leisure facilities such as the pool, steam room, sauna and Jacuzzi too. So here’s hoping she asks you to go along with her!
For him: a sports break
I know that sometimes, just sometimes, us girls love to be romantic. Especially around Valentine’s Day. But, unfortunately for us, not all guys are as into flowers, chocolates and soppy films as we are. (Although, all the more chocolate for us, right?) Instead, why not treat your man to a sports break that he’ll really love? Whether he wants nothing more than to see his favourite team score the winning goal at the football; or get his adrenaline pumping at a Formula One Grand Prix; or maybe take his seat at Centre Court to watch the Wimbledon Grand Slam, he can choose an experience he’ll never forget.
The easiest way for your other half to pick where he wants to go is for you to buy him a Thomas Cook Gift Card. With that, the package will also include a night at a hotel and not just the event itself. He’ll even be able to add on some special extras too, like a stadium tour or a copy of the official match programme. If there’s one thing for sure, he’ll definitely be winning with this Valentine’s Day gift!
For something different: theatre breaks
If a spa break or a sports break just isn’t quite the right gift for the special someone in your life, why not go for a theatre break instead? When it comes to London’s West End, there’s a show to suit everybody, no matter what their taste. Your other half doesn’t have to be a massive Disney fan to appreciate the incredible spectacle that is The Lion King, but maybe they’d prefer the fast-paced antics of School of Rock instead? Or maybe they want to see one of the classics such as the Phantom of the Opera or Les Misérables? Whatever they like, they’ll find it all at the West End.
For the ultimate weekend away, buy your partner a Thomas Cook Gift Card and, that way, the theatre break package will include a night in a swanky hotel too. Then, to make it really special, you could wine them and dine them while you’re in the Big Smoke or add a tour of a popular London tourist attraction to your package as well. Now, that’ll be a Valentine’s Day to remember.
What experience will you be buying your Valentine with a Thomas Cook Gift Card? Let me know in the comments below.
Thomas Cook Gift Cards can be bought either online or instore; as a physical Gift Card or an eGift Card. You’ll get to choose the design you want and, of course, how much you’d like to put on there. (That can be anything between £10 and £5,000, by the way.) When you’ve gifted it to your other half, they can just pop into their nearest Thomas Cook store and choose their dream experience. It really is as simple as that.
