Love is in the air at The Great Northern with inspired Valentine’s ideas

From a romantic Spanish feast or spicy takeaway to chocolate gifts and virtual yoga, Great Northern has you covered

A romantic dinner out is off the cards. But if you’re looking for inspired ways to celebrate this Valentine’s Day, Great Northern has got you covered.

All you need is love… but chocolate helps, too. And who wouldn’t go weak at the knees for Dormouse Chocolate’s deliciously indulgent bars of chocolatey goodness?

With an award-winning range, there’s something for everyone.

And they’re even selling Insta-worthy chocolate ‘anatomical hearts’ for an extra dose of romance, available for £9.50.

Evuna has launched a brand-new service, Evuna at Home, so you can treat yourselves to a romantic, candlelit Spanish feast without the stress of cooking.

Prepared fresh by its talented chefs for you, it’s all simple to heat and finish in your kitchen.

The full tasting menu includes hams, cheeses and chorizo, with veggie options too, including a choice of tapas and a classic paella.

Prices start at £50 for two, or £60 with a bottle of your favourite Evuna wine. Click here to see the full menu and details.

Looking to sweeten up your day even more? It’s hard not to fall head over heels with Alex’s Bakery and its tempting brownie and blondie boxes.

And the love affair doesn’t stop there, as it also has a delicious selection of cupcakes and some Valentine’s themed sweet treats to really get you in the mood.

Single this Valentine’s Day? Don’t let that stop you.

Now is the perfect time to treat yourself to a bit of self care and love – and what better way to do it than by making the most of a great offer from The Life Centre, which is offering a whole month of virtual yoga for just £39, or drop in for £5.

Light some candles, get on your mat and spend some time with the most important person in your life – you!

Nothing beats a cosy date night in with a takeaway and a good old-fashioned rom-com.

So why not order some feel-good food from Siam Smiles, open for delivery and takeaway Thursday – Sunday, and curl up with your favourite?

Or grab yourself some comfort food from Almost Famous, pour yourself a glass of something large and red, and get stuck in to all three Bridget Jones films. We’re not judging.
