I’m not a massive Valentine’s Day fan – February is all about the pancakes for me!!
Just in case you LOVE valentines, I’ve put together a little blog post to get you ahead of the game and getting the best valentines presents ever for your love 😍😍
How to say ‘I love you’ in more than words?
If your Manx then you NEED to get a card from island of social @islandofsocial – they’ll totally express your feelings in just the right way!
Or how about letting a ballon do the talking?! There’s some GORGEOUS balloons available from little big balloons –
Flowers are never a bad idea! And there’s so many beautiful options for flowers on the Isle of Man 😍
My faves are –
Flower girl – @flowergirl_iom http://www.flowergirl.im/
The flower studio – @flowerstudioiom http://www.flowerstudio.im/
And Robinson’s flowers – https://www.robinsonsflowers.im/?gclid=CjwKCAiA1ZDiBRAXEiwAIWyNCwrznVTHKy_HpC7fXlyl0Kga2XeH4nZIl_4PTIuRBKcFb_H0WDFQEhoCQVsQAvD_BwE
Why not treat your loved one to a voucher from their fave pampering palace? Everyone loves to be oameoered and if it’s free – even better!!
My fave places are –
Nails – nails at lime studio http://www.limestudio-iom.com/book-now/
Massage – libra massage https://m.facebook.com/urbansportsmassage/
Beauty salon – glamper van https://app.shedul.com/online_bookings/65082/link
Full on pamper day / spa – the Kings spa – http://www.kingspa.im/
lingerie is nice but hard to buy right!! And nothing says I love you more than a personalised snuggly jumper 😍 choose one of the gorgeous designs by Kate of stripe and shine or message her to design your own!! I love this lip stick print one – how valentinesy is that?! – @stripeandshine https://www.stripeandshine.com/
Want something a little different for your valentines meal out? We are so lucky in the Isle of Man to have the most amazing restaurants and food establishments but what about treating your loved one to a cooking experience instead! @cookshackiom is an amazing, fun and tasty experience and a voucher is perfect for a gift!
Or if you don’t want to cook then @noabakehouseiom and @thealpine_cafe are perfect relaxed venues to eat amazing food with your love ❤️
Is your loved one still in their ‘new year new me’ phase? Well done ruin it by buying chocolates, why not send them a fruit basket instead? Gorgeous options from Robinson’s available – https://www.robinsonsflowers.im/prod_cat/C_fruit-basket_12.html
Or how about making fitness fun for them by getting them a monthly pass to Active souls training sessions (I would only buy this if they themselves are wanting to get fit…….. you don’t want a black eye in return for your present!!) 😂😂
These sessions look great and perfect for making a work out a joy – https://www.activesouls.co.uk/blog
Or how about a romantic golf lesson for two with your very own golf pro!! I can highly recommend @charliesimpsonproshop Charlie Simpson – he’s a really lovely guy and you and yours will have a brill time that’s for sure!
How about a romantic break away in a cute little holiday cottage? @harrys_cottage in peel has all you need for a perfect break from reality with your love 😍 http://www.isleofmancottages.info/
and @islandescapesim has some AMAZING venues for rent too! Go and check out their local deals 😍
And of course the biggie – jewellery 💍 whether it’s the essential prop for popping the question or a pair of earrings you’re looking for then Element isle has you covered. We got our wedding bands from here and they are stunning 😍 really different and stunning – go have a look! – https://www.etsy.com/shop/clairepearse
So many wonderful things you can buy your Partner or wanna be partner. Shop local if you can coz it’s so special and different that way too!!
Hope I’ve given you some inspo and I’ll be back with loads of pancake ideas on the real day we should celebrate in February hahaha 😂😂😍😍❤️❤️
