Valentine’s date ideas for every type of couple

Chocolates, fragrance and jewellery are all very good choices for Valentine’s Day – they’re classics for a reason! But have you been trying to find something truly personal and unique, something that your loved one will never forget? That’s what Virgin Experience Days are all about! For men, women and couples of all ages, from the newly dating to the married for many years, there’s an Experience to suit everyone’s tastes and interests. These distinctive experiences can be shared together – what’s more romantic than that? Or give your partner the truly priceless gift of a day out with their best pal – think a spa day for the girls or day of sports-car racing for the blokes.

But there’s so much more on offer. There really is a fantastic range of choices – we’re sure you’ll find just the perfect once-in –a-lifetime gift for your sweetheart. We’ve broken the options down into 7 categories to help you find the most perfect, most personal gift for your Valentine. When you give someone the gift of a Virgin Experience Day, what you’re really giving them is a priceless memory they’ll cherish forever. And what could be better than that?

 

For the foodies

We’re not saying a home-cooked meal would go amiss. But what if, over dinner, you gifted your foodie with a Virgin gift voucher for an exceptional meal at a Michelin-starred restaurant, a cheese or chocolate-making workshop for two, or an artisan baking course? Whether you choose to share the adventure together, or send your partner off for an amazing experience with a friend, you’ll be absolutely spoiled for choice.

For those who love a drink

If the thought of the finest wines, artisan gins, or sparking champagne puts a twinkle in your loved one’s eyes, you’ve come to the right place. Virgin Experience Days offer an array of tastings, tours, and masterclasses for the mixologist in your life. Treat her to champagne tea for two at a chic boutique hotel, or send him off with his best mate to a whisky-blending course.  What better way to say, Cheers my dear!

For the adrenaline junkies

If a spa weekend sounds a little too sedate for you or your partner, then you must be true adrenaline junkies. Fortunately, Virgin has loads of exciting adventures for you to choose from. Hot air ballooning, glider rides, and tandem skydives are just some of the thrilling adventures on offer. Ticking some things off the bucket list is a great way to escape the humdrum of winter and to build lasting memories as a couple.

We all need to just get away sometimes.

Whether you want high-end luxury, a quiet country retreat, or a unique glamping experience, Virgin has just the thing. Plus there are loads of castles – what better way to show her she’s your queen?

For those who love to learn new skills

At age 88, the great artist and inventor signed these words on a sketch: “I am still learning.”  If this sounds like something your significant other might say, Virgin Experience Days has some absolutely wonderful learning adventures to choose from. Cooking, jewellery making, ceramics, calligraphy, or even indoor rock climbing – these days offer invaluable knowledge and hands-on learning that could become the basis for lifetime passions. Talk about a gift that keeps giving!

For the animal lover

“Must love dogs?” Or cats, birds, and sharks? If you and your loved one are animal lovers, did you know you have some amazing opportunities to see exotic animals right here in the UK? From a falconry experience to tea with tigers, to shark diving and a chance to photograph the “big cats”, Virgin offers some truly wild experiences at locations close to home. Or saddle up for a cowboy-style horseback riding excursion, complete with a BBQ feast at the end of the day. What a great way to say “Happy Valentine’s Day, pardner” to your partner!
