Valentine's Day is fast approaching, but thanks to coronavirus we won't be dining out in fancy restaurants or relaxing in a luxurious hotel (sigh!). If you're feeling down about swapping your stilettos for slippers this year, why not simply postpone your romantic day or night out by purchasing a gift voucher to enjoy in the future instead? Many of Nottinghamshire's businesses are offering gift cards and vouchers - so you can treat that special someone and show some love to a local business in these trying times. Check out our ideas below.


Serene Spa Days

There's nothing like donning a fluffy white robe and stepping into a gorgeous spa to soothe away your stresses and spend some quality time with a loved one. Why not treat your partner to a voucher for the magnificent Eden Hall, some relaxing treatments at the Urban Escape  spa or a day at the stunning Ye Olde Bell (home to the UK's first detoxing HaloIR™ treatment)? We recommend checking their websites for the latest offers and packages.


Afternoon Tea

There's something undeniably romantic about that most quintessential of British traditions, Afternoon Tea, and thankfully Nottinghamshire has some fabulous options. You could purchase a voucher for the famous Byron’s Brasserie Afternoon Tea, the elegant and vintage Josephine’s Tea Lounge and Bistro or hidden gem Debbie Bryan - you and your loved one will be eating dainty sandwiches and sipping tea from a china cup before you know it. For a more unusual setting, why not get a voucher for an Afternoon Tea at The Tropical Butterfly House, where you can marvel at the stunning surroundings.


A romantic restaurant meal

We can’t go out and dine at our favourite restaurants right now, but it’s definitely something we’re all looking forward to. Why not plan your date night in advance by purchasing a voucher for the award-winning World Service, or plant-focused fine dining restaurant Alchemilla? Lovers of Indian food will be able to get their fix at Calcutta Club. You could even buy a voucher for Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem, the oldest inn in England, or take your dining to the next level with a voucher for a luxurious meal at the sky-high Restaurant Six at Trent Bridge.


Outdoor adventures

Looking for something a little out of the ordinary? If gazing into your loved one's eyes and sipping a glass of wine isn't really your style, then why not book a voucher for one of Nottinghamshire’s wild and wonderful adventure sports? Couples who love the great outdoors could book vouchers for experiences like paintballing and quads at Adrenalin Jungle, a Go Ape high ropes course, or even an exhilarating horse-ride with Derbyshire Pony Trekking or Coloured Cob Equestrian.


A night away together

For the ultimate Valentine's Day gift, a night away in a gorgeous hotel is sure to impress - and gives you the chance to spend even more quality time together. Why not purchase a gift voucher for a stay at the boutique Hart’s Hotel on the old ramparts of Nottingham Castle, the stylish St James Hotel or perhaps get away from it all with a woodland cabin break at Forest Holidays in Sherwood Forest?


Something different

Looking for something a little out of the ordinary to gift your loved one this year? Hanwell Wine Estate offer a wide range of gift vouchers, including their famous vineyard experience (tour, talk and tasting), their shop and their arts and crafts workshops. Check out the full range here. The Alchemist, based in the gothic grandeur of one of Nottingham's most magnificent listed buildings, offer a range of gift vouchers which can be redeemed against one of their famous cocktail masterclasses - the ideal gift for the cocktail connoisseur! 

Another non-traditional Valentine's Day gift idea is a voucher for nationally recognised independent cinema Broadway in Nottingham's quirky Hockley district. You can look forward to sinking into their famously comfortable seats and squabbling over the popcorn as you enjoy a film together. 


A Night Out

Nottingham Playhouse

Give a gift you know they'll love and try a voucher to see a show! If your special someone loves a night at the Theatre, we recommend a voucher to the Theatre Royal and Concert Hall. Hosting a range of touring shows and musical events, there is bound to be something for everyone. Or try a membership to Nottingham Playhouse and support their independent productions, often starring local talent.

For the music lover, a voucher to the Motorpoint Arena Nottingham is a no-brainer! But as the Arena also hosts a variety of events including comedy, talks, ice hockey and festivals, it is a fantastic opportunity for your loved one to try something new at a fantastic venue. If they are more into indie music, you can gift an annual membership at Metronome starting from as little as £35 a year. They offer a range of membership options to suit students and regular gig-goers with a whole host of benefits.
