With everything closed from cinemas to restaurants, it's tough to come up with great date night ideas. SO it's your cupid Pirates to the rescue. Check out our alternate romantic ideas that can be enjoyed from home. Many of these are Valentines themed, however, if you are purchasing for the 14th, please take note of delivery times. If you're not into all that Valentines stuff, the following can be saved for a spontaneous lockdown date night.
For the foodies:
Bring the bistro to your kitchen with this 2 course meal idea. Thanks to The MeatBox, you'll receive a dry 21-day aged 18oz T-bone steak, a 6oz fillet steak, a peppercorn sauce and even dessert with 2 chocolate and salted caramel tarts! The perfect romantic meal in! All this for £30, saving £10! Please note: delivery isn't included and costs an additional £5.95
For the wine lovers:
We're all mourning the continued closure of the bars and pubs... so why not sit out the wait at home and bring the bar to you? Virgin Wines are offering a crate of 6 beautifully crafted wines from around the world from as little as £5.49 per bottle! That's a saving of 50%!! Oh, and one other thing... there's free delivery straight to your doorstep.
Add a little bit of sparkle:
Get your skates on Pirates and order this amazing value Prosecco and chocolate hamper we've found so it arrives for a designated date night (be it on the 14th or not). You get two bottles of bubbly and some chocolate truffles, with delivery included, for £23.99*, saving more than £20 on the regular price. Valentine's Day not your thing? That's ok as the vouchers are valid until June so can be saved for another occasion.
