You can still treat your special someone to a special something this Sunday. Whether you're celebrating love with a significant other or your best mates, here's your guide to Valentine's Day in lockdown.
Flowers from: Dottie's Flower Club
Look no further than Dottie's to get your flower fix. From traditional bouquets to sunny bohemian bunches, Dottie and her team have you covered. They'll make you a bespoke bouquet to make it just your cuppa tea - guaranteed to make your loved one smile while you share a cuppa together.
Kafé Grön is here to make sure you wake up on the right side of the bed this Valentine's Day. Whether you’re an early riser or a late afternoon bruncher, they're also offering single servings for those of you planning on treating number one. Grön are offering up their take on a Croque Monsieur - made with freshly baked Sourdough bread, homemade truffle béchamel, sautéed mushrooms and spinach - and French toast with all trimmings.
Picnic Lunch From: OWT
The Corn Exchange bistro have you covered for a picnic of traditional Provençal dips made in-house, fresh focaccia and a very special bottle of wine. OWT recently became the first importer and seller of Château Gasqui wines in the UK. Keeping it a family affair, the wine is made by co-owner Esther's father, François, on his biodynamic vineyard in Gonfaron, Provence. The perfect picnic with bisous for afters.
Soulbox is a home-kitchen serving up plant-based dishes that taste like you're home. Young chefs Maye and Monifa both grew up surrounded by their large families, who taught them how to cook for many people with love. Their 3-course Valentine's menu (for two or for one) is a plant-based fine-dining treat featuring caramelised onion relish & feta cheese on a toasted baguette, ‘virloin’ steak & Dauphinois potatoes with a shallot & red wine jus, pear tart tatin with custard and a very special 'love potion' to pair.
Designed in a Leeds bedroom and printed on recycled card by two lovely creatives, Hello Community cards are the perfect way to show that special someone you're thinking of them. They have cards for everyone and in between: lovers, siblings, friends, one-time shags and even yourself.
Whether you buy into St. Valentine's or not, the day is always a chance to share some love with those you are close to. However you choose to spend the day, we here over at Nice People hope you end your weekend with a full heart.
