Valentine's & Galentine's Date Ideas and Things to Do
Whether you're celebrating Valentine's or Galentine's, discover the best date ideas, activities and things to do this Valentine's Day to make it one to remember.
Happily single or coupled up, there’s no denying that love is truly in the air *cue Adele ‘Someone Like You’ on repeat*! If you’re anything like us, you’re still getting over the mammoth month that was January, and haven’t even thought about what to this February 14th (or 15th if you’re celebrating Galentine’s Day!) – but don’t worry, Katie Loxton has you covered. Our guide will help you find the perfect cupid-approved things to do on Valentine’s Day.
Probably the most popular of Valentine’s date ideas, a classic dinner and drinks plan always gets a ‘thumbs up’ from us. Opting for your usual table at your favourite local restaurant, or booking in advance for the latest Instagrammable food spot, we think our Astrid Chain Clutch in lilac will see you dine in style. It’s golden chain handle strap adds some serious luxury to every outfit it’s paired with, while the mini-but-mighty profile is as cute as it versatile – it will fit all your evening essentials in!
Already have plans in the evening or need to get back for the kids bedtime, a day date is a seriously underrated Valentine’s Day option, and one we personally LOVE. Bowling, watching the latest flick at the cinema, a bit or retail therapy, or a day trip to a new area, our Orla Crossbody Bag in sand makes for the most stylish of day date partner. The on-trend sand colourway and multi-compartment interior (the perfect way to keep your train tickets, cards, and essentials separated!) is met with a handy adjustable crossbody strap, so you can wear it your way.
Keep it cosy this Valentine’s evening by planning the ultimate night in! Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be about elaborate meals out, when a home-made meal and glass (bottle?) or wine in front of the telly does the trick just as well! All you need is; a new Netflix series (or your favourite film, we suggest a cheesy rom-com!), your chosen tipple, a fluffy blanket, snacks, and our Sentiment Mini Fragrance Set that boasts a gorgeous wild raspberry and sugar plum scent and is stamped with the sentiment ‘Fill Every Day With Laughter And Love’ in gold lettering.
Looking for things to do for Galentine’s Day? We think a brunch with your favourite girls is the ultimate celebration! Whether you’re going for a more relaxed brunch – think coffee and cake vibes – or going all out with a boozy brunch (because who doesn’t like to day drink and be in bed by 9pm?!), we think our Blake Shoulder Bag ticks all the Galentine’s Day boxes! The combination of the chic off white hue, golden statement detail and boxy shape, makes it the perfect companion for your Galentine’s plans, as it’s roomy enough for your make-up essentials, portable phone charger, and headphones for the journey home.
If you’re lucky enough to be whisked away for the weekend to celebrate Valentine’s Day, then there’s really only one thing you need from us; one of our top-rated Weekend Bags! To keep in with the ‘love’ theme, why not opt for our Oxford Weekend Holdall in a gorgeous, sweet pink hue – we know you will fall in love with it (pun absolutely intended!). Big enough to fit all your overnight-stay must-haves – leaving room to spare - this chic, roomy style oozes luxury, with its gold-tone hardware, attached luggage tag, and top handle/shoulder strap combo!
