Valentine’s Day in Nottingham – Feeling The Feels Yet?
Valentine’s day is almost upon us, and if you’re anything like me, you’re probably stuck in your student accommodation.
While this means that you don’t have to worry about paying for a fancy dinner out at a restaurant or booking a trip away somewhere, it also means that finding ways to spend time with your partner might be tricky. So here are some ideas for how to make the most of Valentine’s Day at home:
- Dust those shelves and read a nice book together, or bond even further and read love poems for each other.
- Have an indoor picnic. We mean it, don’t you eat on that table. Lay your nicest blanket on the floor and just enjoy it.
- Clean that drawer full of unused stationary you bought in your first year and make a date out of it. Draw your partner their spirit animal and see if you two have the same vision.
- Have a romantic movie night in and enjoy some homemade popcorn and a heart shaped pizza.
- Plan a game night – Break out the board games or video games and spend the evening competing against each other.
For those of you who just feel the need to be extra, here’s a few activities you can do in Nottingham
- Go to an early mystery murder party that’s set in 1968. Visit the National Justice Museum on Saturday 11th February and you won’t be disappointed when you findout WHO DID IT.
- Are you a wine connoisseur? Would you like to become one for a night? Head to the Wine Room City for some Valentine’s wine tasting after a long uni week.
- Listen, if you didn’t know that Italian food is the perfect idea when it comes to romance, just know you heard it here first. Go to Piccolino for a romantic dinner and be sure to finish the night with a tiramisu.
- If fancy dinners are not your thing, how about a 1950 American prom? Take your prom date and dance at The Heartbreakers Ball on February 14th. Who knows, you might even be chosen as Queen and King.
- For all our party lovers and ravers here, Icon club is hosting a Traffic Light Party on Valentine’s Day and we wish we could go too!
Valentine’s Day is often associated with couples and romance, but it’s important to remember that not everyone is in a relationship.
For those who are single, Valentine’s Day can feel like a reminder of their relationship status, but it doesn’t have to be a bad thing. Instead of feeling left out, why not celebrate being single and host an Anti-Valentine’s Day party? Remember, being single on Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be a negative thing. By embracing your single status and celebrating it with friends, you can make the most of this holiday and have a fun and memorable experience.
Whether you’re single or in a relationship, it’s important to spread love and kindness to those around you. This can be as simple as sending a message of encouragement to a friend, volunteering your time to help someone in need, or just showing a little extra kindness to someone who might be having a tough day.
