Aaah, Valentine’s Day. The day of Love. Remember those early days of ‘courting’ when you put such a lot of thought into cards, gifts and planning a romantic day together. Fast forward to now and like us, you’re probably lucky if you remember to buy each other a card!
If you want to surprise your other half and put a bit more effort in this year, here are a few ideas for you from our lovely Directory members.
A Valentine’s meal at Rump and Wade
Delicious Valentine’s Specials are available at Rump and Wade from 8th to 16th February – so you have a whole week to enjoy them! Rump and Wade is a fabulous British brasserie and is part of Hotel Cromwell in Stevenage Old Town.

Funky heart cushion from Riot Lounge and Rosita Lollipop
Check out this fabulous anatomical embroidered heart cushion which costs £30 and is available in store from Rosita Lollipop and Riot Lounge in Hitchin. Such a fun and original gift for your loved one, and will really brighten up your home!
Cross Stitch Picture Kit from Buttonbag
Show your love this Valentine’s Day by making this simple cross stitch picture from Buttonbag. With the love heart pattern already printed onto the canvas, following the stitches is easy and relaxing, and curiously addictive.
The kit contains everything you need including a wooden embroidery hoop – which makes a great frame – vibrantly coloured threads, needles, hanging ribbon, and full instructions. Ages eight to adult.
Available on the Buttonbag website for £9.99.
A led ride for two from Tina Walker Cycle Instructor
No need to argue about where you’re going or who’s taking the lead! Let experienced Cycle Instructor Tina Walker lead the two of you on a fun cycle ride around the local North Herts area. You can just relax and enjoy the scenery!
