Love Is In The Air This Valentines!

6th February 2017    Holidays

It’s that time of year again when we get to celebrate love. Valentine’s Day also called Saint Valentine’s Day originated in the ancient Roman festival of Lupercalia, a fertility celebration commemorated annually on February 15th Pope Gelasius I recast this pagan festival as a Christian feast day circa 496, declaring February 14th to be St. Valentine’s Day. So now you know the history, here are some of our Valentine’s Day ideas!

Night in

Sometimes there is nothing better than a cosy night in. If you’re on a budget, why not treat your loved one to a takeaway or cook them up a tasty meal? It’s the thought that counts after all!

Night out

There is an array of places to take your loved one on Valentine’s Day. Wiltshire, Dorset & Somerset all have their fair share of great places to eat from restaurants boasting a Michelin-starred chef to cosy pub settings that serves traditional hearty food! Whatever you choose to go for, a meal for two is definitely worth it!

Romantic walk

There is nothing better than a romantic stroll with your loved one. Our top picks are the famous Westbury White Horse in Wiltshire with free parking, Lulworth Cove in Dorset with its stunning views and places to eat and Kings Cliff in Somerset with its forest walks and breathtaking scenery.

Spa Day

If your loved one loves to be pampered, then a Spa day could be a great gift idea. Indulge in a relaxing spa day treat from Buyagift – unwind and de-stress.

Balloon Flight

Have you ever thought of giving a gift to a loved one that they will cherish forever? A balloon flight is a memorable and exciting experience. Why not treat your loved one to a Champagne Balloon Flight? We have afternoon flights available on Sunday 12th February launching from Exeter, Taunton or Shaftesbury.

To book one of these flights, you will need to purchase our Balloon Flight for Two vouchers priced at £275 for two people to join a flight with other passengers.  Ballooning is very weather dependent and the vouchers are non-refundable.  If your Valentines flight is cancelled, your voucher will be valid for the 2017 flying season for you to schedule another date.  The main flying season is April – October.

If you would prefer to fly another time but want to treat your loved one to the gift of flight, why not buy them a voucher? Our prices start from just £99 per person! You can also book on a private balloon flight for two if you want the experience to be even more intimate.
