Last minute tips to impress your partner this Valentine’s Day

Don’t get left in the dog house this year (again)!

The day of love is here. Wait… Did you seriously forget about it again?

If you’ve messed up and let Valentine’s Day slip your mind, there’s still time to turn things around.

Here are three tips that will help you impress your partner and stay out of the dog house.

1) Cook a Homemade Dinner for Two

Let’s be honest, all the fancy-pants restaurants are going to be booked up. C’est la vie. You missed the boat.

However, you could make your partner feel extra special by whipping up a romantic meal for two at home.

Don’t panic if you’re no Jamie Oliver, there are some free cookery apps you can use:

  • Kitchen Stories

Having trouble coming up with recipes? Try the Kitchen Stories app. This freebie has a massive range of recipes in the bank and, aside from easy-to-read instructions, you will also get the odd video tutorial too.

  • Yummly Recipes

One of the best things about the Yummly app is that it allows you to search a whole range of websites at the touch of a button. What’s more, you can also add filters to find the right type of food for you. So, if bae happens to be gluten-free, finding the right meal is simple.

2) Have a Movie Night Together

There’s nothing quite as romantic as snuggling up together under a duvet and watching some movies.

If you’re looking for a low-cost way to woo your love, you might just have found it. If you don’t already have a streaming subscription, check out these deals.

  • Vodafone Red Entertainment Plan

If you’re looking to upgrade and get an awesome streaming deal, you can get yourself the Vodafone Red Entertainment Plan. The 24-month contract includes a bonus entertainment subscription of your choice. Pick from Amazon Prime Video, NOW TV, or Spotify (for some romantic tunes!).

  • Three Advance Plan

Plus, there’s also the Three Advance Plan, which comes with Go Binge on deals with 12GB of data or more. The Go Binge package means you can stream all the music and movies you want without eating into any of your data. Impressive stuff.

  • EE Max Plan

Don’t fancy watching a soppy flick? If you’d rather check out the latest game with your love, the EE Max Plan could be for you. The contract gives you free access to BT Sport for the entire time you have it. Score.

3) Treat Them to a Last-Minute Gift

Of course, you don’t want to show up empty handed this Valentine’s Day. If you’re looking to save yourself some pennies, though, why not check out some deals online? Here are a couple of ideas that you might want to try.

  • O2 Priority offers

If you happen to be on O2, you might be able to bag a last-minute bargain gift. Download the Priority app and check out the freebies and offers online. You can get excellent deals such as £5 mains at Pizza Express or selected books for under a fiver at WHS.

  • Wuntu deals

On the other hand, if you have a Three contract, you’re going to want to check out the Wuntu app. You can expect offers from the likes of Dominos, Greggs and more. Simply scroll through the app and find something for your special someone.
