    I had a silver love heart engraved with mine and my boyfriends name :)
    he keeps it in his wallet :)

  2. Bought my partner a puppy , that was 11 years ago and they are both still here

  3. Stephanie says:

    I just asked my husband what the most romantic thing I’ve done for Valentines is, and he couldn’t come up with an answer. So I guess a trip to Union Jacks would be a high point!

  4. Emma Ferguson says:

    I decorate the living room with a valentine theme of hearts and roses. I always bake a cake each year. Last year it was a triple chocolate heart cake with chocolate roses on top. The last few years I have also cooked a three course meal served with nice wine 😉

  5. Staying in for a posh meal, as a young parent we do not get to do much as I hate leaving my son/feel guilty!

  6. Catherine Thomas says:

    boat trip round a remote island..

  7. Would love a rare night out with the OH and this would actually be our first Valentines in 10years! Hubby puts it all down as ‘commercialism’ Long live romance!

  8. Rita Mistry says:

    For valentines day we try and go somewhere nice to eat, but this is not always possible to get a table. This prize sounds amazing, myself and my husband have never been to Union Jacks before and we live close to Chiswick. Good luck everyone.

    • Rita Mistry says:

      Sorry, I forgot to add the most romantic thing I have ever done, I organised a surprise trip to Paris and went on a dinner cruise on the River Seine. He enjoyed it although I did not know that he was seasick until we got back to our hotel. We both had a good time despite this. Just no more boats for hubby without medication.

  9. Katherine L says:

    The most romantic thing for Valentines Day … It was quite a few years ago but I planned a picnic for my then-boyfriend, now husband … complete with champagne! The thought was there, the weather was not! Wrapped up tight, we braved the elements for all of 20mins until we had to pull the plug of my romantic gesture. Hey, at least it’s the thought that counts!

  16. Nickie Chapman says:

    I’m not the most romantic person I must admit! Probably the most romantic thing I did was make heart-shaped cookies decorated like love hearts with personal messages on them (some rude, some sweet!)

    Got on a flight to Brazil to go to see my BF while he was working away! Crazy and not like me at all as a rule but…

  22. Wendy Lam says:

    The most romantic day I set out for my boyfriend was actually last year where I promised him I will have it all sorted. The day started with me making him help me take my little brother to school and picking up his little girlfriend along the way and dropping them off. Then after a walk through the shopping mall next to the college where we first met we headed off for a early screening at the cinema, sharing a box of popcorn right at the backseat whilst watching other couples together doing the same thing. Then it was lunch at a Michelin restaurant surrounded by more longer term relationship couples like us enjoying a 5 course menu with separate wines per course. He offered to pay but I insisted that for the first time in our relationship, I would like to pay. When we were sober enough to walk and act normal I told him to help me do some grocery shopping which confused him (he must have thought the day was over) and help me buy some sweet treats to take back with us. After another stroll and a sit in the park, watching couples pick up their children from school we made it our final destination in my plan which was to a Valentines party at an elderly community service. We dropped off the treats there and had so much fun dancing with the elders before being left alone to dance together to slow romantic music. And this was where I made my speech. I told him how I remember how we met when we were young at school and how I want to know everything I missed before we met. How I remember our first date in the cinema and how attached and newly in love we were to falling in love and just being happy with each other, treating ourselves to expensive treats to doing the more casual stuff like shopping and being truly happy and content with him just there beside me. And finally I ended the speech with saying how much I would like to grow old with him and be a happy married couple, starting a family and picking up his kids from school and like these elderlies around us, retired, old but still happy because they still got each other. And we ended the moment with a kiss sharing the tears on each other’s faces.

    champagne for his birthday and the hotel used them to give everyone at breakfast the next morning (his actual birthday) bucks fizz and they all sang happy birthday to him – amazing!
