What are your plans for February 14th?

It’s that time of the year again, and the season of love is upon us (dry heave)  where love hearts of all shapes and sizes are ready to leap from every shop window, and cupids are hanging in every door way with their trusted bow and arrow awaiting their next victim of luuuurve. Now whether you fully partake in the day that is especially assigned for you to show your significant other just how much you adore them (surely one day is not enough?) or you feel caught up in yet another money-making we do have the the best gift guide covering all bases from the “Ive loved your forever gift” to the “we may not make it past the weekend gift”…..

RIVA Arena,(Pictured Above) for the tech lover this gadget is top of our list. The guys at Riva have created this compact multi room speaker that will deliver a stereophonic sound for all you music enthusiasts. Even if your partner is a technophobe this speaker connects easily with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Airplay, unlimited streaming and simple set up! There is the Riva Wand App available on IOS & Android so you can operate the speaker directly from your mobile device and it allows you to personalise your streaming experience! If you want some quiet down time with your loved one perhaps don’t but the extra battery pack for 20 hours playback and 50 watts of amplified power this gift will get the party started!




We love this jacket from Different Views, a new street wear brand offering the perfect gift for those fashionista men! They’ve just launched their SS18 collection, Different Views covers both ends of the fashion spectrum with stylised casual pieces that will transform from a day date to those still partying on it to the wee hours! With brighter colours for the braver souls and dark navy’s with a flash of colour for the more conscious character! This brand is full of wardrobe essentials for the 14th Feb and all year!




This unisex fragrance may be on the slightly higher end of the budget, with the OUD Scent containing some of the most expensive raw ingredients in the world!!! Known as the lasting fragrance, a little really does go a long way (it can be quite potent so this is not for the faint hearted). Originating from Assam in India  OUD is a favourite amongst the elite on the red carpet including Kate Bosworth and Jared Leto.

Prices start at around £95

And of course we all like to be swept off our feet! How about a nice rump steak? In fact scratch that, how about a steak beak instead? Well Gregg’s Bakery is offering a fine dining experience, and turning its Newcastle branch into a romantic restaurant for one night only.

Yes, you heard right, the Grainger Street shop has teamed up with OpenTable, the world’s leading restaurant booking service, to open its doors for couples to enjoy a candlelit dinner. There will no queuing at the till, instead diners will be served a four course meal at their own candlelit table. So if you prefer mini doughnuts to mini hors d’oeures then Gregg’s has got you covered!


And finally for the film buff’s we obviously have to mention the latest in the fifty shades trilogy, Fifty Shades Freed is out in cinemas on February 9th and see’s our fave characters Anastasia and the ever mysterious Mr Christian Grey continue their love story, this time as newlyweds! Might not be the ideal film for a first date (ladies be prepared to gush over the wedding dress worn by the newly crowned Mrs Grey, Gents be prepared to run maybe??). Obviously there would be no film if all was perfect in wedded bliss, and the couple find themselves facing threats that could ruin the happy ever after before its even begun! So grab yourself some popcorn, fizzy and a giant nacho selection box and don’t forget to tell your special one that……”all mobile devices must be switched off”
