Case Studies
It’s that time of year again… Christmas is a distant memory, January is FINALLY over and the day of love is upon us. That’s right, it’s nearly time for Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re single or in a relationship Valentine’s Day is a great time to show your loved ones how much you appreciate them.

In our modern society, Valentine’s Day is not solely about celebrating your special someone—people now share the day with family, friends or even treat themselves to some much needed “me” time. Once you’ve established who you’re going to spend Valentines’ Day with, the panic begins to set in:
A) What am I going to do?!
B) How am I going to afford this?!

If you’re struggling for Valentines’ Day ideas on a budget then look no further, here at Service Care Solutions we have you covered to ensure you have the best Valentine's Day yet!

For the Food Lovers

For those of you looking forward to a cosy night in this Valentine’s Day, Marks and Spencer are bringing back their famous £20 Meal Deal. The package includes a starter, main, side, dessert, box of chocolates and a bottle of wine / soft drink - saving you up to £16.30! So get your comfy clothes on, a good film on the TV and treat your loved one to some luxury food in the comfort of your own home… what more could you want?!

For the Nature Lovers

Valentine’s Day doesn’t always have to be about dressing up, heading to a flashy restaurant and spending a fortune… sometimes the simple things in life can be more special. The National Trust have put together the perfect package for a Valentine’s Day spent in the great outdoors. The options cover romantic walks, scenic backdrops and even allow you to visit some famous film sets! Find some more information here  

For the Movie Lovers

Why pay money to go out to the cinema, when you can create your own?! All you need are the essentials: lots of blankets, some good snacks (obviously!), and a feel-good film! Whether you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day, ‘Galentine’s Day’ or treating yourself to some personal time, a movie night is guaranteed to leave you feeling chilled, relaxed and another benefit is that it won’t break the bank!

For the Thoughtful Gift Lovers

If you know that your special someone would appreciate a gift this Valentine’s Day, why not make your own? Thoughtful DIY gifts are the ideal way to show someone how much you care about them. Even if you’re not the most creative person, don’t worry, here is a list of easy DIY ideas for the perfect Valentine’s Gift.

1) A scrapbook of memories with your special someone
2) I.O.U Cards- offer your Valentine a supply of treats from yourself whenever they need them! The cards can contain simple favours such as cooking a meal, watching their favourite film or even household chores!
3) Baking- the way to anyone’s heart is through some good food, so why not bake your Valentine their favourite sweet treat?!
4) Painting- if you’re into arts and crafts, painting your loved one a picture is a perfect thoughtful gift.
5) A Jar of Reasons Why…- a sentimental gift, guaranteed to share the love this Valentine’s Day. Simply take an old jar and fill it with reasons of why you love/appreciate your Valentine.

Hopefully you now have an idea of how you want to spend this Valentine’s Day, it’s time to get planning!
