It’s not long until Valentine’s Day, and if you are in a relationship, these are five holiday ideas that you could gift your partner, or useas inspiration to set up a last-minute romantic getaway.
Couple’s Caribbean Cruise (check out Princess Cruises for ideas)
If you want to go all out with your Valentine’s Day gift, book a Caribbean cruise to surprise your partner. Enjoy all the quality food and entertainment you can handle on board, enjoy those ocean views, sunbathe by the pool, and hop off at interesting stops to explore the Caribbean. You’ll never get bored on a cruise as there is always something to do – from cookery lessons, to fitness classes. You can also just plank yourselves by the pool with an unlimited supply of cocktails too.

Self-Catering Villa in Spain (check out Villa Plus for ideas)
Why not take advantage of the warm weather in mainland Spain or the Canary Islands, and book a self-catering villa. Lots of them come with pools too, so your sunbathing spots are all set up and secured for you right at your door. A self-catering villa gives you the flexibility to be able to eat out or cook your own meals. Visit a local market or shop and pick up some Spanish supplies that will give you a taste of the region, or seek out the best local restaurants and brunch spots. Another good thing about having your own villa is that it’s a lot more private than a hotel – perfect for those PDAs by the pool.
UK Luxury Hotel Suite for Two (check out Small Luxury Hotels of the World for ideas)
There are so many stunning places to visit in our own country, so why not take a break for a night or two in the UK? If you want the best of the best hotels with first-class service, book a smaller, luxury boutique hotel as there are fewer guests and the service is more personal. You can also find some amazing Michelin star-worthy food in the restaurants in these boutique hotels. There’s always the option to just stay in bed all day and order room service too. Why not wrap up warm and go on a romantic country walk, or take your partner out shopping and buy them a Valentine’s Day treat?

US City Break (check out American Sky for ideas)
Why not head over to the US for a bustling city break full of shopping and good food. Shop, brunch and be a tourist during the day, then head out for a candlelit dinner, followed by a cosy bar afterwards for some cocktails. If you prefer to always be doing something on your vacations, instead of just lying by a pool, places like New York or Chicago are the ultimate city break locations. Trips like these are really memorable adventures too.
