It’s almost time for that day of the year that completely splits opinion. Whether you ‘love’ or ‘loathe’ Valentine’s Day, Thursday, February 14th is the date. (Any guys reading this might want to take note!)

My friends that are in relationships generally love the idea of getting pampered with breakfast in bed and the word’s ‘I WUV U’ embossed on their morning toast, but this shouldn’t be reserved for just one day of the year. Romance should be every day if you’re in a relationship, right??

If you’re not one for romance/ showmance and candle lit dinners, then here is our pick of some alternative ways to have fun.

Zorbing is such a fun thing to do. It involves you being strapped into a giant inflatable ball and being rolled down a hill. Test each other’s will power and see who screams first!  has some great offers up and down the country!


Fancy taking a lovers ‘Leap of Faith’? Book a tandem bungee jump! Whilst being strapped to each other, throw yourselves off from a great height and push each other over the edge…literally!

If music is more your thing then Plan B is doing a gig in Glasgow that night alongside Labrinth and Rudimental.


In Manchester, new star on the scene Jake Bugg, is performing at The Manchester Academy and in London we have the ID MAGAZINE MIXOYO PARTY at XOYO Feat new talent, The White Lamp.

Skin jewellery is going to be huge this season and these designs by J.Maskrey are our hot favourites. Rihanna, Cate Blanchet, Halle Berry plus many more are huge fans. Why not treat a mate that’s mending a broken heart, or better still, treat yourself! These ‘Angel Wings’ are beautiful but there are many other designs available including, ‘Rihanna Lips’. Stick them where ever you want, we won’t judge you..

This ‘Love Hurts’ vest top from ‘Wild Fox’ has quite a rebellious feel about it and they have a huge selection of other delights on their website.


If you’re feeling particularly nasty this Valentines and have decided this is the day you want to break up rather than make up…why not try doing it online via ibreakup, they will do all the dirty work for you. However, karma may come back to bite you on the bum at some point so we only suggest this if your partner has been REALLY, REALLY BAD!


Any hairy men out there? Show the ultimate devotion by doing this….


….please make sure that you immediately, fully wax the rest of the hair off though! WARNING: Some people will not find this funny and will actually be quite repulsed.

And for those of you that just couldn’t give a monkey, sit at home wait for the clock to strike midnight running into Feb 15th and get ordering JW Anderson’s new collection from Just simply forget Valentine’s Day ever existed….Now we’re talking!
