Alfresco feast

You don’t need to go to a fancy restaurant to enjoy a good meal this Valentine’s Day. But you can branch out from standard cooking or takeaways; garden furniture has advanced in order to allow you to cook up a feast in your garden. Our Napoli Outdoor Kitchen is an elegant rustic cooking area with a barbeque and cooking grill plus a wood burning pizza oven to offer a choice of options. Enjoy your home-cooked meal in nature; you can also try one of our garden lights to add to the atmosphere!


In the mood for something low-key, inexpensive, but also magical? Well, nature can provide you with everything you need for an unforgettable date. Spend an evening gazing at the stars with a mug of hot chocolate or a bottle of wine. Cuddling up together under the star-studded sky is highly romantic and allows you the time to get to know each other on a deeper level. If it’s chilly outside, make sure to take one of our Diamond Blanket Throws to keep warm. Highly eco-friendly, they are made from 100% recycled plastic bottles.

Treasure hunt

Spice up the gift-giving process this year with a Valentine’s Day treasure hunt in your back garden. Send your lover on a trail of handwritten clues sprinkled with rose petals in order to find their Valentine’s gift. Perhaps you could add a competitive element and do a treasure hunt each with a specified number of clues- and see who reaches the end first! If your garden is lacking in decent points of interest, now could potentially be the time to purchase one of our garden ornaments to add intrigue to your outdoor space.

Marshmallow toasting

Heat things up with some marshmallow toasting around a bonfire. This simple, low-cost activity is guaranteed to make a romantic and memorable Valentine’s Day date that is a great way to get to know each other better in a fledgeling relationship. You can also branch out from tradition to cook a whole host of other items, including bread, potatoes, hot dogs, corn on the cob, and more. Try one of our fire pits for straightforward ignition; they also double up as a striking focal point during the day.


Make this year Valentine’s Day the one you will never forget by camping out under the stars. By setting up camp in your back garden, you can get back to nature without the expense of taking a trip elsewhere- plus you get to use your own bathroom! An evening getting back to basics and sleeping cuddled up together in the tent is bound to be highly romantic with the occasional humorous moment you can bond over. Bring our Camping Firebowl BBQ for some extra food and hot drinks!
