With Valentine’s Day just two days away (guys have you bought your gifts?) we spoke to our fabulous staff about their favourite romantic gestures. From thoughtful acts to elaborate plans, we loved hearing these beautiful acts of love! We’d love to hear yours, leave a comment at the bottom of the article to share the love…

Paul proposed to me in the most romantic of all places – Venice – on a balcony at the gorgeous Hotel Danieli, overlooking the Grand Canal. We had only stopped in Venice for one night on our way to Florence, so I had absolutely no idea that was what he was planning. It was a hugely romantic moment, and Venice is still the most special place in the world to me!
When I first started dating someone I went to Greece on holiday for two weeks. He gave me a package to open on the plane, which was a hand written letter for every day I was away. It was the most romantic gesture and I absolutely loved it – safe to say he was very much on my mind for the whole holiday and I couldn’t wait to get back to see him!

If Dan goes away he always leave a little chocolate on my pillow to let me know he’ll be missing me. He also always comes home with wine and flowers on his return. Those little acts of kindness are one of many many reasons I’m marrying him in September!

If my boyfriend ever has a half day at work, he rushes home to cook me a lovely meal as a treat, he puts all of his effort into making it special. I love it x

On my Mom’s Birthday Dad left for work as normal leaving her a card on the windowsill and asking her to promise not to open it until he called her after his meeting. We spent hours excitedly coming up with ideas as to what it’d be… Mum was starting to panic that’d be a new tumble dryer and wasn’t sure how she’d hide her disappointment.
The time came and the phone rang, Mom ran to the windowsill, opened the card and shouted “I can’t read French, what does it say?”, we all looked at the words stumped ‘il a besoin d’une maman’. Dad was standing in the hallway with the tiniest black French Bulldog curled up in his arms. The card read “I need a mum”.
The next thing we knew there was hysteria, with me, my sister and my Mom all crying! Dad did very well, he got Mom exactly what she asked for, he’d surprised us all and done it in such a romantic way!
