5 Fun Things to Do This Valentine’s Day

Who needs a table at a fancy restaurant? You can have just as much fun at home. If you’re looking for something to do on Valentine’s Day instead of a three course dinner, why not pick one of these things to do?

Valentine’s Day Karaoke

Pick out some love songs, turn them up loud and sing along. For an added challenge, take turns with the singing. When the other person is singing, it’s your job to turn the music down at a random point in the song – your partner will need to carry on singing on their own, and when you turn the music back up they should be as close to the right point in the song as possible.

Treasure Hunt

Heart Shaped Synthetic Lapis PendantTreasure hunts are always fun, and you’re never too old to enjoy them. One of you should set up the hunt, hiding items and clues around the home, so that the other can spend some time searching. Why not plan a treasure hunt as a surprise for your significant other, with a piece of romantic jewellery or another little gift as a prize for finding every clue?

‘Perfect’ Poetry

Write three words on a piece of paper for your partner. Ask them to do the same for you. Swap over, and write a romantic poem including each of the three words that you’ve been given. This is more fun if you’ve included words like ‘pickle’, ‘catalogue’ and ‘karate’ than traditional romantic words, so be creative when you’re making your choices.

Valentine’s Treats Roulette

Melt a big bowl full of chocolate. Dip in a wide range of items from grapes, marshmallows and fudge to more unusual foods – how about a mushroom, or a chip? Wait for the chocolate to dry, put everything into an opaque bag and take turns to reach in, pick something out and eat it. Who will get the nice Valentine’s Day treats, and who’s going to get a bit of a surprise?

Photo Challenge

Grab your cameras, or your camera phones. Sit on the sofa and, at the same time, go on a run around the house. You must take photographs of items starting with each letter of the word VALENTINES. You can’t use the same item for a repeated letter and the first person back to the sofa is the winner.

Have a little fun this Valentine’s Day. A night in could be the perfect way to enjoy quality time together. Why not order in a takeaway, set up your Valentine’s Day games and exchange gifts before the chaos begins? Don’t forget that you’ll find a great selection of jewellery on our website, for every budget and every style preference.

Christmas Gift Ideas for Your Family

We all talk about the excitement of Christmas, but preparations aren’t always easy! In fact, it can be really difficult to find the perfect Christmas gift for every member of your family. You want to get the very best present for everyone, but sometimes the choice can be overwhelming! That’s why we’ve put together this guide to buying for certain people.

Don’t forget that if the decision is still too difficult, we stock our very own Delicate Dreams £10 gift certificates.

Buying Christmas Gifts for Daughters

We stock a wide range of jewellery gifts for daughters of all ages. Younger children love wearing beautiful pieces of jewellery, but their rough-and-tumble play can put bracelets and necklaces at risk.

Instead of investing in very expensive jewellery that might be damaged at the park, why not browse the Delicate Dreams selection? Our ladybird bracelets are perfect for younger children as they’re bright, colourful and fun, but at just £12.49 they won’t break the bank.

For an older daughter, our amethyst squiggle pendant has always been a favourite!

What About Christmas Gifts for a Partner?

We have a wide selection of romantic jewellery for every partner, from the new girlfriend to your wife of 50 years.

Our heart bracelets with mock satin cords are favourites to add to a more contemporary jewellery box, whilst our heart pendant with a peridot facet offers a more classic look.

Are You Buying Jewellery Gifts for a Friend?

If you’re a teenager looking for a cute pair of earrings to give to a friend, then why not take a look at these beautiful butterfly earrings? They’re a stud style, so easy to wear and great even if your friend doesn’t like loops or drop earrings.

For music lovers, our treble clef earrings are a popular choice, or you could even buy a brand new jewellery box for your best friend.

Purchasing a Christmas Gift for Mum

Many of our Celtic jewellery items are favourites as gifts for mums. These items include lovely brooches to accessorise with – perfect for any special events that your mum ends up attending!

Browse our Dew Jewellery category for a beautiful selection of gifts for mums, including pearl earrings. Mum might also appreciate the gift of restored jewellery – a polishing cloth can make all of her existing Sterling Silver jewellery look new and shiny once more, and so it’s a great little present to add to what you buy her!

Buying Jewellery for a More Distant Relative or Secret Santa Recipient

Occasionally, we have to buy Christmas gifts for people that we don’t know too well. That’s a great reason to purchase a Delicate Dreams gift voucher!

Why not see what else is available on our website? You can browse and buy, even selecting by price for the best jewellery for under £10!
