Love is in the air!

In honour of Saint Valentine, we've put together a selection of activities you can do with your friends and your loved ones to celebrate this iconic day of love.  



Persian Love Cake

Bake something sweet this Valentine's Day. A fragrant cake full of cardamom and infused with rose, the cake is apparently inspired by a story where a Persian woman was madly in love with a Prince. To make him fall in love with, she baked a cake full of magical love powers so he would return her love. 



Get Lost in Prose

Beloved Chilean poet and Nobel Laureate Pablo Neruda published a book of poetry in 1952. The love poems have since been celebrated all over the world, due to his elegant and dreamy prose, inspired by the seas, landscapes, and his experiences in love. His book, 'Love Poems,' is exclusively devoted to romantic odes and sweet ballads.

Here’s a teaser…

‘As if you were on fire from within.
The moon lives in the lining of your skin.’

Watch a Romantic Film 

Time for movie night! Suggest a romantic movie tonight for your friends and loved ones. The film, Omar, tells the story of a young Palestinian man torn between his devotion to the Palestinian cause, and the woman he loves. Omar was screened 2013 Cannes Film Festival and was nominated for an Oscar for Best Foreign Film. 

Pen a Love Letter 

Pen a letter to a close friend, a relative, or a romantic partner. Receiving a letter in the post is a thoughtful way to brighten someone's day. Send your note along with a homemade Valentine's Day card if you're feeling particularly crafty. 


Romantic Ballads

 Put on a Valentine's Day playlist as you cook dinner, or entertain your friends. We love old-fashioned jazz, or inspired hits like Nina Simone's 'My Baby Just Cares For Me' or 'At Last' by Etta James
