Cook a Romantic Dinner Together

Save some pennies and rather than going out rustle up something special together. No need to find a babysitter, squeeze into an overcrowded restaurant, and find a taxi at the end of the night. You can enjoy your favourite dishes at home and make a romantic moment creating it together. Luckily here in the heart of Cornwall we are surrounded by some of the best producers in the world. At The Cornish Food Box you can find all you'll need to make a special meal for two, and you can get it delivered to your door wherever you are in the UK. From a great range of Cornish Fish and Seafood, Grass Fed Beef Steaks, wide selection of Cornish cheese, and award winning wines including Camel Valley Brut.

If you don't fancy spending too much time in the kitchen why not order one of these amazing Heart Shaped Pasties? Perfect for two to share and available as traditional steak, cheese or vegan.

Treasure Hunt

Use a combination of treats and trinkets that you know they'll love from beautiful scented candles from St Eval, minatures bottles of artisan gin, and delicious artisan chocolate from Chocolarder.

Couples Activity

Spend time together. You could choose to learn a new skill, try a new activity, or make something to symbolise your partnership. Whether it is polishing up your dance skills together, trying out a new sport, or getting hot under the collar in the kitchen, working on something together is the best way to bring you together.

Make Your Own Card
