Last Minute Valentine’s breaks | valentines weekend getaways for HER

Men. Boats. Valentine’s Day. It’s not a combination that sings of happy wives and girlfriends but we know a thing or two about last minute Valentine’s breaks that may just help. So read on.

Last Minute Valentine’s breaks

We get a lot of calls at this time of year from guys trying to find a last minute break to impress their partners.

Some are trying to show that they hadn’t forgotten for once. Others are trying to impress for the first time. And then there’s the good guys who are looking for the best Valentine’s gift ever. Something that really pushes the boat out.

It’s not too late

With one week to go you may be thinking your only option is an underwhelming dinner with the world and their wife (literally). Or perhaps you are more of a Milk Tray man. Or maybe you think a trip the garage on Tuesday evening for some already wilting roses may do the trick?

Some good news gents – you aren’t the only one (and if you read on you definitely won’t be the last). We’ve read that most men leave it to the last minute but why risk it when according to this infographic:

27% of women would prefer a weekend away as a Valentine’s Day treat (more than jewellery, spa treatments or even a car!).

23% of women said that Valentine’s is the perfect time to propose.

So let us give you a hand.

Stay on a boat

What better way to impress and do something totally different than have a romantic night on board a boat? It isn’t going anywhere so you don’t have to muster any made up navigation skills or sudden knot-tying talent. All you need is the bubbly. And

We’ve collected some of our romantic favourites for you to help decide – there’s boats from under £70 per night.

How about a luxury 50ft Sunseeker in Lymington? A few hours from London with the New Forest at your doorstep and views across to the Isle of Wight.

A night or two on a boat ticks so many boxes for her that it’s got to be an easy win for this Valentine’s Day.

But let’s not forget about you. Now that you’ve got this years gift to remember sorted, it’s time to sit back and enjoy the benefits of being on a boat. Peace and quiet, clear skies, cold beers and the satisfaction of giving your partner what she always wanted.
