Valentine’s Day at home? We have rounded up the most delicious deals and treats

Trine Jensen-Burke

So much love in the air.

Valentine’s Day will roll around again this Monday, and, unlike last year, this year we are actually allowed to pretty much get on with things as normal. Dinners out, dancing, cocktails, a trip to the spa for a couple’s massage – it is all on the table.

However, should you still wish to spend Valentine’s Day curled up at home (and honestly, can we all agree that this is a perfectly great way to spend this day?), you need not worry about a thing – because there are some seriously sweet deals going on meals, treats and even the perfect at-home cocktail.

Ready to up the romance factor on your Valentine’s Day at home? Here are just some of the deals that are bound to set your heart racing:

1. M&S Valentine’s Dine-In For Two 

This Valentine’s weekend, the two of you can feast on your choice of starter, main, side and dessert – all for just €18 – meaning you are saving a lovely €19.20 on the meal overall.

For starters, you can for instance go for the Leek and Cheese Soufflé Tarts (delicious butter enriched puff pastry filled with leek and creamy extra mature cheddar & red Leicester) and how about the Pie Love You as your main course (chicken in a creamy white wine sauce, encased in all-butter pastry)? Or how does the Love Heart ravioli sound?

Delicious? So are the desserts too. Fancy some very seasonal doughnuts? Or how about the I’m Bananas for You – a banana sponge with a caramel blonde chocolate mousse and salted caramel sauce, with a wafer base and topped with a white chocolate heart.

For all the plant eaters, there is also a fully vegan combination menu to enjoy. How does the Plant Kitchen Vegan Duck Croquettes sound? Or the Plant Kitchen 2 Smokey Saffron Aubergine Steaks? And how about the Plant Kitchen Sweet Potato Fries? And for dessert, the Plant Kitchen Love Heart Churros? YUM.

As well as the meal deal, fans of M&S iconic Love Sausage will be delighted to learn the dish is back on the menu once more. The popular sausage, made with the finest British pork and wrapped in smoky bacon with a hint of truffle, made some big waves back in 2019 when it was first launched. And for good reason.

Other products in M&S’ tasty Valentine’s Day range include the Date Night Share-cuterie Grazing Box, which, we have to admit, looks seriously impressive.

And equally impressive does The Ultimate Cosmopolitan Cocktail Duo (€15) sound – with two delicious either single-serve ,”Cosmo” & “Politan” cocktail bottles, or served together “Cosmopolitan”

2. Avoca Valentine’s Day Dinner For Two

Another delicious option if you are staying in this Valentine’s Day, is Avoca’s seriously delicious-sounding Valentine’s Day Dinner For Two.

For just €27.95 in total, the menu includes options such as wild mushroom and truffle risotto, Avoca fillet steaks with beef dripping and rich chocolate mousse.

Essentially, it is up to you – just choose your favourites and enjoy a starter, main, side and two mini desserts– all for just €27.95. The deal is available in Avoca Food Markets from Thursday 10th February.

Oh – and if you fancy something really fancy, Avoca is also doing a Bubbles and Chocolate Hamper for just €35 –and can we just say, who needs flowers anyway?!
