Because nothing says romance like candles, snuggling under a blanket and giving recycled cards.
- Light your home with candles
Your loved one will be overwhelmed by the romantic gesture, while you can save money on electricity bills.
- Turn up the heat by turning the down the radiator
Save even more by lowering the temperature in the house and snuggling up under a blanket together.
- Eat at home
Instead of splashing out on an expensive meal, why not cook a delicious leg of lamb or roast a chicken in a slow cooker? These one-pot wonders are highly energy efficient and will also take minimal effort. We even have a list of easy slow cooker recipes in a blog below.
- Turn the TV off and talk to each other
A potentially terrifying situation, but why not turn the TV and laptops off and just talk to each other? Reminisce about the past and make plans for the future
- Have an entire electricity-free day
Stay in bed, order a take-away from your mobile and play on old school battery-operated Gameboys, read magazines…or find something else to pass the time.
- Struggling for gifts or cards?
Christmas wasn’t that long ago, wrap up an unopened box of chocolates and recycle an old valentines card -even the one they gave you last year, just cross out the ‘to’ and ‘from’ names and swap them around.
