Romantic Recipes For Those Who Do Not Cook

0 Comments 23 August 2011

Some people are naturally gifted in the kitchen and can throw together a virtual feast with very little effort. However, if your idea of cooking involves opening a box and placing in the microwave for two minutes, then look no further. The following ideas are great to use on dates.

An indoor picnic will melt the heart of even the least romantic person. If you live in reliably sunny climates then certainly go the whole hog and have an outdoor picnic. Picnic are fantastic because they require no cooking, very little cleaning up and are very easy to prepare. Try some French bread, a selection of cheese, a bowl of walnuts, some fresh ham , some hard boiled quail eggs and a fruit flan (hop bought but it will look fantastic). Take everything out of its wrapper and use boxes or greaseproof paper instead. If you really are going for it in the romance stakes, a bottle of icy Champagne and two glasses will complete the perfect picnic! Continue Reading

What to Wear on a First Date

0 Comments 02 July 2011

So, you have made an online connection, chosen the venue and you are now ready for the date. Except you do not have a clue what to wear.  There are a few rules to follow that can help ease those long stares into the back of your wardrobe. Follow these and enjoy your date!

  1. Think comfort. During the date, it is important to be focused on your other half rather than worrying about tripping over your maxi dress or flip flops. If you dress comfortably, then it is a lot easier to remain relaxed and calm.
  2. Don’t try too hard. It could be quite easy to turn up to that restaurant dressed as though you are about to approach the runway at London Fashion Week. Remember, the date was set up as you both had some things in common. Therefore, unless you have bagged a date with a fashion editor, leave the Alexander McQueen’s at home and tone it down.
  3. Big jewellery is a fashionable trend at the moment. Big jangly bracelets, huge chandelier earrings and chunky metal necklaces really are in vogue. The problem comes when your potential boyfriend starts to become a little fed up with the clattering of wood and metal. It can be disconcerting for the most tolerant of people. Continue Reading

Romantic Hints for Men

0 Comments 01 July 2011

It has been said that British men are dreadful at the art of romance.  In comparison studies with other European nations, the British men came last in the romance stakes. It seems that they believed that the way to influence a woman’s heart was by buying expensive presents and lingerie.

The European chaps were far more communicative about their emotions and got extra points for declaring their feelings.

The following list will certainly give male members a few ideas and if you are female, why not print a copy and casually leave it lying on the coffee table!


  1. Make her a compilation tape of the music that is special to her.  This could be her favourite hymns or even the music that played during a first date. The key to this being successful is that it must be personal to the person that you are giving the music to. Continue Reading

Fabulous Gifts for Men

0 Comments 30 June 2011

Further to our perfect gift for women post, Men like to receive a gift as much as women. A token of your affection can earn you serious brownie points. However, this will only happen if the gift is appropriate and well thought out . Use some of the following ideas and surprise your date with an unforgettable present.

  1. Magazine subscription.  This surely is the gift that keeps on giving as most subscriptions are for a year or six months. Men usually have an interest or hobby.  If you cannot pinpoint their speciality then you could try a magazine such as “G.Q.” as it covers many different topics. If your date has a specialist hobby e.g. scuba diving, then a subscription to a magazine is usually well received.
  2. Music.  Men often enjoy listening to music, some prefer live music. If this is the case with your man, then a simple but effective idea is to bag some concert tickets. If your budget is tight, then forget the Albert Hall. Try local venues as these often have bands that play in a similar style to successful  bands . This can be a good nights entertainment.
  3. Comedy.  Some comedians are risqué and you may want to do a little research before committing to an evening in their company. You might prefer to try a local venue where nights are often held with  several  up and coming comedians. However, if you want to splash the cash and see an established act, then simply check out all major venues in your area. Continue Reading

Choose the right film and you might just have the most romantic night of your life.

The Perfect Gift for a Woman

The Perfect Gift (For A Woman)

Perfect GiftsIn order to impress your female date, all you need is charm and wit (no pressure then!). An old trick used since time began is to present your date with a token of your affection. Budgets can vary and so the following ideas should be able to suit most budgets.

  1. A rose. Is this tacky? A little but will the lady accept it with a smile? I think so. If you are not a traditionalist, then give her an Orchid, a bunch of Bluebells or even a Sunflower. Do not waste your cash on forecourt flowers, they never impress. If possible buy a single bloom from a florist and watch her face light up.
  2. Chocolates are another option for that romantic gift. I would aim for good quality chocolates rather than a huge box of the more ordinary kind. If you are feeling a little bit creative, a box of homemade strawberries dipped in chocolate would impress any woman!
  3. Jewellery. This could be very expensive if the lady refuses to wear anything but diamonds. However, a really fashionable item of jewellery, such as a group of bracelets, would make a lovely gift and are inexpensive. Shops such as Oliver Bonas, John Lewis or Marks and Spencer should be able to provide you with some excellent gifts.
  4. Books. A book of poetry, a book of love letters or a chic coffee table book of cool photography proves a thoughtful gift. Depending on the age and taste of your date, the above will certainly go down well. When you really feel a connection between the two of you, a special gift could be a Bible. Maybe a copy that has meant something to you in your life or perhaps an aged copy from a vintage bookshop. Continue Reading
