When you are eight-years-old, writing S.W.A.L.K. on a big red envelope is more than enough to put a smile on your Valentine’s face (throw in a packet of Love Hearts and they’re officially in heaven).
But now that you’re all grown up, it’s going to take a little more than that to dazzle the one you love.
Like, for instance, the gift of a soothing spa day for one or two at Edinburgh’s Macdonald Holyrood Hotel, with a facial, massage and glass of fizz included.
Smart central hotel
Situated in the heart of Old Town and with the Scottish Parliament as its next door neighbour (swish), Macdonald Holyrood Hotel is a 4-star getaway with views of Arthur’s Seat.
As well as a heated swimming pool, the hotel’s spa includes a state-of-the-art gym and relaxing treatment rooms.
Spa package with fizz
Valid until April, this Big Deal is for one or two people to bliss out on a spa day at the Macdonald Holyrood Hotel.
Guests will get an Elemis Couture Touch treatment which consists of a deep tissue back massage and a superfood facial plus a glass of Prosecco each and use of the leisure facilities.
This offer is available Sunday to Friday. Complimentary robes & slippers for the day is part of the package.
After the chilled Prosecco has been poured and sipped, guests can lie back and enjoy their superfood facial, which is designed to leave skin feeling smoother and more hydrated.
The facial will be followed by a freestyle deep tissue back massage for total relaxation.
Next, it is time to lie back in the heated pool and let the rest of the day drift away in style…
Ultra romantic present
If you would like to see your loved one’s face light up brighter than a shooting star this year, then why not surprise them with a spa voucher as a Valentine’s Day gift?
And while this pamper session can be for one person, we’re betting that they would love it if you went along with them as well.
