Whether you are part of a happy couple or single and satisfied, Valentine’s Day is a great excuse to celebrate love whether with your other half, your best friend or family.

Here is our Bloomsbury guide to the very best and simple ways to show your loved ones how much you care:

Surprise with flowers
• It might seem like a cliché, but receiving flowers from someone special is sure to put a smile on a loved one’s face. Orchidya, Store Street’s boutique flower shop, has created a variety of beautiful bouquets for the occasion – choose from luxurious red roses, pale pink orchids and hydrangeas or a happy combination of zesty orange, pink and yellow blooms.

Share a delicious dinner
• Share your love for food, wine and excellent conversation over a well-prepared meal with someone you love on February 14th. We’d recommend one of Olivelli’s sharing starters, followed by the Sicilian favourite chargrilled swordfish and a bottle of Prosecco.

Arrange a cinema evening out
• With dark, cold days and nights, winter is made for movies. Get cosy at Curzon Bloomsbury and enjoy one of the most recent releases, such as La La Land and Jackie, or watch powerful documentaries such as The Eagle Huntress or Tower.
