Valentine's Day Inspiration, Starts Here At Meadowhall

Whether you’re treating a partner, friend, parents, children or another special person in your life, Meadowhall has all you need to help share the love this Valentine’s Day.

From a romantic meal and movie to candles, chocolate and more, here’s our top pick of Valentine’s ideas for 2022.


Spending quality time together

If you’re looking for things to do on Valentine’s Day, a date night at the movies is always a good idea. Whether you’re celebrating with your partner or planning a Galentine’s or Palentine’s mate date, Vue Cinema has films for everyone, including Marry Me – the new rom-com musical starring Jennifer Lopez and Owen Wilson – which is released on 11th February.

Or head to Funstation to get competitive and see who comes up trumps on a range of games – a great idea for a first date or to keep the kids entertained!

Finish your evening with a visit to one of our restaurants which offer plenty of choice for Valentine’s dinners and drinks. From tasty curries, steak and chips, indulgent pastas, mouth-watering burgers, to tacos and burrito bowls, there’s something to suit everyone’s taste. Caffè Rizzoli also serves the best Italian inspired dishes, including charcuterie, seafood, and decadent desserts, alongside a glass of bubbly. Get in touch with restaurants such as Café Massarella, Carluccio’s or Sienna Bar & Kitchen located inside FLANNELS directly to find out more and reserve a table.

Classic Valentine's gifts

Chocolates and flowers are popular choices that bring a smile at any time of year, and especially on Valentine’s Day.

Something extra special

There’s plenty of extra special gifts to pick up at Meadowhall for your nearest and dearest.

Find a luxury watch at Goldsmiths or Beaverbrooks, a range of statement designer clothes and accessories at stores such as Tommy Hilfiger, Ted Baker and FLANNELS. Or why not find a piece of unique bespoke Valentine’s jewellery customised to your design from Austen & Blake. Pandora also has a range of charms to help you personalise your gift or find a pair of matching bracelets or rings for you and your loved one. 

Find some of the best perfumes and aftershaves from brands including Jo Malone, Yves Saint Laurent, Maison Margiela Replica, and Le Labo or find a pair of new shoes from designers such as Jimmy Choo, Stella McCartney, Alexander McQueen, all of which can be found in FLANNELS.  

Make getting up that little bit easier with a new coffee machine from Nespresso – and don’t forget to keep their pod supply topped up!

Or if your special someone isn’t much of a coffee drinker, the Hotel Chocolat Velvetiser is a must for chocoholics!

Or if you’re still stuck for ideas, a Meadowhall Gift Card is the perfect gift for your loved ones, letting them choose exactly what they want. Meadowhall Gift Cards can be purchased in centre from our customer service desks, Customer Service and Collection store and any of our self-service kiosks. You can also buy them online on our Gift Card website.


Tech they’ll love

AirPods or headphones are a great idea for people who love to listen to music on a commute, run or just for fun. Look out for those with noise-cancelling features to help enjoying music without interruption and – more practically – to help if they’re joining calls in a busy house while working from home.

A new or upgraded fitness watch from Apple is also a great idea to help fitness enthusiasts of all levels track their daily exercise, workouts and steps.

And if you’re looking for Valentine’s gamer gifts, Game and Argos stock a wide range for every taste, with some new releases including Call of Duty Vanguard, Battlefield 2042 and Just Dance 2022.


Or how about a unique gift…

And if nothing has taken your fancy just yet, a unique Valentine’s Day gift that feels very personal is sure to be a hit.

Whether it’s a new vinyl from a favourite artist at HMV, a book from Waterstones or WHSmith, or something related to a particular hobby or interest they have, like a love of all things local, Lego or Harry Potter; the LEGO store, The Shop Under the Stairs, or the Independent Sheffield Store has you covered – a great way of showing them how well you know them.

You could also print out one of your favourite photos together at Boots or Max Speilmann with a frame from TK Maxx or Wilko. Or look out for matching mugs which are also cute additions to the home.

For a unique and practical gift that they are sure to love, take a trip to Meadowhall’s new ‘Style Suite’. Treat them to an appointment or voucher, where our experienced personal stylist Peter Kane will get them looking and feeling their best. View the range of services offered.


And don’t forget to give yourself some love

Valentine’s Day is all about sharing the love, and that should include yourself too! So, if you’ve had your eye on something new for your wardrobe or a special addition to the home, now’s the perfect time to treat yourself and get it.

Or give yourself some love with a pamper evening with face masks, bath bombs, creams and more. Head to LUSH, Rituals or The Body Shop for some inspiration, and pick up a new book from Waterstones to prepare for the perfect relaxing evening.
