Small Business Valentines Day Gift Guide

It is now less than a month until Valentine’s day, and while we cannot celebrate like normal (I feel I have said this so many times!), we still can try and make the most of it. Usually Shaun and I would perhaps go for a meal or stay home and cook a slightly more special tea. And there is nothing I would love more than to go out for a meal right now!

This year, since the special day falls on a Sunday, I think your plan is to order a Sunday Lunch and go for a long walk. I have just done a blog post all about places doing Sunday lunches which you can view HERE. Or you could always plan a really lovely date night for the two of you!

I wanted to use this blog to shout out some of my favourite Northeast and Small businesses that I have tried or admired for a while. So here is my Valentines day gift guide with 40 businesses featured, and I hope you find something here for your SO.

I feel like this is an easy one for this year! So many of us cannot go out for the meal we would like too, so order one in! I have two more blog posts about takeout restaurants and cafes in Sunderland and Seaham.
