Be My Bearwood Valentine?

With less than a week to go until Valentine Day and because the welovebearwood team are old romantics at heart we've put together a guide on how to buy, look good for and entertain your sweetheart.

Here goes: 

 Adopt a Tree

As Viv Cole, Warley Woods Trust Manager, explains...

"Still wondering about getting your loved one something for Valentine's Day? What about adopting a tree at Warley Woods. No guilty calories. You don't need to care for it afterwards - just a lovely warm romantic glow? Adoption forms are on the Trust's website on the leaflets and documents page. There are suggested trees to adopt to make it easy - as you only have a few days to go but you can adopt a tree that means something special for you."

 Buy a Begonia

Don't do tacky this year with a bunch of red roses brought from the local garage, visit Andrew's Plants in Bearwood Indoor Market and buy a beautiful begonia instead.  Andrew will even wrap them up for you.

Make a pendant necklace  

We love homemade pressies so why not make a pendant necklace for your valentine this year.
There's a great selection of loveheart beads at Bead Savvy in Bearwood Indoor Market so you've got all weekend to get busy designing.  Have a word with Stefan too and he'll give you some great jewellery making tips too!

Colour Your Hair   

Red is the colour of love so this Valentine Day's why not go all out and get your hair coloured bright red!

Sezer Antonio have got a half price sale on all hair colour treatments so get your appointment booked today.

Eat some pasta

Casa Italia are taking reservations for Valentine's Day and as pasta is the food of love it seems the perfect place to wine and dine this Valentine's Day. 

Read some love poems or Dinosaurs Love Underpants to each other

Read some love poems or Dinosaurs Love Underpants (much more our style!) to each other. NX Books have books for sale to cover everybody's tastes.

Listen to some jazz

Nothing gets you more in the mood for a little lurrrrrrving than some jazz and where better to hear it than the Silvershine Jazz Club at Bearwood Corks eh? On the night itself you can hear the legendary Blue Notes dish up a Valentine's Night special. 

So, there you have it. Seven perfect treats for the sexy man/woman/ladyboy in your life and you needn't even stray over the Hagley Road. Enjoy! xx
