If your partner is expecting a big romantic gesture but you just need to have ten minutes to yourself, between working from home and other boring house work chores, before you are ready to begin the weekend of love; consider turning your house into a treasure map! Buy a few small presents, potentially with a cryptic clue or cute message and send them about the house looking for their gifts. This works especially well if you have children too, why not let them join in!
There are many small keepsakes you can buy that are inexpensive, such as their favourite picture in a lovely frame, a book with a hidden message, Morse code bracelets and of course the firm favourite of cuddly toys. Browse our gift section for cashback and see what fun things you can come up with to give yourself that little bit of extra time to relax.
