Lost for things to do this Valentines day? Even if your single you will definitely not be short of things to do because in Dubai we even have anti-valentines nights! Here is a 411 of some of my favourite things going on with gift ideas and exclusive offers for him and her
My favourite one stop shop for sunglasses, Sunglass Hut
, is having an avant-première of the new Ray-Ban Full Metal Round until February 14th. Two gorgeous colourways will be exclusively available at Sunglass Hut before they hit other retailers so if you are a sun-glass fanatic like me, get them first. A stunning combination of brown and shiny gold with gold-pink mirrored lenses and shiny black with polar green lenses. I absolutely love the pink ones!
My Little Pleasures has announced the launch of its first box of 2017 simplifying the way to express love. If you are stuck for something to get your partner, why not get her this:This Valentine, the perfect gift is just a few clicks away. The carefully selected products in My Little Pleasures’ most recent box offer something to everyone. You literally subscribe online and pay 199 AED and the box arrives to your door! I think it is such a great idea as people are always stuck for gift ideas or you could just gift yourself haha.
The box contains Terre de Lumière Eau de Parfum by L’Occitane with its honey, lavender and notes of musk. Additionally, Pivoine Sublime face cream and Pivoine Flora hand cream also by L’Occitane. M.A.C cosmetics is as well featured in the box with two must-have products this Valentines, the Dazzleglass/Creamsheen Glass and the Studio Nail Lacquer. From Palmer’s we have a set of their signature body lotions and finally two more surprises from My Little Pleasures’ collectables. Seriously what more could a girl want?!
I am sure you are familiar with the hair salon Jet-Set and one of my favourite nail salons N-Bar. They are celebrating ‘loving yourself’ this Valentine’s Day so get your girls together or spoil yourself with exclusive offers for the whole month of February.
If you top up your colour and highlights during February, you will receive a complimentary Kerastase Hair Treatment throughout the month of love. The luxe care treatment soothes, replenishes and re-beautifies luscious locks so you can go from salon to shopping.
Beauty salon, N.Bar is celebrating with the ‘PS I Love Me’ package launched specially for Valentine’s Day and running through the year. Relax and unwind with three manicures, three pedicures and three head, neck and shoulder massages at a reduced cost of AED 490, instead of AED 585 making it a perfect present for a friend or partner.
Men also love being pampered and its a great way to get your man groomed to perfection! The Art of Shaving has been a creator and purveyor of the finest shaving and grooming products for men. Buy any TAOS product this February for a chance to win 1000 AED worth of gift vouchers. Luxury Club members will receive double points on
purchases made between February 6th and 28th. The Art of Shaving is exclusively available at selected Paris Gallery stores in the UAE.

Valentines/Anti-Valentines night out:
Looking for somewhere to go on your date night? The W Dubai is having a Valentine’s Day brunch and the poolside bar Wet Deck will be throwing an anti-Valentine’s Day party where for Dhs295, from 8pm to midnight, guests will get unlimited drinks and canapés. They have something for everyone! If you wanna avoid all the PDA you can just head to Tribeca for an Anti-Valentines party or even to the single ladies night in Delphine in H-hotel, who knows you might just find your prince charming.
For the cheesy couples amongst you, Level 43 is having a Prom night so dust off your prom-dress and head to this rooftop bar with your date for the evening. One lucky couple will even be crowned Prom King and Queen. The ticket price also includes a three-course set menu as well as a bottle of grape to share.
