It is that time of the year again, the so-called “month of love”. So what is there to do in Cape Town on this…day of madness? Most of us don’t want to spend our whole salary on an expensive, 2 course dinner, with food that we can’t even pronounce. Or worse: book yourself and your partner in at the spa, only to find that EVERYONE had the same idea.

So, here is my top 5 list of really sweet, fun things to do on Valentine’s:

1. Chocolate-tastings.
Where: Waterford Wine Estate.
Cost: R60.
When: Monday to Friday, between 9am and 5pm and on Saturdays, between 11am and 3pm.
Blauwklippen Road | Stellenbosch | Cape Town | +27 (0)21 880 5303

2. Ice-skating!
Where: Grand West Casino
Cost: Around R80 for two people
Tel : 27 21 5352260

3. Beach or forest picnics.
Where: Camps Bay, Clifton, Signal Hill, Chapmans Peak, Kirstenbosch and other wine-farms
Cost: I think you can easily get away with R200 worth of food

4. A night at the theatre!
Where: Artscape, Baxter, The Bay, Athol Fugard etc.
Cost: Anything from R80 pp

5. Stay at home, cook food for your lady, give her a message and spoil her with chocolates and a candle-lit bathtub!
Cost: Priceless.

So there, no excuses for not having a good time with a budget.

And here is something, just to get you in the mood:

Stand a chance to win a Valentine’s Hamper containing:
Lindt Chocoltes
Woolworths Voucher
and two theatre tickets
to the value of R300!
