Date Night Swiss Chalet Style & DIY Hamper Gift Giveaway

Date Night in a Swiss Chalet


Pack a hamper with goodies, present to your loved one, cook up a fondue, cheese and/or chocolate, fill a flask with a hot toddy and snuggle up under a new throw, by the fire, with the candles lit and share your dreams. Retire to bed with a new duvet. Sound like the recipe for the perfect romantic evening? Today I’m sharing the love with some lovely ideas for a date night Swiss chalet style, I also have some products to giveaway to get your hamper off to a great start.

I love it when lost of great ideas come together. I’ve been exploring ways to bring a little bit of hygge to life at home, I’ve also been drawn to the Chalet chic trend. At home Mr A and I have rediscovered the fun of cooking together and cooked up a Date Night in Cairo feast with a kit I bought him for Christmas. Then the team at Wayfair created some wonderful printable tags to adorn and inspire your own Valentine’s gift hampers, they also happened to mention the team in Berlin had been out for fondue. Then it hit me, how about a Date Night in a Swiss chalet?


Date Night Swiss Chalet Style


A roaring fire, faux fur throws and cushions, chocolate fondue, candles, snuggling up with a loved one while the snow falls outside. What’s not to love about this Valentine’s date night? I found some gorgeous items which you could put together in a hamper, along with the printable labels Wayfair have created.

I love the idea of a Valentine’s gift that is part thoughtful experience that keeps giving, and part items which become part of your life at home. Definitely beats an expensive meal out. Some of the products are amazing value too, the Chocolate Fondue set is £12.99, the stag duvet is £26.49 for a double. The stag would more usually be found hanging on a Swiss chalet wall, but as an animal lover I have interpreted it as a symbol of 21st century masculinity, and therefore a passable interiors gift for the man in my life.
