Valentine’s Day can be filled with gifts, dates and bills that are bound to rack up to more than you had planned – if you had anything planned at all! But if not, we have your back, boo. We’ve combined an outing and gift all in one, with these exclusive COSMO and Secret Getaway offers just for you, our readers. Hurry, the number of offers are limited!
The best part is that your gift is a gift to not just your special someone (whether that’s your BFF, mom, bae or yourself), it’s also a gift to someone in need. Five percent of each voucher is donated to a revolving selection of charities. At the moment it is Learning in Reach, an educational outreach focusing on Lavender Hill at present. So spread the love with these date vouchers:
You don’t even need to leave the city for this one. The name says it all – a cosy, chic and cute rooftop cinema above the Grand Daddy Hotel offers screenings under the night sky, right in the heart of the CBD. This offer comes with a ‘welcome drink, sweets, popcorn as well as a gourmet picnic basket filled with tasty treats’.
PS: V-Day itself falls on a Wednesday this year, so go big on the weekend, with a screening of The Heat on Sunday (18 February) or keep the voucher for a date night on any of the other screening nights (we’re already amped for Moulin Rouge on 7 March)! Arrive early to get the best seats. Remember, to reserve in advance and to pre-order your gourmet picnic basket.
Valid: 6 months
You can also book a ticket for one – including a welcome drink, sweets and popcorn – for when you feel like catching a movie, without someone constantly asking you ‘What happened? What did he say?’ or the worst: the person who tries to guess the whole plot in the first 10 minutes. Plus, you won’t have to share your popcorn 😉
This boutique estate boasts a ‘distinct French Provençal appeal’ with ‘old-school vintage allure’. If the magical French-inspired setting and flair wasn’t enough to pique your curiosity, the menu is so sophisticated, your pinkie will ache after holding it in the air all day (which will be very hard not to do).
Valid: 1 year
PS: The Morrells Boutique Estate boasts accommodation, with seven bedrooms that are just as decadent as this breakfast – why stop with just dessert? Treat yo’self to services like a romantic turn-down, fireplace, massages, spa amenities, a mini bar and more. Did we mention that dinner is included? Well, it is, and so is breakfast the next day. Can you say #Round2!
Valid: 1 Feb – 31 March 2018
This offer encompasses a three-course meal* (either lunch or dinner) for two right on the beach – and we do mean right on the beach, in the damn sand – or, if weather does not permit, on the magnificent deck offering 180-degree ocean views, with a bottle of wine** (soft drinks/coffee and tea are included, too).
PS: Booking is essential so hurry if you’re booking for Friday or Saturday!
Valid: 1 year
Port Elizabeth (Surrounds):
Just an hour out of PE, this private game-reserve safari day package is the ideal way for the adventurous couple to spend their special day, or to take your animal- and nature-loving loved one along on. The fun starts from the moment you arrive with a welcome drink ‘before being whisked away into the African bush to go on a thrilling search for the finest in South African wildlife.’ I mean, yes, of course that sounds amazing.
After that, you and +1 are served a traditional African Boma lunch before being whisked off once again for a last drive. For a full list of the day’s activities, read here.
Valid: 1 year
