Love is in the air – celebrate Valentine’s Day with us!

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and what better way to celebrate the season of love than heading to Rushden Lakes Shopping Centre. Our Northamptonshire shopping and leisure complex is nestled in the heart of nature and offers the perfect combination of places to find gifts as well as things to do to enjoy the 14th February.

Our shops always bring out the best of the season and if you’re after trinkets, sweet treats, plenty of red themed decor and gifts to impress your loved ones, then our stores have you sorted. 

Your gift inspiration

M&S has numerous displays across the store including gorgeous chocolate treats like the gorgeous ‘Walter The Sausage Dog’ and the popular ‘Love You Very Munch’ mini tins which offer a lovely trail mix to enjoy over a movie at home. On the week of Valentine’s your floral gifts will be available with bunches of fresh roses too!

So if you’re looking to impress with a bundle of gifts, they have lots of options including movie night in kits, table decorations if you’re home cooking, arts and crafts if you’re into scrapbooking and themed chocolates in plenty of heart shapes.

Consider pampering your loved one with a Browwow gift voucher, offering the indulgence of a luxurious manicure, a fabulous blow-dry, or a rejuvenating treat such as lashes or brows. 

If you're on the hunt for charming and cuddly tokens of affection, MOOCH beckons with the latest Valentine's Jellycat range—a popular choice for the women in your life as they are always a cute treat to receive.  

Head over to Card Factory for a wide selection of heartfelt cards, wrapping and gift bags, and vibrant balloons to add that extra special touch. When it comes to fragrances, gifts, and your favourite high street brands, Frasers is the go-to destination.

Date-night dining

Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to enjoy a date night, hire the babysitter and treat yourselves. With some beautiful special menus being offered by a number of our outlets, we recommend booking ahead as it’s always a popular evening for our restaurants. We have Chi for your Asian fusion, TGI Fridays for an all American experience, Zizzi’s for Italian as well as Pizza Express for your pizza fix. Wagamamas will be ready to welcome you for your Japanese dishes and Lago Lounge will be taking walk-ins all evening. Heavenly Desserts is a wonderful surprise idea for a sweet date night treat. So you really are spoilt for choice!

To make the most of your date night, why not book a movie at Cineworld as they are holding showings of classic films like 10 Things I Hate About You, Les Mis and Notting Hill as well as their latest releases. You can also enjoy a game of adventure golf to show your competitive streak at Paradise Island Adventure Golf or even get a skate session in at Twisters (inside Flip Out) for an adult only skate session! 

No matter whether you’re looking to spend the evening at home and enjoy some treats from our stores or join us to celebrate, Rushden Lakes has all of your Valentine’s plans sorted.
