11 Things To Get You Luurved Up This Valentine’s Day In London


There’s something for everyone happening this Valentine’s weekend in London. Whether you’re loved up, single and ready to mingle, somewhere in between or simply avoiding relationships at all costs, Funzing have a huge variety of interesting and incredibly fun things to do in the city. So feel the love this February (whether it’s for your partner, food, wine or… pants.)


1. Sew Your Love a Pair of Boxer Shorts

Don’t buy the standard 3-pack of Calvin’s for your man this Valentine’s day. Instead, go for the more heartfelt option and make a pair of briefs yourself. What better image than seeing your other half stripped down into nothing more than your own handy work? In the 2 hour workshop, you’ll sharpen your needle skills and create boxers from your own choice of fabric (we say the silkier the better!) There are 3 workshops running in Seven Sisters on 7th and 11th February. Tickets are £20.

2. Make an Irresistible Scent


What’s that smell? It’s the smell of love… or will be once you put your time and effort into making a signature scent for your valentine. Funzing are giving you the chance to spend the morning selecting and concocting a smell you can’t resist, the perfect gift for that special someone! You’ll leave with perfume oil, a solid perfume and a spray perfume, all personalised to your taste. Divine. The workshop runs on Saturday 13th and tickets are £29.

3. Chocolate Truffle Making


Running with the homemade theme, if you’re going to give your Valentine something edible this year, it’s far more thoughtful if you’ve made it yourself. And we’re not talking about dodgy cupcakes. Present your other half with a luxurious box of hand-crafted, melt-in-the-mouth truffles and they’ll have a lot to thank you for. Plus, during the workshop there’ll be plenty of chocolate tasting (so it’s a win-win). Go with a lover, go with a friend, go alone… it’s a delectable opportunity you don’t want to miss.

From the moment you arrive you’ll be blindfolded in preparation for a sensual night of tasting. This one is great for bringing either friends or dates and, with all food and drinks included, it’s reasonably priced.

Tickets are £45 a head.

5. Taste the Wines of the World

After spending an incredible 5 hours sipping and learning about the wines of the world, you’ll be well on your way to becoming London’s next top connoisseur (and probably well on your way to bed too).
