It happens every year.. just as you’re getting on top of your credit card bill from your Christmas gift spending, Valentine’s day is here to put a dent in it again. Lucky for you, I have gathered my best gift ideas for him and her to ease some of the burden, have a read below.
Valentine’s Day gift ideas for her:
Say you love her with flowers. Flowers are always a great choice on Valentine’s day in my opinion. Interflora and Flowers For Everyone have gorgeous options and deliver Australia wide. For a classic option, choose red roses. After something a little different? A beautiful bouquet of blush, rose and soft cream florals offer a different romantic mood. Think feminine blooms such as tulips and orchids, mixed in with magnolia and eucalyptus.
You can’t go wrong when it comes to gifting clothing or accessories on Valentine’s Day. A lovely clutch, piece of jewellery or silk top is something different to unwrap and perfect for her to wear on date night. For the classic girl, Myer has a great range of brands to choose from. For the cool girl, The Iconic is the one and Forever New is perfect for the feminine girl in your life. Not sure about sizing or taste? Opt for a gift card instead.
Although it may be cliché to gift lingerie on Valentine’s Day, I can tell you that no girl would be disappointed to receive a set. I recommend staying safe and choosing an elegant black lace bra and bottoms. Sizing can be an issue, so unless you can have a sneaky look through her underwear drawer, ensure she can exchange the pieces. Bendon Lingerie has lovely lingerie and a great collection of red lingerie if you are wanting a vibrant hue. For larger chested ladies, Brava is the place to shop.
Surprise her with a gift she’s not expecting – cosmetics! A pretty lipstick, face mask or her favourite moisturising cream is a lovely gift. Shop Sephora’s own brand of makeup and skincare or search through the many brands they keep under their roof. For the eco-friendly girl, Flora and Fauna is one I just discovered. Everything sold on their site is natural, vegan and cruelty-free!
Valentine’s Day gift ideas for him:
For the man in your life, gifts are a little bit easier to source. Well at least there is less risk of getting it wrong – sorry boys, women are typically fussier. Here are some ideas I think he would love to receive on Valentine’s Day.
Other than food, a way to a man’s heart is through alcohol. Am I right? For the beer lover, surprise him with a collection of boutique beers from Dan Murphy’s. For the wine connoisseur, pick him a mixed dozen from Get Wines Direct.
No one can ever have enough books and that goes for him as well! Whether it’s a book from Dymocks or The Book Depository, or an audiobook from Kobo.com, he’ll love it. A gift card goes a long way as well. That way he can select a book he’s in the mood for.
Not only reserved for females, men can enjoy good grooming product and skincare too. Surprise him with a luxe men’s product from Mr Porter or update his skincare routine with something from ManKind, a site dedicated to male grooming.
Whisk him away on staycay in your city and enjoy his Valentine’s day gift together. Book a night at a hotel, dine out at a restaurant, enjoy drinks on a rooftop bar and have a romantic night exploring your own city. Find some hotel ideas here.
