15 Perfect Valentine's Day Gift Ideas
Valentine’s Day is that special day of the year when couples around the world celebrate their love and have the opportunity to spoil their partners. Finding an ideal gift for your partner doesn’t have to be difficult. You can make your gift extra special by adding a handmade card with a personal message or favourite poem inside, along with a bunch of fresh flowers or some quality chocolates.
1. A weekend away together
If your partner enjoys travel or you think he or she could do with a well-deserved break, a weekend away together might be the best gift you give them this year. Stores such as Flight Centre and Escape Travel can help you put together an exciting and fun-filled travel package, whether you’re looking for a long-weekend break away in Bali or cheap domestic airfares for a getaway in an interstate destination.
2. An engraved memento
If you have a special heirloom or memento you’d like to gift to your partner, make it extra special by having it engraved with an engraving service such as Michael’s Key and Gifts. Skilled engravers can work on anything from keyrings, makeup boxes, and photo frames, to champagne flasks, cufflinks, and jewellery boxes.
3. A laser treatment session
Laser treatments are extremely popular for many reasons: they can be effective for acne, wrinkles, scars, pigmentation, and hair removal. If your partner enjoys trying out new beauty treatments, why not make the gift of a laser treatment session with a reputable laser treatment centre like Laser Clinics Australia?
4. An afternoon at a nail salon
An afternoon at the nail salon can also make a thoughtful gift, especially if your partner enjoys getting regular manicures and/or pedicures. Professional manicures can last for several weeks without chipping, and nail salons such as Crystal Nails Spa and Oz Nails can do the intricate work required for your partner’s nails to look absolutely fabulous.
5. A hair treatment session
Another gift idea for beauty-conscious partners is a hair treatment session at a reputable hair salon such as Hairhouse Warehouse or Time Hair Design. A hair treatment session can be great for colour touch-ups, a new hairstyle, or a complete hair makeover.
6. A new handbag or briefcase
A stylish new handbag, briefcase, purse, or wallet makes a romantic yet practical Valentine’s gift. No matter your partner’s taste and style, you can easily find something to suit them in a store like Strandbags.
8. A box of stylish accessories
Make your own gift box of stylish accessories for your partner by putting together ties, scarves, hats, socks, and gloves for him; or scarves, hats, and stockings for her. Stores such as Sox Star and The Emporium offer a large collection of accessories, and the friendly staff are always happy to help out with some advice.
9. A bracelet or necklace
A special bracelet or necklace makes a romantic Valentine’s Day gift that can truly help you express your appreciation of your partner without breaking your bank balance. Whether you’re looking for something contemporary or a classic, timeless piece, check out stores such as Diamond Designs and Zamel’s for inspiration.
10. A women-only gym membership
If your wife or girlfriend loves working out, why not consider a membership to a women-only gym? Fitness centres such as Fernwood Gungahlin have an extensive range of exercise classes ranging from Pilates and yoga to studio cycle and Zumba. Complete with childcare facilities and free parking, this is a gift that all active ladies will love.
11. A gourmet food pack
For partners who enjoy cooking, wine, cheeses, and all the good things in life, there’s probably no better gift than a gourmet food pack, and you can buy most of these items in a store such as Woolworths. Use a decorative gift box or basket and fill it with a bottle of wine and gourmet items such as chutney, balsamic vinegar, cheeses, olive oils, chocolate, and crackers.
12. A relaxing massage package
Just about everyone loves massage, so why not treat your partner to an afternoon of relaxing massage at a massage specialist such as Gungahlin Massage or Miracle Therapy? Massage can support well-being, and it could be beneficial for everything from anxiety and headaches to chronic pain.
13. A nutritional supplements package
A nutritional supplements package makes a thoughtful and highly appreciated gift for partners who are fitness enthusiasts. It’s easy to put together a unique package of protein powders and other nutritional products with some advice from stores such as Elite Supplements or Prodigy Performance Nutrition.
14. A skincare gift box
Both men and women can benefit from following a good skincare routine with regular cleansing and moisturising. Stores such as Priceline carry an extensive range of natural and mainstream grooming brands for both men and women.
15. A perfume set
A fragrance set makes a romantic and useful gift, and you can choose from the wide selection that Priceline offers. Put together a collection of three or four fragrances, and include your partner’s favourite go-to fragrance along with some new ones that you think he or she might like.
