I can buy myself flowers…!  but this Valentine’s Day, I’d rather not.

Valentine’s Day is coming in fast.  And while the tried and true flowers and chocolates are always there as a backup, one of the best ways you can show a bit of love this February 14 is by grabbing a gift that goes beyond the ordinary and highlights how much you know and care about the recipient.  Think items that they’ll use often (remembering you every time!), that make their life better (just like you!) or spoil them with luxe treats they covet but may not buy for themselves.


As always… ladies first.  Here are a few of my favourite finds from The Plaza.

1 | Slip Bras n Things, 2 | Fragrance Farmers, 3 | Gift set The Body Shop®, 4 | Ring Michael Hill Jewellers, 5 | Book Whitcoulls.


The guys can be tricky to buy for – especially if the relationship is fairly new.  A few of my faves are below – but another great option is to grab a giftbox from Enjoy or Whitcoulls and fill it with his favourite treats.

1 | Playstation controller EB Games, 2 | Cologne Farmers, 4 | Wallet & belt Tarocash, 5 | Activity tracker JB Hi Fi.


Shopping for your galentine – or, better still, yourself?  No excuse needed – but gratefully accepted.  Treat yourself or your bestie with these – all on my list!

1| Shiseido Skincare Farmers, 3 | Key Rings Kmart, 4 | Book Whitcoulls, 5 | Shoes Overland.


Pre-planning is key to the best date night this Valentine’s Day.  Pick up some mood lighting (candles or fairy lights) ahead of time then head into JB Hi-fi to pick up a movie that reminds you of how you met.  Collect a takeaway dinner from the foodcourt and head on home.

 Happy Valentine’s Day lovers!
