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 Centre Place.

1 | Coffee mug Whitcoulls, 2 | Bracelet Precious Metals and Diamonds, 3 | Handcare gift set Farmers, 4 | Slip Farmers, 5 | Shiseido skincare Farmers, 6 | Book & chocolate hearts 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 Whitcoulls and fill it with his favourite treats.

1 | Playstation controller EB Games, 2 | Cologne Farmers, 3 | Docking station Acquisitions, 4 | Book & chocolate hearts Whitcoulls, 5 | Beard balm Barkers, 6 | Ring Michael Hill Jeweller.


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 | Drink bottle Stirling Sports, 2 | Ring Michael Hill Jeweller, 3 | Bag Strandbags, 4 | Candles Acquisitions, 5 | Shoes Merchant 1948.


All that’s left is to plan a great date night.  Go retro with a trip to the arcade, kicking off the evening at Funzone.  Then, head out onto Bryce Street to try the latest eatery, Up In Smoke.

 Happy Valentine’s Day lovers!
