In case you’ve forgotten, Valentines’ Day is less than a week away. If you’re like us and tend to leave everything to the last minute, don't panic! Instead of spending your weekend treasure hunting through the corners of every shopping centre, we’ve got a few present ideas that’ll perfectly say, 'I Love You'. Relax, kick your feet up and start planning what you'll be writing on the card...
XXL Teddy Bear
Take a leaf out of Taylor Lautner’s book from Valentines Day, when he gifts Taylor Swift with a GINORMOUS teddy bear. Although it’s a little impractical and kind of like having another human sized figure in the household, boy was that girl happy when she received it. It’s the perfect thing to say ‘I love you Beary much’.
Personalised Phone Case
A MAISON de SABRÉ phone case has been on the top of our gift list since FOREVER. If there’s one present our friends know they are getting for their birthday’s, it’s one of these. There are six colours to choose from which you can then personalise with their monogrammed initials in either gold or silver. The phone case has a pebble-grain outer with a soft velvet inner liner. An added bonus is that it arrives already gift wrapped. For someone who’s present wrapping always seems a little uneven, we are super-thankful for this!
A Mixed Tape
Although a ‘tape’ is a bit old school, a CD works just as well! Making a compilation of your better half’s favourite songs shows how much you know them. Adding in a couple of your own too will give them some new songs to jam out to while stuck in traffic on the way home from work! Through red lights, idiot drivers and the no-indicators - they'll be thinking of you the whole time.
Long Stemmed Roses
It’s Valentines Day – you can’t look past roses (especially long-stemmed ones). Fleurus Flowers on the Gold Coast are your floral saviours when it comes to this, stocking 100cm long-stemmed roses for Valentines Day only. It is very rare to find roses with stems this long, so we recommend you order early as they only have 50 DOZENS. Available in a variety of colours, you can purchase 2 dozen for $490 or 1 dozen for $200. Buy now, and thank us later.
Don’t roll your eyes at us! You haven’t heard the fun bits yet! Socks…. which are customised with your face on them! Nothing says ‘Be Mine’ than handing over a present with your cheesy grin on it. The guys over at PupSocks are our go-to sock designers. There are even custom BaeSocks which feature hearts on them – perfect for V-Day!
Otherwise known as ‘doughquets’, these bouquets are perfect for any sweet tooth. Putting a twist on your classic box of chocolates, there are 3 special Valentines doughquets to choose from or you could order one of Sweety’s 10 treat boxes. Our ultimate favourite would have to be the ‘Tella You Love ‘em Doughquet’ featuring a dozen of The Doughnut Bar Mini Nutella Balls, Mini Nutella jars, Lindt Lindor’s and 2 x Coronas/Beer (or 1 x wine).
Blue French Horn
The perfect present for any How I Met Your Mother fan is the symbolic Blue French Horn. Don't feel the need to steal one of these from a French restaurant, you’ll be able to find a few different versions online! Check out these Blue French Horn Statuettes or the Decorative Blue French Horn. Just don’t forget to finish the present with an ‘I would have stolen you a whole orchestra’.
Peter Alexander Pyjamas
It was love at first sight with Peter’s Valentine’s collection. Whether you’re a big spoon or a little spoon, a sweetheart or a heartbreaker, Peter Alexander have PJs to make this romantic season a perfect one! With a 101 Dalmatians theme, there are PJ’s available for every way of life. FYI – they also have super-cute matching His and Hers PJ’s and eye masks!
