Valentine’s Day is less than a month away so if you haven’t sorted out what you’re giving your partner (a coupon for one free back massage doesn’t count), take a breather and scroll through our list below.
If you’re still in the honeymoon phase of a new relationship and not sure what would be an appropriate gift for something so new, take a look at our list of Gifts To Give Your New Partner When You Have No Idea.
We’ve got you covered.
You might want to keep it simple or just find a nice card to go along with your amazing gift. Either way, a handpainted card will go a long way, especially with a sincere message within. Put away your paints, because Elm Paper have enough Valentine’s themed cards to cover all bases.
Is your partner a bit of a whiz in the kitchen? Serious question, because this gift idea could go awry if your partner has a track record for kitchen disasters. If you know you’re in the clear, we’d recommend Chrissy Teigen’s cookbook, Cravings: Recipes for All the Food You Want to Eat for two reasons:
1) The food is droolworthy.
2) Who better to learn from this V-Day than one half of the world’s cutest couple?
Did you really think we’d make a Valentine’s gift guide without flowers as an option? Don’t be fooled; these colourful blooms are still a great gift for that special person in your life, and with so many talented florists out there, you can be sure your bouquet will be anything but a boring bunch of half-dead roses. Check out our list of 8 fabulous florists for your fancy bouquet needs.
Price: $100 minimum
Food is the way to a person’s heart, so why not treat your loved one to a fantastic feed? (Especially if the cookbook idea is out of the question). Walsh Bay Kitchen is perfect for a romantic dinner for two, especially with its harbour side location. Make the night a little more special with a show at the Roslyn Packer Theatre right next door.
Price: Around $120 for two people
A Romantic Getaway
The ultimate gift if you’re really trying to impress or treat your love. QT in Port Douglas has a Valentine’s Day offer at their modern resort lounge bar, Estilo. Once you’ve finished feasting on their delicious menu, why not stay for a few days more?
Price: Minimum $200

A Record Player
Concert tickets are always a solid gift choice, but they’re a little overdone. If your partner is a music lover, why not invest in a record player and find some of their favourite albums on vinyl? The sound quality is brilliant and they’ll love knowing that you remembered their favourite albums (even if you don’t agree).
Price: Between $200 and $600
You know that your partner deserves a little relaxation (or you could hint to your partner that that’s exactly what you need), so try a gift voucher for a spa day, like the ones offered by Langhana Spa. Or if you or your partner have been considering a little retouching, try one of Face Plus Medispa‘s many facial and laser treatments and start 2018 with a fresh look. You can’t go wrong with a little TLC.
Price: Spa – Anywhere between $50 and $200. Cosmetic – Anywhere between $50 and $2,500.
This one might seem light years away from the rest of this list, but hear us out. Stargazing is always romantic and if your partner is a star lover, they won’t know how to thank you for the perfect gift (personally, I’m still waiting for one). Take the telescope out to the beach for a late night stargazing session if you’re looking to up the romance (or if it’s a bit out of your price range, head over to the Observatory to relive that scene from La La Land).
Price: Between $150 and $8,000
