Hi there lovebirds, did you know that it is now less than two weeks until the day of love… Oh yes, we are of course talking about Valentine’s Day (see our full guide here). And if Cupid’s arrow has hit you and you are looking to impress your loved one this year, we have the perfect list of gifts for you… No stress, no hassle and they will get your other half swooning all over the place (and hopefully have you in the good books for the rest of the year).
So throw around the rose petals and say “I love you” with these amazing pressies:
A Hampering For Some Love
Stay with us here, these aren’t just any old hampers. You know, like the ones that your parents used to get… These are hampers with a difference! For example you can get the Pamper Gift Hamper for just over $80 and shower your lady friend with a selection of delectable biscuits, cookies and pastries, a fruity bottle of Brown Brother’s Riesling Rose, plus some gorgeous beauty products to top it all off.
Feel like going all out? Well then dabble in the Little Luxury Hamper and she will receive Moet Champagne, a collection of sweets as well as MOR body butter, honey nectar soap and hand cream. Now that sounds like our kind of jam.
But lets get real here, it isn’t only the men buying for the women these days… So for the man in your life, there is the perfect ‘Manper’ – The United Nations of Beer Hamper. It comes with six beers including Becks, Stella Artois, Peroni and more. He’ll also get some awesome treats to eat with the beers. He can enjoy honey smoked BBQ & wild thyme chips, peanuts and green olives. Hell, we even like the sound of this ‘Manper’…
And if your boyfriend or husband is a bit more on the sophisticated side, maybe you could try the Red Wine & BBQ Hamper. This hamper is filled with savoury delights such as beef jerky and gourmet crackers, a 2012 Pepperjack Shiraz as well as some pantry fillers including BBQ Spice Rub and Balsamic and snag jam. Errr, yes please!
All of the hamper goodness can be found in one convenient place (we love convenient), just head to The Hamper Emporium.
Who desn’t love a little getaway? And we all know that this great state of ours has some absolutely spectacular weekend away hotspots. Pack your bags, load up a romantic road trip playlist and get on the road. Grab a bite to eat at a cute and homely country-side café, stop off and grab some yummy goodies at one of Adelaide’s markets such as the Strathalbyn Country Market or the Stansbury Seaside Markets. Then, settle in for the night at a cosy country house or a luxurious beach house. If you’re stuck on where to go, definitely check out Stayz, a great website for all your accommodation needs. Don’t forget to pack the chocolates, candles and champagne to really make it a night to remember! Oh la la.
If you want to take Sentimental Road, why not get a special photo gift. Shutterfly is a unique website that offers personalised items. And there are plenty of options to choose from. Your first option is glassware, which you can get etched with your lover’s name or both your names and a heart in the middle. Cute. If your partner is a tech geek, choose your favourite photo and put it on a custom iPhone case! Of course, it doesn’t stop with phones, you can put your photo on candles, puzzles, pillows and quilts, and even jewellery or charms. Whatever the gift, your partner will definitely have a smile on their face when you give it to them.
Happy Valentine’s Day lovers!
