LOVE: 7 Valentine’s Day ideas for romantics

09 February 2016

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, have you got something special for your other half yet?

If you’re one to get stuck when trying to choose something for your man, we have some sassy Valentine’s Day ideas that will make your lover melt!

1. Visit Lovers Lane at Westfield Helensvale

If you are on the Gold Coast, take a stroll through Lovers Lane at Westfield Helensvale and put the perfect finishing touches on your gifts for your hot spunk! There’s a calligrapher, a gift-wrapping service and even a florist, making it the perfect spot for picking up a last minute gift and gaining some romantic inspiration.

WHEN: Friday 12th to Sunday 14th Feb
TIME: 11am to 2pm
LOCATION: Westfield Helensvale (near Kmart)

2. Grab something sweet for your sweetheart

You know what they say – the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach! So why not spread the love with some scrumptious baked treats. Make your own, or keep in simple and buy something yummy! Mrs Fields has a great selection - from Red Velvet cookies in heart shaped tins ($19.95) to personalised cookie cards ($19.95) and cookie cakes ($39.95), every sweet tooth will be happy.

3. Spoil your man with a sophisticated treat

If you’ve got a man of style (or a man who NEEDS a little bit of style), some quality accessories can go a long way. Buckle 1922 (available at Myer and David Jones) has a great range of cool bowties, classy cufflinks and genuine leather wallets and belts, and is a firm favourite go-to in the KOTC/KITC office when looking for a boy gift.

4. Book a weekend away on a luxury parents-only escape

Do you and your man deserve a bit of time out together? There are so many luxurious retreats in South East Queensland where you can get back to nature, enjoy magnificent food and put your feet up, so why not book yourselves in for a long weekend? Check out our luxury parents-only escapes here.

5. Create some candlelit romance

There is nothing more seductive than candlelight, so why not create the ultimate ambience and fill a room with a few candles (just be careful of the fire risk). The Bowery has this stylish gift box of three candles scented with gorgeous fragrances: French Pear, Lotus Flower and Sweet Pea and Jasmine, which would create a beautiful and luxurious space, especially if you are staying home for the night.

6. Have a lovers' cuppa!

For the cutest of cute gifts, the 'Tea for Two' or 'Lovers' Mug' is two half mugs that share one saucer, perfect if you want to share a cup of tea or coffee with your loved one! You could even get one for your best friend!

7. Live it up with a Champagne picnic

Why not arrange a romantic picnic with Champagne for your sexy buddy? Simple yet thoughtful, it's a great idea for the whole family. And if you are really wanting to add a bit of 'spesh' to the occasion, this Champagne carrier (complete with two Champagne flutes) will be sure to impress, making any beach/park/river/garden picnic a bit posh. All you need to do is add your favourite bottle of bubbles!
