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 The Base.

1 | Slip Bras N Things, 2 | Fragrance Farmers, 3 | Bath Bombs Lush, 4 | Bear The Warehouse, 5 | Bracelet Sense & Wonder, 6 | Photo frame Acquisitions.


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 Enjoy or Whitcoulls and fill it with his favourite treats.

1 | Headphones Noel Leeming, 2 | Wallet & Belt Strandbags, 3 | Colonge Farmers, 4 | Docking Station Acquisitions, 5 | Book Whitcoulls.


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 | Satin Pillowcases Cotton On Body, 2 | Initial Coffee Mug Acquisitions, 3 | Eye Shadow Palette Farmers, 4 | Kobo E-reader Notebook Heathcote Appliances, 5 | Mini Backpack & Drink Bottle Stirling Sports.


All that’s left is to plan a great date night.  If you’re eating out this Valentine’s Day, make sure you book early to get a great spot at at Foundation. While you’re here, catch one of the great movies currently playing at Hoyts. Great eats, great drinks, AND great entertainment all in one place – win!

 Happy Valentine’s Day lovers!
