Valentines Day – A day of celebrating love.
Valentines Day – The day where roses cost the equivalent of my rent for the week.
Are you done with the go-to V day gifts and want something more than just chocolates, roses, teddy bears and jewellery?
Are you at a point in your life where you want something more meaningful that can have an impact on your entire year, not just one day?!
Are you dating someone who HAS ABSOFREAKINGLUTELYNOIDEAWHATTOGETYOU?
Then this is for you 🙂
Yes ladies, I’ve put together a cheeky list with all the things we ACTUALLY want, versus what our blessed other halves buy/organise last minute.
Share this with them in the most subtle (or obvious) way, and make V day something more than just the highest sales day for florists.
Now this list is not just for couples, but for freakin’ everyone y’all. If you’re single on Valentines Day? HELL YEAH! Go have a self care day or buy yourself a gift that makes you feel damn good about yourself! At the end of the day, Valentines day is a celebration of LOVE, and essentially we should be celebrating that every single day! And if you’ve followed me for long enough, you know that I believe that the most important kind of love, is the one you share with yourself.
Also, feel free to use these gift ideas for Birthdays, Christmas’s and any kind of events!
HERE THEY ARE, 15 V-DAY IDEAS!

Succulents are super low maintenance and can make any bedroom feel super cosy! You can buy these at your local nursery, florist or gold old Flower Power! And gift the gift of flowers that last forever!

A book is by far one of the greatest gifts! I would suggest the following…
“Womens Wellness Wisdom” – Dr Libby
“You are a badass” – Jen Sincerro
“Big Magic” – Elizabeth Gilbert
“The Universe has your back” – Gabrielle Bernstein
“Rise Sister Rise” – Rebecca Campbell

Head on down to your closest health food market and make a box of your other halves favourite organic foods. You can’t go wrong with freshly made nut butter, activated nuts, fresh fruits & some kombucha.
FOR THE GIRL WHO LOVES TEA! [$10-$30]
You can never go wrong with TEA! My favourite brand are Pukka, T2 & English Tea Shop. Each of these brands already make their own assorted gift boxes but you could get really creative and make an assorted box of your own.

FOR THE GIRL WHO LOVES A PICNIC! [$40]
With $40 you can set-up the picnic of the year! Dips, crackers, fresh fruit, chocolate (see above) wine, fresh cured meats, cheese (if you can you lucky bastards) you can’t go wrong with the beauty of a picnic. Check out this link for some of Sydneys best picnic spots, I would suggest going around sunset! OR if you don’t have the time to do all the shopping, that’s okay! Grab some take away Thai, a bottle of red and head on down to the beach!
FOR THE GIRL WHO NEEDS SOME TLC! [$80-$200]
Nothing says I love you like “Hey hunny, I booked you a massage for the entire day, go have fun now”! Check out Concrete Playground Top Ten indulgent massage spots in Sydney! Dont’ fret if it’s not in the budget! You can be the masseur! Get your other half a pamper package of essential oils, bath bombs & massage oil and treat them at home!
FOR THE GIRL WHO LOVES SEAFOOD! [$90]
Book a cooking class at the Sydney Fish Markets! Not only do you get to eat the freshest there is, but you get to make it too!
FOR THE GIRL WHO LOVES A NIGHT OUT! [$150 – $300]
Organise to get a hotel for the night and go out for a fancy dinner or/and drinks! Use www.lastminute.com.au and www.trivago.com.au to find the best deals! Or sometimes even going direct to the hotels site can be cheaper! Always check!
FOR THE GIRL WHO LOVES TO GET AWAY [$150-$300]
Road trip your way down to a quiet costal town and shack up in an Airbnb. Go to the local grocer or local markets and shop for your weekend. Stay in, cook up a storm and turn your phones off. Enjoy each others company 🙂
Last but not least…
FOR THE GIRL WHO LOVES QUALITY TIME! [$0]
It costs absolutely nothing to delete your social apps for the day and spend some real, quality, un interrupted time with your other half or yourself. Focus on the present moment and give someone the most invaluable gift their is, your presence.
