The ultimate ‘his and hers’ Valentine’s Day Gift Guide
It’s a big week for luuuurve in the capital this week, with loved-up couples set to pack our restaurants and cinemas.
But nothing says ‘I adore you’ like giving your heartthrob an actual gift on the morning of Valentine’s Day before you both set off for work. Get inspired with our ‘His and Hers’ gift guide below, featuring some classics and some new and definitely unusual options too!
1. A stunning bouquet from Miss Muffet’s Flower Boutique.
A gorgeous little pop-up version of Mawson boutique Miss Muffet’s is now offering freshly cut flowers and terrariums on-site at Majura Park Shopping Centre, just outside Big W. Owner Kayla Patterson is expecting a huge rush for roses on both Thursday and Friday this week, but is hoping people get creative with their gifts too.
“Natives are a beautiful option,” she says. “But I’d personally buy my loved one a terrarium – they’re gorgeous and last much, much longer.”
Miss Muffet’s is on-site at Majura Park until this Sunday 16 February, and Kayla is loving it.
“The effect that flowers actually have on people is quite phenomenal,” she says.
“They just make you happy regardless of the situation you’re receiving them in. I love having a part of making people feel like that.”
2. This adorable sloth.
No. Words. Required.
Sloth plush toy, $35, Chilada
3. Billion dollar brows.
Not since the 1980s have eyebrows been more meticulously cared for or considered the defining feature of a woman’s face. Let the team at T-Brows give your loved one’s brows a complete makeover, using the ancient art of threading.
Gift vouchers available for individual and packaged brow services.
4. Chocolates. Filled with Nutella.
If you’re more a traditionalist when it comes to chocolate, you can always head down the Cadbury Dairy Milk Tray or Roses road at the Majura Park Woolworths. But nothing says ‘Thanks for putting up with me’ like a stack of Ferrero Rochers almost as big as your head. Plus, they’re filled with Nutella. Enough said.
Ferrero Rocher chocolates, Costco, $18.99
1. The chance to get away from it all.
We’re not sure who’d love a weekend away more – the person actually fishing or the one left at home with the quiet and the television completely to herself. Oh, did we say that out loud? Either way, the gift of a fishing rod is one he’ll have for years to come and is an excellent way to encourage him to head into nature and recharge every once in a while.
Ugly Stik fishing rod, $69.97, Costco
2. What he really wants.
If you’re short on time ahead of Valentine’s Day just duck into Jim Murphy Express and grab one of these. It’s packed with local brew and a handy bag of salt and vinegar chips to get a real thirst up. Too easy! (In fact we’re pretty sure anything from Jim Murphy will be loved by the recipient!)
Bentspoke Bucket, $39.99, Jim Murphy Express
