Valentine’s Day gifts for every special someone

Whether it’s for your girlfriend, boyfriend, best friend, or hey, even just for yourself, we’ve pulled together a few fun goodies to may February 14th a little extra special.


Keep it comfy
Slide into the holiday with a pair of these cool new slides (see what we did there?!) from Ugg Express. The Tarramarra Claude Pillow Slides come in seven different shades, so you can grab a spare for someone else, and yourself! Aside from the fun pops of pastel and classic black and grey, the slides are non-slip and made with EVA foam.

Say it with… baked goods
There’s no better gift than the one you’ve baked yourself. Let’s be real, Valentines Day is a Monday this year so baking might not be on the to do list but we’ve got a hack. Mealkit delivery service EveryPlate is doing time poor Aussies across the country a favour and adding a special Valentine’s Day delivery to their box. Skip the set menus and make your own special two course feast – honey-soy ginger beef stir fry and chocolate brownies. It’s a simple add-on to your weekly box and ensures ingredients and instructions are delivered to your door.

For the wild card…
Old school but still oh so fun, everyone’s favourite card game UNO has launched a new version. UNO All Wild is on shelves now, and you guessed it, has plenty of tricks up its sleeves. It’s fast, furious and a fun stocking filler for a quick gift that keeps on giving. Find it at Big W and Target.

Up-level your chocolate game
Just in time for Valentines Day, Arnotts has released a new range of Tim Tam flavours. Praise be! You can now snap up the four new flavours –  Decadent Triple Choc, Salted Caramel Brownie, Dark Choc Raspberry Tart and Dark Choc Mint – from the supermarket and trust us, we’ve done the taste test, your special someone will thank you for it. Good news is, there’s always plenty of Tim Tams to share.

All-rounder goodness gift
Ah the gift of good skin… Now we’re talking! Make a beeline for Sabbia Co’s sustainable, ethical skincare gift packs. The Girlfriend Gift Kit has all the goodies to get a good skin glow – guilt-free. There’s a face it face kit with reusable cleansing pad, charcoal blender, headband and brush to get your started, plus a charcoal adaptogen mask, matcha clay mask and multi-vitamin moisturiser to get you set up on a whole new routine. We can’t forget men’s skin either – the Men’s Gift Kit has a few goodies that will get them rolling too.

A night under the stars 
What could be more romantic than a night under the stars? A movie night under the stars of course! The Moonlight Cinema season is still going strong, with screens taking over parks and public spaces across the country. Book in for a session or buy a gift voucher for your hot date. Or for your friends! The screenings are great for couples or groups, and in some locations, even the dog. You can go old school with a picnic blanket, try out the CONNOISSEUR Lounge, or our favourite, Gold Grass. This year there’s even a new Tia Maria bar in some locations – espresso martini anyone?!
