10 Must-Have Valentine's Gifts

Thursday 6th February 2020

Looking for the perfect Valentine’s gift? With food being the best way to anyone’s heart, you’re sure to find the perfect gift from our Traders. And in case you’re in a rush, we’ve put together our top ten must-have Valentine’s gifts for the year, in no particular order:

  • 1. Turkish delight gift box (from $30); beautifully presented and so tasty, Naheda’s Choice Turkish delight is sure to impress. Try the rose petals or a miscellaneous box.
  • 2. Potted succulents (from $8); head to Prahran Garden Centre to check out their impressive selection of cute, hard-to-kill, succulents for a living gift that will last way longer than the day (and maybe longer than some relationships, too!).
  • 3. Didier Chopin NV from Blackhearts and Sparrows ($60); because a bottle of bubbles is the perfect way to celebrate with your loved one.    
  • 4. Decadent cake from Sweet Greek ($28.50); with a huge selection to choose from, these gluten-free cakes are so good, one slice will not be enough.
  • 5. Local roses (from $8 a bunch); Flawless flowers has the most beautiful local roses at the moment, in a range of stunning colours, too. 
  • 6. Pacific Oysters (TAS, $24 per dozen); you can’t do Valentine’s without plump, juicy oysters, so make sure you pick up a dozen from Claringbolds.
  • 7. Wine carafes (individuals carafes starting from $9.95); The Essential Ingredient is known for its lovely cookware, so why not have a look at their stunning range of wine carafes.
  • 8. Fresh honeycomb (from $12); the most delectable fresh honeycomb can be found at Whisked. We’re thinking honeycomb on toast or pancakes would make a tasty, romantic breakfast for two.  Cut your toast or pancakes into a heart using a cookie cutter, and if the day goes well, you can use the honey to drizzle on later…
  • 9. Hand-made cannoli ($5 each or 4 for $18); Farini creates theirs fresh in-store with irresistible flavours.
  • 10. French foodie gift packs (from $49.99); Cleo’s Deli has beautiful gift packs of French products, including condiments, salts and oils.

Now let’s be honest, not everybody is partnered up, so who are we to say these must-have Valentine’s gifts are only suitable for your partner…we also think they’re the perfect way to treat yourself!
