Must-Have Valentine’s Gifts

Sweets, flowers and bubbles – Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and Prahran Market has everything you need!

This romantic celebration that occurs every year on 14th February is all about spoiling the one you love.

If you’re stuck for ideas this year, look no further than our Market Traders.


Here are our top must-have Valentine’s gifts at Prahran Market, in no particular order:


  1. The perfect bunch of blooms. Visit our florists Clara’s Flowers and Flawless Flowers to find an array of flowers to make that special someone smile. And if you’re looking for a gift that will last way longer than the day itself, head to our Prahran Garden Centre who specialise in a large range of indoor and outdoor plants.
  2. Chocolate Coated Delights ($45) from Naheda’s Choice are sure to impress – this box of handmade Turkish delights is for all of you chocolate lovers out there.
  3. Breton Fils Brut Tradition Champagne NV from Blackhearts and Sparrows ($72); because a bottle of bubbles is the perfect way to celebrate with your loved one.
  4. Decadent little cakes from Sweet Greek (from $9.50); with a huge selection to choose from, these gluten-free cakes are so good, you may have to buy two.
  5. For the coffee lovers out there and to start the day right – grab some of the best beans you’ll find in Melbourne, the Seasonal Blend ($20 for 250g) from Market Lane Coffee or Blend Ten ($16 for 250g) from Jasper Coffee.
  6. Pacific Oysters; you can’t do Valentine’s without plump, juicy oysters, so make sure you pick up a dozen from Claringbolds Quality Seafood, Periwinkle Fine Seafood or Prahran Seafoods.
  7. For the foodie in your life; the Ottolenghi Essential Collection ($87.50) – all budding chefs need this selection of specialty ingredients from the Essential Ingredient.
  8. Fresh honeycomb (from $12); the most delectable fresh honeycomb can be found at Whisked, just the perfect ingredient for making a tasty, romantic breakfast for two. We’re thinking honeycomb on toast or sweet pancakes. 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. Picnic for two? Pick up a delicious, locally sourced cheese platter from Maker & Monger. The Victorian Farmhouse Cheese Platter for Two (from $50) features a selection of cheeses along with beautiful accompaniments such as honey, fresh and dried fruits and crackers – perfect for a romantic picnic in the park.
  10. Hand-made cannoli; Farini creates theirs fresh in-store with irresistible flavours. You can’t go wrong with this Italian dessert!
  11. Tell that special someone how much they mean to you with a Valentine’s Day cookie pack from Stir The Pot. The team will also be selling a special Strawberry & Pistachio Heart Danish made by Penny For Pound, available until sold out at their Harvest Hall store.


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!
