Last minute Valentine’s Day ideas!

Valentine’s Day is tomorrow and if you’re yet to organsied something for that special someone just breathe, it’s alright, we’ve got six last minute ideas that will save the day!

Things to do: 

Go on a vacation (of sorts)…

What’s better than having a romantic picnic for two? A food vacation – head to Bucci for lunch and order from their Vacation Series menu. This months menu will take you on a culinary trip to Calabria – think spicy eggplant bruschetta, ricotta gnocchi and fried honey balls, with a couple of Aperol Spritz’ to compliment the journey… Salute!

Let someone else rub your Valentine’s feet…

Grab your lover (or Galentine) and head to The Thai Foot Spa. Enjoy a sensory, sixty minute spa package which includes a flute of bubbles, chocolates, candles and an exotic foot massage using coffee beans and almond oil.

Start the design process… 

Warning – this idea is for the devoted! If a proposal is on the cards, then so should a visit to MJS Jewellery.  Selecting a ring for him or her is one of life’s most enduring purchasing decision, so why not involve your partner in the design process? How romantic! With professional assistance from master jeweller Matthew Staff, create a legacy piece that’s sentimental to both of you, and although the creation won’t be ready on the day, the memory of the intimate design process will last a lifetime.

Things to buy:

Pick up a brew with benefits….

Head to T2 and treat your lover to a brew with benefits from their new range which includes blends such as; All Nighty, Feelin’ Fresh and Wakey Wakey – there’s one to suit every Valentine, and with matching teapots and cups available this gift is sure to benefit you and your tea-lover.

Buy a bottle (or two)…

The cellar at Cru Bar stocks over four thousand bottles of wine, so there’s bound to be a new favourite awaiting discovery. Alternatively, play it safe and opt for a classic champagne, a bold red, or delve into the liquor cabinet and pick up all the ingredients for a killer cocktail… Did someone say Negroni Sbagliato?

Get a gift kit…

Shoutout to Aēsop for creating pre-packaged gift kits which are perfect for him or her! With charmingly designed packaging including curated skin and body products, there are sixteen variations devised to suit a range of recipients – one can never have too much Aēsop.
