Valentine’s Day is a day that is about celebrating love; the love you have, the love you had, or perhaps the love you hope for. There is no perfect love, but every love is perfect in it’s own way, and as such, each love should be celebrated.
There is no recipe for success when selecting Valentine’s Day gifts. Making the right choice will depend on your listening skills and how attentive you are to your partner. As there is no ‘one size fit’s all’ solution, I suggest you choose your own love spirit to help guide your way.
For traditional romantics, Valentine’s Day requires a few key elements;
- A Red Rose delivery- probably a dozen, generally long stemmed and preferably delivered to work! Perhaps this box of roses will fit the bill?
- Jewelry gift
- Dinner reservation; perhaps French, Italian or Seafood.
Nothing says romance than a dinner date that starts Champagne and ends with Souffle right? Valentine’s Day dining for hardcore fanatics should be fancy and fine. This means you will need to be organised so you don’t miss out on the venue of choice, or the table with the view!
If your lover favours vibrant and/or tropical colourings, then a Bollywood inspired blend of blooms is probably more suitable like Beaming Beauty. Suitable flower choices could be; Orchids, Heliconias, Lotus, Water lilies, Gingers, Anthuriums and Siam Tulips. Tropical blooms tend to weather the heat and humidity of a Sydney Summer better than softer, garden style blooms, as it is similar to their natural environment. This means that a bouquet with these ingredients will have a longer vase life- keeping you in the good books for longer!
Team your beautiful bouquet with a fun night eating with your hands at your favourite Indian or Sri Lankan restaurant. And finish the evening getting matching tattoos (Henna of course)!
Quirkier gift ideas for this love spirit could include; essential oils, incense sticks or semi precious stones for attracting love and healing.
Sensual personalities may enjoy a mixture of tradition and creativity. They are open to new experiences, but like some classic elements also. Why not create a mixed bouquet of blooms that includes a cluster of romantic roses, but uses a rich blend of complementary colours. Something like Bold Charm from our menu would be perfect
Take your Aphrodite to a dinner date with a difference sampling Mexican street food, sipping Sangria and dancing the night away.
Massage oil could make an interesting gift, or maybe a one on one dance lesson.
Some personalities are naturally attracted to neutral aesthetics; pure whites, creams, browns and greens. Whether you choose pure white roses, or a selection of natives is up to you. Neutral colour tones go with every decor, which takes the stress out if you don’t know what kind of decorating style the recipient has. White roses would be a great choice if you are an engaged couple, or newly married. Check out White Rose Love Affair. Alternatively, for more rustic charm choose a selection of wildflowers.
Stuck for date ideas? Maybe brunch at an Organic Cafe, or a picnic in the national park would suit this Valentine.
Knowing who you are buying for means you will know what kind of gift they will appreciate. If none of the above love spirits sound quite right, feel free to ring our team to discuss your ideas
