Hands up if you’ve ever watched a rom-com with your significant other only to have them glare at you each time the main character is swept up with a seriously romantic gesture?
This is then followed by months of them dropping hints that you should be more romantic, of course. And no, bringing a Freddo home from the 'Servo doesn't cut it as romantic.
Chances are this scenario is ringing more than a few bells. We get it, we really do. We’ve been there a few times before. That’s why we’ve decided to whip up a list of thoughtful gifts to make your boo smile just because. Or, let’s be real if you’re feeling like treating yourself this is the article for you.
If you’re to snag the bf/gf of year award, keep reading!
A Month’s Worth Of Flowers, Just Because…
Remember that scene in ‘How To Lose A Guy In Ten Days’ when Andy’s desk is bombarded with white roses from Ben? And she thusly becomes the envy of the entire office? That could be you! The Little Posy Co. are our fave flower delivery company in Brisbane, and they’ll even hook you up with a month’s worth of flower to your door! They put together a unique bouquet each morning—based on the prettiest blooms on offer at the markets—and then hand deliver them to your door each day. How cute is that? If you’re more of a one off kinda gal, you can also order a single ($35) or double ($70) posy for the day. Click here to order now!
Put A Ring On It…
Ok, ok, it doesn’t need to be a ring. Don’t freak out. We’re loving Molten Store’s range of dainty, delicate jewellery. The best part, though, is that it all sits at a pretty reasonable price point and is super adorable. Surprise her with some sparkly new earrings, or a pretty ring (that isn’t for that ring finger). Honestly though, anything you pick from Molten Store will put a smile on their dial.
Join The Gang
If she says she doesn’t love bags she’s either lying or hasn’t met the right bag yet. Trust us. Plus, one look at the pom-pom adorned cuteness that is a The Wolf Gang bag and she’ll be sold. For bonus points, fill the bag with some little trinkets.
Picnics are about an 11 on the romantic scale. Add in a gorgeous sunset, a bottle of wine and her fave tunes and you take yourself all the way up to a 15. Science and facts etc. To pull this one off head to The Stores and pick up some charcuterie, cheese and fruits. Head to somewhere like New Farm Park or Mt Cootha, or get regional and head to Stanthorpe and make a trip out of it!
Pampered To Perfection
Treat her to some serious luxury with a refresh of her skincare routine. Minimalist skin care is the perfect gift if she’s all about small batch, vegan, cruelty-free, and organic products. You can snap up an entire set of their products for less than $200—which is pretty impressive considering that’s how much your average eye cream goes for these days.
Chocolate Is The Key To Anyone’s Heart
It’s true. Food is the ultimate form of seduction, honestly. Stop by New Farm Confectionary and put together a care package of all their luxe sweets if you’re after some serious brownie points. If you’re looking for literal brownie points, you can’t go past Dello Mano’s world famous brownies (Oprah loves them, FYI).
