As all you Brooklyn Nine-Nine fans out there would know, “Terry loves love.” Well, so do we. How could we not, when there’s a whole day dedicated to celebrating beautiful people that make your world go round? From flowers and chocolates to delectable dinners and five-star hotel stays, we all love treating those who we care about to something unique.
To make your special someone's day that teeny tiny bit extra spesh, we’ve rounded up the top places in Perth offering the best gifts for you and your loves.
The Secret Skincare
First stop, clear skin. The Secret Skincare (the ladies who brought you vegan tailor-made creams and serums with unbelievably amazing results) is offering a pretty snazzy deal for those of you who have loved ones into their self-care schedule—every gift card purchased until 14 February will come with a (very boujee) signature scented candle. What better way to have an at-home spa night than to light a zesty, citrus-scented candle while you work miracles on your skin? Stock up on massage oil and give your loved one the pamper sesh they deserve here.
If you thought Chicho Gelato couldn’t get any cooler (yes, we went there), you thought wrong. Despite the awesome flavours they’ve already blessed us with, the creativity and deliciousness continues with their rosewater and white chocolate gelato. Plus, this year for Valentine’s Day, Chicho has teamed up with Perth florist Bloom to bring you the San Valentino special—12 red roses and a ½ litre of the signature rosewater gelato. Talk about a bellissimo gift delivery. Pre-order yours for V-day by 10 February here. If you missed the deadline, they're also slinging single stems and double scoops in store on Sunday.
WA Craft Gins
We’ve seen so many local gins with varying infusions and flavours that are bound to charm the pants off the gin-obsessed person in your life. Dune Distilling Co just keeps delivering wonderful gins, like the refreshing Lime and Green Tea gin for all the tea lovers out there—what's more, they're even doing special v-day gift boxes which include other south west goodies. For the vino fanatics, you can always pick up Australian Distilling Co’s awesome Shiraz Gin with notes of spice, blackcurrant and raspberry. Alternatively, grab a bottle of the oh so pretty pink gin from Wise Wine. Need more? Go all out with a whole hamper of exceptional WA gins for your lover to sip their way through.
For those of you who are super whipped for plant-based treats (and for each other of course), check out the W.H.I.P Patisserie gift box full of vegan baked goodies. Spoil your sweet tooth with a mango and rivermint eclair, apricot and lemon myrtle meringue tart and creamy cookies. For the savoury lovers, the all-vegan quiches and croissants will certainly not disappoint. Order them here for delivery or (if you’re more of a last-minute shopper) pick up from the Kyilla Farmers Market on Saturday.
While some snub a classic box of choccies on V-Day, we all know plenty of sweet tooths that would feel personally victimised if they didn't open up something sugary on the day of love. But hold up, step away from the Ferrero Rochers—Ox Rabbit has something better. Offering beautifully curated sweet treats for you and your loved one, this Valentine’s you can get a sugar rush from their brownie slab adorned with mini marshmallows and Oreos or the cookie nugs. From the raspberry red velvet cake to the ‘I Heart You’ box, there’s something tasty in there for everyone. Delivery will be from 12-14 February, so order yours here.
Treat your SO or yourself to some greenery this Valentine's Day with an indoor plant from Green Assembly. These locally grown plants are delivered in beautiful ceramic pots but if you want to step it up, opt for one of their V-Day gift packs. All of them include cute Valentine's candies, so all you need to do is decide whether you want to go with wine, fairy floss, a scented candle or a delicious Negroni mix. Every plant comes with a simple care instruction card, so they’ll know exactly how to keep it alive for maximum happiness.
Still haven’t found the perfect prezzie for your craft beer-loving partner? But don’t want to splash too much cash? We get it, those crafty cans are more expensive than you think. Thankfully the good folk at Mane Liquor have your back. For this whole week until the end of the 14th of February, they’re offering 20% off all beer and cider to make it all that easier to show your love. While you’re at it, you can stock up on boozy goodies for yourself too… you didn’t hear it from us.
Wanting a gift that you can share? No worries—QT Perth is where it's at. Treat your soulmate (and yourself) to a 24-hour stay in a luxury room with the Clock Strikes Love package. We’re talking bubbles on arrival, early check-in at 12pm, plus a gorgeous dinner at Santini, plus breakfast and a luxury bath drawn for you. Yes please. For something a little different, QT is also offering the Captured In Love package. Think elegant photoshoots adorned in a luxury bathrobe, surrounded by lush rose petals. Make yourself feel as glam as you are and book in a shoot—whether it’s by yourself, or with a partner (or pal).
COMO The Treasury
While we’re talking staycays, for something a little (or a lot) extra this Valentine’s Day, you can indulge in a Suite Celebration staycation at COMO The Treasury. This amazing offer includes an overnight stay in a luxury suite with garden views, $100 credit at the gorgeous restaurants and bars in the State Buildings (so you could put that towards dinner at Petition, Wildflower or Post), and champagne and macarons for your room. Still not enough? Enjoy an included breakfast at Post the next morning.
