Valentine’s Day Gifts for Her (Hint, Hint!)

Let's be friends!

The books we're reading, the vibrators we're using, the rants we're having and more in our weekly EDM.

Looking for Valentine’s Day gifts for her? Look no further – we’ve got you sorted! Whether you’re looking for a gift for your loved one, or just keen to treat yourself, here is our ultimate list!

Attention reader: Tuesday is Valentine’s Day. Yes, the 14th of February! Maybe your partner is the kind of gal who is very much expecting a gift this year but you’re not quite sure what to get her? Or maybe she’s the kind of gal that isn’t expecting anything… but who doesn’t love a surprise gift, especially on THE day of love? Either way, here are some gifts we would get if we were you.

The Caker

Support our homegrown Queen of cakes and order a cake from The Caker’s store or choose from their cake kits.

Cake kits aren’t just any old packet cakes you might find in the grocery aisle (we aren’t judging, but way to feel fancy for the loved up occasion). Choose from coconut raspberry lime leaf, matcha cherry, flourless dark chocolate gold leaf and spiced carrot with salted caramel.

The Caker Cakes, From $30

Caci Voucher

Our friends at Caci have clinic’s throughout the country and are the perfect gift for your special someone to book in for some well deserved self-care. Caci has facial and beauty treatments to choose from and products and their team of skin-specialists ensure you walk out feeling like you’re on another (peaceful) planet.

Caci, Gift vouchers from $20, facial treatments from $95

Flowers (obviously)

We know we’ve all been harping on that we can buy ourselves flowers thanks to Miley Cyrus’s catchy pop anthem, but if you feel like paying an exorbitant price for something you can get for less a day later, flowers it is!

Wild Poppies bouquets of red roses, from $99- $289

Champagne, (of course!)

Go for their favourite, or if you’d like to stay on theme there’s plenty of pink options like this pink Veuve Clicquot Rosé.

Veuve Clicquot Rosé, $99


It goes without saying, Mecca is a happy place for a lot of us. I’ve been eyeing up the visually pleasing Valentine’s display and while you can’t go wrong with a gift voucher you can choose from their curation of gifts. Vouchers are available from $25 (spend more for the good stuff) and have a look a range of price point options on the Valentine’s Day Gift Guide
