The month of love is upon us, yay! And after making it out the other side of literally one of the most tumultuous years the world has ever seen, there is no better time to show your nearest and dearest just how much you truly care.
Whether you’re boo’d up, happily single, planning a killer Galentine’s Day with the girls, or just want to spend time with your kids, a few thoughtful gifts makes the day that much more exciting and magical – no need to wait for a partner to spoil!
Whatever your V-day plans, we’ve rounded up some awesome gifting ideas.
For him & her
Splurge: Something Sexy
Something you both can enjoy. South African company Nette Rose makes the most delicate and intimate lingerie sets. Not only are they pretty to look at but they’re ethically made too – from the fabric and packaging, right down to the cotton used in each hand stitch.
Budget: Setting the Mood
Who doesn’t love a scented candle? Especially when they come in the form of sensual body sculptures. These vegan, soy wax candles by The Muses are hand-poured and locally-made – perfect for setting the mood for a cozy night in.
For the girls
Splurge: Skin is In
Skin tools are having a moment and we love the benefit of crystal healing too. These Gua Sha rollers from Rush Tush come in Rose Quarts or Jade, so all your girls can look snatched and ready.
Budget: Floral Party
Flowers brighten every mood, and nothing says ‘I love you’ like a whimsical bouquet from the floral maestro Heike Hayward (Fleur Le Cordeur). The best way to celebrate a memorable Galentine’s. Check out the We Are Egg store for her awesome selection.
For the kids
Splurge: Family Fun
Why not spend Valentine’s Day doing a fun activity for the whole family? Art Jamming is just that – allowing you, your partner and little ones to explore and get creative. Their Valentine’s Day special is the perfect opportunity.
Budget: Sweet Treat
Spoil your little ones with a sweet treat from Krispy Kreme. These Valentine’s Day doughnuts are as cute as ever – and will look even cuter in their little hands.
For the single ladies
Splurge: Solo Spa Day
Grand gestures do not have to be reserved for others; self-love is a thing too! We love the idea of a solo pamper day surrounded by beautiful views. Try the Garden Spa at Babylonstoren for a few good specials.
Budget: Gourmet Stash
A day indoors should not be spent without a sweet stash – but make it gourmet. How about a luxury nougat giftbox or a pack of gold-dusted, chocolate-coated caramel popcorn? Ma Mère Confections has all this
