Valentine’s Day doesn’t always have to be red roses and heart-shaped toys. You can make it whatever you want it to be as long as you’re able to enjoy it with your significant other and create precious memories. If you need some inspiration on what to do on this day of love, we have some unique Valentine’s Day ideas for couples that you can try with your partner.
1. Have a Cook-Off
If you enjoy a bit of competition between each other, you can have a cook-off at home with your kids or even just the two of you judging. Randomly pick your cook-off’s theme from a jar. Then, give each other the same budget and 15 minutes to shop for the ingredients at a grocery near you. Decide on the rules and set your camera to take a video of the cook-off. Whoever wins gets a reward like a wish or some massage coupons from the losing partner. Our top tip - Add some of our truffle oil to make sure you're the winner.
2. Make Chocolate Fondue
Have a fondue party with your loved one while marathoning your favourite show on Netflix. Prepare a variety of dippers like fresh and dried fruits, biscuits, marshmallows, and small pieces of cake. If you’re not a fan of sweets, you can opt for a cheese fondue instead. Or, for an even easier option, just grab some of our Rich Chocolate Sauce and you're ready to dip.
3. Enjoy Gourmet Food Together
If you are both foodies, one of the best Valentine’s Day gifts you can give your partner is a new good food to try. You can get a reservation at that restaurant you’ve been eyeing for a long time. Alternatively, if you prefer to stay at home, you can get one of our Australian-made gourmet Valentine’s Day hampers instead.
4. Go on a Scenic Train Ride
Satisfy your partner’s wanderlust and craving for good food at the same time with a Valentine’s Day gift of a scenic train ride. You can try the local wine and produce while enjoying the scenery. Some of the more luxurious train trips even offer multi-course menus to make your day of love even more special.
5. Visit Your Local Brewery or Winery
For couples that enjoy good drinks and the history behind it, you can try visiting some local breweries or wineries near you. If there aren’t any near you, you can order some of our wine hampers instead so you can have your very own wine-tasting date in the comforts of your home.
6. Head to the Beach with a Luxury Hamper
If your partner is a beach bum, one of the most romantic gifts you can give him is to join in his hobby. Go to his favourite spot with one of our gourmet hampers. Snack on some of our artisan treats and confectioneries between your planned activities. These can be things like surfing, beach volleyball, or swimming.
7. “Journey” to Another Country
Does your wife or girlfriend have that one country they’ve always wanted to visit? If she does, then one of the best romantic gifts for her is to take her on a “journey” to that country. For example, you can put up Indian-themed decors, order or cook Goan food, and dance to some of her favourite Indian songs.
