All you need is love

Gift ideas to help you treat your special someone this Valentine’s Day.

Warning! There are only two weeks until the most romantic day of the year.

Valentine’s Day, on 14 February, is set to be another huge year for florists and retailers across Queensland as romantics hit the shops to buy gifts. 

Last year, finder.com surveyed 1718 respondents and found that 36% of Australians would splash out on their partners to celebrate Saint Valentine’s Day. The survey also revealed that, on average, Australians would spend $75 each, an equivalent of $528 million across the nation.

To make things easier, we’ve compiled a list of gift ideas to help you treat your Valentine.

Appreciation card or post

Tell that special someone how much they mean to you by writing a Valentine’s Day gift card, letter or appreciation post on social media. Sometimes all it takes is a few kind words to make someone feel loved. Top hashtags for 2019 include #LoveIsAllYouNeed, #BeMine and #HugsKissesValentinesWishes.

It’s a date

For some, the best gift of all is quality time together. Take the time to give each other some undivided attention. You can’t go wrong with dinner and a movie – it’s a classic date. Just remember to book in advance to avoid disappointment. RACQ members can save up to 40% on movie tickets at Event Cinemas and receive 10% cashback with RACQ Dining Rewards. For something different, pack a picnic and watch a movie under the stars at Moonlight Cinema.

A new experience

Tired of the re-experiencing the same date? Try something new and book an adventure through RACQ. Members can save on hot air balloon rides, sunset cruises, sky diving, scuba diving and more thanks to ExperienceOz

Flowers

Nothing is more romantic than receiving a single, red rose on Valentine’s Day. Sending flowers to a loved one is a well-known tradition across the world and most florists work around the clock to deliver millions of roses, teddy bears and boxes of chocolates. RACQ members can save 20% on flowers from Petals. Your Valentine doesn’t like flowers? Then give the gift of shopping and a spa treatment with RACQ eGift Cards.

Weekend away

This year Valentine’s Day falls on a Thursday – the perfect excuse to book a long weekend away and escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Sometimes a change of scenery is all you need to get those sparks flying again. A short weekend away can do wonders for your health and also for your relationship. RACQ members can save on accommodation with Mantra Hotels, RACV Royal Pines Resort Gold Coast, Vibe Hotels and  TFE Hotels. Remember to book in advance to avoid disappointment.
