Valentine’s Day is zooming in faster than a cupid’s arrow, and if you’re in a mad dash for last-minute Valentine’s Day gifts, stay calm. You don’t have to declare your love (or crush) with grand gestures, lavish dinners and big spending because sometimes it’s the simple things and thoughtful gifts that have the biggest impact.  

Whether you plan to impress a beau, buy for a lover, surprise a mate or treat yourself, we’ve curated a bunch of products that cater to every kind of relationship and budget.  

From jewels fit for a Queen to sexy lingerie and fun-filled pottery classes, we’ve got V-Day all wrapped up for you.

Romantic love: wow your boo or someone new.

Prepping to impress your boo or hook up with a new crush this year? To nail those #RelationshipGoals or catch the eye of a maybe bae, you’ll need a Valentine’s Day gift that says, "I’ve only got eyes for you." 

Go old school with a classic piece of jewellery (even better if it’s waterproof) or the gorgeous Silas Bracelet from cult label Reliquia Collection. This beauty is a little bit bold, a little bit vintage and made with 100% RJC-Certified Recycled Gold packed in a cute AF box. Take my money. 

Planning a surprise getaway instead? Book a luxe escape or romantic retreat through Luxury Escapes and pay it off in instalments with Afterpay. Then, wrap up an Oroton Margot Weekender for packing, and you’re both good to go. Crafted with pebble leather and brass hardware, this spacious bag is perfect for holding all of your travel essentials, sexy lingerie and raunchy bits and bobs.

Self-love: treat your number one. 

Flip the script on Valentine’s Day to focus on the most important person in your life—you! If you’re riding solo or just keen to feel like spoiling yourself (because why not?), we’ve lined up some fab self-love treats that are sure to make you feel extra spesh this year. 

Melt away the stress of last year with a luxurious, full-body pamper package, a relaxing massage or a luxe body scrub, thanks to our friends at Red Balloon. Buy a massage voucher and choose from a huge range of packages that will leave you floating on cloud nine in your own time. Plus, with a 5-year expiration date and Afterpay options, it’s the self-care gift that keeps on giving. 

Prefer to chill and Netflix at home? Spritz on a fresh fragrance and wrap yourself in an ultra-comfy Hommey Robe in Sherbet Stripes. Great for lazy Sundays (or any day, really), these plush robes will have you lounging around in style. Bonus: they’re great for the beach, too!

Platonic love: cute Valentine’s Day gifts for your mates. 

Valentine’s Day isn't just for the lovebirds—it’s also the perfect time to celebrate the friends that make life easier. After all, where would we be without our squad, right? 

This year, let’s ditch the romantic clichés and cheesy presents to focus on some super cute gift ideas that will show our besties just how much they mean to us. After all, where would we be without our squad, right? 

Kick it old school with the Friendship Duo Set Necklace by The House of Slani. It’s a chic but sentimental way to celebrate your bond this Valentine’s Day, and it’s water-safe for swimming and showering. Twinning and winning!  

If margies and dancing are more their thing, wrap up a box of Maison Balzac Margarita Glasses. They’ve got some serious aesthetic appeal and are shaped to deliver maximum flavour, so you can raise a toast to the good, bad and "meh" moments with your people.
