10 Thoughtful Valentine’s Day Gifts for a Partner

Valentine's Day partner

Whether you think Valentine’s Day is cheesy or not, chances are your partner will be expecting a gift from you. And, if you’re not keen on an experience gift and, instead, want to get them something they can keep, thinking of you every time they use it, then read on as we share our top picks for Valentine’s Day.

From sexy, satin robes and sweet-smelling scents, to a sturdy overnight bag or a men’s face kit, here’s what to get your partner this February 14 that’ll show them just how much you care.

For Her

Kimono or Robe

If you’re not sure of your partner’s exact size, but want to get them something to wear, you can’t wrong with a kimono or robe. Try a sexy silk kimono like Simone Perele Satin Secrets Kimono, $119.95, or an everyday linen robe she can wear around the house, like Home Republic Vintage Wash Robe, $99.99.


Scents can cause arousal, so it makes sense that perfumes are popular gifts on Valentine’s Day. , $299, has head notes of rose essence and green ivy, and heart notes of blackcurrant bud and moss. Viktor + Rolf Flowerbomb Nectar, $180, comes in a diamond-shaped bottle. For more of a uni-sex scent, opt for Discover Edition 1, $49, from Melbourne-based ROEMY.

Hair Dryer or Straightener

Upgrade your partner’s hair appliance or get them one they never had. A Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer, $599, or Dyson Corrale Straightener, $699, will last for years.

Bottle of Booze

A bottle of wine or spirit for Valentine’s Day can be something the two of you can enjoy together on a romantic picnic or cosy night at home. Greenall’s Wild Berry Gin, $40, is on theme with its pink spirit. Taking inspiration from the English countryside, it combines blackberries and raspberries with its original dry gin. Also on theme is La Chapelle Gordonne rosé, $47.95, made using grapes harvested from Provence and tasting fresh and fruity, or Pampelle, $46, a grapefruit apertif crafted on the banks of the River Charente in France.



For that gift that has her thinking of you every time she uses it or, even better, gets compliments on it, go for jewellery. Fred’s Pretty Woman Necklace, $2730, features 18k pink, gold and diamond. Swarovski Deluxe Silver Plated Tennis Bracelet, $245, is a winner if she wears a lot of silver. Or, if she’s a fan of gold, get her By Charlotte 14k Gold Tranquility Bracelet, $189.

Weekender Bag

A weekender bag can double as a gym or work bag, making it a super practical gift. Florsheim Foxwood Overnight Bag, $349.95, caters for a few days of travel, but is stylish enough to take with you to meetings or work functions. As does Tommy Hilfiger Downtown Duffle, $349.

Though we’re nearing the end of summer, sunglasses will still always come in handy to prevent squinting. Ray-Ban Clubmaster, $205, are classic shapes. Cancer Council Baines Polarised, $39.95, are also classic, but on the more affordable end. And if you really want to spoil your guy, get him Oliver Peoples Finley Esq. Sun, $400.

Massage Gun

Handheld massage guns are all the rage, so let him get in on it by getting him a Theragun, choosing from a range including Pro, Elite, Prime and Mini. Though pocket-sized and small enough to fit into a gym or golf bag, the Theragun Mini, $349, gives the same muscle treatment as the regular-sized.

You can’t go wrong getting him a self-care kit, particularly after the two years we’ve had. Tooletries The Harvey & Oliver Set, $54.95, is designed to get him and out of the shower as efficiently as possible, with a fog-resistant mirror, as well as a razor, toothbrush and paste, while Charles + Lee Beard Essentials, $50, is dedicated to all things beards and The Groomed Man Co Fresh Face Kit, $130, will keep his skin looking and feeling great.
