Valentines Day is two weeks away, which means you could be forgiven for not giving much thought to gifts yet. A man should never underestimate the power of a well executed V-Day, so here’s a few tips on how to get your gift giving game to where it needs to be. Creativity is key.
Zulu and Zephyr
The talented ladies at Zulu and Zephyr are experts when it comes to stylish beach attire. Chicks dig them, and dudes dig chicks in them. It’s a win win.
Zulu and Zephyr Pebble Bikini RRP: $130
Most guys will know the name for their sexy lingerie, but Agent Provocateur have tried their hand at women’s fragrance and if their previous work is anything to by, it should be a bona-fide success.
Agent Provocateur Fatale Pink 50ml RRP: $79
Glasshouse Fragrances, Verona
Glasshouse Fragrances have produced the Verona Candle specifically for Valentines Day, which means it’s a limited edition gift for your special lady. Nothing says love like limited editions. It’s also triple scented.
Glasshouse Fragrances Verona 350g RRP: $42.95
Twilight at Taronga – Roar and Snore
This is a unique gift. Sarah Blasko and Anthony Callea serenading you and your lady surrounded by the wildlife at Taronga Zoo. Add to that canapés, welcome drinks and animal encounters before making your way to a reserved area on the concert lawns to enjoy the evening’s performance with a gourmet hamper inspired by renowned chef Giovanni Pilu. Following the concert, Roar and Snore guests will be led on a night walk around the zoo before retiring to their private safari-style tent with spectacular views over Sydney Harbour. In the morning, as the sun rises over the Opera House, guests will enjoy a light breakfast followed by unique behind the scenes experiences at Australia’s most famous zoo. Dreamy, right?
Price: $795 per couple.
50 Shades of Grey
Nothing sets the mood like a bit of bondage on the silver screen, right? Seriously though, is there a woman alive who didn’t devour the erotic workings of E.L. James like a sex deprived maniac? And if your lady didn’t, the movie will undoubtedly set the tone for an enjoyable evening anyway. Lucky for you, 50 Shades of Grey opens nationally on the 14th of February.
Luminow Glow – Glow in the Dark Lingerie
This is a personal favourite. The clever folks at Luminow Glow have developed some pretty tasteful lingerie that would be a perfectly acceptable V Day gift in their own right. However, these have the added ‘wow’ factor of glow in the dark ‘sensitive areas’. Perfect for a predawn getaway (hopefully that won’t happen) or if you have a little bit of trouble finding your way in the dark; these are a winner.
Luminow Glow Bra RRP: $75
