7 Unique Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

1. A Framed Book Page Art from their favourite book!

Is the one you love a book geek? I am! Jane Austen is one of my all-time favourite authors and her words are captivating.

BookGeek is an online store that specialises in literary themed gifts so perfect for the book-lover in your life.

BookGeek Jane Austen Framed Book Page Art

This framed art is printed on a page from a vintage copy of Pride and Prejudice (sourced from charity shops and second-hand book dealers) in an exclusive hand drawn font.  It’s framed in a black wooden block frame, handmade in England, using ethically sourced wood.  There is no glass in the frame, which allows you to appreciate the beauty of the vintage book page. This unique gift is $43.99.

As well as a collection of beautiful Jane Austen products, their range spans many more authors. You’re bound (get it?) to find one you love – check out the range here.

2. A Card Frame – to treasure the beauty of cards forever!

This beautiful Card Frame from Corner Block Studio is an adjustable hanging frame for greeting cards, photographs and prints.

Corner Block Studio Card Frame

I just love the idea of continuously finding joy in a special greeting card long after the event. Plus you can keep changing the card when new ones are received. How romantic!

It’s super simple to use and adjusts to display different sized greeting cards, post cards, photos and prints. Just slide the top timber piece up and down the cord.

They are designed and crafted in Brisbane, Australia and made from sustainable timber and 100% cotton cord. Find out more and purchase here from $25.

3. Noble FAIR Açaí Liqueur

Fancy surprising your loved one with a fine liqueur packed with superfoods?

Noble Spirits Acai Liqueur

Noble FAIR Açaí Liqueur is made from 100% natural ingredients, low in sugar and the perfect addition to a Bramble!

Açaí commonly grows in the rain forests of the Amazon and contains a lot of antioxidants, fibre and heart-healthy fats. The sugar used in FAIR Açaí Liqueur is organic and Fairtrade Certified, coming from various co-ops in countries such as Malawi and Paraguay.

Noble Spirits is an Australian based company that imports and distributes fine authentic spirits and wine in Australia. FAIR Açaí can be bought online at Dan Murphys or through independent bottle shops for $35.

This is top of my list this year for Valentine gifts for him. My “him” I mean my hubs. Actually I mean me. Moving on…!

4. A beautiful Candle from unusual beginnings

I probably don’t need to tell you how addicted I am to candles. Ok I LOVE them! Just a slight obsession.

I heard about Pigeon and Weasel recently and just adore their concept. They hand pour soy wax candles and diffusers in recycled beer bottles!

Pigeon and Weasel Candles – in Chai Latte and Fig!

Established in Sydney ten years ago, two friends came up with a great idea to hand cut beer bottles. They’re now the most recognised beer bottle candle range on the market.

These luxe, smoothly finished amber beer bottles contain a variety of fragrances such as Vanilla Bean, Fig, Chai Latte, Coconut Lime and more.

I think these beautiful candles are such a unique and unusual valentines gift idea and look so stylish. The fragrances are delightful and they are a lovely addition to any home.

You can find out more about the range and purchase here.

5. A Journal they will truly want to write in

Recently I had the pleasure of connecting with Janelle Ruthven, Founder of The Grace Files. Sydney based mother of two, Janelle, is a former cardio-thoracic nurse who finds joy in looking after people.

The Grace Files Journals

Janelle founded The Grace Files and has created a range of A5 journals that are helpful, meaningful and beautiful gifts for the one you love. Her range also includes some delightful Kindness Kits – how lovely!

For parents and expectant parents, the Love Letters to My Child journal is one of the best valentines day gifts I’ve seen! The time taken to write a heartfelt love letter to your baby, even before you meet them, must be one of the loveliest things you can do. As well as building up a collection of memories for them to read and appreciate later on, it’s just such a fabulous way to mindfully remember every little step in their lives and yours.

It’s beautifully boxed and available for $59.95 here. Plus 10% of each purchase goes to a worthy charity.

6. Essentials Oils for a happy family + 25% off!

First up, full disclosure – I buy and sell doTERRA essentials oils and I’ve shared before how much I love using them.

Here’s why: I diffuse Peppermint oil in the morning to wake me up and be clear-headed for successful working day. Then I use Lavender oil when I need to relax and to help me sleep – a few drops on my pillow. I also use doTERRA Balance at times when I’m feeling anxious or overwhelmed and it works so well!

I don’t use them every day but on the days I need a boost, they make a very clear difference to me.

If your loved one loves essential oils, or is looking for ways to improve their well-being, I would recommend the doTERRA Family Essentials Kit.

doTERRA Family Essentials Kit

It’s a collection of ten nurturing essential oils, including six single oils and four blends. Includes 5ml bottles of Lavender, Lemon, Peppermint, Tea Tree, Oregano, Frankincense, Ice Blue®, Easy Air™, DigestZen®, and On Guard™. You also get a Smart & Sassy 15mL as part of this enrollment kit.

7. Magical Skin Care

Mirenesse is a skin care range I adore! Their beautifully-packaged products are packed with ingredients that work for me.

The range has some new additions that promise you firmer and younger skin in just six days. Um, there are probably quite a few ladies I know who would love to give that a go!

Mirenesse Endless Youth Skin Care Range
The beautiful Mirenesse Endless Youth Skin Care range

Priced from $49, the 4-Step Endless Youth System includes the Magic Beads Exfoliator, Bubble & Glow Mousse Mask, Amazing Day Botanical Cell Serum and Midnight Magic Cell Serum.

I’ve just started using this range consistently as a 4-step program. In just a couple of days, my skin feels a lot smoother.

The Mousse Mask smells pepperminty fresh and bubbles on the skin. It’s a bit like a sheet mask minus the sheet!

I’m looking forward to seeing my skin become brighter as the days go on!

You can find out more about this range and purchase it at Adore Beauty, RY.com.au, Sephora or the Mirenesse website.

I hope my Valentines gifts for her, him and the family help to inspire you. I know gifts are never essential to make Valentines Day special but if you want to get something, here are some of my faves this year.

    Love the Care + Notes notebook. I had a good friend with cancer who kept a journal (albeit online), and writing a little something every day made him feel more calm and balanced. Luckily he is now in remission, and he keeps his online journal up and running just to revisit it from time to time — it gives him strength, remembering what he went through :)

    “Love Letters to my Child” Such a beautiful idea and concept, i absolutely love it and would love my little cherub to have this record when they grow up, I know I would have loved It!

    LIFE + NOTES as I can record so much, my baby is only 20 months so there’s so much to say, and preserve!

    Life and Notes because too often as parents we pick out the worst behaviours and actions of our children. Even though we celebrate major accomplishments and landmarks. I think reflecting on a regular basis could prove to be more beneficial and promote a healthier relationship with my children. I think this diary reflects this.

    I would love the beautiful life + notes journal. It looks so aesthetic and gorgeous, and I seriously could never afford it.

  8. Sarah Smith

    I would love the care & notes. In January I was diagnoised with Hodgkings Lymphomia and currently having chemotherapy. So much goes on during this time and it’s hard to remember everything. I write things down on bits of paper scattered all over the place (like my mind currently is)

  9. Bella Ri

    I’d love the Life + Notes, it will help me to get organised and motivated in terms of my future goals, both as a mummy and a working professional!

    The Care Journal is perfect to record the important details and detangle the thoughts and emotions associated with going through an illness either yourself or with a loved one.

    In Love Letters to my Child,
    I would write to my eldest daughter,
    Its three years since she’s spoken to me,
    And she now lives far away over the water,
    I could write all the things I’d like to say,
    In the hope I can give it to her one day.

  19. Jeannine Barrett

    Care and Notes Journal. I suffer chronic pain, osteo-arthritis and a bad back among other things. I visit multiple specials and have ever changing instructions. This would help me keep track of what was going on but it would also develop into a beautiful keepsake and reflective trip along the road to self-discovery, valuing life lessons, never giving up, valuing friendships, keeping an open mind and focusing on the future!

  23. Samara McRae
    / 8:23 pm

    Life + Notes. I am due to give birth in 5 weeks and would love this to journal all the important info and stories in it.

  24. Maree Gray
    / 6:20 pm

    Care + Notes – this would have been so useful to me 9 years ago when I went through a major health issue. I could still use it now to record the details while I can still remember them!

  25. Jessica Ashbrooke
    / 4:39 pm

    Love the letters to my child how sweet

  26. Laura Power
    / 4:36 pm

    The Care + Notes journal would be great over the next few years as I prepare for major surgery

    love letters to my child – an amazing idea – i would adore to do these for my children as i would love to document moments from their childhood and they can have these memories forever

  29. Sonia Chang
    / 2:55 pm

    There’ll be nothing quite like to write my personal inspire mindfulness words and beautiful moments in a magnificent ‘The Grace Fiiles’ Journal everyday. It would be a perfect gift for my two autistics daughters as they love to check my notebook all time. There’ll be none there for my two autistics daughters after me and my husband died. Only these beautiful mum’s words and memories would keep them comfort. It is a truly a tremendous giveaway for keeping most cherished memories alive.

    Love letters to my child!
    An amazing journal to one day gift my daughter,
    I started writing her notes from birth that tell her of the special things she has learnt, funny things she says and the stuff that we do together. This would be the perfect way to put it all together for her!

    / 2:22 pm

    Life + Notes – .making magical memories..a positive outlook on life which is there to be treasured rather than using Care + Notes in which I could be tempted to journal some less than positive writings some days after chemo.

  33. Deborah Bolam
    / 2:14 pm

    Life + Notes is beautiful would be lovely to write down memories

  34. Sarah J

    Love letters to my child – we are having a tough time connecting right now but I love her so much and want to capture the things that are special about her so that when we get through this she will know I have always cared and always seen the good side as well as everything else and that I love the whole package

    Care + Notes, Mum is battling cancer, the Care + Notes journal would be lovely to for her to keep track of all the important information overload that seems to come with a cancer diagnosis.

  41. Tracy Grayson
    / 3:04 pm

    Life + Notes is a beautiful idea, sometimes you forget big and little things the kids do that are so special, if it’s written down you’ll never forget and you can read it together in years to come and say yes, that is an awesome memory.

  42. Dianne
    / 8:28 am
