5 Unique Valentine’s Day Gifts

5 Unique Valentine's Day Gifts
on 04 January 2021 in Events & Entertainment

The one day a year that is dedicated to showing your significant other just how much they mean to you, Valentine’s Day is your chance to concrete those feelings between you and your loved one.

When it comes to meaningful gifts, the most meaningful ones are the ones that exemplify how well you know each other. A bouquet of the freshest roses for the one who adores them. A bold Australian whisky for the dark spirits connoisseur. And a walk down memory lane in the form of a relationship scrapbook.

Here is our list of the 5 Valentine’s Day gifts that will surprise and impress. Bearing the uniqueness of supporting local Mount Isa businesses, especially during these trying times.

1. A custom flower arrangement 

Not all flower arrangements are created equal, and this is something you would have quickly learned after trying and buying flowers over the many years for Valentine’s Day.

A significant representation of love and appreciation, roses have become an expectation of Valentine’s Day combined with heart shaped chocolates. Unless your loved one falls into the cliché of loving roses, the best way to follow the mainstream path of Valentine’s Day while making yours unique to your relationship is to customise it. Think daisies if she loves them, orchids for a long lasting representation of strength in your relationship, and an abundance of colour and life to symbolise your love and future together.

If you are looking for a magnificent bouquet of flowers in Mount Isa, head to the Mount Isa Florist on 6/22 Miles Street, Mount Isa, QLD 4825. Run by a talented florist with a keen eye for decorations, arrangements, and colour combinations, she’ll impress your loved one with a wonderful flower bouquet. 

Add chocolate to the mix if you’re looking to throw in some sweetness into your gift. And if in doubt, simply seek the advice and expertise of the florist in charge, who has helped countless individuals in your position win hearts on Valentine’s Day. She’s helpful, eager to accommodate, understanding, and determined to make this your very best Valentine’s Day flower arrangement ever.
