Gift-giving can be a pressuring task, especially when symbolic of the love and relationship you share with your partner. While it's easy to go the typical chocolate-flowers-and-teddy bear route, it can seem a bit impersonal to some (not to mention, over done). If you really want to impress, why not think of something innovative and out-of-the-ordinary that’s truly in line with your partner’s interests and essence? A little thoughtfulness goes a long way and it doesn’t take much to really make your partner feel special.
Fortunately, we’ve done a little scouring for you to find the best gifts for every type of partner - from the adventurer to the foodie and fashion lover.
For the adventurer
The best gift for an adventurer would definitely be an experience. A sunset yacht cruise or helicopter tour around the Cape, perhaps? Not only will they be right in their element but it makes for the most romantic bonding experience for the two of you too.
12 Apostles Helicopter Tour
Try this scenic 12 Apostles couples helicopter tour from Helicopters Cape Town, to soak in a bird’s eye view of Clifton, Camps Bay and the Atlantic Seaboard with your love.
Valentine’s Day Yacht Cruise
Is there anything more romantic than sailing on open water as the sun sets behind the horizon? This Pre-Sunset Valentine’s Day Champagne Cruise by Waterfront Charters promises pure romance and will set you evening off to a memorable start.
For the homemaker
If your partner is the hostess with the mostest, then you’ll never go wrong with some beautiful homeware.
This gorgeous hand-crafted crockery set from Maxwell Williams’s Teas & Cs range will certainly spice up your dinner for two.
We love these aesthetic candles from local brand Okra. Their Game of Love gift set is just the thing you need to set the mood for a romantic evening.
