How to Score an A+ for Romance this Valentine’s Day

Published on 06 February 2019

Whether you’re married or single, newly in love or decades in, Valentine’s Day is a great excuse for a little bit of indulgence. From finding the perfect gift to plotting a romantic date night or treating yourself to some pampering, we’ve got everything you need to get the love flowing. 

Keen to celebrate Valentine’s Day but not sure where how? Check out our picks for celebrating the way you want to – right here at Woodgrove.

The Gift of Love

Finding the perfect gift for the one you love doesn’t need to tie you up in knots. First, think about something you know that really puts a smile on their face. Is it sport? Books? Jewellery? Cooking or food? Knowing your partner’s passions and hobbies is a good place to start if you want to nail the right gift. For a range of Valentine’s Day special offers. Still unsure? Opt for a voucher. From massages and manicures to cookery gear and car washes, a voucher will let them shop to their heart’s content.


Say it with Flowers

Flowers always score brownie points on Valentine’s Day and now that the centre has its very own dedicated florist, you can lay the love on big time. Located just outside Coles, Thistles Florist is run by Scottish-born Linsey who, with 27 years’ experience as a qualified florist, prides herself creating special arrangements to suit all occasions. This Valentine’s Day, Thistles is offering bunches of 12 long-stemmed red roses for $95, as well as short stemmed roses in mini-boxes, ready-made bouquets, and single red roses. 


Fix Up, Look Sharp

If a date night is on the cards then why not wow your better half with some sharp threads and a slick new do. Polish your look without breaking the bank at Dotti, Connor, Jay Jays, Sportsgirl, Ghanda and Cotton On. For the ladies, nothing quite adds glam and gloss like a fresh, bouncy blow dry. The team at Xpress Cutz, Just Cuts, Hairhouse Warehouse and Barber Dollz will book you in for a blow dry (no cut or colour needed), while fellas can get a fresh cut, beard trim or traditional cut-throat shave at Da Barber and Classic Barber


Dinner and a Show

Keen to make a night of it? Reserve a table at your favourite of our alfresco dining restaurants this Valentine’s Day and enjoy some smooth sounds as you dine with a free live acoustic performance from talented local duo Jason & Tania. To sweeten the deal, Degani Bakery Cafe is offering a free glass of wine or soft drink with each meal purchased on Valentine’s Day. Don’t go home just yet, back it up with a movie at Reading Cinemas and snuggle away to the latest big screen release and a special $20 combo deal for two (call the cinema or check their website for session times).


Gather your Gals

Made famous by character Leslie Knope of TV’s Parks and Recreation, Galentine’s Day on February 13 is dedicated to celebrating friendship, rather than romance. Open to singles and attached ladies alike, Galentine’s Day encourages women to leave their partners at home and enjoy some quality time with their favourite ladies (think brunch, coffee, a shopping spree or a mani-pedi date). This Galentine’s Day, Reading Cinemas is offering an advanced screening of What Men Want starring Taraji P. Henson. Look for their special Galentine’s Day offer (1 large popcorn, 2 large drinks, 2 choc tops) for just $20.


DIY Date Night

On a budget? You don’t need to spend a fortune to be romantic. If your bae is more of the home body type then surprise them with a special home-cooked meal or a romantic picnic for two – the team at Woodgrove Deli can help you to choose all the perfect ingredients for a delicious outing. Prefer to stay at home? Stock up on seafood at Fishmaster and the freshest in seasonal produce at De Marias Fruit & Veg for a romantic feast fit for a king (and queen). Set the mood with scented candles from Dusk and Bed Bath N Table, and deck out your dining table with dinnerware, napery and wine glasses from Salt & Pepper and Zoe’s Kitchen
