Give the gift of love with Australia Post

With February 14th fast approaching, it’s time to find the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for the one (or ones) you love. Whether it’s the gift of tech, a new appliance for the kitchen, gifts under $20 or an object to splurge on, the Australia Post Online Shop has something for everyone. Here are our top tips on how to choose the perfect gift for your loved one.

1. Find a gift that shows you know your partner 

A dozen red roses is one way to demonstrate that you care but nothing says I love you more than a gift that shows you really know your partner. Think about their passions or hobbies. Do they love music, film, fitness or whipping something up in the kitchen? Perhaps they’ve recently been eyeing off something new. Whether it’s something practical or a treat, showing you know them and that you listen can be more valuable than diamonds.  

2. If in doubt, ask around 

If you’re in the early stages of romance or you’re fresh out of ideas, try asking your partner’s family and friends for ideas for something they might desperately want or need. When news filters back that you’ve been doing your research, you might even get brownie points for the extra thought and effort.  

3. Get a gift at just the right level 

Whether you’ve been together two weeks or twenty years, choosing a gift that’s equal to the level your relationship is at is important. You don’t want to go to too much effort and send your new love running or put in too little and upset your life partner. So think about the message you want your gift to convey and how you want your partner to feel when they receive it.  

4. Don’t blow your budget 

Never underestimate the value of a few carefully chosen words. Valentine’s Day is a day to show you care but if you can’t afford to splash out, just sending a card with a thoughtful and heartfelt message is more than enough.
