Valentine’s Day is a celebration of love, appreciation, and admiration of those dearest to us. We’ve come a long way since the times of love having to be expressed in secret; now doting on the ones we love with romantic or platonic displays of affection. This Valentine’s Day, Woolies celebrates how much we appreciate you, with a range of gifting options, including foodie gifts, fabulous foliage, fashion and accessories, bath and beauty items.

 

We know all too well the excitement of surprise. As we cautiously begin to emerge from a period of great uncertainty and separation from our loved ones, why not use this time to reconnect in new ways? Let’s show our appreciation to those who have remained close to our hearts when physical distance was encouraged. Woolies has a ton of ideas for you to choose from, so you can get Valentine’s Day exactly right this year.

 

Diamonds might be a girl (or guy’s) best friend, but sweet treats are the real way to win hearts. Woolies’ range of decadent delights promises to ignite all the feelings of warmth and endearment that good old St Valentine intended. Our Heart Shaped Vanilla Flavoured Biscuit, enrobed in milk chocolate, is the perfect combination of tea-time treat and chocolatey indulgence. Those classic favourites, the Mallow Pie, and the Cutie Pie is sure to bring fond memories to the fore, and chocolate hearts filled with salted caramel or hazelnut praline provide those little doses of moreish pleasure. Or keep it simple, with a single heart chocolate. Woolies favourites are all dressed up in their Valentine’s Day best, with the Chuckles Heart Tin, or the Milk Chocolate Slab with Fantastical Eggs. What’s not to love, when you know that the cocoa in our chocolate is sustainably sourced, creating a better future for farmers, their families, and the planet.

 

If adorable surprises are what sets your intended’s heart aflutter, perhaps a novelty Valentine’s gift is just the thing. For the avid bookworm, there’s the two-piece locally made heart shaped bookmarks, with mini milk chocolate slabs; or leave daily reminders of how much you care with a Note Mate – sticky notes with a mini milk chocolate slab. A cute little Cuddle Buddy, which comes with a card is just the right amount of adorable to brighten up any day.

 

Help that special someone indulge in some well-deserved personal care time, with Woolies’ range of body scrubs, masks and soothing lotions. Or try our branded body products, like Natures Extracts body soufflé and Calming Quartz Bath Crystals, or Longmarket ‘Romantic Rose’ Hand & Nail Cream. Allow a scent to linger a little longer with Woolies’ magnificent range of the finest fragrances. Perhaps a bottle of Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male Le Parfum or Versace Eros for him, and she’ll bask in the fragrance of Lancôme La Vie Est Belle, Narciso Rodriguez Ambrée or Bella Rose from WBeauty.

 

Add a dash of colour with WBeauty Hydro Lipstick, Eyeshadow Pallet or Cream Blush Stick. All our WBeauty products are 100% vegan and endorsed by Beauty Without Cruelty. Estee Lauder, Clarins, Clinique, Bobbi Brown, Lancôme and Elizabeth Arden add to the range of luxury beauty and skincare products. Makeup goodies like the Estée Lauder Pure Colour Envy Defining Eyeshadow, or the Bobbi Brown Lip Colour, Smokey Eye Mascara or Shimmer Brick Compact, will have the recipient smiling from ear-to-ear. Give his morning a fresh start, with WBeauty Longmarket Barber Men’s Exfoliating Face Wash, and Moisturiser. And if the man in your life takes great pride in maintaining his mane, WBeauty Longmarket Barber Beard Oil will make sure his beard is perfectly groomed and soft to the touch.

 

Spread the love throughout the object of your affection’s home – or your own home – with a gorgeous selection of homeware from the Valentine’s Day range. Set the scene with the soothing scents of a wide range of fragrance diffusers and scented candles. If she loves making sure her house feels like home, why not spoil her with a stunning piece from our collection; like an elegant Heart-shaped Plate or bowl, or an elegant Slim Neck Vase from Studio.w.

 

Or perhaps you’d like to be the first thing on his or her mind as they start their day with a freshly brewed cup of coffee in a simple, yet stylish Soho or Nevada mug. Valentine’s Day love mugs are, of course, always a win – what’s cheesy for one, is another person’s perfect symbol of romance. And who wouldn’t love heading off on a morning commute with a sweet Valentine Eco Travel Mug filled with their favourite beverage.

 

Sophisticated and distinguished, cheeky and sensual – Woolworths’ lingerie is always a must for Valentine’s Day spoils. Choose from a selection of gorgeous options, like the X Black Essential Criss Cross Brazilian set, paired with a super chic Black Glamour Lace Gown; or the X Black Essential Criss Cross Padded Bodysuit, if you’re feeling a little more daring. Be the sassy lady in red with our  Tribal Lace Plunge Padded Bodysuit, or the  Red Tulle Lace Underwire Bra with matching tanga. If cute and comfy is more your thing, the two-pack floral Chemise or Ochre Floral Print Cami with matching shorts are perfect for those Summer nights. And if your man is feeling left out, keep it simple yet special, with a Heart Candy Sleep Tee, paired with matching sleep shorts.

 

Add a twinkle to her eye, with a touch of sparkle – a stunning set of earrings, a beautiful ring, bracelet or necklace, will complete her outfit for the perfect date night. He’ll look sharp with the choice of a wide selection of ties to dress up or down; fun or formal. And the Jacquard Floral Bowtie will add just the right amount of smart and chic to his elegant ensemble. And for your littlest Valentine, there’s the cutest range of adorable tees, jackets, jeans and headbands available.

 

Love is to be celebrated, so celebrate we must, and Woolies’ range of bubbly never fails to impress. Choose from a selection of the finest wines – make the evening extra special with a bottle of Pierre Jourdan Sparkling Tranquille Blush, Woolworths Spumante Rosé or Stormhoek Sparkling Moscato Rosé. Or perhaps the Simonsig Satin Nectar Cap Classique or the Simonsig Satin Nectar Rosé Cap Classique, now in newly designed bottles, which will look fantastic on a table set for two.

 

Nothing says ‘I love you’ quite like a beautiful bunch of bright flowers, or a gorgeously green new plant – and Woolies leaves you quite spoilt for choice in that department. Choose from exclusive, locally grown Orchid varieties, like the Orchid in Raku, one of many of Woolies’ plants that come in a locally-made, handcrafted pot.  Perhaps a more playful pick like the Succulent Heart or the Meyhlenbeckia Heart – proudly local and exclusive to Woolies. Our classic Lover’s Bunch – 12 red roses, signature of Woolies’ long-lasting quality, is always a fave; or our long-stemmed red Tora rose, also exclusive to Woolies. Whatever your choice, there’s a bit of greenery for every taste or mood.

 

When you’ve finally decided on the perfect gift, wrap it up with love and seal it with a kiss, in one of our lovely Valentine’s Day themed gift bags, and you’ll be set to impress!
