Ahhhh, Valentine’s Day. The day to celebrate love. What a wonderful time of the year!
With less than two weeks to go until Valentine’s Day the pressure is mounting to get your significant other the perfect gift. If you’ve been wracking your brain trying to come up with ideas, this is the list for you! We’ve got five fabulous gifts you can get right here at the Saturday Fresh Market, so read on you hopeless romantic.
1. The old faithful: Flowers
It’s one of the oldest Valentine’s Day traditions for a reason – a bouquet of roses is floral shorthand for love and passion. The gorgeous colours and fragrant scent are guaranteed to make the lucky recipient feel the love.
Of course, why constrain yourself? Multi Flowers and Freddy’s Flowers are chock full of bouquets of different sizes, colours and shapes that will suit any budget.
Worried about the fleeting nature of a bouquet of fresh flowers? Keep an eye out for natives along with dried and preserved flowers to keep the love going longer, or consider giving a potted plant so the love never stops.
2. Sparkling gems: Jewellery and accessories
Another Valentine’s classic. If diamonds are a bit out of budget, we’ve got something just right for you! With lots of unique and handcrafted jewellrey and other trinkets to choose from you’re sure to find a great gift for everyone.
Aspire Crystals and Wellness, Designs by Sparrow, Ken’s Watches, Dom’n’8 Designs, Trend Patrol Sunglasses and Rayell’s Homewares are just a selection of the stallholders to browse for presents.
3. Decadent delights: Sweets treats
Fall in love with the many and varied gourmet treats on offer at the Saturday Fresh Market. The Little Gingerbread Cottage bakes delightful Valentine’s themed gingerbread fresh for the market. Because doesn’t everyone want to be told they’re loved by cookie-gram?
If you’re looking for other tasty sweets, I am ARI, Amy Saregeantson Chocolates, Sweet Confections and our huge range of bakery stalls can sort you out with a delicious selection of chocolates and other sweet treats.
4. Gifts for greenthumbs: Plants and pots
