Valentine’s Day is coming up and before your blood pressure starts to rise, relax. Take a deep breath. The key to finding unique Valentine’s Day gifts for her in Sydney all comes down to knowing your partner, something you are most likely a pro at. Your girlfriend or wife is special and one-of-a-kind, so the Valentine’s Day ideas for her that you come up with and the gift you decide on should be unique too.
There are two common mistakes that partners make when it comes to Valentine’s Day gifts for women. One mistake is the generic gift - chocolates, flowers, breakfast in bed, a card. While these are a good start, they definitely shouldn’t be the main event. Finding something extra-thoughtful is what will surprise and delight her.
The other common mistake is the overly extravagant gift. It might seem thoughtful to spend a month worth of savings on a gorgeous necklace or an expensive pair of earrings, and hey, if that’s what she asked for, go with that. But the majority of women don’t actually want a piece of jewellery that they didn’t pick out themselves and is so flashy that they can’t wear it day-to-day. Instead, a lot of the time it ends up collecting dust in the box on her dresser.
Do you know what the really simple solution is when you’re scratching your head trying to think of Valentine’s gifts for her? Think about what she actually likes. Does she paint? Does she read? Does she love coffee? Does she like trying new foods or hobbies? Every woman has something that brings her joy, and you should highlight that. A gift option like this will have her feeling the love no matter what she’s into.
Opting for unique experience gifts in Sydney is the perfect way to show her that you care. This way you’re showing her that you’re interested in what she likes and most importantly you want to spend time with her, whatever that involves. Valentine’s Day is the perfect chance to make time for her, be romantic and relive all your exciting milestones as a couple, which is what women care the most about on V-Day. To her, it’s not about how lavish or expensive a gift is, but instead the time you spend together, because that’s what proves attentiveness and will give her all the butterflies inside.
So prepare for sparks to fly and romance to bloom with these top romantic things to do in Sydney, the perfect experiences for unique Valentine’s Day gifts for her.

Create personalised jewellery for her
Buying jewellery for your girlfriend or wife is a tricky endeavour, especially on Valentine’s Day, when the shops are flooded with heart pendants and rose-coloured jewels, which all look irritatingly similar. Every girl has her own style and taste, and it can be hard to know what she’s going to love. So, why not scratch that whole idea and invite her to a jewellery making course instead?
In a five-hour jewellery making class, you’ll learn how to make a ring using various metals, such as copper, silver or gold. Your girlfriend or wife will have the opportunity to create her own unique design, as well as learning basic jewellery making skills such as designing, hammering, measuring and polishing.
She is definitely going to feel more attached to a piece of jewellery that you had fun making together at a class in Sydney, over one of the many Valentine’s Day inspired pieces that you picked up from a jeweller.
