Melbourne, here are some last minute ideas for Valentine's Day

2 min read

No silent treatement for you!

In case you didn't realise, it's Valentine's Day.

And if you're in a relationship - you're either not doing anything, you've organised dinner and flowers OR you forgot and you have nothing prepared but you should.

Don't stress we have some last minute ideas so your partner doesn't give you the silent treatment. 

What to do:

QV Melbourne's Outdoor Cinema is launching their new season on Valentine's Day with an all-out female empowering event featuring the multi-award winning festival queens Fringe Wives Club, perfect for a girls night out or a fun love-celebration with an LGBTI partner. There will even be female pups (yes, doggos - Instafamous ones) celebrating in their best bridesmaids outfits, as it is a dog friendly screening - for the first time, the cinema is welcoming dogs to EVERY SINGLE SCREENING!

In the CBD, Natural History Public Bar’s pianist Matt Ganim will play love-song dedications – get your requests ready. More information and bookings here.

Sugar Republic is hosting an adults-only evening session which means you and your honey can frolic in the candy-pink ball pit. There’ll be free ice-cream and lollies, and a host of other sweet treats. 


These Melbourne restaurants were listed as a few of OpenTable's top 50 romantic restaurants in the whole of Australia - give a couple a call to see if you can squeeze in:

What to give:

The iconic Flinders Lane pub, Garden State Hotel has partnered with Clover Flowers for a Valentines Day Pop Up Florist Shop - perfect for the city workers! 

Stop by Brunetti on the way home. You can get a 6, 12 or 24 piece chocolate gift box that certainly doesn't look like you've just stopped at your local supermarket. 

Also, in-store at Brunetti patrons will be able to enjoy a dessert duo and flutes of prosecco for $40 as a sweet way to celebrate San Valentino.
