Top 10 Trending Experiences to Gift This Valentine’s Day

Lorena Dominguez

Valentine’s Day has become a day of clutter and clichés. Gifts like wilting roses, not-quite-right perfume, and melting chocolates don’t build connections. True love is built from shared moments, not from material things that will eventually expire, melt, or wilt away. That’s why we’ve put together a list of trending and unique experiences that are perfect to gift. From flying high in the sky to sailing across the deep blue sea, there is something for every lover.

Let Love Soar to New Heights

For those looking to take love to new heights, hot air ballooning is the ultimate way to say, “I love you”. Imagine floating gracefully high in the sky as the first rays of sunlight hit the earth – nothing is more romantic.  

Or, if you’d prefer a more enclosed vessel, a seaplane flight may be more your style. Followed by a glass of sparkling wine and a seafood feast to create an unforgettable experience across Sydney Harbour.  

If you and your partner enjoy the finer things in life, the scenic seaplane flight across Rottnest Island is the perfect combination of adventure and luxury. Indulge in a seven-course set menu at Lontara or Isola Island. You’ll also have free time to explore and meet the famous Quokkas.

Escape with Your Special One

Gift your partner a surprise romantic Blue Mountains  cottage escape, just 90 minutes from Sydney. The stunning rural haven is self-contained and set in a romantic location where you can enjoy the birds, bush, and the occasionally inquisitive wallaby.  

If you prefer the beach, the postcard-perfect views of the eco tents located on the coastline of Broome WA are the perfect option. Fall in love and enjoy the combination of the beach and bush. Sit back and relax on the private front deck or use the fishing rods and kayak for the more adventurous couple!

Alternatively, you could gift a night away in a secluded glamping  experience completely immersed in nature. Sink into a private bath in the glass house wrapped by the magnificent gardens perched high on the Strzelecki Ranges, VIC.

Sailing into Love

Let the ocean set the scene for your story, gift the experience of sailing across the Aussie coastlines, and rekindle your love by the water. 

Sunsets are nature’s way of painting the sky with hues of romance. Sail into the golden hour with a romantic catamaran sailing cruise with nibbles to share and a glass of bubbles on arrival. Keep an eye out for pods of dolphins in the water!   

Maybe you are after something with a little more luxury? The multi-million-dollar views of the iconic Sydney Harbour may just be the experience for you. Venture out on a luxurious boat gliding through the water with a delicious three-course  lunch for two.

Explore dining cruises

The best gifts are not from the store. Rather, a great gift is time together. Beyond the surface, Valentine’s Day holds the potential for something far more profound – the creation of memories. In the modern pursuit of more meaningful and lasting connections, experiences will provide moments together that will deepen bonds. Gift an experience this Valentine’s Day that will make your partner say ‘wow’.
