Valentine’s Gift ideas at Mainstream Mall

It’s Valentine’s ❤️ day tomorrow and at Mainstream Mall we celebrate all forms of love. Whether you’re buying something special for your significant other, or advocating for a month of self-love, we back you 100%.

And we’re here to help you choose your gift.

From traditional Valentine’s flowers, hearts and chocolates to something a little less pink and red, here are our top picks:

  1. FLOWERS

“Flowers are loves truest language”.

We had to start with the obvious. Mainstream Mall is certainly your go-to place for blooms of all colours and meanings. We love something different like orchids – the most highly coveted of ornamental plants, the delicate, exotic and graceful orchid represents love, luxury, beauty and strength. Visit Woolworths and Pick n Pay for all the Valentine’s blooms your heart desires.

2. BEAUTY  & FRAGRANCE

“Beauty is not in the face, beauty is a light in the heart”.

That may be true but a beautiful face and body to match may help… Which is why beauty and fragrance gifts stand at number 2 on our list. And we have a host of options. From Body Shop and Sorbet products and gorgeous gift sets at Clicks (many of which are on sale), pretty-in-pink nail varnishes at Sorbet, to  high-end make up brands at Wheelers Pharmacy  and fragrances galore at Woolworths.

 

3. JEWELLERY

“I have enough jewellery…” Said no one ever.

Be it a statement bespoke piece created by one of our talented jewellers at the mall, or fun and carefree costume jewellery, Mainstream Mall gives you a fabulous pick of jewels. Visit Minki & Co, The Pop Up Shop, Hout Bay Contemporary, Rock Chic, Ice Jewellers and Nomad Jewellers for a wide range of jewellery to choose from.

4. ACCESSORIES & CLOTHING

“Accessories are the exclamation point of a woman”

From delicate brassieres to pretty slip slops, and  feminine hand bags to proudly South African t-shirts for him and her, there are some perfect Valentine’s gifts to be bought at Woolworths, The Pop Up shop and Big Blue.

5. CANDLES & DIFFUSERS

“Fragrance and love – these are two things that can never be hidden”.

Nap Living have a host of fabulous candles and diffusers with no pink or red in sight! Or pop into Minki & Co for a range of gorgeous candles and diffusers in various fragrances.

6. CHAMPAGNE & CHOCOLATES

“My weakness was chocolate but now it’s you”

If your weakness is still chocolate (with some champagne on the side), pop into Woolworths, Pick n Pay and Clicks who have a fantastic range of chocolates, champagne and goodies even the most hardened Valentine’s critic will devour with gusto.

7. CARDS, GIFT BAGS & BALLOONS

What’s a Valentine’s gift without a pretty gift bag, box or schmoozy card? Pop into CNA and Star Dot toys for a range of bags, gift boxes, cards, balloons

Whether you give or receive this year, we hope it’s a day filled with love all around!
