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:


“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.


“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.



“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.


“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.


“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.


“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.


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!
