Last Minute Valentine’s Day 2018 Ideas
Spoil yourself (or your lover!) this Valentine’s Day 2018
Love it or hate it, it looks like Valentine’s Day came to South Africa to stay. And whether you are involved with someone or as single as a sock in the dryer, you can’t deny that you can have a really good time with all the V-day specials around.
So, with Valentine’s Day just a day away, here are a couple of those deals to help you make last minute plans (for yourself or your lover).
Cotton On Body
No, giving lingerie on Valentine’s Day will never go out of fashion… and, ladies, the same goes for spoiling yourself on the Day of Love! Cotton On Body has just released a brand new Valentine’s Day range, available in stores now. The range consists of colourful pieces (not just pink and red), and there’s something for every girl!

These two items are my personal favourite:
The Cotton Company
But yes, I know, not all ladies like underwear, so here’s another idea. The Cotton Company stocks a range of iconic Turkish Towels in hues of Pinks and Reds. Also known as pestamals or hammam towels, The Cotton Company’s Turkish towel is the ultimate in quality and versatility, and a great idea for a unique gift.
These beautiful towels are lightweight and dry super-fast. They’re ideal for spas, swimming and bathrooms, and can also be used as tablecloths, blankets, sofa and bed covers, wraps and scarves. Made from natural Aegean cotton, these towels offer luxurious textures and classic comfort. All pestamals are finished with hand knotted tassel fringes, high-quality edges and to add the cherry on top – they are fluff-free and eco-friendly.
And, of course, you can’t take the food out of Valentine’s Day…
Roast & Co.
Food really is the way to our hearts, so what better way to celebrate than with an incredible meal at one of my favourite new restaurants, Roast & Co.? Impress your bird this Valentine’s Day with a delicious food and wine pairing menu at Roast & Co. with the much awarded Warwick Wine Estate.
For only only R795 per couple, dive into a feast for two with a 3-course wine-paired menu and welcome drink (excludes additional drinks & gratuity).
For enquiries and to book your spot at this soon to be annual event, simply e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or 021 424 6372. (Full payment will secure your booking).
