Valentine's Day Gift Guide 2022 - Gifts that Last a Lifetime

Valentine's Day Gift Guide 2022 - Gifts that Last a Lifetime

The best things come in pairs - don’t forget that the special person in your life doesn't always need to be a significant other. 

Whether it’s your best friend, lover, mother, daughter, brother, and so on, here’s your chance to show them you care. 

At Monte & Coe, we believe that the best gifts are ones that are made slowly, ethically and will be loved for years to come.

Not sure how to show your Valentine some special appreciation? We curated a Valentine's Day gift guide with items from local businesses that will all stand the test of time.

1. Plants

Gone are the days of a dozen roses, gift a plant this year. So long as they receive adequate care and attention, plants can flourish for years. 

Not sure if your Valentine has a green thumb? There are countless types of plants that need little to no care. Think succulents, cactus’, air plants, and so on, or ask your local garden centre. 

Best Plants for Gifts

Jomo Studios - Philodendron Hederaceum Brasil - $25

Chive - Clay Hanging Planter - $46.95

Chive - Pothos Marble Queen - $10.50

2. Matching Sweatsuits 

Nothing says romance more than a good old fashioned sweatsuit. Lounge around with your Valentine in matching sweatsuits from a few of our local favourites. 

Why the emphasis on locally made? When an item is locally made, it supports the economy, is likely ethically manufactured and fair trade, and of higher quality.

Bather - Bottle Green Crew Neck - $120

Bather - Bottle Green Crew Sweat Pant - $120

3. Ethically Sourced Jewellery 

Diamonds are a girl’s (and everyone’s) best friend. High quality jewellery can truly last a lifetime, especially when handcrafted using quality materials. 

14K gold never discolours and if crafted well, jewellery made from it will last forever. Support jewellers who source their gold, diamonds, and other raw materials ethically and responsibly. Learn more about conflict-free diamonds here.
