Make that special someone feel extra special on Valentines Day with these treats

The history of Valentines Day dates back to Middle Ages but none of that really matters these days. For one day only, on 14 February, the colours of red and white will become a theme for those that celebrate the day (or month) of love.

Restaurants will be filled with couples enjoying a romantic dinner. Men are often referred to as unromantic type, but there are a select few that are serious about the day and often go all out to show their irretrievable love for the other.

To a woman, it is the effort and time spent that matters more than the money spent on dinner at a posh establishment or fancy red roses – although the latter will almost always melt their heart.

If you’re wanting to treat that special someone on Valentines Day, Gumtree lists a few ways in which to have them smiling from ear to ear:

Romantic hamper

This can include various items like plush teddy bears, decadent chocolates or even a hand-written letter. There are many companies that provide package and delivery services, but doing everything yourself has a sense of originality to it.

Pamper package

All females love to be pampered and there is no better way to do so than at a spa day. There are places all around the country that offer various packages – each with their own extensive treatments. Mangwanani and the Radisson Hotel are some of the most popular places.

Special treats

In keeping with the Valentines Day theme, many places will be offering special deals and discounts on things like hotel stays, game reserve drives or picnics in the winelands.

Now that you’ve got the knowledge, it’s time to shop! Head to or your Gumtree app (click for Apple & Android) and don’t forget to use your location settings to find local automotive car and bakkie information close to home.
