The excitement of surprising a loved one with a thoughtful gift or simply spending the day with them to show you care is the epitome of Valentine’s Day. Though as each new year passes, February 14 seems to be on our doorstop quicker than ever.
Embrace the excitement this Valentine’s Day and stroll into your local Stockland Merrylands, where you’ll find everything you need to make it one of the best yet!
Enjoy a three-course meal from home
If the idea of enjoying a tasty meal with your significant other in the comfort of your own home appeals, then this Valentine’s Day idea will ensure it’s one of the best yet.
There’s no need to make reservations to bring a little spice to your Thursday night because we’ve come up with a three-course menu you can create from home. The recipes can be as simple or as sophisticated as you’d like and the best part? You can source all of the ingredients in one convenient location, at your local Stockland Merrylands.
Only a few steps into the centre and you’ll find ZAG’s fresh seafood straight from the trawler and onto the pan. Venture a little further and you’ll come across Trims Fresh where you’ll be able to bag some vibrant veggies before heading down to Akar Halal Meats to snap up some of the best cuts of meat in the region.
The final ingredients to perfect your Valentine’s Day menu from home can be found at Green Valley Spices and if you’re really on a roll, why not add some final touches like a fresh bunch of fragrant blooms Flower Seasons, too?
Valentine’s gifts they will love
Oftentimes love can be found in the smaller details.
A cologne from City Perfume that he wore when you first met is a wonderful way to spark memories that you may not have thought of in years, or you could pick up the latest action-packed blockbuster or new-release video game from EB Games that he’s been talking about for months.
Maybe a little R&R from Lee Massage would make her smile after a busy week or if you’re time-poor like most of us, but still want to show your loved one(s) some appreciation, you could pop into Lal’s Xtra News to pick up a beautiful card. There’s something to be said about writing a love letter reminiscent of some happy memories and re-reading the message years later.

Pack up your dinner and have a picnic
Take advantage of the warm evenings before the sun sets on summer yet again, with a Valentine’s inspired picnic in the fresh air.
Make your way down to L’oven Craft Bakery to find some goodies for your basket, pull out the picnic blanket and if the babysitter isn’t available, get the kids involved to enjoy a family picnic at the Holroyd Gardens.
If the weather however is less than appealing, take the picnic and move it indoors for a surprise evening filled with love and good food.
