How to win hearts in Newcastle this Valentine’s Day

We don’t know about you, but we’re big (big) fans of Valentine’s Day here at Newcastle Live.

It’s the one day a year even the most hapless romantics get a chance to show their significant other just how much they mean to them.

Here are some top local gift ideas for this V day!

I Want to Know What Love Is
Civic Theatre

Joyous. Sexy. Heartbreaking. Take a dizzying ride through love’s collision course. Based on 800 anonymous love stories submitted by you, your friends and your exes, ‘I Want To Know What Love Is’ throws a spotlight on long-buried memories, bedroom fantasies, crushes and conquests as secret confessions are transformed into magnificent declarations centre stage. This is for everyone who’s ever loved. Anyone who’s ever hurt. This is for you.

Novotel Newcastle Beach

Start your Valentine’s Day evening off with one of a selection of specialty cocktails, relax in the alfresco seating area with a Strawberry Daiquiri – go on you deserve it. Book in at Bistro Dalby for a shared set menu which starts with a complimentary glass of sparkling or beer. The Asian inspired menu which includes house-made bread, a mixture of appetisers including an amazing 16 hour beer-braised pork belly, steamed barramundi, crispy skin chicken, and a dessert tasting plate will satisfy all your Valentine’s Day cravings. And if you are looking for a real treat for you and your love – take advantage of the accommodation and retire upstairs for the night. Situated within the picturesque suburb of Newcastle East, why not enjoy an early morning walk along Newcastle Beach and a delicious coffee the next day?

The Kingfish, Honeysuckle

What better way to enjoy the day dedicated to love with your special one than by feasting on a divine fresh seafood selection, accompanied by a sensational range of refreshments all whilst taking in the picturesque view of the Newcastle harbour. No Valentines Day is complete without the Kingfish’s succulent Sydney Rock Oysters served with house-made vinaigrette, perfectly paired with a glass, or bottle, of delicate, light and fresh The Duchess Sparkling. The ultimate date night is uniting with your loved one over a delectable Seafood Platter for 2. So book in to secure a table. Or maybe you want to delight with a romantic picnic or a cosy night in? Pre-order a pickup takeaway.

Single, foot-loose and fancy free? The Kingfish have you covered. Phone your besties and tell them it’s date night. They take group bookings – make V-Day a party – give them a call to book.

Event Cinemas

Thinking of spoiling your someone special, a Gold Class Valentine’s Day package at Event Cinemas Kotara could be just the ticket. With the newly released ‘What Men Want’ on the screen and fantastically cosy love seats to relax in, all you have to do to complete the romantic scene is select the package that suits. With prices starting from $20 per person for the movie, you can then just add on your food and beverage options – so much to choose from, and let love win. Jump on and book now and get organised for Valentine’s Day.


Maker Store

Nothing says I love you better than a handmade gift, so why not go somewhere where you can get everything all in one fell swoop. Maker store is run by 4 incredible women who well… all make stuff! From jewellery, to flowers, essential oils, to organic panties, they have it all.

The Grateful

Flowers. Check. Amazing clothes. Check. Jewellery. Check. Valentine’s Day vibes. Check. Local business. Also check. The grateful is situated on Young street in Carrington, and coincidently is also run by an amazing group of kickass women. They also donate to charity too which is bloody awesome if you ask me. Head in store or online!

Secret Book Stuff

Did someone say books? #yesforeverandalways. Why not send your secret admirer a secret book? Each book comes wrapped in 100% recycled materials and will be hand picked and delivered to your door with love. Also… not as loved up as you’d like? Lucky for you Secret Book Stuff are doing a Galentine’s Day box for you and your closest gal pals. #winning

Miss Mays Picnics

Hey wow how lucky are you! You’ve already got your #1 bae but oh my goodness what to do what to do what to do on the special day?! Why not have a picnic? Better yet, why not get the good folks at Miss Mays Picnics to organise the food for you, all you need to do is pick the destination. Again #winning

Myrtle and Pepper Chocolate

Whoever says they don’t want chocolate or candy for V Day is spreading fake news and ruining it for everyone else, especially when it’s as good as the chocolate from local chocolatiers Myrtle and Pepper. These aren’t your regular run of the mill last minute Cadbury blocks either no no no. These are artisan chocolates inspired by the very land we walk on! Why not head to their website and order something delicious for your someone delicious.
