Your Local Servo Buyer's Guide For Valentine's Day
The hours are counting down to one of the highest pressured days of the year: Valentine’s Day.
So, whether you’ve left it to the last minute, had a change of heart or just thought to err on the side of caution, we’re here to help.
We’ve scoured some servos to see what could pass as a gift that, you know, kind of looks like you’ve spent actual time thinking about.
Like a moth to a flame, servos are a haven for those with sweet teeth. The thing is, it'll cost you. Snacks aren't cheap, and when it comes to creating a gift from what is on offer, you're going to have to do better than just one pack of Oreos. Even if you buy two packets and put a ribbon around them, you're not going to get much change out of $10, especially if you buy a couple of litres of milk as a 'dipping sauce'.
Nutella is another way to show your love to your partner. Buy a couple of plastic spoons and tie it all together with ribbon. Unforgettable.
For those who have money to burn, how about taking a detour from the the 4-litre neapolitan and get some fancy-pants ice-cream? These can be surprisingly small, so best get two. So you can give one to your sweetie, and have one for yourself. Because self love is the best love.
Savoury foodies aren't left out at your local servo, but there's a trade-off here... we found those contentious 'new and improved' Pizza Shapes, BUT they're a steal at $1.
Adventurous couples into a little 50 Shades are well catered for at the servo.
Sure, lots of retail outlets are gearing up for Easter, but what a cute addition would these little fellas be with a packet of Shapes?
Is your partner a mad Star Wars fan? You can get this rad BB-8 trucker cap. You don't even have to wrap this, when presenting your partner with this gift, you can just wear this. Only this.
What better way to suggest a bit of Netflix-and-chill than with an actual gift subscription to Netflix?
...but you might also need these...
If all else fails, a full tank of petrol may not seem romantic, but it's never not appreciated (I'm serious, it happened to me).
Happy Valentine's Day!
