10 fun ideas for Valentine’s Day dates in Elsternwick Village

Steeped in history and dotted with storefronts over a century old, to stroll through Elsternwick Village is to immerse oneself in charm and romance.

This is precisely why Elsternwick Village is the ideal backdrop for a very special Valentine’s Day date.

This year, Elsternwick Village has pulled out all the stops to deliver a Valentine’s Day date to remember.

Here are 10 ideas for creating the perfect Valentine’s Day date in Elsternwick – but don’t limit yourself to just one! Valentine’s Day is that one celebration where too much is never enough.

  1. It’s a classic date option at a classic cinema! It doesn’t matter if you choose an old black and white film or the latest blockbuster, Classic Cinemas, with its ornate fittings, plush seating and old-world charm, guarantees romance.
  2. Candle-lit dinners are another traditional Valentine’s Day choice, favoured by the loved-up looking for an evening of conversation and staring longingly into each other’s eyes. Elsternwick Village offers a range of authentic international dining experiences that will transport your taste buds to the world’s most romantic destinations.
  3. Taking a fitness class might seem like an obscure way to spend Valentine’s Day but it’s no secret that couples who work out together stay together. Here are a few fun ways to get fit.
  4. It’s the perfect weather for a surprise lunch date. Pack a picnic basket with goodies from a bakery in Elsternwick Village, head to the Elsternwick Plaza gardens, and picnic under a tree that has witnessed a century of stolen kisses and declarations of love.
  5. Nothing says I love you more than clinking glasses and making a toast to each other. Sip on a cocktail or order that bottle of champagne – however you choose to celebrate, do so at one of these quirky Elsternwick bars.
  6. Book in for a couples’ massage – a blissful way to get into the mood for romance.
  7. You need wine from the bottle shop and flowers from the florist. No discussion, just do it.
  8. Everyone loves receiving jewellery for Valentine’s Day, and Elsternwick Village jewellers have pieces that range from funky and interesting, to sweet and thoughtful, to ‘I want to spend the rest of my life with you’.
  9. What could be better than planning that long-discussed holiday or weekend away? Pop into one of Elsternwick’s travel agencies and let one of the staff design a getaway perfect for the both of you.
  10. Now, if you are reading this at 4pm on Valentine’s Day, you’re looking for a last-minute gift – and Elsternwick Village can help out there too. Pop into any pharmacy and pick up a bottle of perfume, or a beautifully presented pampering pack.

As you can see, there are plenty of ways to enjoy Valentine’s Day in Elsternwick Village – all you have to do is get a little creative.
