The best things come in pairs - don’t forget that the special person in your life doesn't always need to be a significant other.
Whether it’s your best friend, lover, mother, daughter, brother, and so on, here’s your chance to show them you care.
At Monte & Coe, we believe that the best gifts are ones that are made slowly, ethically and will be loved for years to come.
Not sure how to show your Valentine some special appreciation? We curated a Valentine's Day gift guide with items from local businesses that will all stand the test of time.
Gone are the days of a dozen roses, gift a plant this year. So long as they receive adequate care and attention, plants can flourish for years.
Not sure if your Valentine has a green thumb? There are countless types of plants that need little to no care. Think succulents, cactus’, air plants, and so on, or ask your local garden centre.

2. Matching Sweatsuits
Nothing says romance more than a good old fashioned sweatsuit. Lounge around with your Valentine in matching sweatsuits from a few of our local favourites.
Why the emphasis on locally made? When an item is locally made, it supports the economy, is likely ethically manufactured and fair trade, and of higher quality.

Diamonds are a girl’s (and everyone’s) best friend. High quality jewellery can truly last a lifetime, especially when handcrafted using quality materials.
