Picture: CHRISTINE ANSORGE WHY not treat your loved one to an intimate meal for two at the Gap View Hotel this Valentines Day. Weve got a lunch or dinner shared menu offer for $89 per couple, marketing manager Ang Wright said. The venue is huge so if you want to sit outside where no one is close by, you can do that.

Christine Ansorge Dinners for two and a hairdo pamper VALENTINES Day is almost upon us and what better way to show your special someone how much you love them by giving them a gift from the heart. For many it may be a time to shop for a romantic piece of jewellery. Alice Plaza Hourglass Jewellery sales assistant Chloe Skoss said jewellery is a special gift that you can buy a loved one. Jewellery is one of those things that when you receive it as a gift it has a lot of memories forever, Ms Skoss said. You remember who gave it to you, when they gave it to you and the occasion. Jewellery is special; you can pass it down and cherish it. Opening its doors on January 5 this year Hourglass Jewellery has continued to maintain a high quality of professionalism and expertise. Manager Natasha Tivendale said its all about customer service. The girls treat everyone the same. We value our customers and we are here to try and help them in any way, Ms Tivendale said. This Valentines Day Hourglass jewellery is offering a free $49 pendant when $100 is spent on an item out of the endless love catalogue. For others when they think of Valentines Day chances are a dozen long stem roses comes to mind. However, owner and manager of Alice Springs Flower Studio Eseta de jong said that things are changing. Most people love roses but other flowers are also becoming more popular, Ms de jong said. Flowers such as carnations, orientals and lilies are fast becoming a hit at this time of year. Teddies are also a very popular way to say I love you and there is no shortage of them at Alice Springs Flower Studio. Ms de jong anticipates this Valentines Day to be a very busy time. I expect its going to be a massive and busy day. People are already starting to place orders for Valentines Day, she said.
