Our local businesses have you covered from head to toe for that perfect night out with someone special, and you’ll get those warm and fuzzy feelings too that you’re also supporting locally owned businesses while you enjoy the evening.

To kick off the day/evening, treat your significant other to a hair salon treat and book an appointment with the lovely ladies at Headz Up Hair Salon on Ferodale Road, Medowie.

Owner Karla David told News Of The Area, “Come into the salon and we’ll make sure you leave feeling nothing less than amazing for your special day with a special someone.”

You’re sure to clock up extra brownie points that they are feeling pampered even before you start the evening.

While they’re at their salon appointment, pop over and visit Sharon at Absolutely Beautiful Flowers in the main street of Raymond Terrace, and pick up a stunning bouquet of flowers, and maybe even a little gift as well.

Sharon stocks the most extensive range available locally of the decadent Glasshouse Candles, including the limited edition candle ‘Love is Love’, which is perfect for a Valentine’s Day present with meaning and sentiment.

Sharon told News Of The Area, “Our local men and women are in love all year round, and it’s so lovely to see them excited and so mushy.”

“It’s been a pleasure to see Valentine’s Day grow over my last ten years in business to be something that is so celebrated and just about caring so much for someone else.”

For dinner, we have all areas of Port Stephens and the Myall Coast covered, depending on what you’re looking for.

Sienna’s Pizzeria Bar and Restaurant at Nelson Bay are hosting a ‘Surprise your Lover’ evening, with a free glass of Presecco on arrival for couples.

The Nest Cafe in Hawks Nest is a new business on the Myall Coast that is well worth trying out.

They offer a menu with something for everyone, in a location that is perfectly situated for a stroll along the beach after lunch or dinner.

The Greenhouse Eatery in Medowie is calling on all couples to book a romantic dinner for two with them, and partake in a complimentary glass of bubbles on arrival.

Elizabeth Blyth, the Greenhouse Marketing and Events Manager, told News Of The Area, “Show your loved one how much you care by booking dinner with us.”

“You can indulge in one of our special treats, or anything from our regular menu that you know and love.”

“We pride ourselves in providing the highest quality food and service,” she said.

Whatever your plans for Valentine’s Day, News Of The Area hope you are spending it with someone special.
