Whether you love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day has a habit of creeping up on us year after year. A holiday is a gift that is bound to keep your other half happy, and not only will it earn you a heap of brownie points, it’s something you can cherish as well!

The team at Flight Centre have put together their top three holiday spots for you to spoil your loved one with an experiential gift this Valentine’s Day.

1. Take a Long Weekend to Melbourne

Just a quick flight and you’re already a world away; Melbourne is an absolute hot spot and perfect for a romantic weekend getaway.

It’s a well known shopper’s paradise - check out the Queen Victoria Market, an open-air market that has been a popular spot with locals for over 125 years.

While on your Melbourne holiday, combine the city lights with a wine tour. With more than 70 award-winning wineries, a host of delicious restaurants, luxury accommodation and gorgeous scenery, the Yarra Valley is the perfect escape.

2. Say Aloha to Hawaii

It’s the destination that’s on the lips of most Kiwis looking for a holiday and there’s no better time to take advantage of the amazing deals to Hawaii.

From the famous stretches of Waikiki beach surrounded by high rise buildings to the less touristy island of Maui, a Hawaii holiday will fulfil every need with sun, sand, surf and shopping.

3. Rest & Relaxation, Raro Style

Ranking highly in the relaxation stakes, on a Rarotonga holiday you can literally ‘stop and flop’ onto one of the many beautiful beaches.

There’s plenty of activities to keep you both entertained between snorkelling sessions – check out the local markets on a Saturday morning, scooter your way around the island, take a cross-island trek or cool off at one of the waterfalls. You could even treat yourselves to his and hers massages.
