Tokens of love are all around us

LOVE is in the air, and with Valentine's Day just around the corner, what better way to treat your better half than by purchasing gifts from one of Charleville's many stores scattered across town.

There are always the proven and traditional gift ideas such as flowers and cards, but it never hurts to think outside the square when it comes to showing that special person in your life just how much you care.

Maybe your partner will appreciate a freshly cleaned home courtesy of Steers Cleaning on Frawley St. They do some great deals that won't break the bank while also leaving your home sparkling clean.

Jenny Steers, owner of Steers Cleaning, said her business offered a diverse range of cleaning services for sprucing up living spaces or even pest control.

"We're not limited to anything really, we can offer a fairy godmother service for any cleaning situation whether it's for bathroom or carpet cleaning.”

Flowers will never go out of fashion at this time of year and a beautiful bouquet is a fantastic way of showing your loved ones just how much they mean to you.

Cottage Flowers and Garden in Charleville can deliver a vast range of assorted flowers to people in and around Charleville or across the world.

Store owner Judy Moore said the store offered a wide range of gifts that were certain to appeal to the masses.

"We have a lovely range of roses, teddy bears and chocolates. We will have them on display in-store if anyone would like to call in and have a look at the range,” she said.

"We can also organise deliveries around the southwest or around the world - as long as people can get their orders in early to avoid disappoint, as we try to stock for as much as we think we will need.”

No gift is complete without an accompanying gift card that expresses your true thoughts and feelings, and this can be picked up from the Charleville Newsagency, which stocks a large range of cards for any occasion.

The shop also sources other great gift ideas and books that will no doubt leave you in your partner's good books.

Lastly, there's no better way to spend time with someone you love than at your local cafe over a hot cup of coffee or tea.

The Black Sheep Cafe in Charleville and Heinemann's Cafe in Quilpie both offer quality light meals and drinks and provide a relaxed, romantic setting.
