We’re already zooming through 2021 and just in case it crept up on you too… here’s a friendly reminder that Valentine’s Day is fast approaching!! Now, it’s always been important to support local business, but as we all find our feet in 2021 now even more so. Here’s a littleBIG V-day Gift Guide to help you choose the perfect gift for your loved one – BIG or small, it’s always the thought that counts 😉
There’s a little something for everyone; the impossible-to-buy-for boyfriends that buy everything for themselves, the fussiest of fussy significant others, and even the claim-to-be-V-Day-loathers. Enjoy!
Spice up Valentine’s Day this year with a pre-ordered picnic hamper with Innocent Bystander while immersed in the stunning Yarra Valley. And you get to pick your very own special location! A thoughtful, romantic, and not to mention delicious, way to spend your Valentine’s Day. Although, come to think of it, we wouldn’t be opposed to being surprised with this package any day of the year!

If you’re a classic movie date goer, you might like to step things up a notch on the BYO movie chocolate.
Our favourite chocolate company, Melbourne Cocoa, has partnered up with Innocent Bystander and whipped up a limited batch of (what we would classify as) their finest blends yet!
Gourmet shards; Cherry Berry and Rose Honeycomb pair perfectly with a bottle of Innocent Bystander Pinot Noir or Pink Moscato.

Wine, wine, and more wine…
Picking a nice wine can be a tricky task when shopping for a special occasion. So, here’s a few of our faves to help:
Pirie Sparkling Vintage Rosé, a powerful fruity pinot best paired with canapes like smoked salmon and dill mayonnaise or sweeter meals like a raspberry vanilla parfait – fancy!
Pinot Noir Rosé is a dry Rosé that’s fruit-driven and ruby blush in colour. Ultra-smooth and savoury on the palate with bright floral notes and a hint of watermelon.
