Valentine's Day Gift ideas

MC Dental's Valentine's Day Gift Guide

Finding a gift for your loved one can be daunting. Look no further than MC Dental’s Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas. Hopefully, with some extra guidance, you will find the perfect gift this Valentine’s Day. 

 1. Flowers are a classic and timeless gift

 If you decide on natural flowers, find out if your dearest has allergies. A safe and inexpensive option would be to gift a bunch of native flowers that won’t aggravate allergies and irritate with potent scents. Also, try to pre-purchase or order your bunch of flowers in advance as the florist will be busy leading up to Valentine’s Day.

Alternatives to natural flowers range from silk flowers, foam flowers, plastic flowers to paper flowers and those made from latex. 

MC Dental recommends that you gift your loved one with his/ her favourite flower. A little bit of research is required but will show that you made an extra effort with the gift type. 

2. Chocolates (A small amount is okay)

Sugar is the number one reason for tooth decay. Therefore, MC Dental recommends sweets be consumed in moderation. Melbourne and surrounds have many chocolate cafes and stores including Koko BlackHaigs ChocolatesKitKat and Lindt. Additionally, you can shop with ease online from many chocolate confectionaries.   

Tip: Try and go that extra mile and find out if your loved-one prefers milk, dark or white chocolate. Also, are nuts, nougat and raisins okay to eat?

3. A Gift Card

Let your loved-one shop with the flexibility and convenience of choosing where to redeem the Gift Card. At MC Dental, Melbourne Central, gift cards (available online or at our Guest Service Desk) are valid with any MC Dental treatment/ or appointment. Gift Cards are valid for three years from the date of issue. For more information, please contact MC Dental directly on 8608-8971. 

4. A local Melbourne experience

Look no further than Melbourne. We are fortunate to have an abundance of options. A lot of businesses have reopened and taking bookings. Visit WhatsonMelb for information on theatre, musicals, shows, the Australian Open, etc. Also a day trip, a walk along the beach or in the park is an option if you’re looking for something low-key. Note: Melbourne Central and Westfield Doncaster will celebrate Chinese New Year, aka Lunar New Year, from February 1st. 

5. Cook, eat out or food delivery

Your decision will depend on your time constraints, family situation, food allergies, and budget. Cooking is rewarding and generally the cheapest option while taking your loved one to a restaurant is usually relaxing and hassle-free. If you can organise a babysitter, our recommendation is to eat out and enjoy some quiet time. 

Tip: If you’re looking for suggestions on where to eat out,  Gourmet TravellerGoodfood and The Urban List is a good start. 

6. Cosmetic Dentistry Gifts

Is your loved-one dreaming of whiter and brighter teeth? At MC Dental, we have several tooth whitening options (teeth whitening Poladay take-home kits) available to suit different budgets $189-$395. This unisex gift is suitable for patients that have already received approval for teeth whitening by a dentist. For more information, please contact MC Dental on 03 8608-8968. 

7. Give yourself a little TLC

Often at busy times of the year, such as Valentine’s Day and Chinese New Year, we are too busy pleasing loved ones and forget about what is important to our health.  Regular six-month check-ups and oral hygiene cleans with your dentist can ensure that you’re on top of your oral health. If you have not seen a dentist in a while, please contact MC Dental. Our friendly team at Melbourne Central, Docklands and Doncaster are here to help you seven days a week. 

To celebrate Chinese New Year, MC Dental will be giving away $100 gift cards to three lucky patients. Simply, visit an MC Dental clinic (Melbourne Central, Westfield Doncaster or Docklands) between February 12th to 21st February to go into the draw to WIN a $100 Gift Card. There are 2 x $100 Melbourne Central gift cards and 1 x $100 Westfield Doncaster gift card to win. The winners will be drawn on Monday, 22nd February.
