10 Gift Ideas for Valentine's Day
Candy bento boxes, custom scents and a classic watch are just a few ways to treat your significant other this Valentine's Day.
Valentine's Day is just around the corner, which means it's time to start searching for the perfect gift for your significant other. Here are a few suggestions that they just might fall in love with.
Box of Macarons
Macarons from Ollia Macarons & Tea are always a welcome treat, but their Valentine's Day themed box ($29) is especially festive. The box features 10 macarons in some of the shop's most popular flavours (think Rocher, pistachio and creme brûlée), plus two chocolate dipped heart shaped macarons. Available for pre-order starting February 1.
Celine Trio Purse
The perfect accessory for any Valentine’s Day ensemble, the Celine Trio purse ($1,200) is as practical as it is stylish. With three different zippered compartments, you can keep everything organized in this bright red bag.
Cordovan Bow Tie
Keep your partner looking dapper with a bow tie from Calgary-based Mule Ties. Choose from classic patterns like plaid or the dotted Cordovan bow tie ($45), or go for something more unique like the Museo bow tie, which features a print of the famous Birth of Venus painting.
Create your own scented product at Escents Aromachology
Instead of guessing what scent your significant other might like, take them down to Escents Aromachologyy to create their own. Choose up to six essential oils to mix into a carrier oil or unscented product (such as body lotions and scrubs) and experience the benefits of aromachology.
Daniel Wellington Classic St Mawes Watch
A great watch never goes out of style. With its leather band, white face and elegant rose gold accents, that’s especially true of this Daniel Wellington timepiece ($280).
Stay cozy this winter season with the Effi Scarf ($65) from the Calgary-based designers behind Dreamboat Lucy. The faux fur scarf comes in three other colours, and can be styled three different ways for when you want to change up your look.
Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 with 10 Exposures
What better way to capture your most important moments together than with the help of an instant camera ($99.49). It comes in seven different colours and provides almost instant gratification as it prints out your photos as you take them.
Sugarfina 8 Piece Candy Bento Box
For your crush with a sweet tooth, head to Sugarfina's store within Nordstrom to put together a custom candy bento box. Choose from candies like champagne bears or go for love themed ones like the sugar lips and cherry sweethearts.
Unconditional Love Crystal Bar Soap
This locally made vegan soap ($12) will do more than just keep you clean and smelling great. Inside the bar, you’ll find a crystal Rose Quartz, aka the “Stone of Love,” whose energy can elevate your love for yourself and others.
The latest scent from D.R. Harris, Windsor ($77) is a worthy addition to any man’s shaving routine. The aftershave blends the earthy smell of vetiver with orange notes to create a classically masculine scent.
