Our Fave... Valentine's Day Gifts

Posted on Feb 6, 2014

From sweets to jewels, to stylish duds and a cool piece of contemporary art - our design team is sharing their picks for Valentine's Day gifts they'd LOVE to give and get!

Heart love lamps

Love Lamps by Thrush Holmes are at the top of my Valentine's wish list this year. They're classic, symbolic and seriously stylish - plus they last a lot longer than flowers or chocolate. - Tommy

Retail: $3,000

I loved it back in 2006 when I first saw this poster on the cover of Domino Magazine and I still love it now, as it hangs in my home office. If you're looking for an alternative from the traditional heart shape box of chocolates, this poster is the perfect Valentine's Day gift with its red and pink colour palette and the simple, sweet message. - Jenny

Available at: Super Rural

Retail: $65

A poster that says "for like ever"
A scarf

With the never-ending winter we are having in Canada, I'm constantly wearing a scarf, both indoors and out. I like my scarves to make a statement with pattern and colour, and this playful gauze one from DVF would be a good reminder to share the love all year long. It will be an easy piece to pair with dark denim and a crisp white shirt or navy jacket. I say wear your heart on your sleeve (or neck) and tell the world you're full of love! - Sarah

A handwritten note
a beautiful and thoughtful card

I love receiving (and giving) a beautiful and thoughtful card.  Valentine's Day is all about letting the ones we love know how much they mean to us, and what better way to do that than with a heartfelt handwritten love letter!  - Tara

They say the key to a girl's heart is chocolate. In my case it must come in the form of dark cocoa cupcakes with vanilla icing from Prairie Girl Bakery. They are literally to die for! - Jillian
