With February 14th right around the corner, we suggest thinking outside the chocolate box. Whether you’re celebrating a romance, hanging out with your Palentines, snuggling your babies and/or furbabies, or enjoying a night-in alone (self-care!), you’ll be seeing red – (in a good way!) with this list of Valentine’s Day gift ideas.
For the skincare loving mom
We are loving the Rose + Glow Oil by Canadian Indie brand Leah Skin. It contains Vitamin C, Rose Oil, Squalane, Camellia Oil, Meadofoam Oil, Abyssinian Oil. I mix it in with my night time moisturizer and in the morning I wake up like the glowing goddess I was before I had kids.
For The Active Mom
I like these wireless headphones because not only they are great value for the price, when your teenager borrows them and ultimately looses them it won’t be so hard on the wallet. They are perfect for when I am doing stuff around the house, I can listen to my latest Netflix addiction and not miss a moment. For the Mom with a Sweet Tooth

If you love sweets, Nadège Patisserie’s delicate and delicious macarons are sure to please. Who needs a dozen roses when you can personally select a box of mouth-watering macarons? Baked fresh daily, choose from romance-inducing flavours like ‘Rose,’ ‘Peruvian Chocolate’ or limited-edition ‘Red Velvet.’ Add in a glass of bubbly and that is my ideal way to “self-care”.

Ahh, our furbabies – the most lovable of all! Snuggling our pets is essential but, it can also get a little hairy, leaving pet hair all over our brand new insta-worthy sofa and rugs (not to mention, clothes). With the help of the no-nonsense Shark®Rocket® Pet Pro Cordless Stick Vacuum with Self-Cleaning Brushroll in a rambunctious red, you can qquickly and easily clean up hair and dirt faster than cupid shoots his arrow.
For the fashionista mom

I am all about the hair accesories this season. I have lost count of how many of these these hair scrunchie scarf combos I have. I always have one hanging off my mom tote bag, not only is practical to have on hand it also perks up my everyday tote. So why not give the fashionista mom in your life a little something to elevate the school run mom bun.
For the Foodie Mom

Show off your culinary skills by serving a home-made crème brûlée or chocolate soufflé in these valentine red 3 Piece Mini Stoneware Set by Lagostina. I love that they have lids too, it makes storing the leftovers in the fridge so much easier and always makes serving all that more fancy feeling when your guests lift the lids and oh and ah that you didn’t burn something for once. They easily go from oven, to table, to fridge and even the dishwasher.
For Mom and her Girlfriends

We all wish we had a little more time for girls night but when you finally do find the time, treat yourselves to this Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon, it is full-bodied and has aromas of dark berries and flavours of spicy-sweet oak. It pairs beautifully with grilled meats and will be enjoyed to the very last drop.
