Ah, Valentine’s Day…one of my favourite times of year! Of course, personally, I love all holidays (real and of the Hallmark kind) for any excuse to celebrate. This year is especially exciting to me to be able to create a Valentine’s Day gift guide of handpicked items from a selection that I have personally curated for the online shop on my new website TheChicCanuck.com. Since we are currently offering FREE shipping across Canada until February 14th with the code LOVE, here’s a chance to have a fabulous Canadian gift shipped to you (or a loved one) on us. Take a look out my top 5 picks for her and him from The Chic Canuck below!
These 100% botanical, vegan and cruelty free perfumes were just added to The Chic Canuck’s skincare section of the online shop this week! I’m so excited to have such a great range of scents on the site — a fabulous option for those who love to smell great but also care about what’s in their beauty products. Shop them HERE at $50 each.
What could be more fitting on Valentine’s Day than the gift of a rose gold-plated rose stem bangle designed by Toronto-based jeweller, Nelle Han? It’s perfect! Shop them HERE and see the other colour options too.
Despite how hot things can get on Valentine’s Day, it’s still in the middle of winter. Keep her hands warm with the help of a beautiful pair of stylish touch-screen gloves that are designed in Toronto. Shop them HERE and choose from selected styles.
Bubble baths may be a bit cliche on a romantic night, but bath salts certainly are not. Did you know they actually have relaxing properties that also help sore muscles? Treat her to these handcrafted bath salts by Gold Apothecary and shop them HERE.
This pick is extra special to me because it is one of the first collaboration pieces by The Chic Canuck! Let me be the first to present to you the ChicBB necklace by The Chic Canuck and Blackbird Jewelry. Here we’ve taken on of their staple items, the amulet, and jazzed it up with a rhinestone chain. These come in 5 different colours and will be available to shop on the site this weekend in the Blackbird section of the shop!
I don’t know about you, but I love a man that loves to eat. One of my personal favourites is the Burger plate by Said The King but you can also choose from the selection of options HERE, or taking a look at the hand painted (and printed) options from Jacqueline Poirier HERE.
Is your man 416-er through and through? If so, there’s a good chance he’s got some serious facial hair happening right now. While he may be a bit metro, he’s still a man in that he doesn’t want too many products to deal with in a morning. I love the 3PETE by Uncle Peters Man can be used as a face oil, beard oil and aftershave. Also, it smells great! Shop it HERE.
Him or Her, these beautiful made-in-Toronto embroidered leather camera straps are great gift options for any photographer — amateur or pro. Shop our options HERE.
