Valentine’s Day is almost here! It’s the one time of year where you can be as gushy and lovey-dovey as you want and no one can judge you for it. Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to treat that special someone in your life — your partner, your child, your parents, your grandparents, yourself, or whoever — with a gift that shows them how much they mean to you. Whether you’re looking for a gift that is small and simple or a Kanye-level extravaganza, Capilano Mall can help you find your Valentine’s Day this & that.
The Staples: Sweet Things, Petals, & Stuffies
No idea where to start? There’s nothing wrong with relying on the classics. Purdys Chocolatier is the destination for the chocoholic in your life. Even better: some chocolates are pre-wrapped or in a gorgeous heart-shaped box! Bouquets and flowers are available at Walmart for floral enthusiasts, and stuffed toys from Claire’s and Showcase add a little cuteness to any Valentine’s Day gift. Who doesn’t love chocolate, flowers, and stuffed animals?
The Perfect Card
There’s an art to picking the perfect card for someone. Do you make it yourself? Do you go the funny or sentimental route? Do you write a love letter or keep it short and sweet? That all depends on the person you are giving the card to, but when you nail it, it’s the best Valentine’s Day gift you can ever give! Look no further than Dollar Tree and Walmart for tons of card options and/or DIY materials to make the perfect one. Bonus points for visible effort, inside jokes, meaningful photos, and subtle sappiness.
Breakfast in Bed
I’m not sure if two better words exist (breakfast! bed!), let alone together. Imagine this: it’s Valentine’s Day morning. You bring your loved one a delicious breakfast in bed — including fresh fruit from Kin’s Farm Market and treats from COBS Bread and Tim Hortons — which is served with bowls, cups, and a serving tray from Ideal Furnishings. Whoever said “food is the way to someone’s heart” was right!
