The Sweetest Things

February 4, 2021

Our team’s top Valentine’s Day gift picks. —Vita Daily

Wear your love year round (and round your neck!) with this heart pendant by Michael Hill ($549), featuring 0.25-carat total weight of diamonds set in 10-karat white gold.

Dior does Valentine’s Day right with two special-edition lipsticks in satin-finish shades ($48 each) adorned with a burst of hearts.

There’s nothing better than being in the flicker of candlelight, especially when it smells and looks as good as the Dark Berries scent ($56) from Poetry of the Gods. Made with a custom coconut wax that burns so smoothly, the delightful blend of wild rose and black current transports you to warmer seasons. 

Calgary’s Gogo Sweaters offers cute and cosy knits made by Canuck gals. The Heart Pullover ($495), in bubblegum pink or fiery red, boasts a short body that works well with mid-to-high-rise pants, is great for layering and is handmade in Canada with soft, luxurious Italian-spun wool.

The Aritzia Super Puff has certainly become a winter wardrobe staple, and it’s trademarked. too. This puffer-style jacket is super warm, super chic and available in many lengths—not to mention, a spectrum of shades of pink, from light pink to rose cloud pink to this new dusty coral number in corduroy ($275).

Looking for something different to do or gift this Valentine’s Day? Bite offers the ultimate bespoke lipstick experience via virtual Lip Lab appointments that let you, with expert guidance, create two lipsticks of your dreams ($100).

Dyson‘s special red edition of the iconic Supersonic hair dryer comes with a unique red presentation case ($500). Featuring intelligent heat control to help maintain the natural shine of hair, it’s the perfect gift for anyone looking to achieve a salon style at home.

Here’s a steamy gift idea. L’Oreal Professionnel’s Steampod 3.0 ($350 at Chatters) uses a combo of heat and steam to straighten hair two times faster and with 78 per cent less damage than a traditional flat iron.

OPI‘s Hollywood collection includes a range of Valentine-worthy shades, from a bubblegum pink to a ravishing rose to a luminous fuchsia and, of course, a motion picture-perfect red (from $13 each).

Get pink from head-to-toe with Reebok‘s Cardi Coated Club C Double shoe ($110) in a new sure-to-sell-out-soon colourway called Dynamic Pink.

Get your Goddess Goals on with Saje‘s limited-edition kit ($38), containing a Goddess roll-on, rose mist, Goddess body butter and rose lips balm, and designed to help take care of body and mind with emotionally supportive premium essential oils like rose, jasmine and neroli.

Now available in Canada, Aussie lingerie label Sevigne makes perfect-for-gifting matching sets—like this lacey Esmee pairing ($78), crafted for comfort and natural support in the softest of tulle pink.

For future travel plans, the Kosan Go travel dress (from $160) is the only piece you’ll want to pack. With four hidden pockets and two different skirt lengths, this comfortable and convertible (and designed in Canada) frock will be ready and waiting for your next adventure.

Vancouver-designed Fable dinnerware’s Blush Pink line of one-of-a-kind pieces are the perfect Valentine’s Day treat—think breakfast in bed or a romantic date night at home.

The name says it all: Benefit’s Love Tint ($24 at Sephora) is a fiery-red lip and cheek stain that leaves a passionate flush. The doe-foot applicator glides right on for a gorgeous look in seconds. Apply the smudge-proof, non-drying formula on lips and cheeks for kiss-proof, mask-proof, long-lasting and vibrant colour.

The 28 Colors table lamp by Bocci ($700 at Livingspace) results from an innovative fabrication process that manipulates both the temperature and the direction of air flow into blown glass. The result is a slightly distorted sphere with an interior landscape of satellite shapes (we love it in this opaque pink hue).

By Toronto-based artist Rachel Joanis, this limited-edition piece, entitled Social Women (from $75 at Mrkt Gallery), is a work to be cherished.

Not your run-of-the-mill hair tie, this velvet bow scrunchie in dusty rose ($30) sourced by ai—a Toronto-based, family run brand that carefully curates sustainable-luxury pieces made by artisans in Seoul, South Korea.

Never has a more perfect Valentine’s Day shoe existed. By Jimmy Choo, these pointed Love 100 pumps ($449 at Holt Renfrew) are crafted in contrasting panels of satin that form an asymmetric design. Made in Italy, the colourful style is mounted on a covered stiletto high heel.

We’re sure you’ll agree: rings in platinum with coloured gemstones and diamonds from Tiffany & Co. make the ultimate love gift.

    My ultimate Valentine gift is an evening of time well spent. Start with a charcuterie raclette dinner, a great bottle of wine, chocolate dipped strawberries with whipcream and a fragrant bubble bath. Laughter, time and romance…perfect 🥰

    I’ve spent many Valentine’s Days having spaghetti with my Charlie Valentine ( he’s a handsome ventriloquist dummy). Our eccentric duo think the heart sweater and the pink travel dress would look stunning on me for our pasta dinner. He’ll wear his tuxedo as always. And a bib. X n O
