Some last-minute Valentine’s Day gifts to keep you in his or her good books and out of the doghouse…
So you’ve left it to the last minute… we hear you (we did too). Now you’re stuck in a mad scramble to find the perfect last-minute Valentine’s Day gift for your sweetie that doesn’t totally suck or lack in originality. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with our list of locally-sourced items guaranteed to land you in the good books.
Sweet Bake Shop has a handful of options that will be your saving grace this Valentine’s Day. Start with their PetitePuf jars of cotton candy, complete with personalized candygrams. They’ll also have plenty of delectable treats ready to grab-and-go on February 14… we’re talking decorated sugar cookies, cupcakes, Valentine’s Day macarons, and more.
Our love of all-things Atkinson’s grows – especially given the options they’ve got for last-minute Valentine’s Day gifting at their Granville boutique. Impress her with an Aquiesse Candle, some Agraria Bath Salts, or add a touch of luxury to the mix with Baccarat Jewellery.
There’s no way you can go wrong if you pop by Kiss & Makeup‘s swanky little North Shore shop to score a fine find. Aside from way too many lines we covet, they’ve got the sweet-smelling market cornered thanks to Rouge Bunny Rouge Fragrances and Tata Harper Love Potion (perfect!).
Barefoot Contessa is another great spot to head to to score a last-minute Valentine’s Day gift that doesn’t totally reek of… well, “last minute.” They’ve got an amazing selection of antique wine accessories, romantic wrapped scented soaps, conversation-starting glossy travel books, and more.
Kiss & Makeup also has a selection of products devoted to him in their aptly-named “Man Den.” Breathe easy Valentine’s Day when you present him with any one of Blind Barber’s luxurious grooming products or a cool-looking Gents hat he’ll want to rock all the time.
He’ll think of you down to the last drop every day if you give him one of Meadow Gifts and Apparel’s funky coffee mugs featuring quirky sayings. We love the “Have a Coffee And Slow Down” design almost as much as the “What The Cuss?” one.
In a bind as to what to buy the practical man in your life as a last-minute Valentine’s Day gift he’ll appreciate (and use)? Pick up a few pairs of MyPakage briefs. Locally designed and owned, you’ll find them at a more than a dozen men’s boutiques around town. We’re thinking you should definitely go for the hot red ones – perfect for Valentine’s Day, no?
Oh, and don’t forget to say it with L.O.V.E. Pop by the new Papyrus standalone store and pick out the perfect Valentine’s Day card.
