Would you believe me if I said I didn’t really care for Valentine’s Day? I mean, being a wedding planner and all… It’s true though. I could take it or leave it. The thing about Valentine’s Day is that it’s such a commercialized holiday. People wanting and getting more. Rememeber the days of Valentines parties in school. Now those were fun. Getting to tell your friends how thankful you are for their friendship and reading little cards back from them while you ate all the treats. That’s kind of what it’s all about.
Gimme a bottle of red wine…
All I ever want for Valentine’s day is a bottle of red wine, maybe some good quality chocolate and my husband. I really don’t need anything more than that, and in fact would be happy just sharing a date night at home together (which would probably still include red wine!).
I’ve been more and more drawn to sustainable and ethical purchases. So for those who’s love language is giving or receiving gifts I wanted to put together a list of of gift items I think any woman would love. Even better is that all of the items on my list are from my favourite local store right here in Victoria! SALT Shop houses mostly Canadian-made, sustainable products. Even if you haven’t made the concious effort to buy sustainable, you’ll still love the brands here!

Nothing says I love you more than, I want your feet to be warm.
