Well look at that… Valentine’s Day is a week away!
I wasn’t going to voice my opinions on how I feel about Valentine’s Day, but you’re here so why not? Obviously I love it, just like any other holiday. Please don’t tell me this isn’t a holiday- what else does February have going for it except for everyone trying to take a vacation to escape the cold and realizing their credit card bills are still maxed from Christmas. No, just me? Awkward…. Anyways, just give February Valentines Day. I LOVE any holiday, so as per usual, I decorate my house, I dress for the occasion, I make heart shaped foods and I give Valentine’s cards/gifts like I am in grade 5. I have no shame. (Also, for the record, you can still wear a cute outfit and buy yourself flowers if you are single, so please none of that.)
Just in the knick of time I am providing you with my version of a gift guide for her, or in other words, yourself. These are things that I personally love, have, or strongly WANT (hints all around). Further down you will find the gift guide for him. I like to consider myself a pretty good gift giver, so these are things I have gifted or plan to gift! They are also all found locally around Calgary if you leave things until the last minute!
For Your Girls (& yourself)

These shoes are perfect to wear on Valentine’s Day! The best part about them is you can totally dress them down with a pair of jeans for a fun weekday look.

Charcuterie platters are life and this board is not only large enough to use, but chic with the marble and wood accent.
FUJIFILM Instax Mini 9 Camera from Indigo on sale for $79.95
I have one of these babies and they are SO FUN! I take it to parties, special events and on vacations. It is always nice to have a tangible photo instead of the 8,000 on your iPhoto. No, just me?
The Five Minute Journal – Intelligent Change from Indigo on sale for $18.86
This was recently gifted to me and I love it. You write in it in the morning and set your intention for the day, then you come back to it at night. It helps me stay on track and start my day positively!

Alright, admit you have seen these and admit you want one. I know I do!! I can only request that it somehow matches my home decor though, as these babies last a YEAR!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette from Sephora $55.00
I have this palette and I am obsessed with it. This brand is top notch quality and the colours are so deep and rich.

I love anything personalized and this gorgeous little necklace is your birthstone. The one pictured is mine, January, but some of my favourites are September and May- lucky girls!
Poured Glass Candle – Wild Fig from Indigo on sale for $9.50
I have an addiction to candles and this one smells beautiful. It isn’t too fruity or floral, which I love. Plus it’s on sale!
For Your Man
Google Home from Best Buy $179.99
Guys love tech right? I know you have seen the commercials and you know you want one too- I know I do!
LE 31 Wild bouquet shirt from Simons $69.00
I love wild, fun, colourful shirts on men. Style is fun and you get to show your personality. If you buy your boyfriend this shirt he probably won’t LOVE it, but you’re the one who has to stare at him all day. (HA!)
Cole Haan GrandPro Tennis Stitchlite sneakers from Simons $200
I like these runners because they aren’t super sporty but are still nice enough to wear to dinner. They are a bit different looking and I think they will be perfect for spring!
THE PRODUCTIVITY PLANNER by Intelligent Change from Indigo on sale $20.96
Similar to the one I mentioned earlier from Intelligent Change, this journal is something to keep you motivated and on track. I always enjoy writing down goals and to-do’s because you get to see how far you’ve come!

Who doesn’t love a good smelling groomed man? I also just so happen to love this brand and have used some of their stuff on my sensitive skin and really enjoy it!
Marshall Stanmore Bluetooth Wireless Speaker from Best Buy on sale (until tomorrow) $299.99
Again with the tech-y stuff, but honestly who doesn’t love a portable speaker? My boyfriend always has one around, and I find this one has a cool decorative look to it!
Vans Spicoli sunglasses from Simons $15.00
Every man needs a good pair of sunnies. These ones are stylish and super affordable!
