We don’t know about you but we always find Valentine’s sneaks up on us every year. Despite the hints we get from the media and our significant others, we never seem to have a chance to pick up gifts ahead of time. So here we are again, less than a week out and you haven’t picked up a Valentine’s gift (or gifts if you are generous) yet. Not to worry, there is still plenty of time to make it happen and make it one they will never forget. At AmongMen we are here to help with our 2023 Valentine’s Day Gift Guide. It includes gifts for everyone on your love list – with gift ideas from lingerie to food to weekend getaways to sex toys and much much more.
Valentine’s Gifts That Sparkle and Shine
They say that everything that glitters is not gold. And that may be true, but what is important this Valentine’s Day is making your partners sparkle and shine. This may be the reason jewelry is a popular V-Day gift and we are okay with that. But if you want a home run with your gift choice this year, avoid the stereotypical gold hearts pendants on chains and opt for something more modern. A personalized diamond pendant with her initial and a few carats from Canadian based Mejuri will win you points this V-Day. Or perhaps pick up something from the newest Tiffany’s Lock collection. The collection features everything from rings, to bracelets and earrings. This a fresh way to ‘lock’ in that love this Valentine’s day. If she is not a traditional jewelry gal, why not opt for a statement watch The Rado True Square Open Heart evokes the most significant moments of your life together – and the treasured memories locked away in your heart. With gold elements and sparkling diamonds, the True Square Open Heart is a real eye-catcher, on her wrist. Worn together, these two are an evocative reminder of the moments that make a love story so memorable. Not sure what she would like? Why not gift her the American Express Rose Gold Card? The rose gold coloured metal card is the gift that keeps on giving and is a great alternative to the traditional flowers and chocolate present.
Valentine’s Gifts of Experience
We always feel the best Valentine’s gifts are experiential ones. There is something about gifting a staycation or vacation that will give the gift of memories for years to come. If you don’t want to travel too far (psst this can keep the budget lower) why not book a great staycation in your own city. She will appreciate a weekend away in the lap of luxury that only a hotel can provide. Our favourites? If you are in Ottawa, we say opt for the old school glam of the Fairmount Chateau Laurier. Not only is it a classic beauty but it also has an amazing indoor pool and state of the art spa. Montrealers love to escape to the Old Port, it feels like a little European vacation for the weekend. The fashionable crowd always stay at the chic boutique Hotel William Gray. And in Toronto we love the Bisha Hotel and its unique Valentine’s Day special that includes a stay in one of their Marilyn suites. The 900-sq-ft rooms come with their very own fully furnished private patio which is now home to the heated, covered Bisha domes. The first of its kind for the hotel, couples who book one of the Marilyn Suites will get to relax under the stars in their own romantic dome (complete with champagne and room service). This just might be the perfect Valentine’s gift.
Non Typical Gifts
Now if Valentine’s Day isn’t really your thing, or you’re single this year. We think it’s still a great time to celebrate all the loves in your life: friends, family, pets… It’s even a great time to re-discover a little self love. If you have a love in your life who loves to bake or cook, may we suggest that the perfect Valentine’s Gift is the KitchenAid Artisan Series Stand Mixer. It is the go-to mixer for all the professional bakers, so it is sure to be a hit with the home-baker love of your life. Want to up the V-Day quotient? Opt for it in its signature empire red or the latest limited edition colour – hibiscus. More interested in a little self love? Our love language is the perfect cup of coffee in the morning. And we know the perfect cup of coffee is made easier thanks to Philips 3200 Series Espresso machine with LatteGo. It will make you the perfect latte, cappuccino or Americano every morning without fail (or complaints). Now that is what we call love.
