Valentine’s Day Gift Guide


It’s right around the corner, and one of my very favourite pseudo-Holidays. This day has a special place in my heart because my Ivy was almost named Valentine. Well, not really, but my oldest daughter told her entire Kindergarten class that we were naming the new baby Valentine (and her teacher believed her!) because she was born two days before Valentine’s day.  (Above: Little Giraffe Love Blanket $78)

Here are my picks …

For your partner

For the kids

Last year I introduced a fabric gift bag for each child on February 1st, and each morning leading up to Valentine’s Day there was a small gift inside.  Some days the gift was a love note, some days it was a sweet treat, and other days some little trinket or small toy.
