Valentine's Day guide 2021

We’ve just finished curating our annual array of Valentine’s Day gifts and this year included a quality set of true wireless earbuds as well as products from some of our favourite brands — L’Occitane, Mejuri, Molton Brown and Vancouver Candle Co.

Mejuri Honey Necklace-2

Mejuri Honey Necklace

This adorable little Mejuri necklace is handcrafted using 18k gold vermeil on top of sterling silver. Not to be confused with regular gold plating, vermeil is a much thicker layer of gold that provides long-lasting colour and wear.

The chain has an adjustable length of 16 to 18 inches so you can gift it without worrying that it may not fit your recipient’s neck.

The bee pendant itself measures 11 x 8.5 mm. Mejuri additionally gives back to the community by donating 10% from each Honey piece to Women for Women International, an international non-profit that helps women affected by war and conflict in eight countries to date.

While the estimated retail of a similar quality necklace is CAD $195, Mejuri sells this one for just CAD $85, making it a perfect little splurge for a sweet person in your life.

Vancouver Candle Co.

Vancouver Candle Co.

From Vancouver Candle Co.’s ever-growing collection of handcrafted candles and diffusers, we selected one from their Great White North Collection, West Coast, and one from their Neighbourhood Collection, Rosedale.

Vancouver Candle Co.

Each Vancouver Candle Co. candle and diffuser is handcrafted using traditional methods and includes the finest quality ingredients — premium soy wax, pure cotton wicks, natural essential oils and perfume-grade fine fragrance.

While West Coast contains a heady mix of fir, spruce and oakmoss (smells like a forest walk!), Rosedale is a modern, floral scent that layers luxurious notes of rose, leather, aromatic woods and musk. And for every Rosedale 10 oz. candle sold through February 22, the company will donate $5 towards the CKNW Pink Shirt Day.

Designed and hand-poured in Vancouver, these come ready to gift in a patterned box showcasing both the number in the candle’s batch run and artisan signature.

5 oz. Votive, CAD $22; 10 oz. Signature Boxed Candle, CAD $42

Molton Brown Jasmine and Sun Rose Eau de Toilette

Molton Brown’s beautifully packaged Jasmine and Sun Rose Eau de Toilette contains an elegant mix of Egyptian jasmine and osmanthus, raspberry, bergamot and peach with a layered base of labdanum, musk and patchouli.

The jasmine has been sourced from the banks of the Nile Delta, when the flower is at its most fragrant. If your sweetheart is a fan of floral scents, this one may just become her new favourite spritz.

Molton Brown offers free standard shipping within the US (contiguous 48 states).
50 ml (1.7 fl. oz.), USD $80; 100 ml (3.3 fl oz.), USD $120
