Valentine’s Day with OOAK

Chocolates from Love & Co. Chocolaterie // ‘Bae’ card from Oak and Owl // Chocolate Loves Strawberry Tea from Tealish // All from the One of a Kind Online Shop

Friends, February is here! While it happens to be the coldest month of the year, it’s actually my favourite month of the year (and you know how much I hate the cold!). It’s my birthday month AND Valentine’s Day and they happen to be back to back. I really love the idea of Valentine’s Day – showing someone you love that you care about them…just because. It’s the perfect cheery reprieve in this kind of dreary month.

I’ve paired up with the One of a Kind Online Shop to choose my favourite Canadian made Valentine’s gifts. Check out all my picks on their website and read what I like about each item below. While a couple of these gifts are specific to gifting to a partner, for the most part these are gifts that are perfect for any Valentine on your list – lover, friend, sister, mother…you name it! I like to keep Valentine’s Day gifts small and sweet – something that will brighten the day of the person when they open it and, if it is something that lasts forever, whenever they look at it. One of a Kind Online Valentine's Gift Guide

  1. These heart shaped earrings by Alyshaalex are kinda perfect for Valentine’s Day! Alyshaalex also has so many unique and beautiful pieces of jewellery – I especially love her amazing rings!
  2. Fellas like accessories too and I love the print on this floral tie by Pomp & Ceremony is bold and sophisticated.
  3. This heartbeat necklace by Muizee is sweet without being overly obvious.
  4. Little rings are my favourite and these Stacking rings by Gwen Park Jewellery Design are lovely and dainty – buy one or buy three and stack them together!

  3. Or these matching pillow cases to give you a morning confidence boost also by Pico Charlie Cole.
