It’s February now! Which means that Valentine’s day is just around the corner. For some, February is “Love Month” (see Stephanie Fusco’s recent post) and should be filled with Valentine’s activities. If you’re of this mind set I encourage you to check out her blog for great Valentine’s ideas all month long!
If you’re more like me and don’t see the point of Valentine’s then this will be the only post dedicated to the holiday – promise 😉
Don’t get me wrong…I see the point and there’s never anything wrong in people showing their love for one another but I don’t believe in making others feel bad for it either. And I’m really not one for PDAs so public romantic gestures make me cringe – haha!
That being said, I still find Valentine’s Day themed products really cute! I would just buy them for myself or for a friend.
Here are a few items that caught my eye this year.
I was sent an email about The 7 Virtues Fragrance Company
and at first I hadn’t heard of them but then as I read up I remembered that I saw this pitch on the Dragon’s Den. I haven’t tried any of the fragrances out yet but I love the story behind the company. The Made In Canada fragrances source their essential oils from places like Afghanistan, Haiti and the Middle East to help rebuild communities and encourage peace not war. If you’re thinking about picking up a gift for someone or a new fragrance for yourself out check out this company! I certainly will when I get the chance.
always has the cutest themed products. This “Lots Of Love” gift set contains a bunch of yummy smelling products. Included in this fully wrapped up gift set (clockwise from top, left):
- Close To You Massage Bar
- Rose Jam Bubbleroon
- Prince Charming Shower Gel
- Neon Love Soap
- Sex Bomb Bath Bomb
- Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner
- Chou Chou I Love You Toothy Tabs (not pictured)
Products from the Vitabath In Bloom collection
are a great alternative to give instead of flowers (and lasts longer too!). I think I would pick the the Asian Orchid & Coconut bundle as orchids are one of my favourite flowers (tulips are the other!) and I love Coconut!
I love David’s Tea
and when I received their February Newsletter of course I was drawn to the pretty in pink tea mug! It’s weirdly not online so if you’re looking for this perhaps try your luck in store. The Valentine’s Day teas sound really yummy too!
You’ve heard of DenTek
right? Known for their oral health care products you wouldn’t think about them during Valentine’s Day – except of course having fresh breath when kissing your significant other! Did you know that Vancouver is #1 in Canada for those flossing daily and Toronto is sadly at only #8 making us one of the worst cities for flossing? Eeeks!
To bring some awareness to this issue and to help us freshen our breaths through daily flossing, DenTek approached me to see if they thought my readers would be interested in a Valentine’s Day Giveaway and of course I said yes (based on a previous post you guys all seem to love giveaways).
Here’s what you can win:
- Valentine’s Day Pouch
- Heart Shaped Chocolate
- Breath Strips
- Compact Mirror
- DenTek Floss picks
This will be a short and sweet one so hurry and fill out the rafflecopter form below and of course have a great Valentine’s season if you celebrate.
