Valentine’s Day gift guide

Do you like Valentine’s Day as much as I do? Here are a few great findings to buy, craft, or watch for a perfect Valentine’s Day!

Candy is dandy…

Chocolates are a classic for Valentine’s Day. Chocolate hearts, chocolate fondue and high-end chocolates… Here, you can see littles boxes by Geneviève Grandbois who delivers in Montreal, Quebec, Ottawa and Toronto.

There's nothing better than a good friend, except a good friend with chocolate.

Not for some apparently... Believe it or not, some women don’t like chocolate at all so here is a healthy alternative to share with your Valentine. You will need a heart-shaped cookie cutter, toothpicks, sliced watermelons and oranges.

Crazy Stupid Love

Here is a movie to watch together. Crazy Stupid Love is a movie for couples that you will both appreciate. In short: A middle-aged husband's life changes dramatically when his wife asks him for a divorce. He seeks to rediscover his manhood with the help of a newfound friend Jacob, learning to pick up girls at bars. The movie ends well; after all, it’s Valentine’s Day!

Midnight in Paris

Here is a second film to make the evening last. Woody Allen offers you a delightful comedy nominated for 4 Oscars. It is the promise of a wonderful Valentine’s Evening. It is a romantic comedy about a family traveling to the French capital for business. The party includes a young engaged couple forced to confront the illusion that a life different from their own is better. With its cast of handsome actors and beautiful actresses, this movie will seduce you! 

Watching a movie is good…

… with popcorn, it's better! To celebrate Valentine’s Day, add a bag of pink and red M&M to your popcorn and wrap it in a plastic bag tied with a pink ribbon. His heart will go pop!

Love her madly

Some men celebrate Valentine’s Day like there's no tomorrow. 50th floor picnic, luxury hotels, countryside inns… Some even propose on Valentine’s Day. There is a shortage of romantic men in this world. It would be a pity to refrain yours!

Birks is a great place to search for the perfect shine!
