Give local this Valentine's Day with gifts you'll both love.
When it comes to Valentine’s Day, there’s no trio of gifts more timeless than a crisp bouquet of flowers, decadent chocolates, and a stunning piece of jewellery. But while you’re showering your sweetie with affection this Valentine’s, why not show some love for the local, too? These Vancouver gems are embracing—and reinventing—the classics with locally sourced, handcrafted offerings that are bound to bring the love this February 14.Landeau flowersNo gesture is more romantic than a bouquet of beautiful roses and with European-inspired online rose delivery service, Landeau, now none will be as simple. Elegant in every detail, Landeau promises a luxury product—fresh roses, hand-tied and wrapped in crisp white tissue paper in an elegant round box—and premium service that travels as far as Vancouver, North Vancouver, West Vancouver, and Burnaby. Pick-up options on the big day are also available at Douglas Reynolds Gallery as well as on the days leading up to Valentine’s from Landeau’s pop-up shop at Holt Renfrew.BETA5 chocolatesThe award-winning chocolatiers at BETA5 Chocolates are no strangers to sweet treats and the beloved shop’s 2015 Valentine’s Day Collection proves just that. Whether you opt for the Valentine’s Day Chocolates ($30)—with imaginative flavours such as absinthe, Sriracha and sesame, and hibiscus and pistachio, each presented in gorgeous fashion—or the equally whimsical Cupid’s Arrow Polygon Bar ($12) or Mango Passionfruit Caramels ($12), these timely delights are sure to satisfy every sweet tooth.Foe and Deer jewelleryLocated in the heart of Vancouver’s historic Gastown, Cavalier’s eclectic collection of handcrafted jewellery makes it a popular spot for one-of-a-kind pieces. We’re especially fond of this rose quartz claw necklace ($110) from Vancouver designer Katherine Huie’s charming Foe and Dear line—though with an assortment of both house-made pieces and exclusive collections by the city’s top artisan designers, we’re confident Cavalier will suit lovers of any taste.
