How do I love thee? Let us count the ways. Check out these five heartfelt gifts to show the woman you love how much she means to you.
For The Hopeless Romantic
She dreams of walking along a deserted coastline only to discover a note in a bottle with words so moving she knows in her heart they were written by her soul mate. She must find him…they were meant to be together. While this would only really happen in a Kevin Costner movie, you can still make her romance fantasies come to life with Love-Message In A Bottle from Indigo. Leave a love note for her to discover and you’ll instantly become her leading man.
She loves you almost as much as she loves her iPhone. Give her a gift that’s stylish and functional. This iPhone 4 cover from Swarovski is made of fuchsia calfskin and features a heart created from Indian Pink crystals. It’s a simple way to add sparkle to her life while keeping her phone safe. Now every time she sends a text, she’ll think of you.
Your chocolate loving partner deserves more than a boring box of chocolates. At My M&Ms you can personalize a tasty treat for the one you love. Choose the colour, add an image or type in a phrase to tell her how much you care. She’ll like the chocolate, she’ll love the creativity.
Forego a bouquet this Valentine’s Day and instead give her a foliage inspired necklace from Blend Creations. Using pressed flowers to create a bold statement, these necklaces say “I love you” with the added bonus of not having to throw out stagnant flower water in a week’s time. We especially love the delicate petals of the boronia flowerand the vivid colours of the hydrangeas.

Opening a gift lasts only a few seconds but the memory of a perfect day will last a lifetime. Imagine taking her on a horse-drawn sleigh ride for two or an afternoon of tasting wine followed by lunch. At Perfect Day Experiences you can whisk her away for on an adventure that she will remember forever. Need some inspiration? Check out their Valentine’s Day gift suggestions.
Sharon DeVellis came to work at the YMC as the Yummy Mummy Club Coordinator after winning Canada's Yummiest Mummy Contest, a contest based on creativity and not on parenting skills (*whew* wipe beads of sweat from brow).
She is now the Senior Writer and maintains the voice of YMC which sounds very similar to the voice in her head. Being crazy is finally paying off.
