FOR THE LOVE OF BLING
Alex and Ani
Alex and Ani has released an adorable collection for Valentine’s Day. From heart-shaped necklaces to meaningful pieces, there’s a chic, funky and flirty vibe that we totally love.

They also have several Charity by Design pieces, like the Live The Life You’ve Always Imagined Two Tone Bracelet, $28. It’s an inspirational reminder to make each moment count so you two can live the life you always imagined. The bonus? Twenty percent of the purchase price will be donated to Helen Keller International, whose mission is to serve the world’s vulnerable by combatting the causes and consequences of blindness, poor health and malnutrition.

FASHION AND BEAUTY LOVERS
Poppy and Peonies
Has she been hinting at a new fashion accessory? Fashion lovers will appreciate a little swag from Poppy and Peonies. This Soho Satchel, $139, allows the style diva to move from day to night with this all-encompassing purse.
Call It Spring
Is she a shoeaholic? Nothing would be more fitting for your “bae” than these two-toned Call it Spring pumps, $59.99, aptly titled Bae. The hearts at the sole makes us spark joy. You were right, Marie Kondo.
If she’s a makeup lover, RiRi’s Fenty just released 50 new Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Concealers, $32, in long-wearing matte shades for full coverage. They also have a new Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Setting Powder, $40, which gives a wave of sheer glow over makeup for a perfect selfie look. She’ll be one happy girl with this one — in your company, of course.
This one is a gift for the classy lady in your life. This RB3 MVMT watch, $170, is simple yet elegant, and less is always more. She will adore this present. The watches are available at The Bay and other independent jewelry stores.
If you’re looking to gift him something classy, we suggest the Timex Marlin Automatic 40mm Leather Strap Watch, $299. It’s a fresh aesthetic with an iconic domed acrylic crystal, making this a classic contemporary gift. This iconic 1960s piece will make him feel really special. After all, he’s got you as arm candy as well.
Miraj Hammam Spa by Caudalie
Something she’ll appreciate is the gift of relaxation. Give the gift of self care with a treatment at the Moroccan-inspired Miraj Hammam Spa by Caudalie — it’ll transport her to another world without having to leave the city and she will forever be grateful for this. She can indulge in the Vinopure facial or the Swedish massage for some me-time. There are also couple’s packages that you both can enjoy.
If winter is really getting to your sweetie, you could invest in some really great skin care products that she will simply thank you for. Canadian skincare Céla is formulated with natural ingredients in products such as the Black Gold Coffee Scrub, $46, the Crème de la Crème, $37 , and the Daily Gel Cream with Céla Complex, $78, which is a perfect year-round moisturizer.
The Google Home Mini, $79.99, is the perfect assistant to help with date night or for a night in with the girls. From queries like “Hey Google, play thank u, next by Ariana Grande on YouTube” or “Hey Google, can you find me a risotto recipe?,” you can plan with ease.
If she prefers to receive useful and efficient gifts, then how about this tool? Philips Satinelle Prestige Wet & Dry Epilator, $174.99, will minimize on prep time and maximize on sun time by using a more convenient form of hair removal.
The Gucci Guilty for Her, $114, is defined by a signature Fougère accord of Geranium usually found in men’s scents. If she’s usually stealing one of your colognes, this scent is the one for her. It’s laced with amber to radiate warmth and grace at the fragrance’s heart.
You can’t go wrong with this fragrance. Dior’s Miss Dior Absolutely Blooming, $165, is a floral delight, combining notes of Grasse roses and Damascus roses in a base of white musk.
To set the mood, we suggest indulging in the NEST Rose Noir & Oud Classic Candle, $56, which combines smoky wood and soft rose with a hint of patchouli to create a sultry, floral fragrance.
