This Valentine’s Day, we're planning to make it personal with handcrafted keepsakes from Etsy. Here's how:
Roses are SO last year. Spoil your GF or BFF with this botanical perfume oil from Truvelle (Vancouver). Looking to put a ring on it? The Only One ring from foe and dear (Vancouver) will sweep her off her feet.
Opposites attract. This rustic Tobacco & Vanilla scented candle from Brand & Iron (Vancouver) blends two contrasting scents to create a one-of-a-kind aroma. A cheeky handmade card by Banquet (Vancouver) is sure to convert even the biggest of Valentine’s Day skeptics.
Support your fellow babes on this holiday and enjoy a girls night in with some matching scrunchies from Wild Roots & Co. (Calgary) and Radical Women tees from Banquet (Vancouver) that celebrate the strong women who inspire us.
Do you march to the beat of your own drum on Valentine’s Day? A watercolour zodiac print from Paige Kato Prints (Vancouver) will get the stars aligned for the big day. A Nope Not Today tee from west coast wild child (Maple Ridge) will have you ringing in the day on your own terms.
Don’t forget about the babies and fur-babies! A crochet heart-shaped crib blanket from Yalis and Yabos Crochet (Calgary) is a sweet keepsake the wee ones in your life will cherish for years to come. An Anchors of Love collar from Pooch and Tabby (Toronto) will get your pooch ready to reenact his own romantic “Lady and the Tramp” spaghetti scene.
Wanting to bring some love into your home? A Red Heart Throw Pillow by Aldari Home (Victoria) is festive and can stay out year-round, while the porcelain heart bowls by looks like white (Montreal) and the hot lips linen napkins by Banquet (Vancouver) are the perfect table settings for a love-filled feast.
