Valentines Day Gift Ideas
Posted on February 11th, 2013

Valentine’s Day can be a bit overwhelming for everyone as they try to decide what the best gift is to show a loved one just how special they are.  We took our “Alma” approach (good for the earth, mind, body, and/or soul!) to shake up traditional Valentine’s Gifts.  We developed a Valentine’s Day gift list with alma. (alma means soul in Spanish)

Valentine's Day Gift List

Flowers
Some people think flowers are over-rated especially for the increased prices around Valentine’s Day, but their beauty always speaks to the heart.  But, let's put a little twist on the typical gift this year and try:
 
Eco Stems –
http://ecostems.ca/
Why we love it:  What’s not to love?!  Everything is local, fair-trade or organic and they have attempted to green their business from top to bottom!
 
Dinner
Spending time with your loved ones over a nice meal is a great Valentine’s Day gift!  For something healthy and unique try one of these:
 
Camros Organic Eatery - http://www.camroseatery.com/
Why we love it:  all-organic Persion-esque vegetarian meals near Yonge & Bloor.
 
Live Organic Food Bar - http://www.livefoodbar.com
Why we love it:  Vegan restaurant with cooked and raw options.  95% of the menu is local or organic – plus they have fun, nutritious drinks as well as organic beer and wine!
 
Fresh - http://www.freshrestaurants.ca/
Why we love it:  There are several locations throughout the city which makes it easy to enjoy this approachable vegetarian restaurant with amazing juices!
 
Chocolate
Need we say more? 
Sweets from the Earth - http://www.sweetsfromtheearth.com
Why we love them:  they are an egg & dairy free bakery who uses all natural, 100% plant-based, GMO-free ingredients.
 
Chocosol - http://chocosol.posterous.com/
Why we love it:  This isn’t your traditional truffle but the chocolate is producted from organic cacao using power generated from people peddling bikes.
 
Coco Chocolates – http://cocochocolates.wordpress.com/
Why we love it:  certified organic and fair trade and super fun! They even make chocolate shoes (size 6!).
 
Health/Relaxation
Try something really unique but exquisitely rejuvenating - how about rock bathing?  Check out: 
 
Iyashi Bedrock Spa - http://www.iyashibedrockspa.com/web/
Why we love it:  This place is seriously rejuvenating.  The infra-red heat is amazing for clearing toxins, relaxing, & loosening tight muscles and would make a really unique gift! 
 
Something fun to do together
How about a cooking class?  For a unique spin check out:
Delicious Knowledge by Marni Wasserman - http://www.marniwasserman.com/
Why we love it:  Marni’s classes focus on using whole foods to create nutritious meals and are a ton of fun together!

We hope all of you have wonderful, love-filled Valentine’s Days!
