Valentine’s Day Gift Inspirations

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and even though it hasn’t been the same since February 2020, we remain strong as a community and look forward to sweeter days ahead. To mark this day a special one, we’ve got some thoughtful gift ideas to celebrate an unforgettable day with your Valentine.

You can’t go wrong with the classics – anything that sparkles and smells lovely will be well received. If you are looking for the perfect sparkle, you can find a beautiful selection of timepieces and fine jewellery from Garine Jewellers and Rochells Jewellers – their attentive staff will be sure to help you find the right piece just for your partner. Another gift idea that will make your Valentine smile is a beautiful flower arrangement or a lovely plant from Continental Flowers. At Continental Flowers, you can find an assortment of bouquets for any special occasion! Let’s not forget about the beauty products… you can surprise your Valentine with a lovely perfume, exclusive makeup or the latest skin care products from Shoppers Drug Mart, Winners or Walmart – these classics are sure to please!

Valentine’s Day doesn’t always have to be about the classics. There are other personalized gift ideas that will delight the hearts. If you and your Valentine are book lovers, make it a fun outing and head over to Black Bond Books to find the perfect reads. Continue the evening by enjoying a delicious pastry (and coffee, of course!) from Starbucks or Blenz Coffee.

For the tech lovers, take a walk through Best Buy, located across from Winners and find the latest in electronics. From video games, phones, smart watches and more, there is something for the both of you to enjoy. Mixing things up is fun too! Try something new and head over to Japan Shiatsu Clinic to enjoy a relaxing massage.

Valentine’s Day does not necessarily involve getting an expensive gift. What matters is the quality time you spend together. It’s okay to keep it simple, a nice romantic dinner at your favourite restaurant, or a casual night-in with takeout and a movie can be pleasant too. You can make a reservation or get takeout for a delicious dinner from Boston PizzaRicky’s Restaurant, or Central City Taphouse & Kitchen. Lastly, you can pick up a bottle of wine from Central City Liquor Store as a special touch!

If you are still undecided on what to gift your Valentine, a Central City gift card is a great idea too! Central City gift cards are redeemable at most of the Centre’s 140 stores, restaurants, and services, and are available in denominations from $5 to $500. Visit Guest Services for more information.

We hope you enjoy Valentine’s Day, with lots of love from Central City.
