TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 200 Date

TAG Heuer LVMH Watch Week 2022 Aquaracer in post
Learn More

Launched in late January and already available through TAG Heuer’s e-commerce portal, the Aquaracer Professional 200 Date lands just in time for the perfect Valentine’s Day surprise this year. It’s a compact and rather slender diver that can safely fly under the banner of unisex; something you and your partner can share without much fuss. That said, there’s also a more petite 30mm version if you wanted to go the route of “his and hers” watches for the occasion. No matter how you slice it, it’s one of our favourites of 2022 so far that doesn’t call for an astronomical sticker price or difficulties with waitlists and other nonsense. ($3,450)

Lanson Gold Label Brut Champagne 2008

Valentine’s Day is never truly complete without a proper bottle of bubbly (less the home is alcohol-free, granted). To do things right, we’ll lean away from the usual suspects, and focus in on a bit more of a sleeper. Lanson is one of the oldest champagne houses in existence, first entering the space back in 1760. In present form the brand keeps a keen eye on both tradition and sustainability. The brand’s vintages are a rare treat that aren’t always easy to get ones’ hands on, so best to strike while the iron is hot and the shelves full. ($94)

Marmot Yolla Bolly Double Wide Sleeping Bag

Valentine's Day Gift Guide 2022 - Marmot Yolla Bolly Double Wide Sleeping Bag in post
Learn More

For the more adventurous, so long as international travel remains iffy the idea of romantic camping getaways maintain a certain level of appeal (when the weather gets a bit warmer). This sleeping bag accommodates two people, while also securing your pillow and sleeping mat in place so you don’t roll onto the cold, hard ground in the middle of the night. Now the only thing that can disturb your sleep while camping is that mysterious rustling sound in the woods that wakes you up at 2 a.m. You know it’s most likely a chipmunk, but it could be a bear. At least you have your loved one to hold you close. ($500)

Moncler Legere Crossbody Bag

Valentine's Day Gift Guide 2022 - Moncler Legere Crossbody Bag in post
Learn More

This nylon crossbody bag may be compact but how many boxes of chocolate do you think it could hold? Well, our calculations have proved inconclusive, but we hope it’s a lot. The bag comes with a detachable shoulder strap so it can also be worn as a pouch. Cool. It’s also made using recycled materials that are environmentally friendly. Even cooler. ($980)

Dillon’s Small Batch Rose Gin

Dillons Rose Gin
Learn More

A hint of rose, without turning to a bunch of roses? Enter Dillon’s Gin, providing a peculiar, adventurous, and surprisingly enjoyable gin infused with rose hips and rose petals. A romantic night of cocktails is in the cards with this gin as your jumping off point. ($50)

Fordite / Vintage Westinghouse Micarta Ring

Valentine's Day Gift Guide 2022 - Fordite / Vintage Westinghouse Micarta Ring in post
Learn More

Here’s one that’ll impress all you gearheads and collectors. It’s time to put a ring on it, but not just any ring — how about this beautiful, unique, and ultra-rare one? Made using spectacular Fordite, with an outer later that was milled from a slab of Westinghouse Micarta from the 1940s, we’re not quite sure there’s any better (or frankly, cooler) way to say “I love You.” ($900 USD)

Byredo Bibliotheque Candle

Learn More

Nothing sets the mood quite like the scent of a…French library? Trust us. It’s less dusty, leather-bound copies of The Count of Monte Cristo, and more peach, plum, vanilla, and patchouli. Yum. ($90 USD)

Zen Flower Vase 

Valentine's Day Gift Guide 2022 - Zen Flower Vase in post
Learn More

Give flowers inside this unique amber vase designed by Luca Nichetto and your partner is likely to act like one of those kids who enjoys the box that their gift comes in more than the gift itself. We’d still count that as a win, though. ($140)

Glenlivet Nadurra First Fill Selection

Learn More

Among our favourite single malt scotches. Aged in first fill American white oak barrels, it’s a light, zesty, and fruity scotch for the person who likes rich scotches. Let’s hope that’s your Valentine, and not just you. ($85)

Cartier White Gold Love Bracelet

Learn More

Plenty of Valentine’s Day gifts are corny and rely on novelty. Not this bracelet. While it is a worthy of expression of your love — it does come from Cartier’s long-standing “Love Collection”, after all — its spare, frill-free form is also chic and timeless. ($6,600)

Ezcaray Mia Throw

Learn More

Bundle up together under this blanket made of a mohair and extra-fine wool blend from Spanish brand Ezcaray. It’s sold by Dexter and Byron Peart’s shop Goodee, meaning you can rest easy knowing that it’s good for the planet. ($325)

Tekla Classic Bathrobe

Learn More

Denmark’s it-brand for bedding and bath wear has crafted what may be the perfect unisex bathrobe. We recommend the Carmel colourway, with its sharp blue pinstripe. It’s also 100 per cent organic, if that tickles your fancy. ($205 USD)

F. Miller Necessity Kit

Learn More

Give the gift of smooth, hydrated skin with this kit that includes a face oil, body oil, cleansing oil, toning mist, and, yes, a lip balm (all in a cool reusable washed paper bag) from Toronto’s own F. Miller. This is the Necessity Kit, so you have no choice but to buy it. ($160)

When Objects Work Bohemian Crystal Carafe

Learn More

Ditch the wine bottle and use this crystal carafe designed by UK architect and master of minimalism John Pawson. Nobody has to know just how expensive (or inexpensive) that bottle of wine is when it’s in a carafe that looks this good. ($245)

YSL Y Eau de Toilette

Learn More

Stimulate the senses with this classic scent from YSL. With a top note of bergamot supported by fragrant iris, it leaves a… titillating…trail. ($135)

48 North Sex Pot Intimacy Oil

Learn More

Not only is this intimacy oil made of a sensuous blend of natural oils, it’s also infused with THC to heighten sensation and “stimulate your natural chemistry”. It bears repeating that this is THC, not CBD. Keep your acronyms straight for desired results. ($50)

Sade Baron Blue Lemonade

Valentine's Day Gift Guide 2022 - Sade Baron Blue Lemonade in post
Learn More

Scrub down with this bar of soap that includes Blue Clay. Like all products from Toronto brand Sade Baron, it’s made of all-natural and ethically sourced ingredients. It looks cool too, like a slab of blue and yellow marble — which is how it got its name “Blue Lemonade.” It’s also been featured on the Goop website so if it’s good enough for Gwyneth, it’s good enough for you. ($24)

Hennessy Paradis Impérial Cognac

Learn More

A blend of cognacs that range from 35 to 130 years old, this Hennessy has notes of jasmine and orange blossom. And that, in our opinion, makes for the perfect nightcap. ($3,825)
