For all the Valentine’s Day Lovers + A Cookbook Giveaway

 

Haida Gwaii_Cover_HiResThat dreaded time of year is around the corner. I’m not talking about speedo-swimming-trunks-bikini shopping season. Nope. This is even more difficult: Valentine’s Day. Like eating Brussels Sprouts, there are two camps when it comes to V-day: lovers and haters.  This usually has something to do with whether or not you’re in love or you’re out of love.

My partner and I aren’t a super Valentine’s Day gifty couple, our gift giving tends to focus on experiences more than things. But if we won the Lotto Max tomorrow, besides picking up and buying a cinnamon plantation on Zanzibar, I would love to give or receive any or all of the items on my Valentine’s Day gift list below. I’ve split the Valentine’s goodies into For Real (affordable), Swoon (awesome) and Dream (luxury) categories.

And as a happy Valentine’s Day or Anti-Valentine’s Day to you all dear readers, I’m also offering up a giveaway. Scroll down for details about how you can win a copy of Canadian Poet Susan Musgrave’s A Taste of Haida Gwaii from Whitecap Books.
