Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! In need of some romantic inspiration? Whether you want to pamper yourself or that special someone – we’ve got you covered.
Here are 10 ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day in Yaletown:
1. Sweets for your sweet
Surprise your special someone with sweets that are just as special. At Karameller each candy is imported from Scandinavia so you will taste flavours that you have never tried before. Or explore Xoxolat where you will find an edible gallery of all things chocolate. Want to step it up a notch? Bring your loved one to a private chocolate tasting class! Mmmmmmm
2. Flowers for your favourite
Nothing says “I Love You” like flowers on Valentine’s Day! Pick a fancy Valentine’s arrangement or a hand-tied bouquet of your own choice.
3. Delicious dining
What can be more romantic than a candlelit Italian dinner? Amore, si?. Combine your romantic dinner with an exquisite glass of wine from the extensive wine list of La Pentola, that highlights the diversity of Italy. It’s love, baby!
4. Furry friends forever
Show your most loyal companion some appreciation. In Yaletown you’ll find plenty of treats for your furry love. We have everything from Valentine fashions to toys, goodies, and even furniture!
5. Spoil yourself at the spa
Never forget, love begins with you. Enjoy some true relaxation with a massage, facial, or even a boost of light therapy.
6. Celebrate with champagne
There is always a reason to pop a bottle when celebrating good times. Sparkle up V-day with a classic – champagne and oysters! In Yaletown you’ll find plenty of spots to enjoy love on the half shell.
7. Be strong with Barre
Valentine’s Day isn’t just for couples – bring your friends and get active together with barre. These ballet-inspired fitness classes will burn enough calories to leave room for dessert!
8. Bakery with the BFF
Hit by a cupcake cupid or needing some dessert therapy? – a sweet treat for you and your BFF is never a bad idea. Prepare for love at first bite!
9. Art for all, love on the wall
Take your date to an art exhibit, and explore the world of fine art together. Since beauty is in the eye of the beholder, you’ll definitely find something to say about the piece you’re looking at.
10. Vino for your Valentine
Rather spend a quiet evening looking deeply into anothers’ Tinder profile? Take the pressure off the big day and cosy up at home. Find tasty types of wine that will make your evening flow.
