Retail Therapy for World Single’s Awareness Day


On Valentine’s Day, while half the population is busy celebrating love, wearing pink, and purchasing anything with a heart stamped on it, you’re left wondering just how you’re going to get through the day without vomiting. We’ve got a solution for you—good old fashioned retail therapy! 2016 is the year of #treatyoself, so get a little selfish this V-Day and show yourself some love, because whether you’re single or attached, that’s really what this day is all about.


Check out our suggestions, and start thinking about the perfect gift for you!


For You


A brand new Provincial Toque.

This winter may be milder than most, but it’s definitely still toque weather—no doobt aboot it! Our new ‘Provincial Toque’ is super soft and features a super weighty knit. It is possible to be both warm and fashionable.


That pair of dutil. denim you’ve been eyeing.

Spoil yourself with a gift that will last a lifetime, like a quality pair of raw selvedge denim.


A new stack of beads.

2 beads. 3 beads. 4 beads. More beads. Mix and match to create the perfect stack of handmade artisan-beaded bracelets.


Local craft beer or a bottle of VQA wine.

Whether you’re drowning your sorrows, or celebrating your independence, make sure to support local.


Cozy Canadian-made threads.

A new bamboo cotton t-shirt is pretty key for a night out on the town with your other single friends. Staying in? If you’re going to stick with the literal meaning of “netflix & chill,” a pair of our ultra-comfy Classic Peppered Joggers are perfect for settling in for a long night of binge watching Making a Murderer.


All natural 100% soy candle.

Make your place a little more “home-y”. Happy home, happy heart—who needs a significant other? (You can decorate however you want!)


Takeout from your favourite local eatery.

You don’t have to deal with the annoying “I don’t know, just pick something...no, not that” situation, so just go for it and order what you really want to eat. #nom


Hair or beard oil.

You’ve filled up on beer and takeout, the place is smelling great, you’re lounging, now it’s time to pamper yourself. Massage some beard or hair oil into your strands and pretend you were just treated to some fancy-schmancy (expensive) spa treatment.


A little ‘Super Espresso’ pick-me-up.

Scrolling through your Instagram feed overflowing with pictures of chocolates and flowers can get exhausting. Be prepared. Grab a bag of our locally-roasted ‘Super Espresso’ for extra strength to to get through the day. It might even give you the power to double tap a few of those lovey-dovey posts.


Ultra luxurious Monte & Coe duffle bag.

The definition of #treatyoself. Why not pack one of these up and plan yourself a little getaway for V-Day weekend. Escape the madness in style.


Don’t let Valentine’s Day get you down in the dumps this year; instead, celebrate the love you have for yourself!
