Our fave Valentine’s Day gifts for myself 2024:
Witch New York “The Lovers” rose candle
Valentine’s Day isn’t only about romantic love. And nothing says self-love quite like a divine candle that looks as good as it smells. An intoxicating rose scent featuring labdanum, frankincense and patchouli is housed in a striking red vessel is the perfect indulgence you scratch that “something I want, not something I need” itch.
It’s called The Lovers — after the tarot card — and what better gift to you, from you? Because your one true love should be yourself.
The Blumz piercing
Hear us out: Endure a little pain for a whole lot of pleasure with a V-day piercing date. And if you hit up Toronto’s piercing and jewellery mecca The Blumz, the pain part is basically a non-issue — co-founder Anna Blum has such a gentle touch, you’ll barely feel a thing.
Plus, Anna is a pro at curating a chic ear stack at any budget. Seriously: The Blumz carries (and can pierce with) brands such as Anita Ko ($522 to $10,400), Mae ($115 to $285), Junipurr ($126 to $678) and Maria Tash ($80 to $3,650).
Bluer skies may be upon us in much of Canada but winter isn’t over yet, and this sumptuous, unisex knit will see you through to May in cozy style.
What says “I love me” more than a made-to-order knit, handcrafted in the softest baby alpaca, that you’ll literally have for a lifetime? (Not much.)
Tom Ford Oud Minérale
Where the earth meets the water — that’s the promise of Tom Ford’s Oud Minérale, a warm and spicy scent that’s steeped with salty oceanic elements.

Tiffany & Co. Tiffany HardWear Micro Link Ring in Yellow Gold
When a piece of jewellery is so expertly crafted, so obviously eternal, it’s easy to justify a couple months’ worth of rent money on it.
