We Love That With Kay! – Gifts for your Valentine

Ah, it’s that time of year again. That time of year when a prix fixe is the only option you have at a restaurant, when it’s literally 50 Shades of Red at your local drugstore, and your SO/person you’ve been seeing for the last while starts giving you the side-eye about this upcoming holiday

To take the pressure off of this celebrated day that seems to be more consumer-oriented than love-oriented at times, Team Daily has come up with a little Valentine’s Day gift guide for him and her.

The last time you had to give gifts was only a little over a month ago, so why should you drown yourselves in that kind of pressure all over again? As always, Team Daily has got your back!

From us to you—Happy Valentine’s Day! Or for all the single friends, Happy Single’s Awareness Day!

Gifts for the Lady

Agenda from Anthropologie
We’re sure that everyone can agree that everything from Anthropologieis absolutely precious. Just like Kate Spade, they come out with amazing stationary all the time. We’re especially huge fans of their planners. They’re just…so pretty.

Silk Bed Sheets OR Pillow Case
Diving into a bed of velvety softness? Yum. We’d also like to add that silk bed sheets are better for your skin (more hygienic) and hair (less flyaways). They’re pricey but technically they’re a gift for the two of you.

Beauty Box Subscription
Give her the gift of new beauty products delivered at her door every single month. This might sound excessive to some but for anyone who enjoys trying outnew products now and then, monthly beauty boxes are a win.

Gifts for the Dude

N.W.A. Straight Outta Compton Vinyl
For anyone who was born in the late 80’s and early 90’s, gangsta rap is pure nostalgia. Giving the fact that the movie Straight Outta Compton was muyexcellente, if your man has a turntable, grab him N.W.A.’s most epic album in the form of an LP record.

Pick one from here  – Amazon

Jedi Bathrobe
Pop culture references are always a must; hence the onslaught of Star Wars paraphernalia is hitting stores everywhere. This Jedi bathrobe is relevant, and altogether just really cool.

Find one here – Amazon

Cufflinks
When we think cufflinks, we think mmm fancy and reserved for a special occasion (if you’re not CEO, does anybody rock French cuffs all-year-round?). So why not for Valentine’s Day? Keep his wrist game proper.
If you’re feeling especially sentimental on this oozy-gooey holiday, get him a pair of personalized cufflinks—maybe with his name or his initials? Et voila!

Get some from here  –  Things Remembered

Black+Blum Eau Good Water Bottle
A hit in Japan, and now it’s making its rounds here. This water bottle contains binchotan charcoal that purifies your water through reducing chlorine, mineralizing water, and balancing pH.

Paul Smith Socks
‘Cause they’re better than Rob Kardashian socks.

Fabulous February

Believe it or not, we are a month into 2016 already! Yeah, January bid us goodbye just a few days back. With the first day of the month being a Monday, we agree, it gets a little difficult to keep up with time.

But hey, now that Fabulous February is here, we have all the more time to enjoy the New Year. All the more time because 2016 happens to be a leap year. It being a leap year, February is going to be 29 days! 1 extra day! Imagine the things you can achieve in the extra 24 hours that we are getting this year.

Let’s begin with the basics. How are you doing with the changes you decided to make to your lifestyle this year? Almost there? Trying to incorporate them into your daily routine? Just don’t say that you haven’t started yet. In case you haven’t, let’s just say that January was the practice month. February is the time to seize the opportunities and grab them by the horns!

So what if the first day of the month was a Monday? The first weekend of the month is going to be a long one. 3 days of fun, family, friends.

Make sure to catch the Super Bowl Game on Sunday, February 7th. If you are not really into the Super Bowl games, catch up on all the crazy parties, food deals and celebrations wherever possible. Super Bowl 50 does not happen every day!

Monday, February 8th, is a double bonanza day. Chinese New Year and Family Day, too. It is definitely the day to spend with your family. Again, food, games, gossip and loved ones make it a memorable weekend. Oh, getting the little red envelopes from family members is going to be just one of the best things.

If you are the one who enjoys some thrill, weekend getaway with family or friends is even better. What say?

After the long weekend, Valentine’s Day falls on the next Sunday. With hearts and cupids all around, it is impossible not to celebrate it even if you are single. Singles night out, movie marathon, games night or any activity to keep you busy and keep the boredom at bay sounds perfect.

Talking about keeping the boredom at bay, hot chocolate is something that can cheer you and warm you up anytime. When in a city like Raincouver, indulging in hot chocolate is heaven! And, no better time than now to please your hot chocolate cravings with the Hot Chocolate Festival being in full swing. Going on until the 14th of February, you still have handful of days left to taste some exotic flavours being served by all the participants.

From Thierry to Soirette to Chocolate Arts, make sure to taste their special flavors to become a self-proclaimed Hot Chocolate Specialist.
(Specialist and not snob, okay!)

So, plans are in place till the 14th but what about after that? We definitely know how to help you to keep busy but let’s talk about that in the next post.

Till then, Smile and Shine! 😀

With a gloomy welcome to February, all that we are seeing around is rain, clouds and yes, hearts!

Hearts? Yes, THE Valentine’s Day that everyone seems to be celebrating is finally here!

Have you ever thought about how Valentine’s should not only be restricted to couples? What about the other people you love? What about yourself?

Yeaaaa! Yourself! Don’t we all love ourselves?

To aall the Singles out there, Happy Single Awareness Day! C’mon, it’s not a bad thing… whether you chose the single life or the single life chose you, it has it perks either way. Haven’t you ever thought of being like, “I’ve been single for a while and I have to say, it’s going well. Like….it’s working out. I think I’m the one.” But you know, sometimes it is kind of heart melting to receive something for being just an awesome person. Something is just too special when it’s delivered. So why not get something delivered and we can do this all day! Take a break from that “Single life (sigh)”, and be “Yaaaaaaz, the single life!!” Whether it is a meal and coffee for you to enjoy, or a tub of ice-cream for you to cry over being single (Not!) or a book you want to curl up and read, we will deliver anything for you (Well, almost anything!)

Forget about others, we are just a click away from you!
