Valentine’s Day … Let’s put it this way, you either love it or you hate it. While some would say that Valentine’s Day is a day for sharing with your significant other, it doesn’t have to be that way! It’s 2019, and if you want to spend Valentine’s Day eating chocolate, having a night full of relaxation, and watching your favourite romantic comedies – we support that! Here at Goodness Me! we have compiled a list of our Valentine’s Day favourites that can be enjoyed solo, or with your partner in crime. So keep reading and see what we’re loving this Valentine’s Day!
Quick, what’s the first thing that comes to mind when we say “Valentines”? Did you say chocolate? Cause that’s what we’re dreaming of—and lots of it! What’s better than spending the night in, bundled up, with your favourite chocolate in hand? The answer is nothing, nothing is better! Our product of choice for Valentine’s Day is the Theo “Salted Black Licorice 70% Dark Chocolate” and “My Cherry Baby 45% Milk Chocolate”. These Valentine’s themed flavours are too cute to ignore, and they taste delicious to boot! The “Salted Black Licorice” has the full-bodied taste of licorice with just the right amount of sea salt added. While the “My Cherry Baby” is the perfect medley of sweet and tart! These bars are also organic, soy free, and gluten-free. So indulge in this guilt-free goodness and start your night in off right.
Need a fabulous Valentine’s Day gift? Or just want to enter relaxation mode? The Wax & Fire Co. candles are our favourite! These candles were developed by an aromatherapist to convey feelings of love, peace, calm, and nostalgia. We can 100% confirm that they that they did an excellent job. These candles are a perfect way to escape all your stress and calm down. Our personal favourites include the scents “Tobacco & Leather” and “Canadian Maple”. The Tobacco & Leather scent is a delicious warm and cozy scent with notes of vanilla, musk, and sandalwood – just as if you were wrapped up in an old leather jacket. While the Canadian Maple scent transports you to Canadian Spring when the snow has started to melt. With notes of butterscotch, caramel, and crème brulee, you’ll want to eat this candle right up! A fun fact to add: Wax & Fire Co. was created in Hamilton, just like Goodness Me! and the candles are still hand crafted in Hamilton. Supporting local businesses fills our hearts right up, which is fitting for this holiday! Regardless of what candle you pick, you won’t be disappointed. So grab your candle, light it up, and start your night of relaxation.
Nothing makes your heart flutter quiet like a warm cup of tea on a cold day. Pukka has created the perfect blend of heart-warming tea, with a blend of organic rose, chamomile, and lavender that fills you up with warmth and calmness from head to toe. Pukka’s love tea is the perfect drink to enjoy with a night filled with Netflix and blankets, whether that’s solo or with your significant other. This tea is a part of Pukka’s relaxation line, and with ingredients like lavender and chamomile it will be effective in doing so! So grab your favourite mug, steep a cup, take a deep breath, and enjoy!
When I think of Valentine’s Day, I think of indulging in some of your favourite treats. How can you not when you’re surrounded by chocolate?! The Nutiva Hazelnut Spread is one of our favourite indulgences. While we don’t recommend eating by the spoonful (although it is tempting) it is a perfect treat with fruit! Grab some strawberries, slice them in half, and put some of the hazelnut spread on them and you’re good to go! This is the perfect snack to accompany your favourite romantic comedy – even though they may be finished by the time the opening credits are done. Pick up a jar, we promise you won’t be disappointed!
Now we know what you’re thinking … Heart shaped lollipops? Really? Yes really! Sometimes you just want to feel nostalgic and transport yourself back to a time when candy hearts, paper Valentines, and chocolate were what valentine’s was all about. And these heart shaped lollipops will do just the trick! In the bag of 30, you get the delicious flavours of watermelon and cherry – they are perfect for sharing (or for keeping in your personal snack drawer) they are also organic, non-GMO, and free of artificial colours and flavours!
In conclusion, these are just some of our Valentine’s Day favourites! From delicious variations of chocolate to heartwarming tea, and relaxing candles – you can’t go wrong! So if you find yourself dreading Valentine’s Day this year, channel that energy towards having a good night solo. Or maybe you’re spending the night with your significant other and you’re tired of the standard dinner and night out, try a night in filled with movies, snacks, and candlelight!
