Edmonton shops with fabulous Valentine’s Day gifts

While gifts may not equal love, it’s still fun to choose a gift for your significant other. Whether you go for the traditional chocolates and jewellery or branch out to books and DIY spa items, the right gift shows how well you know your partner and that you appreciate them. These Edmonton stores offer romantic gifts for men and women.

Princess Lingerie Boutique

520 Riverbend Sq NW, Edmonton, AB T6R 2E3

If you want to get your lovely lady a saucy Valentine’s Day gift, there’s no easier way than lingerie. Princess Lingerie Boutique caters to women of all ages, making it a good place to find bras, chemises, silk pajamas and loungewear. They carry multiple reputable brands, such as Hanky Panky, Diamond Tea, Nanso Loungewear, Christine Silk Lingerie, Fleurt and Knockout. If you aren’t sure about fit, go for a gift card.

Audrey's Books Ltd

10702 Jasper Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T5J 3J5

Show your loved ones you love them for their smarts, by buying them a book or three this Valentine’s Day. Reading is sexy, so we highly encourage giving a nice hardcover book, or an anthology. If you don’t know your significant other’s favourite author, ask the staff for recommendations. This local book boutique also often sells books by local authors.

The Briefing Room

10151 82 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T6E 1Z5

New underwear is a classic Valentine’s Day gift for men. It’s also a chance to make your man throw out his outdated briefs (because you know he’ll never clean out that drawer unless he has proper motivation). The Briefing Room also carries swimwear, loungewear, skin care items, socks and ties. If you really want to splurge, go for the Dovo Inox straight razor with an olive wood handle - $300, but no more stubble!

Poppy Barley

301-10359 104 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5J 1B9

What says “I love you” more than custom footwear? Nothing! Poppy Barley offers custom shoes and boots for men and women, plus a few special items, including wristlets and a gorgeous purse, aptly named The Perfect Handbag. If your sweetie already has their measurements on file with the company, you could order them a surprise pair of boots or shiny dress shoes, or simply pick up a gift card so they can choose their own gift. Poppy Barley boots don’t come cheap, but they are very much appreciated. They also sell pocket squares!

The Plaid Giraffe

10340 82 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T6E 1Z8

This fun Whyte Avenue store is small but full of great gift ideas, including purses, jewellery, socks and travel accessories. A lot of the jewellery brands they carry, such as Jugar N Spice Jewelry and Druzy feature natural stones, and they also stock cute stud earrings by Kosh. They often only get in one of each of their pieces of jewellery, so check their Facebook page regularly for updates on new items.

Carol's Quality Sweets

12519 102 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T5N 0M4

Everyone loves candy – it’s basically a law. Treat your sweetie to some hard-to-find sweets from Carol’s; they sell chocolates imported from the U.K., every flavour of Jelly Belly you can imagine and fun items like sushi candy kits. Plus, they have a whole wall of bulk candy to choose from, and a tempting display case full of handmade chocolates and truffles.

Jacek Chocolate Couture

10140 104 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5J 1A7

Chocolate may be an obvious choice for a Valentine’s Day gift for your sweetie, but it’s a classic for a reason: Chocolate is darn tootin’ delicious. Plus, this isn’t grainy, chalky chocolate of questionable origins – Jacek creates artisanal, hand-crafted chocolates using ethically sourced French chocolate and fresh ingredients. The hardest part will be choosing which delightful chocolate works of art to get – gorgeous truffles, salted caramels, artisanal bars or milk chocolate covered cocoa beans? Plus, you can always choose a bar named after your special someone’s favourite actress or fashion icon!

Red Ribbon Gifts Inc

12505 102 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T5N 0M4

You’ll find perfect Valentine’s Day gifts for men and women here, including jewellery, clothing, accessories, books and stationery, but jewellery is probably the biggest draw. They have such fun, eclectic pieces that you won’t see anywhere else, guaranteeing you won’t buy your girlfriend the same earrings her last boyfriend bought her. They also sell Hanky Panky thongs, which are one-size-fits-all, eliminating any size confusion that can come with buying lingerie for your significant other. Or, build your own DIY spa pack by picking up Prosperity candles, Mullein & Sparrow bath salts and a mini facial mask.

Whether you’re shopping for a wee babe or yourself, is there anything cozier than a onesie? Perfect for camping trips or hanging out at home on the couch (or in the crib),onesies are versatile and comfy – plus, is there anything a baby looks cuter in? These stores sell the most adorable onesies on the market. [Image credit: iStock.com/martinedoucet]
Kombucha tea, a slightly bubbly fermented drink made with a green or black tea base, is a sweet but healthy alternative to pop. Makers claim it can aid in digestive health, plus it just tastes fantastic. Often made from organic, raw ingredients, kombucha teas have exploded in popularity in the past decade. These Edmonton shops carry a variety of brands, including some Canuck favourites.
Linens may seem like a boring thing to purchase, but, if you search the right shops, you can find the most plush, decadent bath towels and pretty kitchen linens you’ll ever see. Having high quality bath towels is essential for a happy life and lovely kitchen linens – well, that just makes your kitchen all the more beautiful and fun.
