Valentine's day gift guide for her

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching! A day in which we remember the importance of love in our life… And what would life be if we didn’t have love? (sigh)

When talking about Valentine’s Day, it’s important to remember that love is not just about romantic stories (even though we do love those) - there’s so much more to it! Here at Encircled we believe that all forms of love need to be celebrated because there are as many types of love as there are people in this world. 

This Valentine’s Day, we encourage you to celebrate all the love in your life. There are so many ways to express your love and appreciation but if gift giving is one of your love languages, check out our gift guide below for gift inspo from some amazing small businesses!


Love for our friends

They always have a smile to give us when we need it the most, a shoulder to cry on, thoughtful advice, a good conversation, and so much more. Celebrating love for your friends is so important that we even have Galentine’s Day now, which is on February 13th. If you haven’t celebrated Galentine's Day in the past, mark it in your calendar and try to do something special for your besties this year. Our suggestion? Give them a nice and relaxing spa experience with this Seventh & Oak Candle and Bathorium Bath Bomb Bundle - both brands are amazing Canadian small businesses!



Love for our pets

At Encircled, we’re a team of dog-lovers. We have a very cozy and pet-friendly studio, and we love when any of our team members brings their furry friends over. If you’re looking to show your dog a little extra love this Valentine’s Day, this cute Snow Suit from Canada Pooch is perfect for keeping them cozy (and stylish) through the colder months. Throw on your fav cozy outfit, your dog’s new jacket and head out for a walk with some extra treats - sounds like a pretty great way to spend Valentine’s Day if you ask us!



Love for mom

Yes, Mother’s Day exists, but we’re sure we can all agree that the love we have for the mothers in our life should be celebrated more than once a year. We think any momma would enjoy a pair of the cozy-chic House Shoes from Poppy Barley. And for the moms who are obsessed with skincare, the Forever Eye Mask from Dieux Skin is the perfect gift. They’re reusable under eye masks, so she can add a little self-care step to her routine whenever she feel like it, without worrying about the negative environmental impact of disposable eye masks!



Love for yourself

Last, but certainly not least on our list is self-love! The essential kind of love that opens the door to the other ones. Love yourself by resting, listening to that song over and over again that makes you move, saying no when you have to, or buying yourself a cute Valentine's Day piece like the Encircled Comfy Puff Sleeve Dress or Dressy Tunic! They're both made from luxuriously soft, sustainable French Terry fabric, so whether you're dressing up for date night or having a solo self-care day, you'll feel both put-together and cozy. Comfortable, stylish and versatile, you'll be wearing these pieces well past Valentine's Day.



If none of the items on our list really spoke to you, and your struggling to find the perfect gift, you can’t go wrong with an online gift card for Valentine's Day from Encircled! 


Travel Essentials. Encircled creates versatile minimalist clothes with the everyday traveler in mind. Each piece is Made in Canada, out of sustainable, and eco friendly materials.
