Salacious cinnamon buns, glamorous breakfast-in-bed teas or a dreamy dinner set in the heart of Squamish. Valentine’s Day done 3 ways has some lovin’ for everyone.

We get it. Valentine’s day can be a soul crushing time of year. The inspiration behind our list is to offer options that fit the many stages of budding (or withering) relationships so that you can be the captain of your love boat.

The PPC Stage

The preliminary, pants-on, coffee-date stage. People can be hard to read, particularly if all you’ve got to go on is a staged, filtered, tinder-rific profile picture. Cupid’s aim improves significantly when you get your target out in the open. Like at a great coffee shop. Like at Grounds For Coffee. The cinnamon buns are so packed full of gooey goodness (and manganese in cinnamon has been linked to an increase in libido) that no matter how the date goes, you can ride that sugar high home, or set your cross-hairs on someone else in the studious crowd at Grounds For Coffee (packed with scholarly transients).

The Hygge Stage

Picture this: your favourite spot at home, strategically arranged candles casting a warm glow, luxurious ear candy (a smooth, easy-listening slow jam), the smell of warm cinnamon buns heating up (because you planned ahead and got the Grounds For Coffee six-pack of cinnamon buns to go). What you are imagining right now is the essence of the Danish word HYGGE (pronouced Hoo-ga), a way of life in Denmark that can be reasonably duplicated in your home on Valentine’s Day. Now all you need to put the Hy in Hygge is a warm cup of tea, this is where the TWG Mon Amour tea set comes in.

The Any-Reason-To-Leave-The-Kids-At-Home Stage

Let’s be honest for a minute here — and for those of you without children, keep reading, it might seal the deal on skipping child-rearing all together — rendering decent humans into society is possibly the least sexy job out there. Self-care often takes a back seat to survival. For many parents, dinner dates, gym memberships, heated lunch break quickies go the way of the dodo. So, this VDay, make it count. Call up grandma or fun Uncle Gary and get the eff out of dodge. A Sea-to-Sky adventure awaits in Squamish at The Salted Vine. Check out their Valentine’s Day offering here.
