Nira’s Picks: What She Really Wants This Valentine’s Day

Virgin Radio’s Nira Arora reveals her top 5 Valentine gift ideas

Need some gift ideas for the special woman in your life? Here five of my favourites (you’re welcome in advance)

Send Her A LuxyGram

LuxyGram is a unique service that makes gift buying completely painless and also adds that oh-so-personal touch. LuxyGram offers a selection of beautifully wrapped gift boxes that contain all-natural body care products and delicate, handcrafted jewelry. Topped off with a sweet treat, the result is an easy gift your wife or girlfriend will love. I loved mine!

The Signature Necklace by Crush

Did you know that your signature is as unique to you as your fingerprints? It is physically impossible to perfectly replicate another person’s signature, making it central to your identity. That’s what makes Crush’s custom signature necklace so special.

Crush’s signature necklaces are carefully uploaded into a computer program which ensures that the signature she wears is an exact laser-cut replicate. The necklace is sterling silver and can be plated by request in three sturdy layers of 14-karat gold.

And the best part, it’s affordable, starting at $99. My hubby ordered me one (he just doesn’t know it yet).

The Statement Piece from Pyrrha

Pyrrha is a go-to for me and if you’re looking to impress, this is the gift. All of Pyrrha’s designs are beautiful, intricate and original, and each has a significant meaning. If you want to go a safer route but still want the wow factor, go for the Initial Talismans ($193 with 20/22” chain). My favourite for Valentine’s Day though is the winged heart. This French talisman reads ‘tout pour vous’ which means ‘all for you.’ The winged heart flying above the globe represents a love without limits. Another feature of Pyrrha that makes them even more loveable? They’re local and featured at many local jewelry boutiques.

Give her a dose of Karma

This is one item that your girl will want and need in her closet. Taking athletic wear to a whole ‘nother level, the Karma Athletics Razia Jacket ($118) is a moto-inspired zip-up that’s stylish enough to wear for a night out. The bonus? It’s made in right here in Vancouver. The Razia is available in fig (pictured), charcoal and black.

A Moment of Zen from Saje

Want to get her in the mood for romance? Saje has got you covered. The Tantra Sensuous Kit for Lovers ($36.95) includes “four sensual products formulated to promote feelings of warmth and passion.” The Tantra Tin includes a mist, bath salt soak, massage oil and candle with blends of essential oils that include lavendar, vanilla and rosewood.
