The Perfect Gift Guide for Galentine's Day February 09 2017
Plush teddy bears at every storefront window, bouquets of flowers scenting the air, red and pink as far as they eye can see – yup, Valentine’s Day is almost upon us.
And while Cupid’s favourite holiday can be an amazing opportunity to show your special someone just how much you care, it can often make those who are riding solo painfully aware of their singledom.
We’ve all seen the archetypal portrayal of a single woman on Valentine’s Day before: mascara-streaked face, buried seven feet deep into a tub of ice cream, crying over pictures of an ex (“I still love you, Brian!” she screams hysterically) with her two ride or die homies, Ben and Jerry.
Ladies, please. It’s time to put an end to this madness. Women are not defined by their relationship – or lack thereof. And more than that, being single on Valentine’s Day does not have to mean a sad, lonely night of wallowing.
In fact, it’s the perfect opportunity to celebrate a different type of love – with Galentine’s Day! A day to honour the women who have laughed with you until soda streamed out of your nose (don’t lie, we’ve all been there), lent a sympathetic ear when you were in crisis mode (and, okay, maybe it’s possible you were being a teeny bit dramatic), and lifted you up to become the total boss diva you are today.
But hey, if you still can’t help but feel a little salty about not having a plus-one, we’ve got you covered! Our Salt Lover Valentine’s Day Gift Set will totally perk you up. Invite your friends over for an at-home spa day, because it’s true what they say: misery loves company.
Here are all the incredible goodies included in the gift set:
// Scrub //
Get your besties together and pamper yourselves with our Lemon and Tea Tree sea salt scrub, perfect for a DIY pedicure. Fresh lemon zest and tea tree essential oils combine to cleanse, soothe, and regenerate the skin. This scrub can be used on your entire body, but its foot healing properties are where it’s at. Treat your feet with this anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and muscle ache relieving blessing in a bottle. Plus, enjoy some blissful bonding time with your favourite gals!
// Lip Scrub //
Can we just take a moment to celebrate you? Yes, yes we can. Toast yourself and your friends with our Champagne Sugar Lip Scrub. Give your lips the star treatment they deserve in just three simple steps: wet your lips, apply the scrub in a circular motion, and lick or wipe off. Your lips are sure to be perfectly exfoliated and moisturized. Then, raise a smile in honour of all the lovely women in your life. Cheers!
// Sea Bath & Scented Candle //
It ain’t easy being fabulous – and for you and your besties, it’s a 24/7 gig. Give the gift of tranquility with our incredible Relax sea bath. The expertly blended mixture of essential oils is designed to release tension and transport the user to a place of serenity. Even better, we've included a luxurious scented candle to create the perfect soothing ambiance. Incorporating this relaxation into a busy lifestyle is sure to make it all the more bearable when nosy family members ask – for the zillionth time – when they'll be hearing wedding bells.
Our Salt Lover Valentine’s Day Gift Set comes packaged in a reusable pink bag with tissue paper. Totally gift ready. Like I said, we’ve got you covered!
And if you're feeling more sweet than salty, our Sugar Lover Valentine's Day Gift Set is right for you. Check it out!

We absolutely love when our customer's love our scrubs as much as we do - it's probably the biggest compliment we could ever recieve. And even more than that we love when you take some kick-ass pictures of our scrubs. One of our biggest fans (looking to you Danette!) took some pretty fabulous pictures last week, I just have to share them with all of you.
Since our products & company are inspired by the beautiful coast of Cape Breton, it's perfect that she took these pictures with inspiration from the ocean. Thanks again Danette for your awesome pictures and how you continue to inspire us to keep doing what we are doing :)
You can send them directly us at email@example.com or post them to Facebook/Instagram/Twitter - just be sure to use this hashtag…
