We were happy to say ‘Buh bye’ to the longest month of the year, and “Hello” to February (aka The Month of LOVE). For us, February means lots of family connection while riding out the last bits of Winter (vision-boarding, Winter hikes & activities, board games, and this year, a road-trip to Quebec for Family Day weekend!), a low-key Valentine’s Day fam jam at home, and cheering the big boys on in hockey wind-downs.
Love-filled fact: February is also the month Andrew and I got engaged, so Feb’s got a respectful, reminiscent place in our hearts.
We know all the Valentine’s Day gush isn’t for everyone – we polled our readers on IG stories, and it was a 50/50 tie between those who considered themselves “Total Romantics” and those whose Heart’s Day mood is “Valentine’s Day Shmalentine’s Day”! While we know there are so many simple, yet meaningful ways to show love to each other beyond the typical love fest goodies, we’ve been spoiled by some of our favourite partners and want to share the love with you! No matter your usual Valentine’s Day mood or love language, these treats/gifts can be enjoyed any day of the month, any time of the year by your family (some sans kiddos ;).
Purdys ‘Share the Love’ Chocolate Gift Pack
One of our favourite partners with heart, you’ll win a Heart-Shaped Box of Chocolates + a selection of goodies from their Mini Favourites Purdys’ Valentine’s Day collection (my fave – the Hedgehogs!) Because no matter your Heart’s Day mood, chocolate makes everything better! 😉 #ShareTheLove
Revival by Martin & Co. Gift Voucher
We adore this family-run watch company’s mission to get wearers of their timepieces to make time count, and the way they show love to important initiatitives by donating proceeds from each watch to either Sick Kids Toronto or WaterAid Canada. Not only that, their watches are gorgeous, and would make a great gift for Valentine’s Day, Birthdays, Anniversaries, Weddings & more. They’re generously offering our winner a $100 e-voucher to shop Revival by Martin & Co.’s regularly priced timepiece collection for Men & Women, and while you’re there, use code “KERRS20” for 20% off!

Wine-Tasting at Trius Winery
One of our most favourite places for a little romance & indulgence is the Niagara-on-the-Lake region here in Ontario, and a pit stop at award-winning Trius Winery a must-do. We enjoy their Brut Sparkling & Red selections, and want one lucky pairing to sample them for yourselves with an exclusive tasting for two courtesy of Trius Winery!
Crated with Love Date Box
Let’s face it, Date Nights out aren’t easy to make happen, and in this season of parenting, we often prefer to make date nights at home. Crated with Love subscription boxes encourage couples to set aside some quality time & add some fun + laughter to date nights-in. And if the kids crash your party, all good, this was a fun one to do as a family too 🙂
Winner will receive (1) Crated with Love subscription box (*to be selected by Crated with Love*).
