Valentine's Day Goodies To Love

I'll be the first to admit I'm not a big Valentine's Day person (don't get me started on greeting cards)--I am pretty sure come Thursday, bf and I will be hanging out at home eating non-pink M&Ms and playing Ni No Kuni--but that doesn't mean I don't love me some hearts or cute Valentine's Day collections. Here are a few faves, whether you're celebrating it with S/O, your best friends, or yourself:

You can buy a box of chocolate anywhere, but where else can you get a box of chocolate tea but from DavidsTea? I'm a big fan of DavidsTea, so I was super excited to find out they had rolled out Valentine's Day sets. The Chocolate Box includes Chocolate Orange, Chocolate Rocket, Love Tea #7, Mint Chocolate Rooibos, Read My Lips, and Red Velvet Cake, in weights varying from 36g-49g, totaling 248g. On weight alone, the set is a better value than buying the teas separately (by about $3, yes I did the math for you already) plus you get them in tea tins packaged in a cute mint green box ($29.50). There is also a smaller version with Mint Chocolate Rooibos, Chocolate Orange, and Red Velvet Cake ($16.50).

What better to go with your chocolate tea than an awesome pixel heart mug? Kikkerland's Morph Heart Mug is low on love when empty/cold and becomes happy and full when hot liquid is added (exactly how I feel about DavidsTea Kiwi's Big Adventure, btw.) Bf and I picked up matching mugs recently and yes, it does work perfectly but the heart is not as bright red as the picture suggests. I think it's due to the heat-sensitive material stuck on the mug that is normally black and turns clear(ish) to show the red heart painted underneath. It's also not microwave or dishwasher-safe but a very cool gift for anyone--including yourself!--that misses 8-bit RPGs.
Vancouverites, we found this mug at Kitchen Goodies in Metrotown.

LUSH's Tender is the Night massage bar is perfumed with alluring jasmine, vanilla, and ylang ylang and is easily crushed to reveal an almond oil, glycerin, cupacu, and agave syrup interior for a super luxurious massage. If bubble baths are more your thing, check out LUSH's Valentines best-seller, The Ex-Factor (no comment on how your s/o will feel about you cackling at a little blue man melting in your bath water, though.)

For anybody DIY-ing their Valentine's Day this year, I absolutely love this simple how-to for making sugar hearts. These would be precious pressed on top of cupcakes--scroll all the way to the bottom to see the gorgeous ombre heart cake.
