You have an opportunity to really shine here by not only buying a spa gift certificate but going the extra mile and booking the appointment for her, arranging for someone to look after the kids (if you’re not available) and making it a real treat day that she doesn’t have to plan out.
6) Stress Free Groceries to Your Door + Wine
Sure, arranging meals might not be the most romantic thing in the world, but the thought of not having to think about what’s for dinner and having all of the ingredients delivered right to your door step sure is a nice treat! Top it off with a bottle of New Brunswick (available at Atlantic Superstore in Bathurst, NB) or Nova Scotia (available at ANBL in Bathurst, NB) wine and turn this last minute gift idea into a date night. Here is a discount code to get 40% off your first HelloFresh Box in case you decide to go this route 🙂
From April to December you can find paintings and more by local artists at the Baybreeze Art Gallery. Unique pieces that have a meaning are some of the most thoughtful gifts you can purchase. Or, if you think she would like to create her own art a gift certificate for a paint night with The Tipsy Artist or The Side Door would be make for a nice night out in the future as well.
8) Auto Detailing
Truthfully this might be a bit of a gift for yourself as well, but having a nice clean car (outside and in) is pretty awesome. There are several places that do great auto detailing around, like Thru-Shine Auto Detailing in Bathurst, Mazerolle’s Car Detailing and Super Auto Cleaning.
Let’s be honest, no-one is going to be upset that you bought them jewelry! For locally made jewelry with a unique flare you can purchase at Pure Balance Yoga, Nectar Cuisine Internationale, Chal-Baie Artisans Boutique (from April to December) and of course for a wide variety you can find many great costume jewelry options as well as fine jewelry options at Celebrite Jewellers, Towers Jewellers and Charm Diamond Centres.
Flowers might be a challenge the day of any “flower typical” holiday like Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day, but you would be surprised what is available in store for you to choose from. Although I really like receiving flowers, opting for a plant or a potted orchid is also a great option that will last significantly longer. You can find a variety of options at L’Oasis Florist, Glendenning Flower Designs or at Grocery Stores such as Atlantic Superstore or Sobey’s if you’re in a crunch after hours.
