February 14th is the holiday for lovers, we suggest to you 5 gift ideas from downtown to offer to your better half. And if you are single, these gifts are also great for you!

#1 Gourmet meal kits from Marché Artisans

Le Marché Artisans defined itself as an effervescent place: looking at their products, it’s certain that you will not remain indifferent! For a romantic evening, it offers a selection of tasty gourmet meal kits. Each kit includes two cocktails, a bottle of Ruffino Prosecco sparkling wine and a box of three exclusive from Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth chocolates.

You can order from February 10th to 28th and have it delivered in the greater Montreal area.

#2 A box of chocolates from Divine Chocolatier

The story of this chocolate factory, located on Crescent Street, is also a love story! Indeed, Maître Chocolatier Richard and Chef Jindy are owners of this independent chocolate factory!

They define their store as unpretentious and deliver all over the world! Personally, we love strawberries covered with chocolate!

Discover their selection of products for Valentine’s Day!

#3 A souvenir photo album

So yes, we all agree to the fact that we would like to forget the year 2020! But you may still have had a good time with your better half or your family or with your favorite pet and want to immortalize these moments! Valentine’s Day isn’t ONLY for lovers, it’s for the love we share! So we suggest Gosselin Photo’s Lab to personalize your album and give it to those you love!

In addition, you have the choice between different media!

#4 A concert at home with the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal

From February 2 until February 16, the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal is webcasting the Dvořák’s Masteful Symphony no 7 conducted by Rafael Payare.

Rafael Payare is an internationally renowned conductor who will take on the role of Music Director of the OSM next September. In the meantime, he makes you discover his musical universe and invites you to this concert. A concert also placed under the sign of love because the famous conductor will be accompanied by the renowned cellist Alisa Weilerstein, his wife.

 

#5 One night in a downtown hotel

Playing the tourist in your own city can help you to make time for yourself and take a weekend off! In addition to the benefits for you or for your couple, you are helping the touristic industry, greatly affected since the start of the pandemic.
