Valentine’s is an amazing opportunity for you to share your love with someone special or to pamper yourself!

Recently, I was lucky enough to share a few Valentine’s gift ideas and experiences with Daintre Christensen on Global TV Edmonton.

Here’s an idea to make gift giving even more memorable.

Attach to your gift – a card or note – that shares your favourite memory or story with that person.

This makes the gift giving even more meaningful.

Valentine’s is a special time.

You can take this day as an opportunity to recognize the helpful people in your community, your friends and family, and of course, that special someone in your life.

I am happy to share with you a few of my favourite Valentine’s gift ideas and gift experiences for 2020.

Gift Idea For Yourself 

For beautiful skin…

Riversol skincare

Skincare is the foundation for beautiful skin and a gorgeous makeup look, and a great way to pamper yourself on Valentine’s Day.

  • Made by Former World Health Organization Past president of the Canadian Dermatology association and Vancouver Dermatologist Dr. Jason Rivers to address fine lines, sun damage and dark spots without procedures, surgery, or expensive treatments.
  • He spent 3 years developing the product with a chemist from UBC because the key active ingredient was never used in skincare before.
  • This skincare is perfect for people with sensitive skin.
  • All products include a unique ingredient from the Pacific Red Cedar Tree called Beta-T, which is a powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial molecule and also has the ability to reduce hyper-pigmentation and sun damage. There are hundreds of published scientific articles on this molecule, but they are the only skincare company to use it.

  • You can try the complete routine for free, with enough product to last 15-days at www.riversol.com
