Flash Post: Hug It Out
What It Is: I’ll admit it, I don’t quite know what came over the CGG this year. I don’t know that I’ve ever been so smothered with lovey dovey ideas. And here we are on Valentine’s Day, and I thought I’d throw one last, not-so-saccharine option your way, in the form of the Hug A Mug. If, like me, you wish you could wrap your paws around your morning brew but don’t for fear of getting burnt, shout a hallelujah! Just tuck your hands into the inlays and, with the power of the mug’s double walls, rejoice as your hands get a bit of ambient heat. A winsome choice for its semi-sweet sentiment, particularly when paired with her (or his!) favourite coffee beans or tea.
Who It’s For: Your hubby, to encourage him to slow down in the mornings and get wrapped up in his favourite drink (and you). Your parents, as a thank you for raising you to be such a lovely person. Your still-aching-over-a-breakup coworker, as a particularly apt hint if they happen to be someone you fancy as well.
What It Costs: $14
Where It’s At: I imagine it’s available across the nation, but I found it at Vancouver-based shop Front & Company, fount of endless gifting ideas.
Finally if you’re still looking for a Love Is Art bonus entry, it’s simple: just tell me what your big plans are for Cupid’s favourite day!
