Montreal: Last-Minute Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

By now, you surely have the perfect Valentine’s Day gift, carefully wrapped and waiting for your special lady. You do, don’t you? If not, don’t panic: You can still bounce back and pull together a V-Day treat that she’ll love – or, at least, that she won’t hold over your head for years to come. Here, our last-minute Valentine’s Day gift guide for Montreal.

The It Bag
Of course, we don’t need to tell you that the nude handbag is the must-have item of the season. Okay. Maybe we do. (But we don’t need to tell you that nude is fashion-talk for flesh-toned, right? Oh. Well, it is.) Head to Holt Renfrew and submit yourself to the staff, who will happily guide you through the many brands’ offerings. From $350. 1300 Sherbrooke Street West.

If real pearls are out of the budget, head to Suite 88 for chocolate treasures sure to please any woman. Buy a dozen pearls, which are carefully crafted using the finest white, milk or dark chocolate. From $30. 1225 de Maisonneuve Blvd. W., 514-284-3488; 3957 Saint-Denis St., 514-844-3488.

Go Classical
Show your loved one your sophisticated taste and take her to see Grammy-Award winning classic pianist Emanuel Ax. Last-minute tickets are here or by phone, 514-842-2112. From $52. Théâtre Maisonneuve, 260 de Maisonneuve Blvd. W., 514-285-4200.

The Failsafe
Take her to an exotic paradise without leaving town. A gift certificate for Espace Nomad Spa’s Bali Boreh treatment offers a luxurious taste of the South Pacific without the pesky flight. From $175. 4650 St. Laurent Blvd., 514-842-7279.
