35+ Ideas for Celebrating the Month of Love in BC and Alberta!

Posted by Press No Comment yet

While the tongue in cheek ‘Single’s Awareness Day’ was started in opposition to the Hallmark holiday that is Valentine’s Day, it has evolved into a celebration of love in all forms, recognizing not only romantic love, but also the love between friends and family, and also the love you have for yourself. That is what Valentine’s Day is all about, and at GetintheLoop, we are excited to celebrate everyone on February 14th this year.

Every day should be a celebration of love and positive relationships

It’s true, every day should be a celebration of love. That being said, we could be in hot water if we don’t do a little something special for those we love around this special date. We’ve been hearing that this year many people are planning on avoiding the insanity of February the 14th and are instead celebrating their love in the weeks leading up to, and after, the special day, thus opting out of being elbow-to-elbow to other tables of two in a cramped and busy restaurant.

GetintheLoop has you covered!

Sometimes it can be difficult to know what to do to celebrate this special time with your loved ones. But now, we’ve got you covered with over 35 offers highlighted below, including experiences, a night out, gifts, and getaways.
