Think Outside The (Chocolate) Box This Valentine’s


February 14th is Valentine’s Day. In addition to Canada, Valentine’s Day is celebrated in the United States, Australia, Mexico (día de San Valentín y la amistad), France (Saint Valentin), and the United Kingdom. In Great Britain, celebrating Valentine’s Day was thought to begin around the 17th century. In the middle of the 18th century, friends and lovers of all social classes would give each other personal tokens of affection, including handwritten notes. Printed cards were first produced in the early 1900s.


Valentine’s Day is truly a day set apart to remind your significant other of how much you care. The most traditional of gifts (in addition to printed cards) are flowers, lingerie and boxes of chocolates. Perhaps this is the year that you will break away from traditions.


Consider something different this year. For your special someone, you could pre-purchase a Spa Day for that they can enjoy solo, or with friends.

Or how about making arrangements to celebrate together for a night or weekend away? You can add a couple’s massage and a special dinner and make this one of the best Valentine’s day gifts ever.


The Benmiller Inn and Spa, in beautiful Goderich, Ontario, has exactly what you are looking for, to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

Consider the Ultimate Valentine’s Day celebration with a 1 or 2-night Couple’s Valentine’s Getaway Retreat. With champagne in your room, a special Valentine’s five-course dinner, entertainment in the lounge and full hot breakfast, you and your Valentine can relax and reconnect in the charming atmosphere of a romantic getaway.

This February, create special Valentine’s memories at the Benmiller Inn & Spa.
