So it’s almost Valentines Day! Hooray for those little cinnamon heart candies!

I couldn’t remember much about what exactly Valentine’s Day is beyond the admittedly fun exchange of cards when I was in Grade 2… so I went to Wikipedia, of course.

It is traditionally a day on which lovers express their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as “valentines“). The day first became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished.

I couldn’t have said it better myself.

So be it romantic love, or a simple expressions of friendship, Citizen Kid is happy be stocked up on some pretty darn cute Valentine’s Day products… including the aforementioned offerings of greeting cards (known as valentines“).

Check it out!

City Kidz is a downtown Hamilton based organization that seeks to make a positive difference in the lives of needy and at risk children in our city.

The City Kidz Gift of Christmas program was launched in 1995, and was designed to assist our children and families by alleviating some of the personal pressures often experienced and associated with the Christmas season.

This year, Citizen Kid is happy to be a drop off location for toy donations. We have a big barrel in-store and we hope to see it full in time to make a difference for some deserving local children. If you buy a toy donation at Citizen Kid we will take 15% off the price.

Check out this link for all the information you need. There are drop off points throughout the city.

And for more inspiration check out this video from last year!
