A little sugar on top
A box of chocolates he wants not.
A decorated sugar box, now that's a Valentine's present.
Surprise your sweetie with a bikini wax in the shape of a heart, or decorated with a sparkly rhinestones from Yaletown's new Sugarbox waxing salon.
Owner Jane Brooks has gone ultra-girly with this larger location, replete with gilt mirrors, refurbished shabby-chic antiques, and pink and purple walls ("I couldn't decorate my home this way," she laughs).
Neat and discreet (her "single dip" waxing policy avoids cross-contamination between clients), Brooks gets the job done at lightning speed with minimal pain.
Now all you have to do is plan the "reveal."
