5 Essential Local Valentine's Day Gifts

Valentine’s Day isn’t just for lovers. Celebrate ALL the women in your life (and treat yourself), with one or more of these fabulous gifts. And the best part, they’re all from local businesses owned by women. What better way to spread the love than to support hardworking female entrepreneurs.

1. “So This Is Love” Candle


Candles are the perfect gift for all occasions. You can pretty much find one to fit any theme. And Moderncity + Main has a candle that not only smells delicious but has a beautiful backstory, too.

So This Is Love” represents the pure love the owner of M+M felt once becoming a mother. She describes it as an evolving love story grounded in an unbreakable, beautiful, bond. (Can you imagine a better gift to give to your own mom, or any of your friends who are moms?)

The fragrance contains notes of tart gooseberries, crisp apple, pear, and citrus with green and floral notes of rose, jasmine and geranium, and the warmth of balsam, rhubarb and musk.

2. A Cozy Cardigan


Give the gift of style and coziness with a cardigan from Nicole J Boutique, one of our local go-to-shopping spots.

NJB’s selection of cardigans range from classic neutrals to fun color block prints. And she even has leopard for ladies who love animal print.

3. A Sweet Heart Themed Treat


Not that we need an excuse to go to Half Baked Patisserie, but if you’ve never been, there’s no better time than Valentine’s Day to snag a sweet treat for your BFF.

Their daily menu includes a wide range of freshly baked gourmet cupcakes and cake pops. And currently they have a variety of Valentine-themed sweet treats while supplies last. Preorders are highly recommended.

Also keep them in mind for special events. They recently did my baby shower and their shower treats not only were gorgeous, but so yummy. (Note: Orders over a dozen require a 24 hour pre-order).

4. An Airbrush Spray Tan

There’s something about having a bronze glow that instantly makes you feel relaxed and happy, even if you didn’t take a trip to the islands.

Give the gift of sun-kissed skin THE HEALTHY WAY with an airbrush spray tan from Walkin On Sunshine. Choose from a variety of packages.

5. Gift Certificates Make Great Gifts, Too


From lashes to facials to brows, a La Belle gift certificate gives the recipient endless options. Available online and in-store for purchase.
