February 14 is right around the corner — do you know what you’re getting your significant other?
This year, instead of opting for the traditional flowers and chocolate, show your love (and support small businesses!) by going unconventional. From bacon-scented candles to hand-dyed scarves, we’ve got you covered with this Valentine’s Day gift guide.
If you want to go the food route, you can’t go wrong with this popcorn gift set. Salted caramel? Check. Truffle Fromage Porcini? Check. Your partner’s undying appreciation? Check.
Does your significant other like the smell of gummy bears? Lavender? Bacon? Money? Madison Valley Candles offers over 100 fragrances you can choose from, so it’s the perfect opportunity to show you really know your loved one.
In addition to being beautiful, the product description for this necklace says that the stones used “attract prosperity and good luck,” so really, you’re giving the gift that keeps on giving! That’s a win.
Purse & Clutch works directly with artisans in Guatemala and Ethiopia to help end the cycle of poverty, so you can feel extra-good about buying their beautiful bags, wallets, and accessories. Just to recap, here’s who wins when you buy with Purse & Clutch:
Can’t afford to whisk your significant other off for a romantic getaway? The Rose Delight candle from Candle Delirium is inspired by Turkish delight, a Middle Eastern sweet, and will envelop any room in rose, honey, and lemon. We’re sure Edmund from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe would approve of this gift choice.
You know that warm feeling you get when you think of your significant other? They probably feel the same way thinking about you, but you should give them this jacket anyway — for those times that warm feeling isn’t enough to keep you from freezing in sub-30 degree weather.
Chocolates? That’s been done before. Treat your significant other to something new with a box of luxurious caramels in amazing flavors like Craft Beer & Pretzel, “Old Fashioned” Cocktail, and Hand-Crushed Espresso. In your partner’s eyes, the only thing sweeter than these handmade caramels will be you!
