Valentine’s Day is almost here and if you’re stuck on what to buy for your Valentine or Galentine, I can help you!  Chocolates, jewelry, and flowers are nice.  But maybe you want to think out-of-the-box this year.  Lucky for you, you just so happen to know a girl who’s crafted a few special items for this lovefest of a holiday.  Me!

Within the last month or so, I’ve added quite a few items to my shop – several with a Valentine’s Day theme.  While I think that any of the items in my shop would make an excellent gift, I’m going to share a few that have Valentine’s Day written all over them!  Think pink, red, and rosy!

Plus, when you shop my items, you’ll be giving someone a special handmade product that’s – like my shop banner says – “made with love from our home to yours.”  Each item in my shop has been personally prepared and packaged by me.

Unique Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

Many of these items are made with garden grown herbs and flowers or sourced from local farms and .  So you’re not only giving someone a special handmade gift, you’re giving them a touch of nature, too.
