Worried about allergies? They are happy to create custom assortments.

      We love hearing about others that followed their dream! Molly and Me Pecans makes farm fresh gourmet pecans in several different flavors in a cookhouse right on our farm in South Carolina. We love what we do! Thank you for supporting small business.

      I agree with Kathleen at Alice’s Flower Shop…

      ~also, your photo on the article was a photo of a flower shop, but no flower shop made your suggestion list!

      In addition to the chocolates and candy, one of the greatest pleasures is having an excellent cup of tea! Support ethical sourcing + small farms by giving your Valentine and loved ones unique, artisan tea blends from this small, mission-driven business. All teas are all organic, handcrafted, and small-batch. Made with fresh, locally grown herbs and botanicals like hand-cut ginger root and California Elderberry Flowers. Definitely try the signature Chai blend and elevate your cup of tea to the next level. Truly amazing tea.

      My handcrafted jewelry in Newburyport or online is the perfect Valentines Day place to shop for reasonable gifts with style! Our local small business owners really appreciate a town that shops local! #pamolderdesigns #perfectgifts #shop small

        Thanks for sharing your business Kelly!

      Be sure when you order your Valentine’s flowers, you order from a real, local, brick and mortar flower shop like ours.
      Fresher flowers, better customer service and hand-delivered, not a shipping box left on her doorstep in 20 degree weather.

      The Golden Fig is genuinely unique.
      This place is pretty awesome too. Worth browsing at least.

      The Steampunk Valentine is a real working mechanized valentine card, totally unique among the pantheon of perfect gifts!
