Give the Gift of Love This Valentine’s Day


When done right, gift giving is an art form, and giving the perfect gift to that special someone on Valentine’s Day can really make a statement about how you feel. But what is the perfect gift? Personally, I’m not the flowers, chocolates, and perfume kind of girl, but give me something thoughtful, experiential, or personalized, and I feel all warm and fuzzy inside. How about your valentine?

Know Your Giftee

Everyone is unique, so when you’re giving a gift to your valentine, you really need to think about how best to make that person smile. What do they like to do in their spare time? Where do they like to go? What are their dreams? What do they really want or need? There are so many questions just like these that you can ask to really get to the heart of what makes your valentine tick and feel appreciated.

Awesome Options on Spots On The FOX

Once you have a handle on the perfect idea for your valentine, where do you go to get it? Don’t just go to some big box store where everyone can get the same gift. Go unique and go local! That makes Spots On The FOX the ideal place to shop. With so many unique vendors, the options are endless, which makes creating that smile-inducing gesture easy to do. 

To get you started, here are just a few ideas that jumped out at me. (Trust me, this just scratches the surface!) Then take some time and search for yourself; only you know what will fill the heart of your valentine. 

  • Spa and Self-Care—If your valentine is into relaxation and pampering, you’ll find several amazing products available from vendors like Rose Essentials, Sudzy Bums, and Rustic Moon among others.
  • Healing Stones—If the power of healing stones in jewelry form makes your valentine smile, vendors like Earth Karma and Adelu Jewelry provide beautiful bracelets made with stones that carry properties, like inspiration or peace, for the wearer.
  • Handmade Warm Goods—If your valentine just loves being surrounded in warmth and coziness, consider amazing crochet and knit products, including gorgeous wearables from the Classy Crafty Wife, coffee cozies from 3ChickswithSticks, and even hand and foot warmers from Namma’s Spot.
  • Romance Books—For valentines that are avid readers, a book is a “novel” idea, especially one with a little romance from author Victoria J. Hyla. Or search for some cute bookish décor from The Pretty Peony Co
  • Florals, Art, and Decor—Instead of flowers that only last a week, get blooms for your valentine that will last. Find wood flower arrangements by Wood Blossom Creations, gorgeous paintings from Hummingbird Hope Art and Lina’s Paintings, and home décor items from Studio Patty D and Today’s Fancy.
  • Candles—If your valentine truly is a candle fanatic, find their perfect gift from vendors like Wicks and Wax, Premier Homegoods, and Small Dog Candle Co and Market among others.
  • Tasty Treats—If food is the way to your valentine’s heart, look no further! Give the gift of decadent macarons from Busy E’s Macarons, wonderful desserts from the Pound Cake Lady, and wine gift boxes and other confections from What A Delightful Treat. Or even go the savory route with amazing spreads from Boujee Boards and More
  • Cards—Don’t forget to include that special card with your gift. Consider a special handmade one from vendors like The Creative Type. Silly or sweet, there’s an option for everyone.
