Valentine’s Day is just around the corner — have you thought about how you’ll show your loved ones a little love? We have nine ideas from some of our favorite local shops and businesses!
Local Shop Love: Our Favorite Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas
BOOK LOVE: Head to The Children’s Bookstore in Roland Park to pick up a copy of Matt de la Peña’s book LOVE, illustrated by Loren Long. It recently hit the market and depicts the many ways humans experience love– which carries us from the day we are born throughout the years of our childhood and beyond. While it may be a picture book, it’s definitely not just for kids.
FLUFF LOVE: Skip the chocolate and head straight for the cotton candy! Local company B’more Fluff. This Valentine’s Day they are hand delivering balloon-sized fluff to most areas in the city and Baltimore county. Choose a favorite flavor (pink vanilla, organic vanilla, organic champagne, organic graham cracker, organic marshmallow, and organic cake batter).
