Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas: Shop Small Business!

ValentinesSmallBusinessalt

When you think of Valentine’s Day – what do you think of? Your special someone, romance, sparks, dinner, flowers and chocolate right? Well, you had me until the “flowers and chocolate”. Flowers and and chocolate has been the “go-to gift” for years!!! And I’m kind of tired of it. Its been over done, to the point that its now boring and unimaginative. When I am looking to give my “Valentine” a gift, I know he’s going to appreciate something aside from the standard thing. Something that’s thoughtful and creative, something that he’ll instantly know I took the time and invested more into it! Well look no further, I have LOTS of gift ideas in this post, lots of DIFFERENT ones brought to you by small businesses! Now I would consider that a win-win; getting a creative, handmade gift WHILE also supporting small business!!!

Did you know that (worldwide) over 50 million roses are given each year on Valentines Day? That each year men shell out (on average) $130 on cards, candy, flowers, jewellry etc? That more than 36 million heart-shaped boxes of chocolate are sold each year on Valentine’s Day? That 189 million stems of roses are sold each year (in the USA) on Valentine’s Day??? And given the outrageous prices of these popular, go-to item; can you imagine what an impact on our economy and small business it would have, if we ALL purchased handmade for Valentine’s Day??? And don’t forget, you’re getting a hand-crafted item, made with love by someone, not an item made in a factory by “something” – (a machine)~!!!
