Roses are a classic gift, but sometimes you want to give something with a little extra pizzaz. Here are a few suggestions to put a twinkle in the eye of that special someone, all from local small businesses of course.

 Katherine Jetter Heart Pendant

Give a little bit of heart this Valentine’s Day. Mothers, wives, daughters, no matter who the girl is, they would all adore a Katherine Jetter Heart Pendant. The couture designer has shaped precious gemstones into the symbol of adoration with her Queen of Hearts Collection.

Looking for something extra special? Inquire about a custom design. When working with Katherine on a one-of-a-kind piece there is no limitation!

   Local Hand-Crafted Chocolates

Okay, so you have a chocolate lover in your life? Then give them a real treat from any of these Massachusetts-based chocolatiers. Just try not to eat them before you gift them.

Purefections – Belgian artisanal chocolates made by two sisters in Quincy.

Chocolate Therapy – Decadent truffles produced in Framingham by a husband and wife team. 

Goodnow Farms Chocolate – Award-winning chocolate crafted in Sudbury from ethically sourced and quality cacao beans.

A Gift Certificate to

Laced Luxury Sneaker Boutique

Lace up that relationship with a gift certificate to the luxury sneaker and streetwear store, Laced. If your guy (or gal) loves sneakers, Laced will become their new Mecca. This place kicks it hard. From rare Jordans to other hard-to-find sneakers, their eyes are going to pop! And hey, if you want to treat yourself to a pair, we won’t judge. After all, self-love is big in the 21st century.
