Get creative this Valentine’s Day with one of these sweet and thoughtful gifts that go beyond the candy and flowers.
Vintage Key Necklace
This upcycled jewelry piece by local artist Vault 31 features a vintage skeleton key with recycled leather and bullet rhinestones. This beautiful item can be the source of many a charming “key to my heart” romantic pun this Valentine’s Day. Find them at Dwell Furniture and Home Décor for $28–$39.
Swedish Dream Soap
Available in three oceanic scents (sea salt, seaweed or sea aster), these divine Swedish soaps will elevate every bath or shower. One of the best gifts you can give a partner is the gift of luxury and relaxation. Provide both with one or all of these soaps. Find them at Designs of Sweden for $7.95 each.
Here’s an idea. This year, create something beautiful for your partner. Find a vintage piece of furniture and use chalk paint to upcycle it. Redecorate something you already own to make it more unique. Or give the paint and supplies as the gift, then enjoy painting something together, a fun, romantic project for crafty couples. Find the supplies at Mama’s Happy for $12.95–$38.95.
Rotating Carousel Candle Holder
This eclectic decoration features a candleholder at the base and a beautiful rotating top, which starts moving as soon as the candle’s heat hits the turbine. This particular Valentine-inspired design features delicate birds and hearts floating atop the candle for an original home decoration item. Find it at Designs of Sweden for $15.
