Valentine, Be Mine…

If you have someone special in your life, show them you care with a distinctively unique gift from the heart. First take note in what they like or do often. Pay attention to what makes them smile or laugh. Then start looking early. Get some ideas by searching around online, then head to your town’s local stores. Walk around, meet the shop keepers, artists, designers, and craftsmen. Let them know what you’re looking for. If it’s not quite right, ask them to customize it just to make it perfect. If you have no idea at all, give them a budget and a few things to go with, like favorite color, wood, finish, gemstone or metal. Step back and see what they come up with. You might be surprised!

Oh yea, take a neighbor, relative, or friend for a second opinion and company over that cup of coffee and slice of pie.

Here are a few Valentine gift ideas available in Clarksville this season.
