Valentine’s Day is here and it isn’t too late to support your favorite local shops while spoiling the special lady in your life!  Check out some of our suggestions below, and see our complete list of local shops here!

Find THE gift

If you’re looking for a unique item that is going to be THE gift she wants for Valentine’s Day, then you’re covered.  Objects of Desire Artful Living is full of gifts hitting all price points and for any interest.  Creative Fringe recently expanded and moved to Main Street – see what is filling their new storefront (spoiler: a lot of great gifts).  RooBarb Studios is always a safe bet when looking for a gift for the woman in  your life.  Pick up hand-stamped jewelry, candles, Mud Pie, or a Sid Dickens tile!  Smarty Pants Findlay may not be where you think you can pick up a gift for the adult woman in your life, but Smarty Pants has a large selection of books and games for adults too!

Creative Fringe is full of eclectic gifts, most of which with a local connection!

Artistic Expression

From classes at Findlay Art League to an adult-only Friday evening at Painters’ Pottery is a great way to treat the woman in your life to an evening expressing creativity and  having a great time!

Every Friday from 9 p.m. – Midnight is Adults Only at Painters’ Pottery – making it a great chance to use a Valentine’s Day gift certificate!
