Shop local this Valentine’s Day! We seriously find it important to love yourself during the holiday of love. Yes, our sweethearts will get us those flowers, chocolates and love trinkets–but who says you can’t love yourself and show some love to your friends too? Show yourself and loved ones in your life you care by getting them a gift from a local business Hawai‘i!
I love to give gifts. Throughout the year I collect gift ideas for those I care about and who share their interests and desires. My daughter is one of the easiest for me to gift to as she is thirteen and is going through a phase of self discovery! She has so many interests that change everyday and she tells me about them constantly (I don’t know how many times I had to watch some odd video on TikTok, LOL). She also loves to shop and is finding her style–I’m reminded of how I was at her age. I honestly was NOT as stylish and fashion forward as she is. I think the access to technology and the advances in e-commerce have helped her generation explore so many new ideas in their early age. All I had were fashion catalogs and magazines at the grocery store to look at!
Back on the subject–shopping for those we love and ourselves is a nice way to support our local small businesses. Here are some of our picks for local gifts this Valentine's Day!
